In this report, I will cover:
- Las Vegas, Nevada
- San Diego, California
- Carlsbad, California
- Scottsdale, Arizona
- Mexico City, Mexico
Getting There: From McCarran International Airport as of writing this post your best bet is to hope for an honest taxi since Uber is frowned upon in Vegas. The fare varies on the integrity of the driver but getting from LAS to the Hyatt Place should not cost more than $10. On the way back to the airport, I took the free hotel shuttle.
The Hyatt Place Las Vegas Review: No Dice but why?
- The Casino
The title is applicable because there is no casino at the Hyatt Place. This is to be expected but the absence of gambling does not mean that the hotel can’t be nice. (see THEhotel at Mandalay Bay.)
- The Location
The Hyatt Place is located next to the Hard Rock which would be convenient if it was a decade ago and the Rehab pool party was still cool.
- The Quiet
If you’re looking for quiet and isolation then you shouldn’t go to Vegas in the first place. The isolation and quiet of this hotel in particular made an energetic city seem depressing.
- Just Another Hyatt Place
The Hyatt Place Las Vegas is just another Hyatt Place, a chain that pales in comparison to the Hyatt House. There’s nothing wrong with the brand but there’s nothing impressive either. It’s basically an upscale Hampton Inn. The room is large, the couch is welcoming, and the bed is comfortable. If I was a business traveler in Omaha, Nebraska then I’d appreciate the amenities of the Hyatt Place. As for a location in Vegas, I find it to be pointless (aside from the Diamond Challenge).
Here are the pictures of the hotel of which I was a resident for a mere two hours thanks to Vegas being Vegas.
