I’m sure no one cares to read about the Hyatt Regency in downtown Miami. Most people who do visit this terrible city will not be staying downtown anyway (see Air TPOL Retiring From Travel). I am only writing it because of a phenomenon called blogger’s guilt, whereby every international Flight, Hotel, and Lounge must be documented for completeness. Let’s get this over with.
As I wrote, the Hyatt Regency is located in downtown Miami, an area as boring as downtown Phoenix.
The hotel is connected to a convention center. If you’re staying here for a convention, you probably are getting a corporate rate and won’t care that the hotel is popcorn ceiling dated.
The suite was standard.
Replacing a shower head and an elongated the curtain rod does is not a bathroom renovation. Shower curtains are disgusting and have no place in the world.
Although I am not Globalist yet (see Becoming Hyatt Globalist Again: TPOL’s Masterpiece Strategy), I was given free breakfast. It was terrible. The OJ was Tropicana and the breakfast burrito received one bite.
With my early arrival, I was unable to check-in right away. I used the free time to explore the Riverwalk. It’s not San Antonio (River Walk! TPOL’s San Antonio Food & Drink Guide), but looking at the water is nicer than looking at this ugly downtown.
- 12k points a night is a decent value (see Booking Miami: I’m as Frugal As Ever).
- Wynwood is close by if you’re looking for a points option near that area.
- The pool in the building across from my room.
Review done. Will you be staying here? Of course you won’t be.
