I recently stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Phoenix, Arizona, and even though I wasn’t there for even an entire night (I had to be flown back to Atlanta that evening, hurray for jet-setting), it was a nice stay. Customer service was first-class at the check-in counter, very professional and attentive. I made a couple of phone calls to the front desk when I got to the room, and the phone was always answered with “How can we help you, Ms. Bengen?”
Phoenix is a funny collection of neighborhoods that kind of all blur together, but as far as I could tell, this hotel was pretty central to everything. It was certainly close to the airport – the ride took less than ten minutes.
I took a short nap in the bed, and it was really big and comfy. I like Hyatt bedding a lot, I’ve discovered. I think I will be treating myself to some Hyatt sheets for Christmas this year. Especially if my dog continues to eat the ones we have.
The pool was on (4th?) floor, and it was a little odd – It was a 3 foot deep “lap pool.” I didn’t care though, the view was nice, the pool area allowed you to look up at some buildings and watch the planes come in which was kind of cool. It was so hot outside though that even this heated pool felt refreshing!
If you need a nice hotel that’s close to the airport, I’d definitely recommend this Hyatt. No complaints! There was some sort of touch-screen contraption by the front desk that might have allowed you to check in yourself, I wasn’t sure, didn’t have time to check it out. I did, however, print out my boarding pass right at the front desk for free which was awesome.
