My Review of the Hyatt Regency Austin

IMG_2025

The Hyatt Regency Austin has a wonderful location right next to the city’s urban jewel – the river walk. In fact, you can sit on the outdoor patio (or by the pool) and ogle the joggers passing by there.

Check-in was in typical Hyatt fashion – friendly, knowledgeable and fast. Everything was set and done in less than 2 minutes; there was no crazy back and forth.

The building itself will remind you much of the Hyatt Regency San Francisco at the Embarcadero and the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk; maybe the developer liked the architect a bit too much? It certainly looks grand but there is so much wasted space inside and the lobby noise easily spreads all across the building.

The room assigned to me was typical Hyatt Regency style – both the colors and the setup; sometimes it’s hard to remember what city you are in. Everything worked perfectly to a T. The Internet was free to connect to with any email address you provided, the bed was perfectly hard and soft and the AC cooled down the room effortlessly.

The shower needed a bit more pressure but that’s about the only negative I could find.

The Hyatt Regency in Austin is not cheap and charges $200++ rates for most days. Parking is $36 and the food isn’t cheap either (though there are plenty of existing places to eat within a 20-minute walking distance radius). Given how much there is to do in Austin, you won’t spend much time inside.

I would happily return to this Hyatt Regency anytime, though this is true for me with most Hyatts 🙂
