Editor’s Review of Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa4/5
The Hyatt Regency was one of the first major hotel chains to embrace children with Camp Hyatt, and the staff members goes out of their way to ensure children have a fun -- and safe -- vacation experience.
The 250-room hotel is the only waterfront Hyatt on Florida's west coast, and the calm, turquoise Gulf of Mexico waters, coupled with a soft, pristine, white sandy beach, make it a perfect family vacation ... more or even a brief qetaway. In fact, we met several families who live in nearby Tampa and often come for a few days of R&R because they not only love the family-oriented hotel amenities, but also the spacious suites with gourmet kitchens.
"We come here maybe once every two months just to get away but still be close," a poolside Tampa mother told us. "It has all the great kid's activities of a hotel, but the homey feel of a condo. It's the best of both [worlds]. As soon as I walk into the lobby, I relax. And, I don't have to clean up like I would in a condo. We can cook, which saves money, and the refrigerator is big enough to put large wine bottles in, along with milk."
Clearwater Beach is a 3-mile-long, 3-block barrier island that offers a world-class beach, a wide variety of hotel and condo options, as well as the mandatory tourist t-shirt shops, dolphin-sighting cruises and restaurants that compete for the honor of having the best grouper sandwich. Thanks to a$30-million renovation in 2008, there is a delightful Beach Walk, a large palm tree lined walkway, which provides a safe and easy way to walk to activities and just enjoy being outdoors and people watching.
Unlike many other Florida resort areas, Clearwater Beach still has more of a small-town feel to it. High-rise condos do not overwhelm the beach and there are still family-owned hotels nestled next to the Hyatt. It's an eclectic atmosphere where groups of young adults walk into McDonald's only wearing their bathing suits, snowbirds have a cocktail on a restaurant patio and families juggle beach equipment.

RoomsMore like a condo than a standard hotel room, the Hyatt Clearwater's units definitely feel like home. Rooms range from a 600-square-foot studio suite to a 2,000-square-foot deluxe two-bedroom, three bathroom suite.
The open-space floor plan combines a small dinette area next to a large kitchen, complete with granite countertops, a microwave and coffee maker. It opens up to a large living area with a 42-inch flat-screen TV. A sofa bed accommodates more sleepers. Amenities include a king pillow-top Hyatt Grand Bed fitted with soft linens, plush pillows and thick down blanket; Wi-Fi Internet, a generous work area with an ergonomic chair; full-sized Portico toiletries and an iHome stereo with an iPod docking station.
We stayed in a 1,2000-square foot, two-bedroom suite, where the master bedroom also opened up to the balcony and had a bathroom worthy of a lifestyle magazine feature. A deep bathtub was perfect for a relaxing bubble bath, while a separate shower was roomy with plenty of hot, high-pressure water. The second bedroom was large, comfortable and had a non-attached full bath next to it.
