Located on the bay side of Dewey Beach, the Hyatt Place offers comfortable, oversized guestrooms, perfect for families of four or more. Guestrooms feature a large sectional or corner sleeper sofa and a mini-fridge. The free breakfast, free Wi-Fi and one parking spot are ideal for families, as well.
Families will love the kayak and paddleboard rentals only steps away from the hotel and they can paddle from a launch site in the bay, where the waters are calm. Or cross the main thoroughfare for the beach and Atlantic Ocean, which are a short walk from your hotel room. And if that’s not enough water fun, the indoor pool will keep kids swimming, too.

The oversized guestrooms feature one king or two queen beds. There is a corner sleeper sofa in a separate living space that provides plenty of seating for the family, along with a coffee table/ottoman bench. The swivel flat-screen television is also nice. No matter where you're sitting in the room, the TV can be visible. A mini-fridge and single-cup coffeemaker are also featured in the guestrooms. The modern bathroom with a sliding door features a stand-up shower.
We were in Delaware for a lacrosse tournament and are so glad we selected the Hyatt place! The pull out beds allowed for more kids per room, without sharing beds! The hotel was super clean and well cared for. The staff was helpful, even texting us before our late arrival to see if they could help! The views were unreal at the beach a short walk across the street and the back bay views stunning! So much was closed due to the mid-November stay around the hotel, but Rehoboth was a very short drive away with plenty of options along a walkable area! Breakfast was ready early each day and coffee was hot and ready by 6. Would highly recommend for a great stay at a fantastic price!
The Hyatt Place Dewey Beach is a fantastic location between the bay and the beach; it's a beautiful new building and our room was spacious and well designed. The hotel has great amenities and the staff is courteous and helpful. The breakfast is exceptional.
The beach is a short walk from the hotel. Families will have to cross Coastal Highway (a four-lane major thoroughfare) to get to the beach. However, there is a crosswalk directly in front of the hotel. The wide beaches and Atlantic Ocean are perfect on a sunny day.
The indoor heated pool is a great place to get in even more swimming if the ocean is not enough or if it's a rainy day. The pool is located on the first floor of the hotel and is open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Pool towels and plenty of chairs are available on the pool deck.
Ask at the front desk to play any number of the board games available to guests.

The Art of Smart Timing
Most crowds visit Dewey Beach in the summer months, but there are several spring and fall festivals and events that keep people coming to the Hyatt Place throughout the year.
Dewey Beach is situated between Rehoboth Beach and Fenwick Island and is about an hour south of Dover, Delaware. The Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport, located in Maryland, is about an hour from Dewey and offers connecting flights from Philadelphia or Baltimore. Philadelphia International Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport are both about two and half hours away.
Once you have arrived in Dewey, it's easily walkable. Families can walk to the beach, restaurants and shops with ease. However, the main thoroughfare is a four-lane highway. There are sidewalks, but strollers are a good idea for wandering toddlers or younger kids. A car is needed to venture further away from the hotel or outside of Dewey Beach.
For Mom and Dad
Coffee to Cocktails
Adults will love the beverage station in the lobby. The day starts with coffee and ends with complimentary beer, wine and cocktails. So enjoy a complimentary happy hour after a day at the beach.
