Horribly slow check in. Sole female employee was so slow that a line formed going all the way out the door. Her lack of appropriate hustle was infuriating. Several guests were visibly irritated. We definitely were. Bed was horrible. The side closest to the bathroom had a dip in it. Bed was hard because of the lack of firmness to the overall feel as well as the lack of soft give to support and cradle curves. Both my husband and I slept very poorly. I did appreciate the access to plug in to the TV. Breakfast was tolerable at best. Hard potatoes as they were not fresh and strawberries were over-ripe. The fresh food was either to ripe or not ripe enough. I have stayed a several Hyatt Place Hotels and this one has to be the worst.
Great location. Nice staff. Clean rooms, You must pay to park in a parking garage. Rate is 12>00 per day. Shuttle service at hotel is not dependable. Some times we were waiting almost an hour. They only have one van and not enough staff to operate a service.
