Rooms at the Hyatt Regency are designed to feature sitting areas with 42-inch flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi and small refrigerators. There are 505 rooms, including 19 suites. Rooms with Capitol views are generally more expensive than non-view rooms.
Standard rooms are 375 square feet and provide a king or two double beds.
Deluxe rooms are larger, with 470 square feet, but only a king bed.
Suites are nearly 600 square feet and provide a living area with dining table for six and a king bed. These rooms can connect to a standard room with two double beds to create a two-bedroom suite that can accommodate six or seven people. The Regency Club, located on a private floor, provides complimentary breakfast and evening hors d'ouevres and cocktails for guests with these rooms. The standard rooms are located on an upper floor with views of the Capitol or the city.
Mattress was lumpy and very uncomfortable. Couldn’t sleep well and woke up with back pain. Bathroom sink was slow-draining, indicating some sort of an unaddressed plumbing issue. Three of the 4 elevators were out of service due to water leaking into the elevators. Hotel did not offer any free meal or discount to make up for the inconvenience!
Loved this hotel! Would totally stay again and genius with the Starbucks next door! Love, love, love! Please don't require 200 character minimum, doesn't take much to say you guys rock. Now i'm just typing to type LOL

The Art of Smart Timing
