Nice hotel. Public beach access and overcrowed.

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: The hotel staff is nice and helpful.
Cons: Make sure locals can't get into the hotel. Have floors in the parking garage, elevator and section on the beach that only hotel guests can use.
Location: Too busy and overcrowded with rude and dirty people who have no respect for our planet and othe human beings.
The hyatt is nice. The staff is amazing, but this does not make up for the fact that the parking garage is open to the public and the beach is free and open to the public. If you can look past the litter (disposal cups, dirty diapers and vomit), the beach is lovely. The parking garage is very busy and if often time consuming to exit. The elevators are full of smelly beach goers. I think the hyatt should have floors in the parking garage, elevators and a portion of the beach just for hyatt guests...considering we pay a fortune to be there. Also, I don't like how people not staying at the hotel are often inside the hyatt to use the washrooms. The beach is nice in the morning but after about noon it is too busy and overcrowded with rude and gross people. I will never bring my family to Clearwater beach again. We tried to go to the pool in the afternoon to escape the craziness at the beach but it too was all jammed although the hotel crowd was more decent than the beach crowd. People love free access and I would rather pay a little extra to ensure a clean and relaxing stay. There is a heavy police presence everywhere which makes me think the area is unsafe. Never again!

Great but right in the middle of public beach

Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: the staff was excellent, the food was great and the room is perfect, clean, big and comfortable.
Cons: Nothing is wrong with the hotel, except its location.
Location: It is on top of a big surf/ t shirt shop, there are about 4 restaurants within a walk (.4 of a mile) and many more within a mile, heart of Clearwater
This is good and bad. It was easy to get to everything, almost with a walk to restaurants and typical surf shop /t shirt type stores. However, it is the closest hotel to the center driving circle and main parking for the beach. So the beach (which is a walk across the street from the hotel) is packed with anyone driving to the beach for the day. So very crowded. Now the beach is clean, big and has nice spots to clean off your feet and life guards because it is the public part. It just is a give and take and if you want a quiet walk on the beach you have to go miles away.

Nice, but misleading pictures

Posted Jul 13, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Sleeper sofa mattress is a torture item.
Location: Multiple activities in the area, and Tampa is not too far away
While legally correct, "steps to the beach" omits the fact you have to cross a street to get to the beach. The facility is approaching renovation time as there are several signs of wear & tear. Overall a good experience, but the beach is PACKED on weekends, so get a spot early.

Excellent trip

Posted Jul 7, 2014
The views were incredible. Our only complaint is that the hot tub closes at 10pm, especially during a holiday weekend it should be opened later. The food at SHOR was absolutely delicious and the room was perfect.

Best in Clearwater Beach

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Location, view and service.
Cons: Parking, it takes too long to get from your car to your room because of having to take 2 elevators.
Location: Location is great, right in the middle of everything. You can walk south and find restaurants and stores and you can walk north and find more bars.
I just came back from a 4th of July weekend in Clearwater Beach, Florida and this hotel made it a perfect stay. My room was in the 17th floor (1736 to be accurate), which is the top floor in the hotel. The view to the ocean was amazing and the balcony had a table that fit 6 people, plus couches. Two beds, a living a room, kitchen (with all appliances), and two bathrooms, made this a perfect stay for a group of 4 people. The pool is beautiful and it was never crowded. I tried the churrasco sandwich at the hotel's restaurant and it was pretty good (I recommend it). The beach is walking distance and I got to watch the fireworks from the 16th floor Sky Terrace (they have a bar).

Hyatt Resort Clearwater

Posted Jul 6, 2014
It took awhile to actually receive the dvd player that I requested a day before check- in. The room was not up to par as far as cleanliness. I had to call for tv repair and for the one vent to ne dusted in.bathroom. looks as if it was never cleaned since the grand opening of hotel. My cleaning would take foot towels and kitchen towel without replacement. I walked in ony cleaning lady using my phone charger for her own phone. I found that to be a bit disturbing and rude. Made me wonder if she would look through our stuff.

Nice hotel. Beach access. They charge $25 a day for things like wifi, beach towels, chairs, etc. They also charge for cabanas/umbrellas on the beach. I think for the price, this should be included and not snuck into the bill at the end of your stay...

Beautiful hotel, great views, wonderful room.

Posted Jul 3, 2014
Pros: The location and proximinity to the beach were fabulous.
Cons: Would have liked the pool to stay open a little later, say around 10:00 p.m.
Location: Lots of places within walking distance and the Jolly Trolly was handy too. We visited the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, an easy drive.
Room amenities were just what we needed. The kitchen was a huge plus, especially with the kids.
