Seldom in major downtown areas can one find a conglomeration of accessibility, space, comfort and luxury, but the Hyatt Regency of Phoenix offers this and much more. The hotel offers over 600 rooms and stands as an impressive monolith on the city skyline right in the heart of the action. Phoenix is a picturesque and sprawling city and this is one of the best spots from which to view it.
From outside the building is impressive and domineering, inside it is not short on space either but it is well decorated and the arrangements are inviting and artistic, especially the lobby. The reception desk, waiting area, concierge desk and several other amenities make for a large lobby full of color, art and comfortable corners of relaxation. The darker tones and the abundant complimentary water invite one after any time outside in the desert heat. There is a good reason for the large nature of the lobby and the hotel in general. It is located directly across the street from the huge and modern convention center of Phoenix. Constantly stocked with events, expo’s and conferences the hotel is a natural choice for accommodations.
Rooms soar skywards and offer views of the valley beyond or the downtown below. Whichever way one faces the sun bathes everywhere in light. Rooms are varied between standard, business, deluxe, studio and suites. There is a strong emphasis on handicapped accessibility and the hotel even offers ‘pure rooms’ which is a program from Hyatt for hypo-allergenic guests. Overall the décor is tasteful and up to date. Some guests have found the entertainment and wireless to be limited, however being in the Hyatt rewards program is always a good way to be assured of free wifi.
The hotel prides itself on having an excellent concierge and indeed the dedicated desk area is impressive. They even have an e-concierge program that allows you to get your schedule on track even before you arrive. There is no shortage of things to see and do in this location, both inside and out. Inside the hotel one can enjoy two grill based restaurants, two excellent cafes for good atmosphere and quick bites and the pool is a great place for a dip while the fitness center is modern and offers great views. Even for business and social affairs there are plenty of amenities too. Social events such as catering needs, meetings, a full business center, an Enterprise car rental desk and the interior 8 story atrium with elevators are all impressive interior aspects.
As for the address and downtown activities the hotel is second to none. The convenient location is within a walk of plenty of restaurants, events and cultural attractions to explore. Perhaps even one can catch an exhibition or display you weren’t planning on, when you find something interesting happening at convention center. Nearby golf and exploring packages are always a possibility as is the city’s vibrant nightlife.
