Disliked: Staff & service
Staff was arrogant and rude
Property was not family friendly
Failed to inform me about parking fee until after check in
No blankets in room
There was nothing around the property/location is not desirable
The over all attitude made me understand why people think there is white privilege ( I am white)
I am a traveling superintendent and stay at hotels for long periods all over the country in all socio economic environments the attitude here was one of eliteism and snobbery I would expect at a ski resort or the ritz in Naples
I may not dress or look wealthy but trust me my family and I can afford your hotel!
Not the first Hyatt to disappoint for similar reasons but at least the last one was in a much more affluent area
Loved the location and friendly staff. The room was very nice. The pool and exercise gym excellent.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The room was spacious and well appointed. I was unhappy that there was an extra $15 charge for valet that made my car inaccessible. I would have rather parked my own car in the area I could see from the lobby and then still have my keys.
