Hey there our cruise is on March 4th and the night of the 3rd we are staying at the Hyatt. I was just wondering if anyone has stayed here and has any comments on this hotel. I would greatly appreciate anything you guys might have. Thank you in advance.

Nice hotel, at least a few years ago when I stayed there, it was. I believe it's walkable to the people-mover, which can take you to Bayside Marketplace, a fun place to shop, with some nice little restaurants, etc.

Hi, we stayed there 2 summers ago. We stayed the night before, and the night after our cruise. The first night was wonderful, a lovely balcony room facing the north/river side of Miami. The second night we stayed, was HORRIBLE. We were in a front/bay view room. That was great. What made it horrible was the drawbrige that sounded like it was in our room. If I remember, we were on a mid-level floor, not too low and not too high. Maybe it would be better the higher the floor, I don't know. Now, I admit I am a light sleeper, and as usual, my husband is not. It even bothered him for awhile till he drifted off to sleep. For me, I had to break out the ear plugs, so I could try to sleep. When the draw bridge is in motion, it alarms. Then it is a steel grated bridge (it looked and SOUNDED like steel), so when a truck/bus or other large vehicle drives over it, it is especially loud. I thought the hotel was great. I would stay there again, and request a room facing the back, and not the bay. The back has nice views of the river and the boats going up and down it. Maybe the noises wouldn't bother you. I am just telling you about our experience. Oh, and the hotel was about a 3-4 short blocks, I thought, to Bayside Marketplace. Have fun on you cruise. Lil' Lori

Lori, now that you mention it, I do remember the drawbridge! We heard its horn mostly, but I think we were on a higher floor, as it was more amusing than annoying to us. Jenny, make sure to ask for a higher floor if you want to avoid drawbridge and/or street noise!

If you're talking about the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Convention Center in Miami, I've stayed there many times for meetings. It's a very nice, big hotel with a restaurant and a bar in the lobby. It's right on Biscayne Blvd, not too far from the causeway that goes to the cruise ships. Rooms are decent.
