We just returned from a stay at the Hyatt Huntington Beach Resort; first visit to this property. We arrived at 1pm this past Saturday and tried to get an early-checkin; unfortunately our room was not ready yet but they did give us temporary keys to go enjoy the Regency Club while waiting (we are Diamond, and were using a suite upgrade so would have had Regency Club access). The Room: The suite, 4366, was top floor overlooking the hot tub and pool; the room was one half living area with couch/chair/desk and the other half bedroom with another small desk nook. The balcony spanned both halves, so a good outside space with a lounge chair for enjoying the sunsets. One thing to note is that this hotel is across the Pacific Coast Highway from the ocean, so while we had a room that was as close to the ocean as you can get (not counting the enormous suites at the end of the hallways) you are also closest to the highway. However, we never really noticed the traffic noise. The in-room wireless was TERRIBLE; very very slow and would occasionally just drop off entirely. Didn't matter the time of day or night; it could not even download email reliably. Our room still had a wired network connection on the desk, which was much better and I used it for most of the stay. The Regency Club: The RC was spacious and never crowded during our stay. Breakfasts included the typical breads and fruits, and I was happily surprised to see a number of cold cuts and a wonderful frittata. We never made it during the dinner period so can't comment on that. We did walk in a couple of times when they were taking the afternoon snacks away; the staff was very accommodating and left everything out for us to take what we wanted. The Spa: Access is open to all guests to use the facilities which include steam room, jacuzzi, sauna, and relaxation areas. The best part of the spa was the common (men and women) outside area with the fireplace and water fountains. The worst part were the complimentary razor blades; my advice: bring your own. Transportation: We had a rental car, and the valet charge per night is $25. Even though, we discovered there is an on-demand shuttle bus that will take you to the downtown Huntington Beach area (intersection of Walnut and 5th, to be exact) and retrieve you when ready to return to the resort (up until 10pm). There is a charge of $2 per person roundtrip, but we felt that it was definitely worth it to not fight traffic and downtown parking. It's a mile or so walk from the resort to downtown, so that is also an option...simply walk out of the back of the resort, cross Pacific Coast Highway via the overpass and then walk along the beach towards the pier into town. Checkout: There is a $23 resort fee for all guests; I asked at checkout if Diamonds have to pay this fee and was told yes. I then asked if there was a discount for Diamonds due to the overlap of Diamond amenities and what the resort fee gets you; she initially said no but when pressed she asked someone else and was told that there is a $7 reduction per night for Diamonds (so $16 per night). So it doesn't seem to be a widely known policy, but it definitely exists. Coffee: As a tremendous coffee-snob, I am always on the lookout for the best cup of coffee near my hotel. About 1/2 mile away from the resort up Beach Blvd is a strip mall with a Big Lots; next to it is a little Italian espresso shop called "Mr. Ps Espresso". An easy walk, and definitely worth it. Our overall impression of this property was very good. We spent a majority of the time away from the resort, and didn't even use the swimming pool. But the grounds were beautiful, our room comfortable and the staff very accommodating. We would definitely consider staying here again.
