U.S. News Review

Sidling up next to Ferry Building Marketplace along the Embarcadero, the Hyatt Regency San Francisco earns high praise for its convenient location. Business travelers will find their needs well-met thanks to the hotel's business center, ample meeting space and high-speed Internet access. Sightseers will have the city at their front door, with downtown San Francisco and the city's waterfront attractions just a short walk — or trolley ride — away. This massive Hyatt property houses a whopping 804 guest rooms, all of which feature flat-screen TVs, iHome stereo systems and individual climate controls. However, not all guests were satisfied with the room decor, saying that the accommodations felt rather drab for their lofty rates. But many visitors say that they received a warm welcome from the staff and that the views from this property are hard to beat. While staying here, travelers will have access to the Hyatt Regency's fitness center, as well as its in-house restaurant. And because of its brand ties, Hyatt Gold Passport members can earn and use rewards when bedding down here.

Critic Reviews


“The spectacular 17-story atrium lobby, reportedly the largest hotel lobby in North America, is a marvel, with water elements, sprawling trees, a shimmering stream, a huge fountain, and the sleek Eclipse restaurant and bar. ”


“Gracious service makes the towering, austere ... Hyatt Regency feel almost cozy. ”


“Rooms are well equipped and very spacious, and many have bay views. Given the size of the rooms, the Hyatt Regency is the cost-efficient choice for families wanting to stay in the neighborhood.”
