A brand new property (August 2012) in the heart of downtown Delray Beach, the Hyatt Place is a pleasant hotel which marries spacious rooms, courteous service and bright, funky décor in a modern, bright building which is easy to access. Although we encountered a few teething problems, this is to be expected from a fledgling hotel and the small errors were corrected speedily and graciously. Although the hotel lacks a full service restaurant and is a bit of a walk from the beach, it does have several snack options, a complete bar and easy access to the wealth of restaurants in the town as well as a smart outdoor pool and fitness room. More for couples and friends than for families, the Hyatt Place is a safe bet and a reliable product.

    Location 8.84 /10

    The Hyatt Place is situated at the corner of NE 2nd Avenue and NE 1st Street in the Pineapple Grove Arts District of downtown Delray Beach. Off of the main drag, it's surrounded by galleries, restaurants and bars and a few salons (for doggies too!). It's a pretty calm location away from the hubbub of Atlantic Avenue although getting to the beach would take around 20 minutes by foot (which feels even longer in the blistering heat). Driving from both Palm Beach International Airport (19 miles) and Fort Lauderdale Hollywood International Airport (33 miles) is quick and easy on the wide motorways.

    Accommodation 8.20 /10

    To all intents and purposes the 130 odd guestrooms at the Hyatt Place are the same. Some have queen beds, some have king, others are lightly larger to accommodate wheelchairs while some have a boardroom table for business meetings. However the décor remains consistent throughout and there are no categories as such. Rooms look out either on to the road or over the swimming pool although none have spectacular views as buildings are not permitted to be high enough in Delray Beach. That said, they each have large windows and plenty of natural light. All rooms (aside from a few) are composed of a bedroom and partially separate living space. The former has the double bed dressed in nice white linens and Hyatt plaid with a bedside table either side with telephone and clock/MP3 player. The furniture, all in a light coloured wood, consists of a spacious wardrobe (complete with safe and iron and ironing board) and large writing desk, while the upholstery is a brown-grey colour. You'll also find a 42" flatscreen television, another cordless telephone, tea and coffee maker, fridge and data ports and sockets of all kinds. Over in the living area is a corner couch which doubles as a bed for extra guests as well as a small cupboard in which you'll find extra bedding. The mainly white bathrooms are sufficiently large and have a generous walk-in shower big enough for two. There is a good selection of toiletries, a hairdryer and a well-lit mirror as well as several lighting options (the switches for which can be a bit tricky). The rooms we found to be quiet and functional and comfortable.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The perfectly symmetrical building, in various shades of yellow, comes to a circular point at the corner of the street just off the main drag. You'll notice that a lot of glass has been used in the construction allowing plenty of natural light to flow into the hotel. The main entrance is on NE 2nd avenue, although there is another at the corner with NE 1st Street. Here you can pull up in your own car or be dropped us by a taxi or the Delray Downtowner. Inside, the vast lobby, also known as the Gallery is split into two halves, with the reception desk in front of you as you enter. To the right-hand side is a complimentary business centre where guests can use the internet and print off documents as well as a communal lounge complete with flatscreen television. Over to the other side of the hall is a spacious seating area with a bar and breakfast area, the Skillet (see 'Food and Drink'). Being a brand new building and, it must not be forgotten, a chain hotel, there is not a huge amount of character in the décor, however the space is comfortable and spacious and a certain sense of arrival can be felt, in no small part thanks to the friendly staff who do go out their way to make your stay a pleasant one.

    In terms of fitness and wellness, the hotel boasts an outdoor swimming pool shaded on one side by the building itself so in the early to late afternoon you can choose whether to be directly in the sun or in the shade. It is kept clean and tidy and there are towels available free of charge for guests in a cupboard just by the pool. Of course plenty of loungers and parasols are put out by the pool for guests to sunbathe and catch up on a bit of reading, while just adjacent to the pool is a hot tub. Back inside the hotel, on the same level as the pool, there is a top-of-the-range, fully-equipped fitness room with both cardio and weights machines.

    Of course being a new hotel its condition was near perfect but we also noticed how well it was kept in terms of cleanliness and tidiness. The common areas are both comfortable and easy to negotiate and getting to your room (via the two lifts) is quick and simple with clear indications upon exiting the elevators. There is complimentary wifi throughout the hotel as well as secure private parking (for a fee). Up to two pets are allowed in each guestroom with a $150 cleaning fee applying to the first and a further $50 fee to the second.

    Food and drink 6.20 /10

    While the Hyatt Place doesn't have a restaurant per se, food is available 24 hours a day (this is America after all!). A complimentary breakfast buffet is laid on in the Skillet adjacent to reception and offers a continental breakfast of cereals, pastries, breads, fruit, yoghurt and juices along with a couple of hot breakfast sandwiches with eggs and bacon. A separate tea and coffee station is also at guests' disposal while you can take a seat wherever you like in the lobby, including on the high communal table. If you require some sustenance during the day then you can pick up something from the grab 'n' go at reception. Here you'll find sandwiches, snacks and soft drinks, although if you feel like something more substantial then you can always order something hot such as chicken wings, nachos, burgers, pizzas and soups in addition to salads and a selection of wine and beers. Of course you can take any of this up to your room as you can any take away orders from local restaurants.

    To know

    Opened just a week before our stay in mid-August 2012, the Hyatt Place was a new build property. Not being located on the seafront can be a bit of an issue when you want to get to the beach but you don't have a car and the sun is beating down. Well, there is a solution. The Delray Downtowner is a free electric cart transfer service which takes you anywhere within the downtown area. Simply ask someone at reception to dial them for you and within a few minutes they'll be there to drop you off at the beach or wherever else you need to head.
