Oyster Hotel Review

Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa

What Are the Design and Scene Like at Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa?

Family-friendly upscale beach hotel with lots of on-site amenities and close to all the action

The 17-story Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa towers like a pink sandcastle across the street from the tranquil waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Designed to maximize beach and sunset views, many of the hotel’s public areas, including the expansive eighth-floor pool deck, overlook the sea and sand below.

The lobby features high two-story ceilings, a grand staircase leading to the mezzanine, and huge windows overlooking the street. Decor is beachy and contemporary, with a soft ocean-inspired palette that combines blue, gray, and coral hues. Large prints of tropical leaves can be found on the walls, and there is a stylish sitting area with a clean-lined wooden couch placed over a plush rug with a coral-like motif, and a couple of velvet armchairs in Prussian blue.

The hotel caters to all types of travelers: from families and couples seeking a beach vacation to guests traveling on business who wish to take advantage of the hotel's meeting spaces. Prices are competitive for an upscale property but can get high during the busy season.

What Are Rooms Like at Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa?

Large, stylish rooms with private balconies and cooking facilities; many offer full Gulf views

The hotel has a total of 287 units, ranging from 400-square-foot King Rooms to huge 1,500-square-foot two-bedroom suites. Decor is contemporary and stylish across the board, with soft gray and blue carpets, crisp white bedding that stands out against the gray padded bedframes and headboards, and a few wooden accents on walls and bedside tables. All rooms and suites have outdoor spaces -- furnished balconies with partial or full Gulf views in most rooms and suites, and large terraces of up to 600 square feet in Terrace Suites.

Standard amenities include flat-screen TVs, safes, toiletries, and free Wi-Fi. Rooms feature kitchenettes with microwaves, coffeemakers, and mini-fridges (most also have cooktops), while suites have full kitchens with dishwashers, and living rooms with dining areas.

Bathrooms are clean and spacious, if a little bit bland, with beige tiles on floors and tubs. Granite counters over white wooden vanities and backlit mirrors add some style. Bathroom configurations vary between rooms; while some have shower/tub combos, others have walk-in showers and two sinks.
