Having got a call from FOX News to participate in a special segment on Happening Now discussing airline collusion, I booked myself in the Hyatt Regency Washington DC, steps away from the FOX building where I’d need to be.

The hotel is visibly on the older side (on the outside), though is convenient to government buildings and Union Station. I wish they would spruce it up a bit more. Entering, you walk down a set of escalators to the front desk.

This hotel does a great job of elite recognition, with a Hyatt Gold Passport elite counter, as well as regular desks, too.

Checking in, I was notified of my Regency Club access privileges as a Diamond, as well as offered complimentary bottles of water and packaged nuts, which I thought was a nice touch.

My room was a regular king room – nothing special or out of the ordinary. Good size, but no view. I believe the hotel was overly crowded during my one night stay, so a Diamond upgrade was really not available, which I was okay with considering my short-stay circumstances.

The bathroom was a decent size, featuring a stand in shower and large sink. I appreciated the walk-in shower, vs. tub.

The Regency Club on the same floor as my room featured complimentary breakfast in the morning and heavy appetizers in the evening. I didn’t really partake in breakfast the next morning other than grabbing a yoghurt. The Club was of a good size, and did offer all-day non-alcoholic beverages for the taking.

Oddly, the club became more crowded after breakfast hours, so it looked like several people had missed breakfast and the attendant in the kitchen was trying to scrounge up some last minute items.

My Take

Overall, this was not a bad property and I’d stay here again. I was very pleased with the service, especially of the recognition at the front desk, where the agents were over the top friendly, which is sometimes hit or miss in Hyatt Regency properties.

I’d stay in this hotel if…

  • You need to be at the Capitol or surrounding government buildings
  • You are transferring to and from Union Station

I wouldn’t recommend this hotel for…

  • Staying right near nightlife and sights. It’s a bit of a walk or Metro ride away
