Hyatt Place Fort Lauderdale/Plantation guyonthego

Hyatt Place Fort Lauderdale/Plantation is a midrange hotel built in 2000-2001 and which became a Hyatt in 2007. It has 6 floors and 126 rooms. All the rooms here are larger sized with approximately 450 square feet of space. The hotel is nonsmoking, but does accept pets (dogs only) for a $75 nonrefundable fee. Rates can range from $130-200. Parking is free.

The rooms have more square footage than many other hotel rooms and also have a partially separated living area relative to the sleeping area. The couch is a wraparound style and the sink is separated from the toilet and shower. All the rooms include a mini fridge. Hotel amenities include an outdoor heated pool, small workout room, and a guest computer. Hyatt offers 24 hour food options but not room service. The hotel also has a full bar as well. Breakfast is a mix of hot and continental items and is complimentary. A shopping center next to the hotel had three restaurants: The Original Pancake House, Einstein Bagels and J. Alexander’s (steakhouse and American food). Hyatt provides a courtesy shuttle within a 5 mile radius of the hotel.

It was a late arrival yet again, and there was only one room available. It had a strong mildew odor and somewhat damp conditions. After alerting the front desk clerk and requesting an alternative, she advised on the hotel's sold out situation. It was a take it or leave it deal, and it was too late to leave it. One of the lights beside the bed did not work. The bed also had a traditional bedspread rather than the combined duvet style that can be washed with the sheets, but the bed was comfortable. The AC unit also worked OK. While the room was quiet, a requested wakeup call never arrived. As for the bathroom equipment, the shower did not drain adequately, and under the sink’s rim there was some lovely black crud which peeled off periodically. Breakfast included hot croissants with ham, French toast and fruits. Only the French toast was tried, and it was about average – too much powdered sugar. Given the room experience obviously there won’t be any future stays here. The hotel does get some credit for waiving the fee, but still a strong mildew smell in a hotel room is completely unacceptable.
