Winter wasn’t getting any shorter, and it was time for another mini-vacation. The Long Island Hyatt Regency is one of my favorite local go-to places. It’s just far enough away from NYC to feel like you really got away, but it’s really not far at all. Did I mention that it is a category 2 Hyatt property? (hello, points and cash!). That it has a kickass gym and pool? That everyone who works there is fantastic (especially Michael)? And that this hotel has a fabulous breakfast with a great buffet, or, my favorite choice, delicious Lobster Benedict on the menu?
To top it all off, on my most recent visit, we were treated to the Presidential Suite! I surely wasn’t expecting that! And, even though I opted for points as my Diamond benefit, the front desk sent up a bottle of wine and some cheese and crackers anyway! Sheesh, I love this place!
There were two bathrooms (YAY!!):
We may or may not have crashed the Firemens’ cocktail party ( but I did grow up in the same town as the firehouse …)
We always enjoy dinner at the hotel restaurant:
Yes, I made it to the gym in the morning:
Here is a review of the Hyatt Stayfit Gym and Pool. I needed to go to the gym so I could eat my favorite breakfast – the lobster benedict! I LOVE the lobstah!
Drawbacks? The only “drawbacks” to this hotel are that: (1) there really isn’t anyplace outdoors to run (although on a prior stay, I did run around the hotel parking lot and into a nearby gated community), and (2) there is no Regency Lounge. I would burst out in joy if the hotel had either of those additional features.
Go there! On second thought, don’t go there! I want to keep it as my own haven!
