I’ve been meaning to visit the Hyatt Regency in Greenwich, CT for a while. It’s close to New York City, the weekend rates are often quite low and the hotel has a good reputation. Finally, a few weeks ago, we went there – we loved both the hotel and the location.
The hotel is large, with a lush atrium in the center. As much as I do like atriums, I prefer rooms with real windows that look outside. But that is one of my only gripes about this hotel. The hotel is lovely and the staff is very attentive and charming.
We were told that we could have a suite one night, but that we’d have to switch rooms the second night, as the hotel was booked up with weddings. We agreed.
Our room was a standard room which opened into an adjoining large suite room, which contained tables and sofas, an extra bathroom and even a Murphy bed. I’ve included a series of photos.
Nice amenity from hotel:

Our room the second night was very nice. It was an upgraded room, also looking over the atrium.
This is a view of the atrium from the elevator bank on the third floor.
One especially nice feature was that there was a coffee/tea station set up on each floor in the morning.
The hotel does have a Regency Lounge, but it is closed on weekends. So, as a Diamond Gold Passport member, our stay included breakfast at the hotel restaurant. This was one of the best breakfasts we’ve ever had (reviewed in separate post).
We drove to the hotel. It has both valet and self parking. There is a charge for both, but we were told that they weren’t charging for self park over the weekend. I do not know if this is a regular feature, or just that weekend.
If you prefer to take a train, the hotel is only a mile from the Old Greenwich train station and the hotel also has a shuttle bus and will pick you up.
