Hyatt Regency recently received the PTPA Seal of Approval and is the first hotel to receive this designation. While I am yet to experience the resort side of the Hyatt Regency brand, I can definitely attest to the family friendly side of things, even at their regular hotels. My family and I visited the entertainment capital of the world, Los Angeles in February and chose to spend a night at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza.
The Hyatt brand is definitely synonymous with luxurious comfort and that’s exactly what we experienced, even with a toddler and newborn along for the stay. The express web check-in, check-out feature is fabulous for young families as we could easily manage the process without having the kids waiting around for the document exchanges. The hotel also has a Starbucks and a car rental area so visiting parents don’t need to rush around the city to get things rolling for the trip!
Our room was plush and comfortably luxurious. There were many little details that really spoke to the family friendly side of the hotel. First of all, the mini bar fridge had a few slots open for me to store my breast milk (though admittedly I wasn’t aware of the sensors and moved some extra bottles around and had to get charges reversed at check-out). Next up cribs are free of charge and come with extra towels and samples of baby shampoo. What a nice touch! Especially for those like I, who forget the toiletries! Know how sometimes the kids go to bed early when you don’t want to? And then you and your partner end up whispering to avoid waking them up? Well even standard rooms have a lanai (porch) which means that as the tots sleep, the parents can relax and bask in the glory of Hollywood, over looking the hotel’s infinity pool.
The infinity pool looked uber relaxing with the private cabanas and I wish we had a chance to take a dip. Given our limited hours in L.A I opted to go shopping at the Westfield Mall right across the hotel whilst the hubby went for a Clippers game at the Staples Centre which was just a twenty minute drive away (including rush hour L.A traffic). The Hyatt Regency Century Plaza has plenty of dining options, from the adults only X-Bar to the kid welcoming Breeze restaurant and Lobby Court and Patio. We enjoyed quite a few drinks in the cozy lounge, sitting under some gorgeous chandeliers. Meanwhile behind us, in true L.A style, there was a fashion shoot taking place. Sadly I’m not fashionable enough to recognize if it was someone famous!
Our stay was relaxing and enjoyable, thanks to the attention to detail at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. If you’re looking for a hotel that’s close by to the Hollywood area and of course the fabulous shopping and dining in Beverly Hills then this spot is for you. Immerse yourself in a posh yet architecturally vibrant environment that’s sure to have you leaving relaxed and pampered by attentive service.
My next beach vacation is most definitely going to be at a Hyatt Regency Resort!
