Grand Hyatt San Antonio

Grand Hyatt 2

During a recent business trip I had the pleasure of staying at the Grand Hyatt in San Antonio.  While there are many options of hotels on the river in San Antonio, the Grand Hyatt was an excellent choice.  Located right on the river this was one of the best Hyatt hotels I have visited.

The hotel itself is enormous.  From most places in the general vicinity, the Grand Hyatt, literally stands out above other hotels.  Located directly on the San Antonio Riverwalk and practically inside of the convention center the Grand Hyatt is the perfect location for small and large events alike.  Hotel staff were friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating.  They were helpful, always smiling and ready to assist as needed.

Not only is the hotel enormous, the décor is spectacular.  From the glass chandeliers in the lobby to the wonderful paintings found throughout the hotel, the Grand Hyatt does not disappoint.  In the meeting room there are ample outlets and also the ability to pipe in music through the speakers located in each of the meeting rooms.  The hotel was well equipped to handle all size groups, large and small without making the guest feel crowded or too isolated.

If you need your morning coffee, there was the 24 hour coffee bar that served Starbucks products, so they had you covered.  The coffee shop also had a variety of food items to accommodate, breakfast, lunch, or the occasional snack.  If heavy breakfast is not your thing, the hotel provided fresh water, juice and donut holes during the day.  However with Ruth Chris located on the lower level and Bar Rojo on the main level dining options were not a problem.

Overall, my stay at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio was great.  Our group too an early morning walk along the river and around the immediate area of the hotel.  There was beautiful scenery as well as an unobstructed path for us to walk.  The area along the river was simply beautiful with the lush greenery and calm water.  I will be returning to San Antonio again soon for another business trip and I hope that the Grand Hyatt will again be the choice.  I would love to stay there again.

 

Be Blessed, Be Fabulous!

Hilton Bonnet Creek

I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, while attending BlogHer17.  And I must say that it was a pleasure!  I had a wonderful room that not only overlooked the pool, but I could see Disney World and the nightly Disney fireworks display.  As a person who LOVES fireworks, this was definitely a bonus for me.  From the lazy rive and water slide in the pool area, to the pool bar and restaurant with excellent food, my stay at the Hilton Bonnet Creek was amazing.

From check-in to check-out the Hilton Bonnet Creek provided a great time during the weekend.  One of things that rated Hilton Bonnet Creek higher for me was the exceptional customer service.  Upon arrival, I was early, my room was not ready, I was allowed to leave my bags with the Bellmen while I went to the adjacent Waldorf Astoria Spa for a pedicure and a little bit of relaxation in their Tea Room.  While walking back to the Hilton, I managed to cut my foot and upon the realization, the staff provided me with band-aids and asked repeatedly, if I was ok or needed anything additional.  They even had security to bring be triple antibiotic ointment.

The first day there was a long travel day and I was able to go out to the poolside bar Beech, where I had an awesome salad as well as a Hibiscus Margarita, which was AMAZING!  While I would have loved to have spent some time on the hotel’s lazy river, I never got a chance to experience that Beech was not my only option,  The Myth Bar was a lifesaver open 24 hours it offered not only a great selection of cocktails, the food was pretty good as well.  Zeta, the Asian themed restaurant offered a daily happy hour with $5.00 sushi and discounted wine.  I guess there is no wonder I can home with a few extra pounds to work off.

Not only was the Hilton Bonnet Creek a great spot for the BlogHer17 Conference, It was a great spot for families as well.  Many of the conference attendees came with their families and the hotel provided plenty for the families to engage in while we attended the conference.  There was even an on-site game room as well as scheduled shuttles to all of the Disney attractions.  How convenient.  I definitely plan to return to the Orlando area and stay at the Hilton Bonnet Creek again.
