Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay Hotel Review: With 22,000 square-feet of meeting space, this hotel is one of the most popular sites in the area for fly-in conferences and business get-togethers. The views here are extremely scenic, especially from the top floor boardroom. A $10-million facelift completed January 2003 included a name change---it was formerly the Hyatt Regency Westshore. Proximity to Tampa Bay makes for a leisurely stay, as well. Dont let all the suits and attaché cases put you off. Social events are often held in the 10,000-plus-square-foot ballroom. The 445 guest rooms and 23 suites have new granite bathroom interiors, as well as new wall and bed coverings. Outside, the grounds offer 35 acres of waterfront acreage with well-manicured lawns and natural mangroves. Its a great place for nature strolls.
