Hyatt Regency Wichita Revisited

Exactly six months ago to the day, I reviewed the Hyatt Regency Wichita.  At that time, the lobby was undergoing a major makeover.  That revamp has since been completed, as evidenced in my return one day after Christmas.  In place of an ornate reception reminiscent of a bygone era two decades ago is an airy, contemporary lobby featuring clean lines, fuss-free furniture, and plenty of corners for that tête à tête.

Stay Fit@Hyatt facilities at the Hyatt Regency Wichita include a heated indoor pool and a serviceable fitness room, which while not comprehensive, is sufficient for the purpose of trimming the pounds gained over the Christmas holidays (or business lunches).

The rooms, featuring a classic American decor, are certainly comfortable and inviting.  That being said, bed linens with higher threadcounts in line with those found in international Hyatt properties wsuch as the Grand Hyatt Erawan Bangkok would certainly be welcome.  On the other hand, the Portico Spa toiletries featuring the White Ginger range is a step above the generic amenities used in Grand Hyatt porperties in Asia such as Bangkok and Jakarta, and cannot be faulted.

Despite its strengths, room service could be improved.  The newspaper was not delivered to the room in the morning as promised, and when given the feedback at checkout, there was no apology.
