Rooms & Ameneties
The rooms are the standard Hyatt Place rooms with 1 king or 2 full-size beds as well as an L-shaped couch that has a sleeper sofa so rooms can accommodate up to 6 people.
The rooms are very spacious, especially for beach area accommodations. We had enough room to fit our inflatable paddleboard so we didn’t have to deflate it until the end of the trip. We were located on the first floor facing the road and did hear some street noise at night. Although, I didn’t hear it thanks to my bose earplugs and my husband and kids weren’t phased by it.
Mini-Fridge in Room
The room has a fridge so you can store some cold items to save on drinks and even lunches during your stay.
Breakfast is included with each night and is the standard Hyatt Place Breakfast although it was one of the better ones we have had during covid. They offered corn beef hash scrambled eggs and bacon. along with muffins, bagels fruit, and yogurt.
Garage Parking Included
Parking is Complementary at the Hyatt Place Hotel. The parking garage is shared with the attached condos so parking is limited to 1 car per hotel room.
This is the first Hyatt Place we have stayed at that offered an activities schedule. It was definitely a nice add on considering the price you pay (mostly due to its awesome location). The kids were able to pick up smores kits to enjoy at the bayside beach bonfire. There’s also a movie night one night a week on the beach.
The Best entertainment is the access to the Ocean and Bayside beaches. There’s also a kayak rental right next to the bayside beach or you can bring your own kayaks and paddleboards to use in the calm waters. We loved using our inflatable kayak and inflatable paddleboard on the bay.
For Independence Day, Fireworks are hosted over the bay with views from the Hyatt Place Dewey Beach Bay Front beach area. There are tons of boats that anchor in the bay to party all day but move out right before the fireworks with a few remaining for the show.
The Hyatt Place Hotel has an indoor pool which is great for rainy days or during check-out days if you don’t want to get sandy or saltwater. There’s also a shower in the pool area if you do want to rinse off from the ocean. There’s also an outdoor shower in the parking garage. These small amaneties can make a huge difference in comfort on your drive home.
The Bayside beach by the Hyatt Place Dewey beach offers calm warm waters to play in. There’s a public access beach on the side of the hotel that offers kayak rentals. We were able to launch ours off the main beach. The Beach also has a lifeguard on duty during mid-day. The water was calm and shallow enough that younger kids could play in the water while parents watched them from the shore. It was a very relaxing place.
It also provides nice views of the fireworks on Independence Day that are shot off over the bay. We were able to paddle out on a SUP and kayak and watch the fireworks from the water. This was a fun and unique experience for us.
What’s great about this hotel is you have access to both bayside and ocean-side beaches. Just one short block away is the public beach access with a lifeguard stand. The ocean has waves for boogie boarding and nice sand great for building sandcastles.
There are several restaurants near the hotel. This is especially convenient during busy times when the local trolley is behind schedule and Uber is dropping pick-ups because traffic is so congested.
You can easily walk to the Rusty Rudder next door which offers delicious lobster rolls and live music. The Place was definitely jamming on independence day with their live music and bay view. Across the street is Nalu Dewey Beach as well as a handful of restaurants within a few blocks away.
