Do you have a favorite hotel lounge? I don’t mean one that’s good, but rather one that takes good and turns it into GREAT. Seems to me, many lounges are fine, or even good, but in each hotel chain there are usually a few standouts. I previously mentioned my 13 criteria for the perfect hotel lounge.
I’ve already talked about my favorite Sheraton lounge, so what’s my favorite Hyatt lounge? There are many Hyatt lounges that I like that are quite good. But the one at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver, B.C. is great! I’ve stayed there many times and it never disappoints. Besides the wonderful downtown location of this hotel, the lounge totally gets it. It has 11 of the 13 criteria! It’s on a high floor and even has an outdoor area with amazing views of the mountains. I’ve only seen a few lounges with outdoor seating and in a beautiful setting like Vancouver, it’s perfect.
The lounge staff is wonderful. Totally helpful without being at all intrusive. Their breakfast spread is excellent, and dinner time is filled with real food and salad. I’ve noticed they change up their menu to match the seasons and weather. This makes so much sense. And evening hours are late enough, so there’s no rush.

Even if the lounge is closed, like it may be during the Christmas holiday, the restaurant where you’d then eat breakfast, is excellent. And when the lounge is closed, the hotel staff will bring you whatever it is you need like water, fruit or snacks. Really good service here! So that’s my pick for my favorite Hyatt lounge. Lots of good ones, but this one raises the bar!
I’m looking forward to hearing about your favorite Hyatt lounge! Have you been to the lounge at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver? Did it rank as high on your list? Which Hyatt lounges rank high for you, and why? Did I miss any of your lounge criteria? Let me know!
