A Room with a View at the Hyatt Regency Austin

Empty Nesters, there is a lot to do in Texas! How about Austin? What do we really want to know about the Hyatt Regency Austin? The important stuff, right? Like the incredible location and views! Our recent stay was fabulous, and we enjoyed the view so much we didn’t even close the drapes at night…Austin looks mighty pretty as it twinkles in the dark!

Sparkly view at night

One of the best perks was the online check-in. Check-in, and they email you when your room is ready. Don’t want to wait at the front desk? You don’t have to. Just pick up your keys at the kiosk. Love it!

Sweet and easy check-in with no waiting in line.

The hotel feels big and airy as it has an atrium in the lobby of the hotel which goes all the way up. Very pretty!

The service is top notch. Any time I had a question or a request, boom! There it is. The staff is super friendly and helpful. A delight after staying in hotels where you are just a number.

There are so many activities right outside the door! The boat, kayak, and paddle boards are just a few steps away.

Activities for Lady Bird Lake are right on the Hyatt’s doorstep. If you want to rent a paddleboard or kayak, there’s no better place to be.

The Hyatt hosts weddings and other events all the time…it is a fantastic venue for any occasion. Who wouldn’t want this backdrop for a special event!?

The Pure Luck Salad at Southwest Bistro. YUM.

They serve a wonderful brunch at the Southwest Bistro, and their Pure Luck salad is delicious! The Bistro has views of the water and the cityscape. Soooo relaxing!

The comfy bed was situated so we could look at our view sitting up or lying down.


Bat Fest. 1 1/2 million long tail Mexican bats live under the bridge! Yes….a great view of it! Next time I’m going out on a paddleboard to see them.

What makes a hotel stay great? An inviting lobby area, friendly reception, and comfortable room are givens. These you expect, and the Hyatt Austin delivers these elements perfectly. In addition, they provide a great location, for in Austin, staying on Lady Bird Lake is the ultimate experience. Add an incredible view, friendly staff, good food, and Texas hospitality, and you have the Hyatt Austin. On your next trip to Austin, be sure to stay at the Hyatt, I guarantee you will be glad you did! And tell them Travels with Tam sent you!

  2. Hi Tam! Looks like you had a gorgeous room. When we were in Austin we stayed at a VRBO apartment. What it lacked in glamor and view it made up for amenities. Still, it’s nice to have all the features of a full service hotel–and I like the idea of the online checkin! Thanks for sharing. ~Kathy

  5. Have always wanted to go to Austin. My daughter is thinking about a short Honeymoon trip there and the Hyatt looks like a good place to start!

  6. You’ve reminded me that I haven’t been to Austin in such a long time. It is such a pretty city…Green, lovely.

  7. Love Austin! Love the Hyatt! Have you ever ventured over to that little park across the street where a little house sits? Almost looks out-of-place. Well, it’s a museum about a very tenacious woman who lived in Austin. What a story!!!

  8. My youngest daughter loves Austin and has talked many times about possibly moving there (she has several long-time friends who moved there). If she does, THIS is where I’ll stay. It looks and sounds fabulous. Thanks for info!

  9. I love Austin and always enjoy staying at a Hyatt so I will definitely give this one a try the next time I am in Austin. The bats sound fascinating and horrifying. I think I will wait for your review of looking up at them. Yikes.
