Such an incredible wedding!
We got married at the Hyatt this fall (2018), and it was the best experience ever. We had a destination wedding and did all the planning from Atlanta (which made me nervous), but the experience was flawless despite only one site visit (all else handled by phone, email, and face time). Vanessa (our Hyatt planner) and Alex were amazing. We got great room discounts for our guests. I loved the guest room booking app, which I could monitor throughout. The food was superb for both the rehearsal and reception. The location was unbeatable and made everyone feel like they were on a tropical vacation— amazing pools! The food was top notch— both wedding events and the restaurants there. And even setting wedding events aside, there is so much live entertainment there with nightly music, Indian dances, etc. I’d been to the Hyatt for a work retreat and was so impressed, I chose it for our wedding. I was not disappointed. They exceeded our expectations in every way. We even returned to our room to a sweet card and small gift, which was so above and beyond. I’d highly recommend the Hyatt for any event. Simply gorgoeus, amazing team, and the execution was flawless.

Everything about the resort was fabulous. We had our ceremony, reception, and block of rooms there. Every single staff member that we encountered was extremely friendly and professional. They made the planning process seamless, and were available for any last minute changes. We started the planning process with Colleen Davidson, and when she was out for maternity leave, David Winter took over. He was fully aware of everything already planned and discussed with Colleen, it was like he had been a part of the planning process from the start. He was a huge support on the day of the wedding, making sure that everything went off without a hitch. When our mom’s mentioned they were going to do a little setup for our guestbook table prior to the reception, he immediately told them not to worry about it, that he and his team would take care of it. The ceremony site, Palm Grove, was beautiful, and as part of our contract, we had the meeting room just behind it to get ready in. It worked out perfectly. The set up in the ballroom was perfect. The banquet team, especially the banquet captain Jerry, were all wonderful. The treated us as if they had known us for years. We had 1 or 2 minor hiccups, and they were handled with ease.
The food at the reception was phenomenal. We chose to do a double protein with a filet and salmon. The kitchen was able to work with our special requests- I don’t like seafood, so they were able to do a double filet for me. We had 1 guest that is a vegan, and he said his meal was great. The steak was so tender, you could cut it with a fork. Chef Eric Howson and his team really know what they are doing!
Abbie Dalton helped us with the rooms, and she was always willing to answer any questions we had or help with any last minute changes. The Front Desk team at the hotel was awesome and made sure our guests had a great experience.
We would telling anyone getting married in Scottsdale, AZ that they need to go to the Hyatt Gainey Ranch!

My husband and I held a gathering to celebrate our recent marriage with our friends and family on Saturday the 18th of October. We rented out a small area called the Hearth room at Center Stage Bar in the lobby of the hotel and could not had been more happy and satisfied with the whole experience! Devraj, the bar manager, was over accommodating and just amazing at making the event come together. We can't thank him enough! The entire staff went above and beyond!! They catered to meet every need and they were so friendly as well. Abigail Dalton was also amazing at booking us a discounted rate for our group staying at the hotel and was very kind and lovely to work with. From the valet that remembered our last name to the welcome drinks upon arrival, the Hyatt Regency made our night one that we will never forget and we will always plan to return to celebrate our anniversaries!!
Absolutely beautiful venue for your wedding! Wonderful staff to make your wedding perfectly delightful! Highly recommend!
