Best Experience Ever
The Hyatt when up and beyond what was expected for my daughters wedding. The service, quality of Food, and the planner on site Caitlin Schmedeke is by far the best in the industry. They paid attention to every detail and made the evening spectacular. Highly recommend.Sent on 09/07/2020
Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay's reply:Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Zoe! It was a pleasure working with you and your family. Wishing you all the best for your future and we hope you stay safe and healthy!

Having our daughter's wedding at the Hyatt was a wonderful experience. The venue is gorgeous and their staff is first class. We worked with the Event Sales Manager, Caitlin Schmedeke. She coordinated all the details and her services went far beyond our expectations.Sent on 01/18/2021

Outstanding service and accommodations on every level from guest rooms to special requests to an unbelievable cocktail hour and dinner receptions. The Hyatt and their staff, particularly Caitlin Schmedeke, were attentive to our every need and anticipated some as well. The food was incredible! The evening, perfect!Sent on 11/16/2019

Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay was the first venue my husband and I went to see. They set the bar pretty high because every venue we saw after that we kept comparing to the Hyatt. They were able to accommodate our large guest count, there was free parking for guests and shuttles to the airport. Caitlin was our point of contact and she was such a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. From the time we checked in the night before the wedding to the time we checked out, we were taken care of! The bridal suite was amazing and had plenty of space for getting ready the day of!Sent on 03/05/2020
The food was an important factor for us as we had been to a few weddings where the food just wasn't good. We knew we didn't want our guests to experience that. When we had our tasting we were so relieved because the food was just so good! The chefs came out during the tasting to speak to us and explain the dishes. It has been a little over a month since our wedding and we still have guests telling us how great the food was!
We can't thank Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, Caitlin, and her team enough for making our wedding weekend so special!!
Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay's reply:Militza thank you so much for such a wonderful review! We were honored to be part of yours and Zubin's special weekend!!! We are so glad you enjoyed your wedding suite, and the food as it is such an important part to the day as well! Can't wait to see you back at the hotel soon and we wish you all the best in your future together!!!!

Elegant wedding venue
We were so glad we chose Armani's at the Grand Hyatt as the venue for our wedding ceremony and reception. We received so many compliments from our guests re. the quality of the food and service and the venue itself with its spectacular sunset view of the bay. The service far exceeded our expectations. The individual attention from all the staff made everyone feel so special. The event sales manager, Caitlin, was so helpful and made so many suggestions to make our wedding special. She and her staff made sure the wedding went smoothly and without a hitch. So many guests said it was one of the most elegant weddings they had ever attended.Sent on 11/26/2019
Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay's reply:Thank you so much for this amazing review! It was such a special night and we are so grateful we were there to see everything we've worked so hard on come to life!!

The Grand Hyatt wishes you nothing but happiness for your future together!!

Every little girl wants their wedding day to be perfect... at the Grand Hyatt it truly was!! From beginning to start it was a breeze- working with Caitlin seriously couldn’t have been a bigger blessing. I would give them a 12 out of 10 stars if I could! Our wedding day was perfect and I wouldn’t have changed a thing.Sent on 12/12/2019

Top Notch Event Manager
I cannot say enough about Caitlin at the Grand Hyatt. We just had our daughter’s wedding there and it is a wonderful venue from the beauty of it to the culinary team but Caitlin made our experience the best. She was on top of it all. She is the most professional, conscientious, kind, helpful person that there is. What a great communicator! We always knew what was going on and questions were quickly answered. And we had a lot of them! I hope the Grand Hyatt knows what an asset she is for them! Absolutely outstanding!Sent on 02/17/2019

Perfect beachy wedding venue
The Grand Hyatt is the perfect venue if you are looking for a casual beach wedding venue. Caitlin and team helped make our day perfect from the start of our wedding planning. Caitlin is very well organized and detail oriented, she is a great asset to the Grand Hyatt team. Thank you all for all that you did to make our special day a success! I highly recommend this venue!!Sent on 02/26/2019

Excellent 'getting ready' space!
I booked a suite at Grand Hyatt in order to have enough 'getting ready' space for me and my girls. The Presidential Suite was gorgeous --- super-spacious with bay views! It even came with a free bottle of champagne. Customer service was GREAT --- would highly recommend!Sent on 12/23/2018

From barefoot on Oystercatcher's beach to heels at Armain's
Caitlin, Arielle and the catering event staff were wonderful to work with to help create a wonderful wedding day not just for us, but for all who attended. They took great care of any special requests we had and made us all feel so special. From our ceremony on Oystercatcher's private beach area to our reception up at Armani's, the day was filled with wonderful memories that the amazing staff at the GHTB helped create! I highly recommend it!Sent on 01/22/2019
A big thank you to all that helped make our wedding day amazing!
Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay's reply:Christine thank you so much for such a wonderful review!! It was a pleasure to work with you on your special day. You and Matt are a wonderful pair and I hope you stay in touch with the Hyatt family!!

The Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay was the perfect place for our intimate wedding ceremony. We were treated so well and everything was perfect. The grounds are amazing for the best photo opps and the staff did everything they could to make the day an unforgettable memory. The Gazebo was the best location for a small ceremony overlooking the bay. Cailtin was amazing and helped us every step of the way! We highly recommend having your special event here and cant wait to come back!Sent on 07/09/2018
Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay's reply:Thank you so much for these wonderful praises! We were so lucky to be a part of your special day!

I had my wedding, both ceremony and reception, at the Grand Hyatt. I cannot even begin to describe how happy I was with everything. Food, service, responsiveness, amazing customer service, and how welcomed everyone made us and our guests feel for our wedding. The wedding planner that the Hyatt has is top notch. They don't come better then her! She was so helpful and helped give us our dream wedding. Highly highly recommend them and we can't wait to go back and vacation!Sent on 07/04/2017

We can not say enough good things about Amy Otte and the entire staff that helped make our wedding day special. Our venue was perfect, the wait staff during dinner was excellent and very attentive. Communication between all the staff was what kept things together and on track. Amy was the absolute best! She is an excellent communicator and is always there to answer any questions or just help us when we need it. Everything was flawless. All of our guest could not stop talking about the food, the venue, the service, and how beautiful everything was. Planning a wedding can be stressful, but trust me when I tell you there was nothing for us to worry about with Amy! Thank you Grand Hyatt for an amazing experience and night to remember for my wife and I.Sent on 03/15/2017

My wedding was back in March so this review is a bit late - however I had to post a review to really show my appreciation to the entire team at the Grand Hyatt but in particular Kristi! Our wedding was a destination wedding so I planned it entirely out of the country - without a wedding planner! How did I do that - because I chose THE best venue in Tampa with such a excellent level of service - I literally had no stress at all due to the constant communication from Kristi to ensure all the details were set. The on day coordination is priceless - all the various vendors not connected to the hotel were managed perfectly and everything was delivered as expected! The food was excellent, the service top class - the actual hotel is modern and in a lovely bay side setting. My suite was so spacious getting ready was such a breeze - and the complimentary breakfast pastries and fruit for all my bridal party was such a nice touch. I loved everything about the day - can't stop smiling when I think about it. Kristi is a star! Chose the Grand Hyatt - you'll never regret it!Sent on 10/02/2016

We had our wedding reception at Armani's on the 14th floor of the Grand Hyatt. The views where breathtaking. The venue is perfect for a nice intimate wedding celebration. We worked with Kristi and she made sure everything was perfect. I was so pleased with how beautiful the room was set up. Unfortunately we had to move the ceremony inside due to rain at the last minute but even with the change our wedding day was perfect. Service was exceptional, and the food was great! All of our guest complimented how delicious the food was. We are so happy that we choose to have our wedding at the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay.Sent on 11/29/2015

My groom and I stayed at the Hyatt on our wedding night, and it was absolutely PERFECT! Katie took excellent care of us! The villa we stayed in was absolutely beautiful, immaculately cleaned, didn't have that humid musty feel/smell, like so many hotels do! Plus they upgraded us when we went to check in, and we were surprised to receive champagne, choc covered strawberries, the villa to be all dimly lit, complete with rose petals leading up to the bedroom! It was absolutely breathtaking and so romantic! We felt so special! Thank you, Hyatt, for making the end to our wedding day absolutely perfect, relaxing, and romantic! If they have such care for detail on a hotel room, I would love to see their attention for detail for a reception or other event! I'm sure it's perfect! :)Sent on 12/05/2014
