Hotel Review: Hyatt Regency Long Island

This weekend I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Long Island hotel which is located in Hauppauge, NY about 55 miles outside of NYC.

The property is only a Category 2 property meaning free nights start at 8,000 points or for $55 plus 4,000 points.

I decided to book the Points + Cash rate, since I would earn stay/night credit toward my Hyatt Diamond status as well as for the ability to use a Hyatt Diamond Suite upgrade. When I booked the reservation, I was instantly confirmed into a One Bedroom Suite.

The suite was a true one bedroom suite with a separate living room and bedroom.

The hotel featured their Stay Fit gym with a decent selection of equipment.

There is a small indoor swimming pool, as well as an outdoor pool open for the summer.

The Hyatt Regency Long Island offers complimentary shuttle service to/from both Long Island MacArthur Airport as well as the Ronkonkoma train station. I just took the train out there from Manhattan and it took about an hour and fifteen minutes.

Bottom Line

As a Category 2 property, I think this hotel is a great deal for cash and points at $55 plus 4,000 points per night. If you’re short a few nights/stays for Hyatt Diamond status and live in the NYC area, consider heading out to long island for a night for mattress run.

The hotel offered good Diamond recognition including a full breakfast buffet or order off the menu breakfast in the hotel’s restaurant. The only downside is there is no Regency Club at this property, but other than that it’s a solid property.

  1. Thanks for the review: I’m going to be in Long Island for a night and I’m torn between this and the Marriott Islandia

  2. As a Hyatt Diamond, and a Marriott Gold, I actually prefer the Marriott Islandia, which offers the same rate. The Marriott’s lounge is decent. When I am on business travel, I don’t really have the time, or want to, sit down for a long breakfast.

    One thing puzzles me is they have some strange breakfast bill-back system that appears to reduce my rate by a few bucks.

    For example, if the rate is $100, as a diamond, one should 500 points, plus 30% bonus, plus the 1000 welcome points. When I looked at my earnings, they would always be 2~3% short. I know it has something do with the free breakfast. I never made a fuss though.

    Also, I remember I once did a paper survey, with the promise of 2000 points. Well, that was more than one month ago.

    Otherwise, it’s a decent property, but the weekday buffet may not get replenished much after 9am.

  3. Stayed here for a few night C&P for my diamond trial. Hotel has been updated recently and is in much better shape now. Breakfast was good thought front desk went out of there way to make my stay best it could be. I took points and was offered diamond amenity anyway. Another stay was offered double points
