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.
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.
Have you stayed at the Hyatt Regency Long Island before? What were your thoughts on the hotel?
