Hotel Review: Hyatt Regency Lake Washington at Seattle’s Southport

Our site may contain affiliate links. Read Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

The Hyatt Regency Lake Washington at Seattle’s Southport is one of Hyatt’s newer hotels in the Seattle area which opened earlier this summer. It’s located in Renton, Washington a short 20 minute drive from Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

This property has 347 guest rooms and is a World of Hyatt Category 3 property, meaning free night awards start at 12,000 points per night, whereas Points + Cash is available for 6,000 points and $75 per night. I decided to choose the latter on this stay as rates were over $200 during the weekend, so I thought this was a decent value.

Upon our arrival late in the evening, we were welcomed by the friendly front desk agent who informed as a Globalist member I was upgraded to a Lake View Room.

The guest room featured two queen sized beds, a chaise lounge, a work desk and a huge 65 inch flat screen television as well as direct views of Lake Washington.

The lounge offers breakfast during the week until 9:30am and on weekends until 10am. There are also evening appetizers as well as an honor bar in the evening.

Bottom Line

Overall I was very pleased with the Hyatt Regency Lake Washington. The property is brand new and the service was great while I was there. For those looking to visit Seattle, this hotel is 20 minutes from downtown so if you’re looking to spend a lot of time there, then you may want to consider renting a car.

As a World of Hyatt Globalist member, I was proactively upgraded at check-in to a Deluxe Lake View room as well as informed of the Regency Club lounge.

If headed to/from the SEA airport, you can easily get a Uber from here and it will run about $25.

If you’re looking for a lake vacation, know that when it comes to swimming and pools, the hotel doesn’t have an outdoor swimming pool by the lake rather just the indoor pool. Also, there wasn’t any sort of beach area to sit by the lake which I would have liked to have seen.

  1. Thanks for the review! Property and rooms look more like the Andaz brand than the Regency brand. Were you able to see the evening spread at the club lounge? Cant wait to visit sometime this fall!
