I posted last week on how to reach the Hyatt Mainz, having myself got terribly lost, despite having a map.
The hotel itself is the last in Germany that I have not previously visited. It’s pretty nice, but the Regency Club is pretty small. So onward with the review. The hotel is very modern but integrates an old, riverside fort, very well. It is both inside and outside the property. The property is right on the river, and it was possible to walk in to town with lovely views of the river along the way.
The agent was friendly and efficient; noted my Hyatt Diamond Status and confirmed that I had been upgraded to a Regency Club, River View Room. I had booked the most basic room.
I was located on the top floor and as I walked down the corridor I noticed that there was a wide range of photography displayed. I hoped that the agent had not matched me with what they considered an appropriate image when I got to my room:
The room itself was large, with a very large bathroom featuring a full size tub as well as a wet area with a door to close for a shower. The TV was not flat-screen which I found odd, and there was a good view of the river from the window.
The bed was comfortable and there was tea and coffee, and a kettle in the room. The desk was well located to work and look out out of the window.
The WiFi was free for Diamonds and there was a special tab on the login page for Gold Passport members to log in.
The room was quiet and I slept well.
The Diamond Amenity was half-a-dozen Werther’s Original sweets – not really worth the 1000 points I would have received if it has been a hotel in the US.
The room was small and there were waits for tables at time. Several of the tables were for singles, which probably works fine for weekdays when there is more of a business clientele, but at weekends it can cause issues for couples and families.
There was free wine in the evening and a selection of cold cuts, breads, juices, cereal etc for the morning spread.
A nice hotel, in a good location and somewhere I would like to come back and stay for longer in the future.
