A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of staying at Hyatt Regency Bellevue overnight. Recently opening their expanded wing, I stayed in an Executive Suite in the new tower. I was on one of the top floors and my windows had sweeping views of Bellevue Square, Avalon Towers, and beautiful blue sky in the morning.

My room was spacious, clean, modern, and comfortable. It was a 1-bedroom suite, with an adjacent living room area, bathroom, and closet space. There were 2 LCD TV’s, and the in-room guest amenities were impressive. The luxury bath products, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, face wash, and shower gel, were larger than the average “travel size” you usually expect. There was also mouthwash, toothpaste, and a loofah. I received a personalized note and big bowl of fruit upon arrival into my room, which made me feel very welcome.


The hotel itself has great design, with a simple, modern feel. It’s not overdone, but certainly boasts 4-star luxury. They did a wonderful job making the expansion feel very grand. The thing I love best about Hyatt Regency Bellevue is its location. It’s situated within Bellevue Place and connects via sky bridge to Lincoln Square, which is connected via another sky bridge to Bellevue Square, so it’s very easy to get around rain or shine.

During the stay I went shopping at Bellevue Square, got my hair done at Obadiah Salon & Spa, ate dinner at Z’Tejas, had a drink at STIR Martini + Raw Bar, and ate breakfast at the hotel’s 0/8 Seafood Grill. 0/8’s breakfast was very good, as they have an extensive brunch menu offered on the weekends. There is plenty to do when staying at The Bellevue Collection, and you never even have to get in your car!

I did wish that they had free in-room Wi-Fi; they are a T-Mobile Hotspot. A few added bonuses were the fast elevators, kiosk check-in, and mobile checkout. I will be recommend the Hyatt Regency Bellevue to my future out-of-town guests.
