San Diego: Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa & Marina

San Diego Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa & Marina
1441 Quivira Road, San Diego; (619) 224-1234, www.hyatt.com

In the living room of the 553-square-foot suite, a beige six-seat sectional couch surrounded a cluster of four navy leather cubes. From the couch, you can watch the 32-inch LCD flat-screen TV or gaze into the mirror suspended from leather straps. Or trade your spot for the plush sea-blue armchair, ottoman and reading lamp.

A pocket door separates the living room from the bedroom, a blaze of ultra-white bed linens, wood-slat window blinds and white-curtained sliding glass doors. The bedroom has a second TV, this a last-century set that anchors a large desk, and a comfy, king-size, pillow-top bed framed by a wicker headboard. Alas, the two-story fitness center blocked our bay-and-marina view.

For families with children, the pool is a big plus at the Hyatt Regency at Mission Bay. Kids will find a new surprise since the renovation: three pool slides, which keep them occupied while the adults swim nearby, relatively undisturbed. A Los Angeles Times hotel reviewer notes a downside of the pool: Guests may find lounge chairs scarce. Boat owners who rent slips at the nearby Hyatt-managed marina seem to like to drop in and monopolize the seating. (Kathy M.Y. Pyon / Los Angeles Times)
