Another Reason to Visit the Hyatt Regency SFO
Reason number one is rather obvious: AAA Four Diamond Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport hotel is only seven minutes away from San Francisco International Airport. Reason number two: the property is newly renovated, has a spacious atrium filled with tropical greenery, and goes green and sustainable. Another reason to visit this hotel even if you are not flying anywhere is its Sunday brunch: live jazz, champagne, white tablecloth, and all.
On a Sunday when we brunched there, sitting pretty in the tropical atrium there were birthday parties, large families, small groups of friends, and some couples downing mimosas and Bloody Marys. We happily joined the happening.
To me, the fish and seafood display at any buffet says it all. If the mussels are full-bodied and shiny, if the sushi smells of freshly-cooked rice, if the salmon is luscious and plentiful, and is not alone, but accompanied by some hot-smoked trout, you have my undivided attention.
The Hyatt Regency SFO brunch buffet was all that, and more.
Although I couldn’t possibly try all of the treats, I noticed freshly cut salads; attractive curved meats; fluffy omelets with choice stuffing and prepared by a friendly flamboyant chef; bacon, sausages, and other American breakfast staples as well as steamed dim sum, roasted duck, sautéed beef with shiitake mushrooms and garlic, and other Asian delicacies.
The dessert island spelled my undoing, and I knew it all too well. Therefore, I mostly enjoyed the look of it, but opted for an assortment of fresh melons and a cup of coffee to go with that mellow jazz performed by singer Margie Baker and her excellent band.
