Steps from City Market, the only southeastern outpost of the Hyatt’s stylish Andaz brand showed up in September 2012, bringing with it a revamped lobby and a local-focused restaurant, 22 Square, which specializes in southern fare. Freebies like Wi-Fi and in-room snacks and mini-bar items are welcometreats, while a popular cocktail hour encourages mingling over small local bites such as candied bacon and cookies. Generously sized bathrooms have walk-in showers and freestanding soaking tubs (in suites). The second-floor terrace houses an outdoor pool and fire pit that overlooks Bay Street.
