We decided to reprise last year's stay at the Hyatt Chesapeake - arrived the day before Christmas Eve and left on Christmas Day. Was pleasantly surprised to get a room that had been refurbished. New carpets and wood floors at the entrance to the room were very nice. As always the food at Water's Edge Grill was good. This year we went to the Blue Point Provision Company at the marina which also had pretty good food. Service was spotty - they got our drink order wrong once and charged us for it. But it all evened out since they forgot to charge us for one kid's breakfast.
Was surprised to find more people arriving on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I guess folks aren't as traditional as I thought they would be. Even though it was busier than the last time we were here it wasn't as bad as it could have been when were here years ago during Spring Break and the summer.
