My hybrid is a Univega. In its day it was one of the better hybrids. However, you can't get a Univega anymore.
I have a Univega hybrid and it rocks. Since the frame is chromoly, I don't need suspension. It's faster and more comfortable than my Bianchi Milano with 26' inch wheels and a hard Alu frame.

If I was looking for a street bike, I would choose steel all the way. A flat bar hybrid limits your hand positions which is why you need a steel frame. I would look at the Bianchi Strada or Jamis Coda.
