The massive 1,641-room Hyatt Regency Orlando encompasses two towers: the 27-story International Tower and the newer 31-story Regency Tower, which was built in 2010. The design is contemporary, from the airy, two-story marble lobby to colorful Pop Art carpeting and sleek, mod furnishings throughout the public spaces.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms and suites are generous in size and done in neutral tones of sage and chocolate-brown. They feature patterned carpeting, iHome docking stations, flat-screen TVs, wooden headboards, oversize windows or balconies and granite finishes. Signature Hyatt Grand Beds come with extra-fluffy pillows and down blankets. Business-minded travelers will appreciate the ample electrical outlets and spacious work desks. The bathrooms are like mini-spas, with in-mirror TVs, luxury toiletries and a shower/tub combination.
The Hyatt Regency Orlando offers a full roster of amenities and activities. You can swim laps in the third-floor Olympic-size pool or join families at the zero-entry, lagoon-style grotto pool (which also has a water slide and cabana service and is open daily until 11 p.m.). Want another way to relax? The 12-room spa features treatments from Eminence, Comfort Zone and Sanitas and also has a full-service beauty salon. If you’re looking to keep up your fitness regimen, there’s an outdoor tennis court and a vast fitness center that offers classes such as spinning and core strength. Come evening, chic Rocks has a gleaming horseshoe bar, live piano music, craft cocktails and small plates served by waitresses in stylish black dresses. Dining outlets include the B-Line Diner (open 24/7), Fiorenzo Italian Steakhouse and poolside sandwiches and salads until sunset at Coconuts Grill. For finer dining make a reservation at Napa, which pairs top California wines with fresh farm-to-table cuisine (think heirloom vegetables, Florida grouper and a juicy organic chicken breast stuffed with linguica sausage, golden raisins and pistachios).
In the Area
Orlando’s world-renowned attractions are all nearby. It’s just two miles to Shamu at SeaWorld, three miles to Universal Orlando Resort and 11 miles to Walt Disney World. There is a rental car company on site and their concierge service can arrange for transportation and tickets. The resort’s prime spot on International Drive gives you easy access to non-park attractions such as Wonder Works, Ripley’s Believe It or Not and the African-themed Congo River mini-golf, as well as the new Orlando Eye Ferris wheel, which makes its debut in spring 2015. It’s all connected by the hop-on/hop-off I-Ride Trolley, which stops right in front of the hotel and runs from 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Head next door to Pointe Orlando for fine dining (Oceanaire and Capitol Grille top our favorite spots), as well as nightlife at the Improv, B.B. King’s Blues Club and the popular dance spot Blue Martini.
How to Get There
Everything was top notch, the room, staff, cleanliness... Would definitely go back!
The only negative, was that they were cleaning / resurfacing their grotto pools. I had hoped to spend some time relaxing there. However, their other pool was open and was a nice spot as well.
Hotel is in a great location close to everything. Hotel is clean , beautiful and the employees are very friendly. I was very impressed and I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for quality . Its a little busy , but worth the stay.
If you're attending a conference at the OCCC, stay at the Hyatt if you can. Very clean and professional, and the location is excellent! A short walk to Pointe Orlando addes more restaurants and entertainment to the menu.
