Hyatt Place Universal Studios Orlando Reviews
Great Proximity to Universal Studios! Jul 14, 2011
On my recent trip to Universal Studios/Islands of Adventure and Disney World in Orlando, Florida we stayed at a Hyatt Place. It is not a full service hotel, but a more basic place to stay for business travellers without spa services and other amenities. However since we planned to only sleep at the hotel and our days were going to be spent at the theme parks, we thought these were unnecessary.
We managed to get employee family rate rooms for $59 per night which was amazing value. However I believe the average rate for this period is around $89 per night. The rooms were very spacious with two double beds and a large sofa bed. There is also free wifi and a complimentary continental breakfast. I recommend getting up early for the breakfast because by 8am it is extremely crowded.
The room was very clean and comfortable. Service was also very friendly. There is a free shuttle service to Universal Studios at two times in the morning and with two return shuttles as well which were very convenient. The shuttle to Disney World needs to be booked and costs $14 per person return. It takes about an hour because the bus stops at different hotels along the way to pick people up but we were told a taxi would cost about $60 one way at night so we decided against that.
The hotel is about a 10-15 minute walk from Universal studios (depending how exhausted you are) so if you miss the shuttle it is possible to walk. A small fitness centre with 2 treadmills, an eliptical and a recumbent bicycle are located downstairs. The equipment is quite new and there was not anyone there anytime I went. In addition there is an average sized pool outside.
It is not a full service hotel so you can't expect it to be, but for the price we paid and the location to the theme parks it was a great choice. I would stay there again if I were to visit the theme parks.
