HYATT REGENCY ORLANDO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
This hotel is located right inside the main terminal at MCO (Orlando airport). Security checkpoint is right there and no need for traveling to another location to stay.
445 newly renovated rooms and suites with plush beds, 65" flat screen TV that you can control with your phone and views of the airport runway.
There is a restaurant on site, fitness center, laundry, room service, pool on the rooftop and they are pet friendly.
Would I recommend this place? Yes, absolutely!
The hotel itself was very nice and the newly remodeled rooms were amazing. The layout of the rooms and the size made it more than comfortable and easy to move around. The tv can be controlled by your phone and there was a touch air/heat control. The bathroom we had was AMAZING! Very big and it had 2 showers: one that was a shower and the other a shower/tub combo. There was a lot of counter space in the bathroom as well and the mirror had the time built into it. There's a desk if you need space for a laptop and a fridge to keep items cold in. They did have 2 complimentary bottles of water in the room. The bed was very comfortable.
The pool up on the open rooftop (not the top of the hotel, but "a" rooftop) was really nice with plenty of seating space and a great view of the planes coming in and out on the runway. The pool is lit up at night and made for a nice night swim. The pool has 3 water spouts coming out of a wall and into the pool. There was a small pool (for small children) that also had a few water spouts out of a wall. They did provide you with pool towels and also pool noodles if needed.
They did have a gym to workout in, right close to the pool area.
The interior of the hotel is all open and there are a lot of planted trees and flowers and even a pond with a small waterfall down the rocks.
You could order food to be brought to you up at the pool with several of tables to eat at. There is a smoking section out there: otherwise you have to go outside the airport terminal.
Check in and out was simple and quick and the staff friendly and helpful with answers to questions.
The food at the restaurant was very expensive (which I expected). We had burgers, quesadilla, and wings (without the sauce), which were really good. My oldest daughter had the wings (with the sauce) and said it was just too hot to eat. Her fiance had the chicken Alfredo and said it was probably the worse he's ever had. They all did not like their meals but didn't have a choice because nothing else was open within the airport.
The price was too good to be true. I believe we were able to get a good price due to the COVID epidemic and they were probably forced to drop their prices to be able to make any money. There's not many people traveling at this time and I can't imagine a hotel like this being this cheap all the time. If it is, then I'll be staying here from now on when flying in to Orlando.
This hotel is HUGE. It was a lot bigger than I could imagine and we ended up with a room that was very far away. It was a lot of walking to get to it and I am mobility challenged at the moment after an accident. I had no idea I would have to try to walk so far to get to the room and then walk back to get to the elevators or pool area. If you are mobility challenged, please make sure you request a room near the elevators.
You did have to use your room key in order to take the elevator to the pool floor.
There is a phone outside that you can call the restaurant for food service, it didn't work and finding a number to the actual hotel (and not reservations) provided a bit of a challenge in order to place an order to the poolside.
