Date(s) of Stay:

August 22, 1998

Location:

Orlando International Airport

Ease of WDW Park Access:

It is an easy trip to WDW although I wouldn't stay my entire vacation at this hotel. It is approximately 30 minutes drive by car from the south exit of the airport. It is called the Greenway and is the most direct route to WDW. There are two toll booths costing one dollar each. I've never encountered much traffic as I've used this route many times.  You exit at the LBV exit.

9300 Airport Blvd, Orlando, Fl 32827

Facility Type:

Hotel

Accommodation Used:

Gold Passport Room

Accommodations Review:

It was a standard size room, with a king size bed. There was a large desk with extra phone jacks for your laptop. There were two telephones, desk and bedside. The room was spotlessly clean and neat.  There was also a filled candy dish by the bed, which I thought was very nice. There was a remote TV with a large selection of pay-per-view movies. The bathroom was well laid out and well equipped.

Soaps, shampoo, plenty of soft towels, and even a coffee maker with a coffee supply of both regular and decaf was included. Tea bags were also supplied.

A telephone was also by the toilet. I had asked for a view of the airport runway and was not disappointed! For those of you thinking the room would be noisy, think again! This was the quietest room I ever had, no noise from the outside and no noise from the halls or the other rooms.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

A special price from their website $99 for the night.

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

Unreported

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

I did not use or seek out the restaurants or lounges, although several are available at the hotel. You also have the airport restaurants available.

Activities/Facilities Available:

There is a small pool with whirlpool that I did not use.  A fitness center is also available. Towels are provided for the pool at the fitness center, next to the pool. The pool area was nicely decorated with live plants and a fountain. It appeared to be well maintained.

Pool Description/Comments:

 

Amenities Provided:

Hairdryer, Coffeemaker, Excellent Bath Amenities, Big-Soft Towels, In-Room Safe, Pool with Whirlpool, Health Club, Room Service, Cable TV with Pay-per-View Movies, Non-Smoking Rooms Available.

Other Comments:

A unique feature that was supposed to be provided, I was very disappointed.  While you check in at the front desk, the bellhops are supposed to get your luggage from the airport. That service was never provided nor offered. I even hinted to the desk clerk when he asked where my luggage was. It was a long trek to the baggage claim area.

For a late arrival or first day of your vacation, the Hyatt MCO is a great way to start your stay in Orlando. I was booked at the Boardwalk Villas for over $200 per night and the $99 first night at the Hyatt saved me money and time.   I would not stay at the Hyatt for my entire stay as on-site is much more convenient. I highly recommend staying at the Hyatt MCO overall.
