Orlando isn't the best place for a business trip, but you do what you have to. All things considered, the Hyatt Place is as good a choice as you're going to make.
Constructed straight out of the standard Hyatt Place blueprint, if you've been to one before you know what you're getting: A living area with a couch, mini-fridge, desk and huge TV; one or two beds; and a tiny bathroom with the sink outside. You either like the setup or you don't. I do.
Had a room looking out toward Universal. Even got to see the fireworks one night. Despite facing busy Kirkman Road it was very quiet. Bed was comfy; pillows were mush.
Typical free Hyatt Place breakfast, which is basically a slight step up from most places. I only went one day, and had breakfast at my conference hotel the other days, so as not to contend with the little kids (for whom, let's face it, Orlando exists).
Free Wi-Fi was fine. Saw a room with a PC and printer, but didn't use.
No guest laundry (very odd for a place like Orlando), but when I called the desk to ask I was told to walk over to the Holiday Inn next door. Sure enough, the desk clerk there gave me a key to their guest laundry, which also has a detergent machine and a dollar bill changer.
Had to go to Universal for business, but the Hyatt Place only runs two shuttles in the AM and three in the PM, none of which ever fit my schedule. I walked up to the corner and on Major Blvd. is Lynx bus 21, which runs every 30 minutes, costs $2 and gets you to the Universal entrance in 3 minutes. At the Universal bus stop there is also a cab stand.
Overall, a good place. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return.
