“Highly recommend (but breakfast is "iffy")”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Convenient accomodations that are well cared for and well attended by the staff. Clean, well designed, and staff are excellent. Very convenient to Universal Orlando and downtown area, and easily linked by I-4 to the Magic Kingdom. Roomy suite and great walk-in shower.

Only concerns were the sometimes strange offerings for breakfast, but no problem if you stick to fruit, oatmeal, pastries, etc. Initally short-stocked on towels, wash clothes, hand towels, but they were quick to provide as needed. Nice pool, hotel computer, and a free shuttle service to Universal that worked out great. For those running out of food, they have prepared offerings (sandwiches, salads, snacks) available at the front desk.

All in all a very comfortable, enjoyable experience and place to stay.

Green Features: clearly making green efforts at this facility. recycling, green laundry practices.

Thanks for taking the time to review our property. I am disappointed to hear you did not enjoy our complimentary hot breakfast skillet with fresh items rotating daily. If there is something in particular you do not like about it, do not hesitate to contact me at Kris.Vos@Hyatt.com, your opinion is important to us. I am happy to hear you enjoyed our newly renovated property and that our staff delighted you. We hope to see you again!

The hotel itself is cosy and nice refurnished , the front desk ppl are very friendly also helpful !
Everything is above the standard only the breakfast time until 09:30 ( weekend only until 10:00 ) is really annoying , after 2 days universal was really exhausted rather sleep longer then enjoy the breakfast at the 3rd day, but when we got down at 09:50 , everything is gone, we have to go to the next door hotel Holiday Inn to ask breakfast and they are cooperated with TGI Fridays breakfast until 11:00

If the breakfast time would have been longer, then this hotel will be really perfect , or if you want to sleep longer and still wish to have breakfast, then maybe here is not suitable for you !

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you enjoyed our guest rooms and helpful staff! Although our complimentary breakfast is between the hours of 6:30AM-9:30AM Mon. through Friday and 7:00AM-10AM on Sat. and Sun. we do offer a 24/7 Fresh Gallery Menu in which breakfast can be ordered all day at anytime.

Me, my wife, and two small children stayed here for six nights. If you're mainly going to Universal, it's an unbelievable value. You save $16 not having to park and probably $30 each morning with their free breakfast. It's really quite a deal. The hotel is basic, but nicely renovated. The pool is also basic. The hotel does well what it intends to do well, which is avoid jacking up the room rate to pay for amenities such as water features at their pool and a restaurant and other things. On-site laundry would have been nice. If you can book this hotel for under $100/night, you're getting a great deal. It was one of the few places in Orlando that didn't feel like it was sucking the money right out of us.

Very clean, comfortable and spacious. Excellent breakfast. Staff are very very friendly and helpful. Stayed her for 2 weeks and have no major concerns.
I would have rated higher if the bathrooms were bigger, the sink is outside the shower and toilet room which is quite small. Also there is no guest laundry. These are just things for me that would make the stay perfect, but would certainly not put me off staying at this hotel again. It is close to universal and restaurants (walking distance). Close by is the bus stops for I drive trolley bus. All in all had a fantastic experience at this hotel.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The service at front desk was excellent. The hotel prices were excellent and the breakfast skillet was very good. The variety available at breakfast was very good not just cereals, toast and bagels. The biggest advantage was we could simply walk or take a shuttle to universal. Universal down town does not offer free parking like Disney and we saved a few bucks by staying here. The rooms were well kept, the WI-fi and TV channel line up were excellent and the staff gave us a room facing universal. I would highly recommend this hotel for people planing to visit the theme parks in Orlando.

We stayed at the Hyatt Universal for 5 nights in May. The hotel is located very close to Universal and offers a free shuttle service. We had the most enthusiastic shuttle driver I have ever seen, Nash. He had us entertained with jokes, singing and dancing. The room was comfortable and clean, the beds were very comfortable. The room set up was very good with refrigerator and sink and a partially seperated lounge area. The bathroom was a little on the small side but still not a big deal. A free breakfast is provided in the morning which was good, however a bit crowded during our stay. The pool area is on the small side however most people are at a theme park so it was never busy or crowded. Parking was available onsite for free. I felt that we needed a car while we stayed there as there was not a huge choice for dining in the immediate area. If I was travelling to Orlando to visit Universal again, I would definitely choose the Hyatt Universal based on value, location and comfort.

This hotel was terrific for the price...free breakfast (not just coffee and danish, but eggs, cereal, oatmeal, etc.), free parking, free wi-fi, less than 4 miles from Disney parks and attractions...numerous high quality and moderately priced, casual restaurants in walking and driving distance. The room was clean, had a sectional sofa, mini-fridge and king-sized bed. Very good service from the front desk! Wer will definitely stay here on our next visit to Orlando.
