Note: Travelpod won't let me have two entries in their correct order on the same date, so this actually happened on June 6.

While I love vacations and traveling, I've never been on many, and this was my first one on a plane with diabetes as an (annoying) companion. So naturally, I was nervous about getting through those security scanners …

Universal studios and islands of adventure

... the loops and corkscrews at high speed. The queue was about 1.5 hours and the express half an hour. With our wheelchair though we skipped it all with no queue and did the ride a couple times. The mummy ride was an indoor roller coaster through darkness and occasional flames bursting out, another favourite. By 9pm the park was closed and we were satisfied with our days productiveness and also too tired to travel further so checked into orlando for another ...

... we found ourselves gazing in wonder at our home for the foreseeable future - a beautiful 6 bedroom house with a huge kitchen, a game room, a backyard pool and an innovatively odd bench seat/garbage receptacle combo. Even the disconcertingly Truman Show feel of the area, with its neatly matching houses, improbably immaculate lawns, carefully screened-in backyards, and dozens of matching sets of rental minivans poised in the standard two-van driveways eagerly awaiting their ...

... at Hollywood Studios at 7:00am, needed to wait until 7:45am to get through the gates but we were first in line - reason being that the demand for Jedi Training is so popular - whilst we were waiting we got talking to the staff and they let us scan in before the gates opened so we could get a head start on the 1000 people who had since arrived, they were here for either Jedi Training or Toy Story Mania ( another attraction we have been unable to do due to demand ...

... out of the park to the CityWalk section, and – after a little shopping - eventually settled on a place called Churrascaria with a buffet salad bar type deal (for the girls) and an unlimited Brazillian grill (for me). I kept things civil with a Corona, but the girls drank some very strong sangria and spent the most of dinner and the shuttle ride home very tipsy. We made it back early though, and who knows, we might even make it to sleep before 10PM ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Place Orlando Universal

    Wonderful Hotel

    from

    I booked my stay at this hotel through Hotwire and found a FABULOUS deal on the day of my stay!!!!

    Watch your belongings!!!

    from

    When arriving at this hotel, my friend and I couldn't have been more thrilled with the look and feel of everything. But it all turned around when we left to go to Universal the next morning. We left around 9:15am and returned at 5:45pm. My friend went to her bag to put back her credit card and I.D. into her wallet and immediately noticed money was missing. We thought maybe she spent it not realizing it. But when I went to go check my wallet to be on the safe side, everything was gone. Funny thing about where my wallet was: It was in my purse, which was in my luggage, under clothes, with the lid to the suitcase down. That means they rifled through all our things! The moment we saw there was a theft in our room, we went to the front desk to talk to the management (who left us waiting there for 15minutes!). The manager was very cold and unsympathetic. She told us there was nothing she could do and that she would file an insurance claim. We told her we were going to file a police report (which we did) and still she didn't seem to care one bit. Before sending us on our way, she told us that the general manager would be contacting us and perhaps comping our stay. Needless to say, we never heard from the general manager and we left very unhappy. The policewoman who dusted my wallet for fingerprints told us that it wasn't the first time she had been to this particular hotel for the same reason. Don't stay at this hotel. And if you do, leave the "do not disturb" sign on the door at all times.

    Hated the place,management especially!!

    from

    Took my wife and my 4 yr old daughter for her first disney vacation.Since I have been to orlando a couple of times and stayed in various places-always good, I thought I'd try the hyatt place...BIG MISTAKE!! We arrived from a 26 hr fliight from South africa, and everything had gone so smoothly.As soon as we arrive,not a single hello, not a single hi,not from the receptionist nor the manager- but we check-in anyway.As soon as we get to the room,to our shock, the receptionist gave us a room that was already occupied!!!!!That's definetely a first for me who travels a lot....lot.So I go downstairs and NOT EVEN A SORRY!!!

    Disappointing

    from

    After reading the reviews, I was looking forward to staying at this hotel. We arrived at 2:30pm, which was thirty minutes early so we had no problem waiting for a room until 3pm check-in time. At 3pm, we were told it could be an hour before a room would be ready for us. We waited another 45 minutes and then asked if a room was ready since there were several people also waiting for a room. At that time, they said there was about six more room to be cleaned before a room with a king size bed that I requested 2 months ago when I made the reservation would be cleaned. Therefore, we cancelled our reservation and we went down the way to another hotel, which got us into a room within 5 minutes.

    Loved the Hyatt Place Universal Studios

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights after having stayed at the Royal Pacific Resort for 3 nights. Let me say that the rooms here were much better than the standard room at the RPR.

    Best beds ever!!!

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for one night for the purpose of visiting Sea World (10 min drive). It is undergoing major renovations while it is being converted from an AmeriSuites, but still had a fabulous stay. The room was huge, an L shaped sleeper sofa, a wet bar, table and chairs, work desk, a large flat screen TV, vanity with sink, and the most luxurios beds I have ever slept in for a non luxury hotel! I hated to get out of bed in the morning. Big fluffy pillows, and a bed you just sank into (in a good way!). The decor was warm tones, and added a cozy feel to the room. Despite the lobby area with tarps hanging and noise and workers all around, the front desk staff couldn't have been more pleasant. We were allowed to check in early, 10:30 am, and the front desk girl personally showed us the pool, and the breakfast area, and escorted us to the elevator. It was a nice touch. We were not disturbed at all with the construction, as we were out all day. I believe they are to have a cafe and/or a grab and go type store, but they obviously aren't completed yet. The breakfast in the morning was very good for a free breakfast-hot food (eggs, sausage), cereal, toast, bagels, pastries, juices, milk, fresh fruit-pretty much the basic essentials to hold you over until lunch. Also, a TGI Fridays and a Cracker Barrel are within walking distance. Oh, and there was also a small exercise room, with decent equipment, and a pool. The hotel is also right across the street from Universal Studios, and down the street from International Drive. I would definately stay here again!

    Very nice rooms.................

    from

    We have just returned for a weekend in Orlando at the Hyatt Place - Amerisuites.

    Wonderful Stay

    from

    Let me say the bad first. Two words: SPRING BREAKERS. I think there was grad night going on, and with the behavior of these guys and gals, all i could do is think to myself, "was I THAT messed up in high school?" Other than that the front desk was more than wonderful. The new remodeling job is what you expect of something with the "HYATT" name a part of it. a 42" flat TV in your room is a great touch. The only thing I wish is that they would have went the step further and redid the bathrooms with the walk up showers. I have stayed since and will definately stay again as long as it stays this good!

    Orlando Vet's Next Best Bet!!!

    from

    This is the same review I posted under the Amerisuites Universal name. It's for the same hotel so I figured I'd post over here as they've had a transition in names at the hotel.

    They are pretty dishonest, and someone had sticky fingers. . .

    from

    Ok, do not let my title fool you. The room was very nice, cozy, comfortable. HOWEVER, the hotel did not live up to its description, and I had some items missing from my luggage when I returned home. So here is my story:
