U.S. News Review

Perched on the edge of Disney World just off of I-4, the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress has a great atmosphere for R&R-seeking couples and boisterous families alike. The picturesque lobby — an airy, 18-story atrium — is filled with foliage and houses two of the hotel's lounge areas, making it a nice environment for an afternoon snack or an evening drink. For something a little more filling, try one of the hotel's dining options: Hemingway's serves dishes infused with Spanish and Cuban flavors, while Cascade boasts American favorites. The hotel also has a sushi bar and an alfresco bistro. Recent travelers rave about this resort's impeccable service and seemingly endless list of activities and amenities. On-site activities include racquetball, tennis, swimming and golf at four Jack Nicklaus Signature Design courses, as well as the Camp Hyatt kids program and babysitting services. Meanwhile, guest rooms at this Hyatt hotel earn praise for their bright decor and features like balconies, high-speed Internet access and flat-screen TVs. And remember, if you're a Hyatt Gold Passport member, you can earn or use points here for additional perks.

Fodor's

“Rooms overlooking Disney have a spectacular view of the evening fireworks at Epcot and the Magic Kingdom, and guests can watch the giant hot-air balloon rise and lower at Downtown Disney.”
Award: Fodor's Choice

Condé Nast Traveler

“... it's such a bargain, considering everything that you get, and ... it strikes that nice balance of being convenient to Disney World yet also providing a calm counterpoint to the Disney insanity.”
