Disclaimer: I was given a discount for our stay at the Hyatt Place, however, all thoughts expressed in this post are an accurate reflection of my opinion of Hyatt Place.
If you've been keeping up with my Instagram feed, you know I've been a busy little bee these past few weekends. Since Mr. A returned home from training for the National Guard and I was invited to cover an event in Charlotte, we decided to stick around for an extra day and enjoy the city. We're pretty frequent travelers so we know our way around the hotel scene well enough to know which hotels to avoid and which ones to frequent. While in Charlotte, we stayed at the City Park Hyatt Place, a.k.a our home away from home, it definitely falls into the latter category.
Hyatt Place is equipped to accommodate just about your every whim. Which is great for people like me who forget something every. single. time. Seriously, I could pack a week in advance and still manage to leave something behind. I suppose it's part of my charm.
But seriously, Hyatt Place? They think of everything.
Forgot your toothbrush? No problem.
Left your cell phone charger? Borrow one of their universal cell-phone chargers.
Feel like a nightcap but don't have a designated driver? Go hang out at their bar downstairs.
And then of course, there's the breakfast. My favorite meal of the day and biggest guilty pleasure. Mr. A and I woke up extra early and made a mad dash to their dining room so we'd have plenty of time to enjoy ourselves. It's not often we have a Little J free breakfast, so when we finally get the chance to enjoy a nice quiet breakfast, we tend to go full-throttle. This morning was no different.
Though sadly we didn't have time to take advantage of their fitness room, they've got all the goodies that gym rats, such as myself, enjoy. Treadmills, free-weighs, benches, and even a gorgeous outdoor pool for you to relax in after your workout session (after you've taken a shower of course because ewwww).
Speaking of the pool and my inability to travel without forgetting something, as soon as we arrived, we discovered I managed to forget my swimsuit. Boo :( Even though we weren't able to go for an early morning swim after breakfast, I couldn't resist dipping my toes in the pool. Maybe next time...
The rooms themselves are perfect for weary travelers looking for a place to rest their heads. The interiors are very modern and sleek, which is a welcomed break from the floral patterns that typically adorn the inside of most hotel rooms. Call me spoiled but I hate hotels that look as though they were last redecorated at the mid-turn of the century.
Both Mr. A and I have stayed in many a hotel bed, but this one was ridiculously comfortable. The sheets were soft and lush, and the best part? They weren't scratchy.
Since we've previously stayed at a Hyatt, we pretty much knew what to expect, but even still, we were pleasantly surprised to discover they had added in a few more perks for their guest, including a coffee/bar area and a small bakery.
All and all we had a fantastic stay! Mr. A and I have already made plans to return to Charlotte next month, and we already know where we will be staying.
