Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Orlando: Stay for Free
The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress is a dream of vacation destination. With over the top amenities, beautiful grounds and decadent restaurants there is little reason to ever leave the premises. Located within sight of the Disney fireworks, the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress appeals to pleasure travelers, be in solo or with family, as well business travelers attending conventions.
While Orlando vacations are often geared towards visiting all the many attractions that exist within the city, when staying at the Grand Cypress you are going to want to leave room in you itinerary for some time at the pool. Even calling it a pool seems insufficient; this extraordinary water attraction is lagoon style complete with 12 waterfalls, a rope bridge, a water slide and a swim through grotto. This pool appeals to everybody but particularly to children; be prepared for them to ask to skip a day at the theme parks in favor of playing here.
For those looking for less wet vacation pursuits Grand Cypress has you covered. The hotel offers bicycle and boat rentals to allow you to fully take advantage of the picturesque grounds and lake. For the racquet enthusiast the tennis club has 12 courts, 8 of which are clay. Golf is available, as is rock climbing. You can also keep up with your fitness in a well equipped 24/7 fitness center, before relaxing guilt free at the Marilyn Monroe Spa.
If you need a break from the kids for a day the Hyatt runs Camp Hyatt, a program that will keep your small people entertained and safe while you enjoy some adult time. They participate in a huge range of activities, including fish feeding, rock climbing, crafts and water fun. Camp Hyatt is available for children from 3-12 on a full or half day basis. During parts of the year this program only runs during the weekends so check with the staff prior to your stay to insure availability.
Cypress Grand does have onsite parking but be warned, it is a bit of hike through the convention area of the hotel. To avoid frequent trips to the car, take advantage of the hotel shuttle for transportation of the theme parks. The hotel staff are extremely helpful in facilitating any requests and are a wealth of information when in comes to planning your Orlando exploits.
Grand Cypress boasts two full service restaurants, three lounges and a market geared towards picking snacks up on the go. The LakeHouse is the only full restaurant on premises that serves all meals; Hemingway’s serves its island inspired menu exclusively at dinner. Of the three lounges two are located outdoors and serve a snack menu (Hurricanes Lounge and On The Rocks Poolside Lounge) and one can be found inside the lobby and serves specialty cocktails, beer and wine (Trellis Lounge).
Members of the Hyatt reward program can apply their points towards as stay at the Grand Cypress. Points can be accrued from previous stays at Hyatt properties, through travel on any of the 27 affiliated airlines, and through any rentals at AVIS. You can also earn points by using a Hyatt reward Visa card offered by Chase Banks.
How to Stay at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress for Free
My favorite option is the Chase Sapphire Preferred. It comes with a signup bonus of 50,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards Points. After getting your signup bonus, you’re be able to transfer your points to the Hyatt Rewards Program. The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress costs 15,000 points per night so you’d be able to use 45,000 of those points to stay for 3 FREE nights whenever you’d like. Looking at the room rates there, 3 nights would normally cost you about $715 after they get done adding the fees in. They also have upgrade options where you can get a better room for additional points. They also have a cash + points option. For 7,500 points and $100 you can also get their standard room saying you quite a bit of money.
You could also signup for the Hyatt credit card, although the signup bonus isn’t nearly as valuable when redeeming at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. The Hyatt credit card comes with 2 free nights at any Hyatt worldwide. If you were to use those 2 nights at the Regency in Grand Cypress it would save you about $475. Personally I’d much rather use those 2 free nights at an all-inclusive resort in Cancun where the savings would be over $1,000!
