This past April, I stayed one night at the Hyatt Place Raleigh Durham Airport.
My flight arrived RDU late on a Friday, so I decided it was best to stay at an airport hotel (The next day, I was heading to downtown Raleigh for the weekend – to see friends and run the Rock N Roll Raleigh Marathon). I’m a Hyatt kind of girl always trying to get extra Hyatt stays in, so I was happy to learn that there was a Hyatt Place near RDU. With the usual delays, I took the shuttle to the hotel, checked in.
The room looked just like a Hyatt Place!
Saturday morning, I decided to go for a quick run. Although the hotel is a mile or two from the airport, I found that there really was no place to run outdoors – – so I headed back.
I peeked in the hotel fitness center. The room was rather small, but the machines were new and in good condition. The room also had a mirror, a TV and a water fountain. This fitness center is good for an airport hotel. It is for fitness people, who want to get their workout in while on the road. It is not lavish, but it has good machines, is clean and gets the job done.
I would gladly return to this hotel if my travels brought me through RDU. I prefer Hyatt Place Hotels over any of the competitors’ “equivalent level” hotels. And the coffee is excellent at Hyatt Places!
My only gripe about Hyatt Place hotels? I wish that they would install safes in the rooms like at higher end Hyatts.
