If you’re looking for a true Orlando Airport Hotel, there’s only one – the Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport Hotel. All of the other local hotel chains are more than 1 mile from the airport. I’m assuming you want to walk the least distance possible, so let’s start close to your plane and work our way out, shall we?
Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport Hotel
The Hyatt Regency at Orlando International Airport is a 4-star hotel with over 1,923 reviews on Google and boasting a 4.5 star rating.
Hyatt Regency Orlando International Airport
9300 Jeff Fuqua Blvd
Orlando, Florida, 32827
Prices for this low-end luxury hotel start at $190 per night and increase from there, no matter where you book – Expedia, Hotels.com, Agoda, and others. Members enjoy rates of up to 15% off, so if you travel a lot, it may be worth it. In addition, membership earns awards towards free nights.
The $190 room includes a 360 square foot room with one king bed, a large work desk, and a modern look and feel. If you or a member of your party is disabled, there is an ADA-approved room that contains one king bed, modern look and feel, and a handicap accessible bathroom and shower.
More specifically, each of these rooms contains: a Hyatt Grand Bed, regfrigerator, flat-screen TV, adjustable heat and AC, KenetMD skincare amenities (shampoo, conditioner, soap), hair dryer, coffee maker, iron, and ironing board. Standard additions, such as a baby crib or the morning paper, are available upon request.
Particularly useful is this Orlando hotel’s location. Not only can you step off your plane and be in bed sleeping within 20 minutes, but it’s also very close to hip restaurants, local bars, airport shops, and of course, Disney World.
With a slew of other amenities, this hotel is well worth the money to stay a night or two. There are business services and computers available upon request, meeting facilities on the main floor, a pool and state-of-the-art fitness center, and restaurants on-site as well.
Looking to cool off or get some sun? Throw on some sunscreen and step outside into the pool area. The outdoor swimming pool is heated, but you’re still in for a refreshing swim because the heat doesn’t come on when it’s warm outside. Surrounding the rectangular pool is a variety of lounge-type seating with adjustable umbrellas and lush greenery. The deck is a flat concrete with beige and tan coloring that provides a relatively non-slip surface to walk on.
If you really want to step up your stay, order some poolside service. Take a dip in the beautiful Orlando swimming pool and watch the planes fly in and out while you enjoy freshly cooked meals and mixed drinks on demand. Anything you can order from your room is available outside. The best part is the hours. The pool is open from 6:00 AM – 11:00 PM, so you’re sure to find some time to hop in for a bit.
Feeling the need to workout? Stop by the Orlando Hyatt Regency StayFit Gym. Although the weights and machinery is quite sparse for muscle-building activities, there are plenty of treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals to get your heart pumping and complete a solid cardio session. The room also has Yoga mats and resistance bands for your convenience.
This hotel is pet friendly! Dogs are allowed in the rooms at this Orlando Airport Hotel, but they’re not very cheap. For a stay of 1-6 nights, the price is $150. The rules also state that dogs may not exceed 40 pounds each or 70 pounds together. Furthermore, you can’t have more than 2 dogs in one room. If you have pets, my recommendation is to check-in without them and sneak them in later in a large piece of luggage. If your pet is trained and won’t make a ton of noise or tear the place apart, avoid the ridiculous fees and roll them right past the main counter.

The next closest hotels to the Orlando Airport are located just over a mile away on South Semoran Blvd. You’ll find all the typical names from Ramada to Holiday Inn to Courtyard Suites and Marriott. Prices here range from $66/night on the low-end to $127 on the high-end for a standard, one-bed hotel room.

After dinner, walk over to Epic Theaters at Lee Vista and catch a new movie at the freshly designed cinema. Parking will be bountiful, so you won’t have to worry about that part.
