We like Hyatt Place hotels. Why? Because we know what we are going to get before setting foot in the lobby. Hyatt Corp's cookie-cutter approach results in a very appealing "recipe." All Hyatt Place hotels, including this Colorado Springs location, are low-rise properties with high-end features and low-end prices. Hyatt's signature "Grand Beds" with cozy sheets and fluffy pillows, 42-inch flat screen televisions, complimentary continental breakfasts and Starbucks specialty coffees are standard perks. Oh, and did we mention, the gyms are pretty good too!
While they're not huge, and will often sport fewer machines than other hotel properties in the same town, Hyatt Place's workout rooms offer top notch Life Fitness cardio machines with attached plasma televisions and a dumbbell set, enough for a quick sweat. This Hyatt Place, however, sports a few more machines than the typical HP offering, which is an added bonus. We love to see these high-end machines offered at affordable hotels.
The primary negative for guests of this hotel is its very close proximity to the busy highway, nearly 50 yards? Request a room as far away from the highway as possible and you'll likely enjoy a more peaceful night's rest--room numbers in the 30's are closer to the noise.
