Hyatt Place Colorado Springs Review
This past week I had the distinct pleasure of visiting Randy and the Boarding Area team at their headquarters in Colorado Springs. Lucky for me, just a few blocks away, there is a new Hyatt Place that offered a very polite welcome, a simple room with a great view, and easy valet parking that was gratis since I booked with points as a Globalist. Let’s take a look
I transferred 16k points over from my Bilt Rewards account to book the Hyatt Place Colorado Springs. The cash rate was about $160 a night, and as a I mentioned above, I got valet parking free of charge. That would have been $25 a night. So, in total, $185 vs 8k points was a pretty solid value to me.
There was a new employee at the front desk who was very nice and gave us a warm welcome.
- When: October 202
- Where: Colorado Springs, CO
- Status: Globalist
- free parking
- 2 bottles of water per night
- Rate: 8k a night ( Category 2 )
The room was very clean, modern, spacious with a couch/workdesk, and had a nice view of the mountains across the parking lot. It was everything we really expected from a Hyatt Place. Oddly, we were given two 2 queen beds when we had booked King. The hotel was pretty empty, but we were quite tired from the travel day and didn’t want to have to move.
Bathroom was a single vanity with basic individual bath products
There was a decent sized gym with a pool
Breakfast is served in the morning, which we didn’t make, and the hotel is smack dab in the middle of town. If you’re looking for a modern hotel, that isn’t overly fancy but ticks all the boxes and is a great downtown location, I wouldn’t hesitate to come back here. There are cafes, restaurants, etc all within a few minutes walk. If you’re looking for luxury, I’d look at the Broadmoor that is a 10 minute drive away.
