You check in at a kiosk that spits out your key, and without delay, head to a huge semipartitioned room with giant beds and a sitting area, plus an extra pullout sofa. If you're not familiar with the standardized brand, it has up-to-date design, a 42-inch HDTV you can plug a laptop or a iPod into, granite bathrooms, wet bar, free continental breakfast, Wi-Fi, and plenty of space for five (six if two sleep on the pullout), all from $89. Seriously, why can’t they all be like this? A second location at I-Drive isn't within spitting distance of Universal's gates as this one is, but it is nearer to more places to eat (8741 International Dr., Orlando; 407/370-4720; http://orlandoconventioncenter.place.hyatt.com; 150 rooms, $127–$209 rooms two double beds). Both underwent 2013 renovations.
