Hyatt Place, Las Vegas

On a recent trip I had a quick overnight stay in Las Vegas. Arriving quite late at night and leaving fairly early the next day I wanted to add an extra Hyatt stay. The Hyatt in Vegas are limited – to one. Luckily it is quite close to the airport and has turned in to one of my favourite Hyatt Place properties – primarily as the staff are so friendly here.

I arrived so late that I had the shuttle train to baggage claim to myself. Having arrived on United I should have gone to the new Terminal 2, but nothing stops passengers with hand baggage leaving from Terminal 1 and so I hopped on the train to T1.

Although generally taxi prices in Las Vegas a monstrous the Hyatt Place is only about half-way to the strip and so I usually catch a cab rather than waiting for the shuttle. I get the shuttle back though.

The agent at check-in noted my Diamond Status and I confirmed that I wanted the points please. There was a package waiting for me which they quickly located. The room was on the top floor but without the usual strip view. It was one night and so I did not mind.

As one of the first converted the rooms are typically Hyatt Place.

Quick and easy check-out and being the only person on the Hyatt bus I managed to chat to the driver – he was great – and certainly made me feel pleased with my stay.


A Hyatt Place with just the nicest staff you could ask for. Not a great location for The Strip, but a good location for the airport.


  1. Did a mattress run there to meet my Hyatt Diamond Status Challenge. You are right about the friendly staff. I prefer some of the more upscale offerings in Vegas because they are generally good value for the money but I suspect I will be back at the Hyatt sometime next year to keep my Hyatt status in place.
