Charlotte, NC, affectionately known as the Queen City, has become the official southern metropolis for relaxation for my best friend and me. We are dually, professional and contemporary, with strong empathetic sides, so, we arrive with the intention of unpacking the emotional baggage that we’ve carried. As always, I am responsible for selecting the hotel. So, after much consideration of style, amenities, and spending, I chose the Hyatt Place on South Stream Boulevard for two nights of peace, restoration, and connection.
HYATT PLACE 4119 S Stream Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28217
Room 222 presented an open layout with a living room separated by a wall from two cozy, queen beds. Our spacious living area was furnished with a brown, textured sectional with a pull out bed and wall sconces, which proved to be essential as my friend slept unbothered while I read on the sofa. Although, we never turned it on, our flat screen TV was conveniently juxtaposed between the sleeping and living area. Our room also provided a black mini-fridge for our leftovers, as well as, a sink and mirror for glasses and dishes. Consistent with the design, our small bathroom was filled with ample towels and washcloths, but its mirror and sink were uniquely positioned next to the drawers in the bedroom; low usage of towels was suggested, in lieu of sustainability, but we declined.
Our stay came with a complimentary hot breakfast of cage-free eggs and natural bacon, sausage, cereal, juice, and much more. In addition, my friend and I sat at the 24 hour bar and talked with an employee about his recent international travels, while I sipped a cocktail and a glass of wine. The hotel also offered a fully equipped gym, free Wi-Fi, and a pool.
Two nights at the Hyatt Place was valued at $160.20. As a Hyatt member, I was fortunate to use points accumulated from past lodging in exchange for a lower rate.
