Presented By Hyatt Regency Orlando
Dec. 7th, 2016

As one of the entertainment capitals of the world, Orlando is bustling with tourists, students, and business travelers, who come to enjoy the splendors that the city has to offer. At the Hyatt Regency Orlando, guests have access to the perfect balance of work, play, and everything in between. With over 315,000 square feet of meeting space, a convenient location to Orlando’s hotspots, and a luxurious pool and spa complex, there is little left to be desired when on your next business trip.  

Known as “The City Beautiful,” Orlando attracts millions of visitors each year for its nightlife, theme parks, and weather. These attractions also bring thousands of business tourists to the city each year, who attend conferences in one of the many luxury resorts in the area. Though business travel can be exhausting, it doesn’t mean your time in the city has to be drab! If you’re in town for a short period, there are a multitude of ways to squeeze in a few luxurious activities to make the most of your trip.

After a long day of meetings, it can be necessary to decompress before going back to work. Luckily, Orlando is home to some of the country’s best wellness centers. At The Spa, guests can treat themselves to packages that last anywhere from 90 minutes to four hours, with a variety of services including Swedish massages, aroma therapy, and manicures. For those on a time crunch, enjoy “The Spa Getaway,” where you can enjoy a 30-minute express facial in addition to a spa manicure and pedicure. Facials can be customized based on your skincare needs, though the “Ultimate Cleansing Facial” is recommended for travelers who have been exposed to harsh climate changes during travel and skin-parching airplane conditions.

There’s nothing quite like the look on a client’s face when they get picked up for a dinner meeting in a Maserati Gran Turismo or a Porsche Cayenne. Before heading back to your hotel for the afternoon, rent a luxury vehicle from Enterprise’s Exotic Car Collection. If a Maserati or a Porsche isn’t your style, this ultra-luxe service also offers an array of Aston Martins, Audis, and Bentley models.

If you’re looking for a place to enjoy a sumptuous meal with colleagues for the evening, K Restaurant is your best bet. Owner and Executive Chef Kevin Fonzo has earned just about every award in the Orlando foodie scene, from “Best Restaurant in Orlando” to becoming one of America’s top-rated restaurants by Zagat and Bon Appetite Magazine. All of this is for good reason. With a fresh, seasonally-rotating menu, K Restaurant offers succulent takes on comfort foods like mac & cheese by adding Maine lobster and grilled tomatoes. In addition to the area’s most choice cuisine, the restaurant also offers an extensive wine list of local and international bottles that pair elegantly with even the most simple menu items.  

After filling up at the dinner table, end your evening with a nightcap and an ultra-rare cigar at the Corona Cigar Company. Previous visitors rave about the mojitos and the ability to enjoy their cigar on the expansive patio while listening to Latin-themed music gently playing from the speakers.

Get a little post-breakfast exercise in by strolling through a few shops in Orlando’s city center. While you may not have enough time to shop ‘til you drop on your trip, there’s always a little time to pick up a few things for your loved ones, clients, or yourself at the Mall at Millenia. Those seeking to indulge in their style sensibilities can find the best shopping experiences in stores such as Chanel, Burberry, Cartier, Henri Bendel, Jimmy Choo, and more.

Ending any day with a sunset can make it inherently more memorable and special, but ending your trip on the water at sunset? Priceless. At the The Boathouse, visitors can book an Italian Water Taxi Cruise for themselves and up to 16 guests on the restaurant’s 40-foot taxi, which includes a guided tour of Disney Springs and a wine tasting for all participants on board. After the tour, take a seat on the waterfront patio to sample famous Floridian oysters on the half-shell and Blue Star Angus carpaccio while a live band sends the day off with a song.
