The Hyatt Regency Orlando is a hotel directly connected to the Orange County Convention Center located on International Drive in Orlando, Florida. The 32-story, 1641-room hotel was originally constructed in 1986 as The Peabody Orlando, a brand extension of the original Peabody Hotel in Memphis, Tennessee.

In late 2010, a $450 million renovation of the hotel added a 31-story wing that doubled the number of rooms from 891 to 1641 and added a resort pool complete with a water slide, waterfall, bridges, a kiddie area, a splash pad, an outdoor restaurant, and cabanas for rent. [1] The expansion tower, standing at 428 ft (130 m), is the second tallest building in metropolitan Orlando only surpassed by the SunTrust Center in Downtown Orlando. [2]

On August 28, 2013, UST Hotel Joint Venture Ltd. sold The Peabody Orlando for $717 million, to Hyatt Hotels. [3] The hotel was renamed Hyatt Regency Orlando on October 1, 2013. [4]
