It's in Westshore according to their website, must be a renovation of an existing property. Opening Fall 2007. The website isn't done, but it will be located here (lucky guess on my part).

We are pleased to introduce Hyatt Place, a new kind of hotel that puts style, innovation and The Hyatt Touch® within everyone's reach. Our guests will enjoy a spacious guestroom with a 42" flat-panel HDTV, our signature Hyatt Grand Bed™, a plush Cozy Corner oversized sofa-sleeper that is separated from the sleeping area, and complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi internet access throughout the hotel.

Guests at Hyatt Place may purchase signature hot breakfast entrées along with Starbucks® specialty coffees or enjoy a free continental breakfast. Hyatt Place also offers a variety of freshly prepared, café quality items, including made-to-order entrées, sandwiches, soups, salads and pizza which guests can order 24 hours a day, seven days a week via a touch screen menu in the Guest Kitchen or from the Gallery Host.

Discover how perfectly a hotel can fit your lifestyle. Hyatt Place. It's so you™.

Nice perk! Now I have to figure out how to get an IATA card.. Anyone know what it takes?

I've seen a couple Hyatt Place hotels, and all the ones I've seen are all former Amerisuites Hotels. Haven't seen their rooms, but I'd love to check out their 42" HD tvs. That would make the rate worth it for me.

If you don't mind me asking, what do you do as a travel agent? I've always thought about being a travel agent, ever since I was a kid, but I was told it's not a good idea to go into this industry since everyone does their own online research/booking these days. I'm still interesting in learning how to get into the business though. Traveling is my passion! :)

^I don't do anything now, but I worked for a travel agency a few years ago (they went out of business), and even though I didn't sell vacations (I did office work in shipping and accounting), I had the training and got the card. I think it finally expires this fall.

I wouldn't advocate trying to get a job as a travel agent, which is really just a low paying customer service job these days since the airlines, car rental companies and hotels all but eliminated the spiffs they paid travel agents for bookings.

The only way to become a travel agent is to start your own online agency or something. I have a friend that did that and he brings in over a $1 million a year now.
