The Hyatt Regency Orlando is a massive convention hotel directly connected to the Orange County Convention Center near 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.

Opened in late 2010, a $450 million renovation of the hotel added a 32-story wing that doubled the number of rooms from 891 to 1641.[1] The expansion tower, standing at 428 ft (130 m), is the second tallest building in metropolitan Orlando only surpassed by the SunTrust Center downtown.[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]
