Every year my Memorial Day weekends have been a fixed series of events that include the Atlanta Jazz Festival, a family cookout and a day of rest! This year I’ll be deviating from that formula completely by traveling to Florida to attend the Summer Sensation at the Hyatt Regency Orlando!
This year the hotel has packaged a holiday weekend stay that includes pool parties with mermaid lessons for the kiddies, an Italian-American barbecue with their acclaimed chef and a concert featuring some of the hottest up and coming country music artists! On Sunday May 24, Josh Thompson, JT Hodges and Nikki Lane will heat up the night at an outdoor concert on the hotel garden terrace. I’m not the biggest country music fan, but I have to admit after doing my research that these acts are pretty good. And I wouldn’t be surprised if we started hearing their names everywhere!
I love to travel, so the opportunity to check out a a new city and hotel is always a thrill. Although I’ve been to Orlando, I rarely stay in a hotel there. So I’m excited to see what the Hyatt Regency Orlando is bringing to the table. You all know that I’m a bit of a hotel snob. I look for comfort (that includes cleanliness and ambiance), style (well designed with nice fixtures) and service (room service and more from a friendly accommodating staff). Of course value matters, but that is subjective in each city. I’ll let you guys know if they bring it!
Anyway, what I’m most excited about is the food! Is that bad? The reviews of Chef Will Walters are pretty impressive. So I hope he’s given free reign to get dowwwn(!) at this barbecue– my mouth waters just thinking about what it could be. I love Italian food. And as a southern girl, barbecue is in my blood (low country style of course). So I’m curious to see what he comes up with!!!
I don’t have any little ones, so I’m a little jealous that I can’t attend Mermaid Academy in the grotto pool, but I’ll survive as long as I can hang poolside for a little while. I’m really anxious for summer at this point!
Anyway, facebook me or tweet me @DineWithDani if you’re (going to be) in Orlando for Memorial Day! And let me know if you’re coming the Summer Sensation! Its going to be a good weekend! Click here for tickets!!
