Breathe a little easier at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress

If you are anything like me, you are plagued by colds, sniffles and sometimes even full-blown viruses whenever you go on vacation. I have notoriously sensitive sinuses, and my husband has seasonal allergies, so sometimes our trips turn into tissue-filled Benandryl® fests. Sure, loading up on vitamin C and drinking tons of water (always a good thing to do on Orlando vacation) can help, but now there's another way to get the most from vacation while literally breathing easier -- the Respire rooms by Hyatt, now available at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress.

With help from PURESolutions NA, Respire rooms are hypo-allergenic in design and execution, perfect "for all travelers but especially suited to guests with asthma, allergies and other respiratory sensitivities...[designed to] eliminate up to 98 percent of airborne viruses and bacteria, as well as pollen and other irritants commonly found in indoor environments." That's the official word, from the Hyatt press release. Here's more, from both Hyatt and Pure:

“The well-being of our guests is a top priority, and with the new Respire by Hyatt rooms, we are able to offer travelers another way to wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day,” said Tom Smith, vice president of rooms, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts. “Respire by Hyatt is a simple,but empowering initiative that we are pleased to provide to our guests.”

“The decision by Hyatt to offer hypo-allergenic rooms across several of its brands sets a new standard for service that we are proud to stand behind,” said Brian Brault, CEO, PURESolutions NA. “We are delighted to be a part of this impressive effort that allows us to create aunique clean air environment for guests without sacrificing the comfort of the hotel room.”

The rooms are beautifully decorated, too, with lots of leather, dark wood and modern touches that befit a luxury property like the Grand Cypress. So what do you think, readers? Would you go out of your way to stay in a Respire room or are you willing to take your chances in a more standard, and probably less expensive, regular room? With good looks and possible health benefits -- plus everything else this particular resort has to offer -- I have to say I am very tempted. Share your thoughts in the comments below.
