The hotel

From dawn till dusk, the creature comforts and free treats come thick and fast at Hyatt Place Bowling Green, located on Western Kentucky University’s hillside campus. You can wake up to complimentary breakfasts at a.m. Kitchen Skillet™, where hot sandwiches are served alongside their Bread Box, Bowls Bar, drinks-stocked Fridge, and freshly brewed Seattle’s Best® coffee. And you can end the day sipping creative concoctions at Coffee to Cocktails Bar, before snuggling up on the sofa in your room’s affectionately named ‘Cozy Corner’, maybe with a movie on the 42” TV or using the free WiFi. In the hours between, you’ve got a heated outdoor pool, StayFit Gym, 24/7 dining, and a complimentary shuttle to attractions within 5 miles of your Bowling Green base.

You increased the room rate $100.00 per night. I am a AAA member and I don't think I received my discount. I will not stay there again! I love the room and the location is great. The price rate increase was wrong.

The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed. We did not book ahead but found this hotel when trying to find something close to town. The hotel exceeded our expectations as did the staff. This was our first time staying at a Hyatt hotel and it wont be our last after this experience. If we are ever in town again this is where we will stay.

The staff members were friendly and welcoming. The building is beautifully decorated with a modern theme. The room we stayed in had a very comfy king size bed and a pull out sofa sleeper. Room was well appointed and spacious.

This is our favorite hotel to stay at whether we are moving our son in or out of college. It is perfect for visits during the year as well because of the centralized location. We enjoy the walkability factor that comes with this location.

The Hyatt is our preferred hotel at WKU. It is so convenient to everything on campus. The entire hotel is modern and new and always clean. Free breakfast and many other nice amenities make it a great choice while visiting our daughter.
