If you are driving from the airport, take the Swenson Street exit North. Go approximately 1 mile
(crossing Tropicana Avenue) and turn left at Harmon Avenue, where there is a traffic light. Hyatt
Place will be on your left in the first block. There may still be construction around that street, so
watch the signs carefully.
Note that Las Vegas can be extremely hot during the day, but will usually cool off after sundown, and
can be downright chilly at night. Please check the weather before you arrive, and plan accordingly.
