A new eight-story, 175-room hotel may be coming to Orlando, Fla., settling in on north International Drive.

Le Royal International Development, owner of 3.5 acres of land at 5360 International Drive, will seek approval for a nearly 199,000-square-foot Hyatt House hotel from the Orlando Municipal Planning Board on May 20, according to city of Orlando documents.
