Reminder For Hyatt Elites To Save Money On Vegas Hotel Rooms

Las Vegas has plenty of hotel rooms and sometimes it feels like there are as many “deals” as there are rooms.  The endless supply of deals and packages can be a bit overwhelming.  Suffice it to say if you’re paying full price for a hotel room in Vegas you’re likely leaving money on the table (that you could be spending at the tables). For those of you with Hyatt elite status (or looking for an excuse to acquire it), don’t forget that you have a pretty lucrative discount program at […]

Quick Update On The Hyatt Category Changes

Don’t forget to enter my Sterling Silver Starbucks card giveaway. Now that I’m not on a train anymore, I took a few minutes to go over the Hyatt Gold Passport award category changes we learned about earlier this evening. First, a full list of the properties going up in category: First of all, I actually stayed at Excalibur, though I haven’t reviewed it yet.  It’s a bit scary to me that it’s moving up to a category 3, requiring 12,000 points a night.  Grand Hyatt Sao Paolo is probably under-priced, […]
