Hyatt News And Notes: New Properties, New Amenities

Lots of announcements for new properties at Hyatt these days:

Hyatt is converting an existing property in the Cherry Creek market of Denver to a Hyatt Place.  This used to be a Loews.

There’s already a number of properties in the Denver market but they don’t have a limited service presence in downtown.  While I enjoy the Hyatt Regency in Denver, I think adding a limited service Hyatt property closer to downtown is a definite plus here.

They’ve announced a Hyatt Regency in Uzbekistan, scheduled to open in 2015.

Expansion in Northern India with Hyatt Amritsar.

And, 3 new properties in Saudi Arabia coming up.

On a separate note (and a positive one) for Diamond members of Hyatt’s Gold Passport program, Hyatt has formally announced the expansion of choices for Diamond welcome amenities internationally.  This was announced on Milepoint a bit over a month ago, but they’re now sending out e-mails notifying all Diamond members.

More choices is always better.  I suspect this is one of those technology issues that Hyatt has been dealing with in terms of being able to more effectively implement benefits consistently across all properties.

I definitely regard Hyatt as my favorite chain right now, and Hyatt Diamond as my favorite hotel status.  Seeing Hyatt continue to expand globally is a welcome sign.
