There’s no question this is the best Hyatt Regency in the DC area (the only Hyatt nicer in the area is Park Hyatt DC). Take a look at this brand new property you’re going to want to check out the next time you’re in DC….
Frontier Airlines has been having a ton of fare sales lately. Some of these occurred over the busy summer travel season and represented great values. As we move into fall, we should generally see more sales (and better ones) to fill in empty gaps throughout the rest of the year when travel is a little slower than the heart of summer. These are the lowest prices I’ve seen Frontier offer. This is a one-day sale. Today’s Frontier Airlines sale features $15 one-way fares. Here are some sample fares: From Washington, DC: Atlanta […]
Hyatt has been doing a ton of development overseas, with a very rich pipeline. But, the US hasn’t seen nearly the same level of development. Hyatt lacks properties in some key markets, where in others it lacks “depth of brand”, offering only one or two of their brands in a major market. The two new additions are in markets they already have properties but could definitely use another.

I was lucky enough to purchase a renewal for my wife and I just a month or so before they declared bankruptcy. The company that bought their assets out […]
Did you submit a picture to win a free airline ticket yet? View From The Wing has some news on changes to the Hyatt Visa card. The card is now free for the first year, which I think is a big plus. Earlier this year they added double points for restaurants, airline tickets and rental cars, which was also a positive move. On the down side, I think the benefit they added earlier that allowed you to earn credits towards elite status is a bit pricey. $20K in spend gets […]
Most people will know the program that covers such brands as Holiday Inn, Crowne Plaza and Intercontinental Hotels as Priority Club. They’ve changed the name of the program to IHG Rewards. I don’t find their program that rewarding so I don’t spend a lot of time writing about it or staying at the properties. That being said, they offered me a lucrative amount of points (71,800 in all) if I completed all the goals of the challenge. You need to register for the promotion to see what types of offers […]
