Hotels tried charging for Wi-Fi. It worked for a while until free Wi-Fi became table stakes at hotels. Breakfast has generally always been free at limited service hotels. Now, Hyatt is trying to take that in the opposite direction?
Hyatt is offering points and miles on all Hyatt Place and Hyatt House stays through the end of June, 2018. As Hilton does away with the Double Dip, Hyatt temporarily creates their own version with two promos!
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. First, the Denver market is getting a new Hyatt property that is unique while adding some well-known labels to the market. Hyatt […]

Summer was always a time of great memories for me as a kid. As I got older and entered the work force, summer was just a hotter drive to and from work and a lot less traffic in the DC area. It took having kids to really remember how great summer can be. I’ve teamed up with MommyPoints and Points, Miles & Martinis to serve up a great summer giveaway to help you make your own fun memories this year. But first, I wanted to share a few of my memories. We grew up […]
Even though I’m a self-avowed Hyatt Homer TM, I think I’m on fairly solid ground the Hyatt House brand represents some of the best quality in extended stay properties for the US market. Virtually all of these properties have either been built or renovated in the last 3 years. That means clean, consistent products across the chain of Hyatt House properties. You won’t find a Hyatt House in every market (though they have over 50 properties open and growing) but when you do you’ll be in good hands. And, Hyatt […]
Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for a free Briggs & Riley TORQ suitcase! Hyatt is dropping two more pins on the map in places where they’re currently a bit under served. First up, construction is under way for a new Hyatt House in downtown Salt Lake City. Hyatt has a few properties in Utah but only one downtown, a Hyatt Place. I’d rather see a full-service property like a Hyatt Regency, but I’m glad to see more presence in downtown. Limited service/extended stay is an area I think Hyatt […]
2 quick tidbits expanding the Hyatt network: Park Hyatt Busan has opened marking the second Park Hyatt in South Korea and the 10th in Asia. I’m a huge fan of the Park Hyatt brand. The Park Hyatt Tokyo is a favorite of mine. I’m always happy to see another Park Hyatt pop up. This property appears to be entering the program as a Category 4, which means 15,000 Gold Passport points per night. Hyatt has also announced development of two new properties in Panama, a Hyatt Place and Hyatt House. […]
