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 a new hotel promotion out that can earn you bonus points in Las Vegas through the end of September, 2015. You can register here. You can earn up to 1,500 bonus points after every 3rd night during the promotion period, which runs until September 30, 2015. Hyatt’s partnership with MGM Resorts/M Life makes earning points in Las Vegas much easier than it used to be, especially at properties you actually want to stay at. If you’re wondering what these properties are like, you can follow along my […]
It was a crazy week of travel for me, so I got fairly far behind on my blog reading. Here’s a few of the key posts I missed from around the world of travel this week. Google Flights is answering any and all questions. I’ll be interested to see how deep they go, and I applaud them for doing it. I was nervous when they took over ITA Matrix a few years ago, my favorite travel tool. Results-oriented, I was right, but I wish I was wrong. There have been lots of […]
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 […]
A quick review of Hyatt Place Austin Downtown. Hyatt Place is my favorite limited service brand. This hotel is well located, clean and spacious. The staff was incredibly warm and inviting during my entire visit.
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 […]
LAX is a pretty major airport as far as travel goes. Not only do you have the huge population of Southern California but LAX is a major jumping off point for trips to Hawaii and Asia. I’ve stayed in the airport area a handful of times over the years and never really found a property that was a “go-to” place near the airport. I’ve stayed a handful of times at the Sheraton LAX Gateway, which is probably the best I had experienced until recently. I can’t say it was anything […]
