Marriott’s Hotel Talisa Rebrands As Grand Hyatt Vail

I always find it interesting when a hotel decides to leave one hotel group for another. In some cases these kinds of changes are justified, and a hotel could do much better with another hotel group. In other cases it sure seems to me like hotel owners…

Destination Hotels Joining World Of Hyatt

One of Hyatt’s disadvantages is that they don’t have nearly the global footprint of Hilton, Marriott, or IHG. However, I’ve been impressed by the ways in which they’ve creatively tried to expand their portfolio, both through partnerships and through…

My 2019 Mid-Year Status Qualification Update

We're now over halfway into 2019 (I'd say "where has time gone?" but I feel like I'm always wondering that), so I wanted to provide an update on how 2019 is looking for me status-wise at the halfway point. At the very beginning of 2019 I wrote a post…

Labor Dispute Closes Hyatt Regency Kathmandu

There are some strange reasons that hotels might either have a delayed opening, or might be closed temporarily. For example, the St. Regis Cairo may never open because it's owned by a Qatari company. Meanwhile in Abu Dhabi, the Grand Hyatt mysteriously…

Park Hyatt Kyoto Now Accepting Reservations

Park Hyatt is my favorite luxury hotel brand to book with points. While I generally think Park Hyatt and St. Regis are roughly comparable, I prefer World of Hyatt for being able to confirm a suite upgrade at the time of booking as a Globalist member,…

Grand Hyatt Washington DC Adds Destination Fee

Unfortunately at this point I don't think a hotel adding a destination fee is generally newsworthy anymore, because it's becoming so common. The reason I'm writing about it this time is because the Grand Hyatt Washington DC has added a destination fee,…

Review: Andaz Savannah

A couple of weeks ago Tiffany and I visited Savannah for a couple of nights and stayed at the Andaz Savannah. So here's a (fairly) brief review with my thoughts on the hotel. For the two nights we were staying, the rate was about $200 per night. In addition…

Hyatt’s (Positive) Website Changes

Review: Park Hyatt Siem Reap

I've actually stayed at the Park Hyatt Siem Reap previously, when my husband and I visited in 2014, and it feels much the same now as it did then. Siem Reap, on the other hand, has since changed to the point of being nearly unrecognizable, as extremely…

Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi Reopens After Mysterious Closure

The UAE can be a funny place sometimes. Construction in both Dubai and Abu Dhabi is seemingly endless, and often one has to wonder about the business sense behind some of the development. When you look at hotel rates in the UAE, overall they're as low…
