New Hyatt Destination Fee for NYC
Did you know that Hyatt (as well as Hilton) have introduced a new [U][B]mandatory[/B][/U] Destination Fee on some of their properties in NYC? It’s $25 / night, and here’s how they explain it. [URL]https://www.hyatt.com/en-US/hotel/new-york/andaz-wall-street/nycaw/policies[/URL] I found it when trying to book at the Andaz Wall Street. It’s also charged on stays at Grand Hyatt New York and Hyatt Centric Times Square New York. I could not find it on their other properties.
I also noticed that Hilton charges something similar in some of their properties in NYC. I wonder who started first…

Guess it’s the “city” version of a resort charge.
