A great gesture from Park Hyatt Goa

We all live in an ever changing world, right? Plans change all the time, but usually for business travellers. Once upon a time I did not make it to NYC in time because I had a flat tire on my plane. I had to spend a few days after trying to convince the hotel about the fact they should not charge for no show in that case. A few days ago, I was tossing and turning, trying to talk myself out of a Hyatt Diamond Trial. And I signed up anyways. Like a lot of my readers or followers on Twitter may have known, I’m back at the Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa later this week. These guys are…

Hotel Review: Hyatt Place Amsterdam Airport

I recently found myself on an extra night layover in the Netherlands, and while I usually stay put at the Manhattan Hotel, Rotterdam, in this case, I decided to head to a hotel closer to the airport, since I had a very early morning flight to catch and I wasn’t sure if the railway service would be up and running at that hour. The choice boiled down to Hyatt Place since the Sheraton across the airport was quoting at 269 Euros that night, and that is expensive just to sleep a few hours.

Resisting the urge for Hyatt Diamond Trial

I’m torn here and this is not a good feeling. Sometimes I feel the golden criteria for being a blogger based on BoardingArea should be that you have Hyatt’s Diamond status. And I haven’t had that for most of the 3 years I’ve been around. See, here are the key benefits of being a Hyatt Diamond: 30% point bonus when choosing points Best room available upon arrival, excluding suites Access to the Regency Club or Grand Club lounge featuring complimentary continental breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres. Daily complimentary full breakfast in hotels without a club lounge. 4 Suite Upgrades annually on eligible paid nights (valid for 7 nights each) A welcome point bonus or food and beverage amenity during each…
