Hotel Review: Park Hyatt Hyderabad


I haven’t been around on the blog much, and when that happens, it means there are other things demanding a lot of my time. And amongst all that was going on, I really needed a quick break, so I decided to head to the Park Hyatt Hyderabad for a quick overnight trip last weekend, to check out the property as well as visit a city with great food. Given my schedule, I figured the best thing for me to do would be to arrive early in the morning and depart next afternoon giving me at least a full day in Hyderabad. As a Hyatt frequent guest, I really wanted to select a Hyatt property only, and I had heard lots…

Hyatt is out there pushing their business in India. They have done a couple of 50% off sales last year, and another promotion is now active to promote the Gold Passport program across the country.

Should Hyatt Regency Delhi make promotions they can’t keep?

Just this morning I wrote about a promotion the Hyatt has gone to town about, as a part of the Great Online Shopping Festival. It is a straightforward promotion, which asks to apply a coupon code, and you get 50% off rack rate. When I realised about this promotion yesterday, I started to look up rooms at the Hyatt Regency Delhi, for the benefit of some folks who really really wanted to stay about there. But, I run into this wall… I reached out to Hyatt Concierge on Twitter, who initially told me the hotel would contact me, but 22 hours later had not. When I reached out to them again, the hotel was only having blackout dates for those…

My experience in completing the Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond Challenge

Hyatt’s Gold Passport program is known to be one of the best loyalty recognition programs out there for hotel guests, and is the Kool Aid for miles and points bloggers such as yours truly. However, I’ve not held their Diamond Status for an extended period of time ever, largely because of my irregular stay patterns with respect to hotels. I’m not a lawyer or a consultant or a full-time blogger, so for me, I did not have a circumstance to do 25 stays or 50 nights to get the status. Hyatt also has another generous offer to get you to Diamond status however. They will allow you to enrol in the Hyatt Diamond Challenge, which grants you the Diamond status…

Hotel Review: Hyatt Regency Kolkata

A long weekend is an excuse to get out of town, and October 2-6 this year was one of those with a lot of holidays. With a lot of Bengali friends, I’ve heard great things about Kolkata during the Durga Puja season, and it was one of the things on my to do list. So, this year, it was a good time to make it happen. When I started to look for hotels, I eventually narrowed it down to the ITC Sonar or the Hyatt Regency, which are two hotels I’ve been wanting to go to for a while. Luckily for me, I spotted a very good deal at the Hyatt Regency Kolkata during the Monsoon Flash sale they held…
