Reminder: Hyatt 50000 GP Points Giveaway

I know everyone around here has been busy pondering about the flip flop that American Airlines made about fuel surcharges on the AAdvantage program for the past few hours. Turns out it was a false alarm, so maybe its time to get back to regular scheduled business. Just as a reminder, I had put in a giveaway for a total of 50,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points being given away by Hyatt a couple of days back. The Giveaway is to celebrate the upcoming New Possibilities promotion. You can head up to the original post to enter, and find out ways to get bonus entries as well. The giveaway is open for participation till Friday August 30, 2013. All the best!…

Go Goaah: Park Hyatt Goa Resort & Spa

Park Hyatt Goa Resort & Spa Alila Diwa, Goa June – September is the time of the year when I am inclined to take a vacation with friends in Goa. The peak Goa season is over in March (starts from October when all the tourists arrive!). The idea is to spend time with close friends and shut down my mental machinery for a few days, also the Goa weather in June-August is marvellous, with the rains. This time around, the destination was going to be the Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa, partly thanks to my Hyatt Diamond status last year. We were a bunch of six-eight friends who were going to be going over, so I booked three standard…

More disclosure from hotel front-desks please!

I am almost done with my trip to Chicago and San Francisco and on my way back to Mumbai (via Delhi), but I am groggy and sleepy as I write this. Reason? No, I did not go out and party in town, not that the foggy overcast weather of Chicago permitted me to last night. I was also not a spent force at the Bar 151. But one good deed from the Hyatt Regency Chicago did me in. So, i booked up my stay here a week to ten days back, and the hotel decided to put me up at the Junior Suite in the East Wing because of the Diamond status. Gracias, I said to them, although I wondered…
