• Hyatt Review: Hyatt Place Lake Buena Vista

    Review: Hyatt Place Lake Buena Vista

    I’ve stayed at a great many Hyatt Place properties at this point, and it’s rare for me to review them. That’s because they tend to be almost identical, which is entirely by design. Each room has the same pull-out couch with chaise lounge, the same wet bar with coffee maker, the same bed or beds, […]

  • Hyatt Review: Hyatt Regency Orlando Grand Cypress

    Review: Hyatt Regency Orlando Grand Cypress

    Image courtesy: Hyatt Hotels  Hyatt’s saturation of the Orlando market is so thorough that you can find two Hyatt Regency properties within a few miles of them. I’d stayed at the Hyatt Regency Orlando previously, but a bit farther down I-4, and a bit closer to Walt Disney World, one can find the Hyatt Regency […]

  • Hyatt Review: Excalibur Las Vegas

    Review: Excalibur Las Vegas

    Image courtesy: Hyatt Hotels  This review will be even shorter than my stay at Excalibur. 25 stays in one year is a tall order to hit, but that’s the requirement to earn top-tier status with Hyatt moving forward. With a huge adventure planned for next year – and plenty of additional trips liable to be […]

  • Hyatt Review: MGM Grand Executive Suite

    Review: MGM Grand Executive Suite

    Image courtesy: Hyatt Hotels  One of the key perks of top-tier Hyatt Gold Passport status that keeps me coming back is Hyatt’s partnership with MGM Resorts. By way of Diamond status with Hyatt, a status match gives me Mlife Platinum, which offers a bevy of great benefits when staying at an MGM property in Las […]

  • Hyatt Review: Delano at Mandalay Bay

    Review: Delano at Mandalay Bay

    Image courtesy: Hyatt Hotels  After heading on to Vegas from the Andaz West Hollywood, I headed straight for the Delano at Mandalay Bay. For Amex Platinum cardholders, the Delano might offer the best value in Las Vegas. Delano is part of the Fine Hotels and Resorts program, which offers free breakfast for up to two […]

  • Hyatt Review: Andaz West Hollywood

    Review: Andaz West Hollywood

    Image courtesy: Hyatt Hotels  While the vast majority of my hotel stays in recent years have been at Hyatt properties, thanks to the chain’s fantastic loyalty program and partnership with Chase’s Ultimate Rewards program, my stay in Los Angeles at the Andaz West Hollywood was the first time I’d stayed at an Andaz. Andaz is […]

  • Denver Review: Hyatt House Denver Airport

    Review: Hyatt House Denver Airport

    Image courtesy: Hyatt Hotels  This year’s Labor Day weekend was a whirlwind adventure, with daily visits to airports as we trekked across the country. Our first stop was in Denver for a friend’s wedding. We arrived mid-morning for the mid-afternoon ceremony, but would be heading on to Los Angeles the next morning, so staying close […]

  • Hyatt Review: Hyatt Regency Orlando

    Review: Hyatt Regency Orlando

    Image courtesy: Hyatt Hotels  On a recent trip to Orlando, I was able to stay for a night at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. A Category 4 property, an award stay would typically cost either 15,000 points or 7,500 points + $100 with the cash + points option. However, with rates hovering just a bit above […]

  • Cathay Pacific Review: Cathay Pacific Business Class CNS-HKG & HKG-LAX

    Review: Cathay Pacific Business Class CNS-HKG & HKG-LAX

    Image courtesy: InSapphoWeTrust  I love flying Cathay Pacific. Any opportunity to fly with the airline feels almost like Christmas morning. Cathay’s business class product isn’t the nicest way I’ve flown – that not would probably go to Fiji Airways, despite their seats not quite laying flat, or to Japan Airlines, for their stellar service and […]

  • Hong Kong Review: Hyatt Tsim Sha Tsui

    Review: Hyatt Tsim Sha Tsui

    Image courtesy: Hyatt Hotels  The Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui is located in a 64-story complex called The Masterpiece, in the heart of Kowloon in Hong Kong. A tower amidst a sea of towers – the 11th tallest in Hong Kong – this building is practically a city of its own, with a 6-floor shopping […]
