Inside the Park Hyatt New York Studio King Suite

Outside of the Hyatt Residence Club properties, the Park Hyatt New York is one of only two top tier Category 7 Hyatt properties in the entire United States. Heck, there are only seven Category 7 non-Residence Club Hyatt properties open in the entire world, all of which are under the Park Hyatt brand. These are the top of the top, most expensive, and most luxurious Hyatts out there. Most of them would never be realistically attainable with cash for me…

Great Value and Location at SpringHill Suites Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole is not only a destination unto itself, but it is also a gateway to many outdoor adventures including easy access to national parks such as Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park. It’s gorgeous, it’s fun, it’s very well located, the people are friendly, it has great weather, and hotels can be quite expensive. When we unexpectedly got the chance for a short visit this week we jumped at it. Our flight on a private plane there might…

The Five Best Activities at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

When we decided to splurge this summer and stay at Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort we did it with the full intention of not just using the room as a place to lay our heads at night. Instead, the resort itself was to play an important role in our Disney vacation. From the lava pool, to the Kiki Tikis splash play area, to the character breakfast at ‘Ohana and more, we wanted to take the time to enjoy the amenities at Disney’s Polynesian.…

Why You Shouldn’t Stay at Disney’s Polynesian Resort

My very first trip to Walt Disney World was as a ten year old girl with my family. We did one big family Disney trip growing up where we drove to Orlando from Texas, played at Disney and the surrounding attractions for about a week, rode absolutely everything that existed at the time, and we stayed on Disney property at the then still pretty new Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. It was a grand trip, and until last week it was the…

A Look Inside the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar Club Lounge

A few days ago I spotted a post on the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar Facebook page that their Grand Club Lounge was now open. I had planned to write about it the next day since I know many of you have that resort on your destination wish lists, but when I went back the next day to reference the hotel’s Facebook post, it was gone. After messaging with the hotel it turns out I didn’t hallucinate the whole thing…which is…

Deciding Between Hyatt Lost Pines or Hyatt Hill Country Resorts

I don’t like deciding between two destinations as I think if you have narrowed the whole wide world down to two spots, odds are they are probably both worth visiting at some point. However, since I don’t think anyone has yet figured out how to visit two places at the same time, I totally get that ultimately you still have to pick one…or at least just one at a time.   Along those lines, two resorts that many Mommy Points…

5 Things to Know About Hyatt Hill Country Resort in San Antonio

With little kids, I can think of no easier and more enjoyable short weekend getaway destination than to head to a nice points-friendly resort. Everyone has their own favorite traveling style, but right now playing at a nice and family friendly resort for a few days is one of my favorite ways to go all-in on fun with my girls. Our typical go-to resort within driving distance is Hyatt Lost Pines near Austin, but since we hadn’t been to the…

5 Things to Know About the Grand Hyatt Atlanta Buckhead

While attending this fascinating conference about co-branded credit cards, I stayed for the first time at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta Buckhead where the conference was taking place. I know the hotel probably isn’t super high on the list of family vacation hotspots, so I won’t delve into an overly detailed review of the property, but instead I will share five things you should know about the Grand Hyatt Atlanta Buckhead in case you ever find yourself considering that property in the…

Favorite Things to Do at the Andaz Papagayo Costa Rica

Our much anticipated “no kids” trip to the Andaz Papagayo in Costa Rica couldn’t have come at a better time, and frankly, between the secluded but not-too-remote location, the points-friendlyslotting on the Hyatt award chart, and the reality that Costa Rica still gives a pretty good return for your dollar even at resorts, it offered us a superb value. I not only want to return to the Andaz Costa Rica at some point, but I actually already have some award nights…

Eating at the Andaz Papagayo Costa Rica and Beyond

If I had to list my three favorite things to do while traveling, there is no question that eating would make the cut for that top activities list…let’s be real, it may even hold the top spot. I love trying local foods, learning about different ways to prepare meals and drinks, and taking the time to sit and savor meals in exotic places. Now that absolutely does not happen to any large degree when traveling with my toddler, but since…
