Peek at the Best 15,000 Hyatt Points I’ve Spent


My daughter and recently I snuck off without the one year old and dad to Park City for the weekend, and while it was super tough to leave home for the first time without the littlest, being here has been incredible. So incredible there hasn’t been much time for blogging…which I think is the sign of a good trip. Well, there’s that and even my fingers are beyond exhausted from serious skiing! While I will keep it short today, I wanted…

World of Hyatt to Offer Immersive Experiences and More

World of Hyatt Image.jpg

We have already learned a fair amount about what the new World of Hyatt program will look like when it launches on March 1st including details surrounding the four new elite tiers and benefits, the co-branded credit card features, the impact on the M life relationship, and more. However, while those are very important pillars of the program, those pieces by themselves aren’t the full scope of what the World of Hyatt will offer. When I met with the folks from Hyatt…

Why You Should Link Hyatt Status to M life Now!


One cool perk of having some level of Hyatt Gold Passport status is that you can match it to M life status for some perks and savings in Las Vegas and casinos such as MGM, Mandalay Bay, Bellagio, Aria, Luxor, Mirage, and beyond. This relationship has been in place for a few years now, but it is about to undergo a pretty big change when the new World of Hyatt program takes over in a little over a week. The Hyatt…

Hyatt Lost Pines Pool Upgrade Sneak Peek

Hyatt Pool

One of my very favorite resorts, Hyatt Lost Pines, has a great pool complex complete with a lazy river, water slide, beach area, and more that we try to visit at least once a summer. Over the past several years we have had the joy of staying there more times than I can easily count, and I have even written posts like “The Secrets of Staying at Lost Pines” since I am such a big fan and repeat customer…usually on points.…

Booking Award Stays at Hyatt Ziva All-Inclusives With Children Two and Under

Babies are free at the Hyatt Ziva Resorts

I am a very, very big fan of the all-inclusive Hyatt properties. I’m not a typical all-you-can-eat-and-drink girl just for the heck of it, so my expectations going into an all-inclusive situation were tempered. However, the Hyatt Ziva Cancun was everything my family wanted from a beach vacation and more. It has almost been a year since our stay and I seriously can’t wait to find an excuse to get back there. The one downside to a family stay at a…

Hyatt Place Coming to Keystone, Colorado!

The Inn at Keystone

I know many families that love to ski, but very few that love the high price tags that can come along with Colorado ski vacations. Miles and points + some other money saving tips can make a family ski vacation much more doable, but there are several ski resorts and communities that simply don’t have any chain hotels available, or at least not any that are convenient to the slopes. One such resort community that I love for families, but…

Grand Hyatt Baha Mar in Bahamas May Finally Actually Open?

Grand Hyatt Baha Mar has a potential new opening date

A few years ago lots of us were pretty excited that Hyatt was going to have a large resort hotel in the Bahamas as part of the massive Baha Mar resort complex. For a while you could even book rooms for just 15,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points per night! However, lots of problems with the larger complex occurred before the doors ever opened including bankruptcy and more. The opening date was pushed back, and then stalled progress altogether in about 2015. Since…

Not Too Late to Use Points to Stay in DC This Weekend

It is the day we take off from one White House to the next. We saw the impressive #marineone in #dc over the weekend and now we get to see this country choose its next destination. May we all choose wisely. #govote

As I am sure everyone knows, the 45th President of the United States will be sworn in tomorrow in Washington DC. No doubt, an inauguration is a big event for DC every four years. It is certainly a time when you could expect hotel rates to be well above their normal thresholds due to high demand from those wanting to attend the inauguration, those who work supporting the inauguration behind the scenes, or even those peacefully protesting. I am always fascinated by…

The Best Reason to Mattress Run for Hyatt Globalist Status!

Enjoy suite upgrades with Globalist status

Right after Hyatt Gold Passport announced their big changes for the program that kick in on March 1, 2017 with the introduction of the new “World of Hyatt” program, I outlined a way to earn top tier Hyatt Globalist status until February 2019 if you complete 25 eligible stays in January and February 2017 before the new rules take effect. Depending on how inexpensively you can get the stays you need, and how much value you will get out of…

New Opening Date for Park Hyatt St. Kitts

Park Hyatt St. Kitts

Construction and grand opening delays are seemingly the norm for big hotel projects, and if you add a remote island location to the mix, delays seem to be all but guaranteed. It comes as little to no surprise that the much anticipated Park Hyatt St. Kitts has suffered another opening delay from spring 2017 to potentially summer 2017. The first date they are taking reservations is now very late June 2017. You can make reservations using Hyatt Gold Passport points or…
