The Hyatt Place West London Hayes is one of two Hyatt properties in the vicinity of London Heathrow and it's the cheapest Hyatt property in the UK. I visited this property earlier in the year as part of a mattress run on my way to Hyatt Globalist status so what follows are some of the pictures I took during my stay and a few observations from my visit.
Hyatt got some very good press when, at the end of last month, it announced that all 19 of its resorts in Latin America and the Caribbean would offer free coronavirus testing for guests returning to the United States. Now Marriott appears to be joining in...albeit a little less wholeheartedly.
Best Western has just launched its first major promotion of 2021 and by Best Western standards it's pretty good. Members of the Best Western Rewards program can earn multiple gift cards and double points for stays made through 9 May 2021.
Amidst a variety of announcements that we've recently see Marriott making, one small bit of news appears to have slipped under the radar. Within the next few months, Marriott Bonvoy members will have a new Hawaiian property at which to burn their hard-earned points.
Marriott is running a new "Escape to Luxury" promotion in which it's offering guests up to $300 in credits on stays of 2-nights or more at some of its more luxurious properties in the Americas and the Caribbean. The one catch is that bookings must be made by this coming Sunday.
The Marriott Bonvoy app has been refreshed, redesigned, and been given a full makeover and while some of the changes may appear to be cosmetic, others include new booking options, better functionality, improvements to the search facility, and improvements to the way information is displayed. Here, in brief, is what's new in the refreshed Marriott Bonvoy app.
Marriott has today announced that it has entered into a deal with Blue Diamond Resorts to incorporate 19 of its all-inclusive resorts into its Autograph Collection portfolio. The resorts are spread across six destinations and will add almost 7,000 rooms to Marriott's current all-inclusive offering.
Hyatt is offering what it's calling a "The Great Relocate" rate at 125 of its properties spread across Europe, the Middle East, and India, and if you're prepared to book a stay of at least 29 nights at any of the participating locations, you could lock in some truly fantastic rates.
Amex has launched a new offer for stays at select Mandarin Oriental properties in the United States. As Amex offers go, this one is quite limiting but based on the cards that I have had it targeted to, it looks to be widely available so a lot of people should see it on one or more of their cards.
A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Marriott's plans to open almost 100 new Asia Pacific properties in 2021, and now we already have one of the properties featured in that article welcoming guests - the W Hotel Melbourne is officially open.
