Mini Review: Hyatt Regency Oryx Doha

In the middle of a recent set of flights with Qatar Airways, I found myself (unexpectedly) staying at the Hyatt Regency Oryx Doha, and while the stay wasn't long enough for me to justify calling this report a 'full review', what you'll find in this article should be more than enough to let you know what the property is like and what it offers.

The Hyatt Place London City East deserves credit for choosing to be better

Hyatt Place and Hyatt House properties are usually functional rather than sexy and economical rather than indulgent, so it’s not altogether surprising that we don’t often hear anyone singing their praises. In this article, however, I’m going to make sure that one Hyatt Place gets the credit that it deserves.

A big issue that I have with Hyatt’s US expansion plans

Nowadays, an easy, almost lazy, way to criticise Hyatt is to complain about the size of its footprint compared to the large footprints enjoyed by Marriott, Hilton, and IHG. But that overlooks the fact that Hyatt has been working hard to add more and more properties to the World of Hyatt program, and that overall, it has been doing a pretty good job of expanding its footprint where it can.

Another annoying junk fee at the Andaz West Hollywood

Unlike quite a few posters over on Flyertalk, I don't have much of an issue with the Andaz West Hollywood as a property (we put friends up there on 'guest of honor' bookings reasonably frequently), but I've often railed against the ridiculous and indefensible destination fee that the property charges.

This isn't a full review of the Great Scotland Yard as the Covid restrictions that were around at the time didn't allow us to get a full feel for what the property has to offer, but the pictures and commentary that you'll find in this post should give you a good idea of what the Great Scotland Yard Hotel is like.

Yet Another New Los Angeles Hyatt Will Charge A Destination Fee

The property is now set to open its doors on 1 November 2021 but unless you have top-tier Globalist status or you're planning to use World of Hyatt points, you probably shouldn't be in too much of a rush to visit.

Be Careful. Another New Hyatt Will Charge You A “Destination Fee”

I’m a big fan of Hyatt and I make no apologies for believing that the World of Hyatt program is the best major hotel loyalty program around…and by some considerable difference. I am, however, getting more than a little tired of seeing an ever-increasing number of World of Hyatt properties charging guests inexcusable Resort/Destinations fees. It’s also very disappointing to see that a new Hyatt that’s soon to open in Los Angeles will be adding this rip-off fee to most guest’s folios.

Hyatt & SVC Reach Agreement – Only Five US Hyatt Properties To Disappear

At the beginning of January, it looked like Hyatt was going down a similar path to both Marriott and IHG as it entered into a dispute with an owner of 22 properties that were flagged under the Hyatt Place brand. At that point, it looked like Services Properties Trust was going to move control of its Hyatt Place properties to Sonesta, but following negotiations, it now seems that an agreement has been reached in the case of 17 of those 22 properties.

Is Hyatt About To Lose 22 Properties In The United States?

Two of the more interesting bits of fallout that we've seen from the current crisis have been IHG losing over 100 North American properties in August 2020 and Marriott losing 122 properties in North America in October 2020 and both of those events had one thing in common - the owner of the hotels. Now it looks like Hyatt may be going down a similar (if slightly different) road with the same owner.

Towards the end of August, Hyatt introduced its "Work From Hyatt" packages which it hopes will allow individuals, couples, and families to combine work and relaxation all in one place and away from the confines of home.

By the end of September, Hyatt had increased the number of participating properties to nearly 60 and now, as we enter November, there are almost 90 participating locations.

Amazing! Hyatt Has Actually Improved Its Best Rate Guarantee

There was a time where the best rate guarantees offered by the big hotel chains were a valuable tool in getting great deals but over the past few years most programs have watered down their guarantees to such an extent that they're not often worth very much (some don't seem to be worth anything at all).

Hyatt Adds Thompson Hotels To The World Of Hyatt (Bonus Points Available)

Over the past year Hyatt has been doing a good job of expanding the opportunities available to its World of Hyatt members by adding a significant number Small Luxury Hotel (SLH) properties to the list of hotels at which members can earn and burn Hyatt points....and now the expansion continues.

The Andaz West Hollywood Replied To My Post On Its ‘Destination Charge’…..And It’s Nonsense

Yesterday I published a post in which I shone a spotlight on the Andaz West Hollywood as I pointed out that the property has started charging guests a 'Destination Fee' of $23.10 per night on top of whatever nightly rate is on offer. As usual the post got sent out on Twitter but this time I also specifically sent a tweet to the Andaz West Hollywood (with a link to the post) to see if I could get the property to address the points I made.

Hyatt’s ‘Green Choice Program’ Is Just A Cheap Move

Over the weekend View From The Wing reported that a reader had noticed that Hyatt has started rolling out (or possibly just piloting) a scheme which rewards guests with World of Hyatt points if they choose to make a "Green Choice" and decline housekeeping services for one or more nights of their stay.

Another Hyatt Property Quietly Introduces A “Destination Fee”

The Andaz West Hollywood happens to be one of my favorite Hyatt hotels but I’m going to have to call the property out for what appears to be a very underhand and customer unfriendly move.

A New Park Hyatt For Los Angeles As Hyatt Announces 40 New West Coast...

Hyatt has always offered a pretty compelling loyalty program even if it has made qualifying for its top-tier status a monumental challenge for those of us who aren't road warriors. The problem with Hyatt has always been that its relatively small footprint makes it incredibly difficult to be loyal to the program as, in many locations, there simply isn't a Hyatt property at which to stay.

Hyatt Is Offering Bounties Of Up To $4,000 If You Can Hack Its Websites

Cyber crime is a thing we have to live with nowadays and announcements of major hacks seem to be getting more commonplace. The Equifax hack was probably the most publicised hack from the past 18  months but the recent admission by Marriott that details of up to 383 million guests were compromised makes the hotelier the victim of one of the largest hacks so far....and things won't stop there.

Hyatt Adds A New Property In Barcelona (And You Can Book It Now)

One of the biggest issues a lot of miles & points fans have with Hyatt is that it doesn't exactly have a large footprint of properties across the world. This makes it hard to be loyal to the chain (and earn status) and it means that World of Hyatt points are harder to use than the currencies issued by the other major hoteliers....but Hyatt is trying to do something about this.

The Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi Is Finally Open…..Sort Of

The Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi was already a full size structure when I visited Abu Dhabi in December 2015 and it was suggested at the time that it would be open in time for my next visit a year later. It wasn't. Now, seemingly ages after the hotel was first expected to open, the property has announced that it's finally accepting guests....but only in limited numbers.

Review: Andaz West Hollywood King Suite

A few weeks back Joanna, MJ and I spent six nights in a King Suite at the Andaz West Hollywood. It's a property I know quite well (having lived down the road from it for 5 years) and it's a property I've stayed at a few times in the past....but never with Joanna and MJ. I've already discussed why we booked the Andaz how much it cost in a previous post so I'll move straight on to the review.

6 Nights At The Andaz West Hollywood – Why I Booked, How I Booked...

As soon as Christmas was over Joanna, MJ and I headed back across the Atlantic to get some much-needed LA sunshine and to escape the European winter. We ended up flying with British Airways and booking the Andaz West Hollywood and, because I think it could be useful to others planning trips, I thought I'd share the details of why we booked what we did, how we went about booking and how much it all cost.
