A normally very reliable source has reported that an IHG property in the center of the City of London which has remained closed since the pandemic first brought life to a screeching halt, will reopen early next year. It won't, however, be reopening under its old name. Instead, it will reopen as a new Hyatt Regency.
Earlier in the year (further back than I care to admit), Joanna and enjoyed a short break at Hyatt's newest central London property, the Great Scotland Yard Hotel, and what you'll find below are a few comments about the property and quite a few pictures. 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.
Hyatt has just announced a new promotion in conjunction with American Airlines in which all members of American's frequent flyer program can earn a bonus of 1,000 AAdvantage miles per qualifying stay at over 190 participating Hyatt hotels in cities across the U.S. this winter.
In early September, Hyatt announced that it would be adding six new European properties to its portfolio with two of those properties opening their doors to guests as early as this month. The Tribune Hotel in Rome opened just a few days ago (with no fanfare at all) and now Hyatt has confirmed that the IL Tornabuoni Hotel in Florence is accepting bookings as well.
The EMEA sale that some Hyatt properties were teasing last Friday is now live and as suspected, it involves more than just the Andaz brand. The sale covers stays at Hyatt properties in Europe, the Middle East, India, and Africa and appears to come pretty close to replicating a sale that we saw back in May of this year.
Hyatt is the only one of the major hoteliers yet to announce a promotion for the final months of the year but with the holiday season careering towards us, it looks like at least one of Hyatt's brands will be launching a sale in the coming days.
The Shay, A Destination Hotel in Culver City, California, was originally slated to open in late summer 2020 but as with most hotel openings scheduled for 2020, that date was pushed back into 2021. 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.
Chase has been running numerous offers for Hyatt stays over the past year but despite the fact that I hold the World of Hyatt Credit Card (which Chase issues), I've been overlooked on most occasions. This time around things are different (finally!) and I'm currently seeing two good Hyatt offers on two separate Chase cards.
Hyatt is back with another announcement featuring new properties that it will be adding to its portfolio and as has been the case in a number of the hotelier's recent statements, the new properties will all be located in Europe.
A look at one of the suites that World of Hyatt Globalist members may be upgraded into if they use a suite upgrade award or if they're lucky enough to get a complimentary suite upgrade when they stay at the Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill.
