It was as far back as December 2020 that Hyatt let us know that it planned to add a number of properties to its European portfolio by the end of 2023 and it's one of the hotels mentioned in that announcement that has just opened its doors in southern Spain.
Hyatt has announced a new promotion, in conjunction with American Airlines, which sees it reprising an offer we last saw back in October of last year. Starting on 5 July, members of the American Airlines AAdvantage program will be able to earn a bonus of 1,000 AAdvantage miles per qualifying stay at over 150 participating Hyatt hotels in cities across the U.S.
Hyatt has announced a new "Private Sale" and the good news is that unlike the last Hyatt Private Sale that we saw, this one covers more than the EMEA region. This sale also includes the Asia Pacific region and the Americas. Better yet, properties in some regions are also offering dining discounts and complimentary breakfasts.
Unofficially, we've known this for some time, but Hyatt has now finally put out an official statement confirming that it will open the Hyatt Regency London Blackfriars in the City of London later this year.
The EMEA sale that some Hyatt properties were teasing last week is now live and covers stays at Hyatt properties in Europe, the Middle East, India, and Africa. Effectively, this is the same sale that we saw running last October only it covers a noticeably shorter stay period.
The Tommie Hollywood is the latest Hyatt property to open its doors in Los Angeles so as I'm currently back home on the West Coast and as the Tommie is only three weeks old, I took the opportunity to head over to Hollywood to see what the new property offers.
The Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill is my go-to property in central London and on my last visit I decided to take a couple of videos showing what the property offers. The first video in this post is of a Hyatt Regency Executive suite that I was upgraded into and the second is of the part-reopened Regency Lounge on the property's 8th floor.
Hyatt has launched a new sale in which it's offering up to 15% off rates at over 850 of its properties around the world and while the headline discount doesn't sound particularly impressive, the fact that it's is being offered on the already discounted rates that World of Hyatt members are given and not just on the standard rates, means that there could be some good savings to be had.
It was back in August that Hyatt confirmed that it has entered into an agreement to acquire the assets of Apple Leisure Group for $2.7 billion and we were told to expect the deal to close in the fourth quarter of this year. Well, true to its word, Hyatt has now announced that the deal is done and that approximately 100 new properties have now been added to its portfolio.
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.
