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.
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.

The Thomson Hollywood opened its doors a little over two weeks ago so in between the meetings and endless zoom calls that seem to have taken over my life, I took the opportunity to take a walk to Hyatt's latest Los Angeles property to see what it was like.
Following rumors of a deal late last week, Sunday saw Hyatt confirm that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Apple Leisure Group, a luxury resort-management services, travel, and hospitality group for $2.7 billion.
I've just been checking for award availability at a Hyatt property in California and stumbled across a small but potentially significant anomaly that I didn't know about - it's possible for the Hyatt website to display no award availability for your chosen travel dates when the property that you'd like to stay at actually has rooms available for award bookings on the dates in question.
