Include hotels on itineraries

Obviously I might make an exception if I was attending an FT Do but don't think I'd regularly post so much of my travels plans for anyone to see but again that's just MHO and YMMV.

One member is already running a hotel meeting thread in Hyatt where people disclose their Hyatt hotel stays. This seems adequate to me.

They also have that in Hilton & Marriott forums.

Cheers.

I agree on this, and it could definately be a concern. However scattered around in the different forums people do post also hotel stays.

I do think however that the usage would increase with a combined effort including hotelstays, making it all more userfriendly.

Of course there's the other issue of who actually goes to itineraries. I've been on FT for years & rarely go there.

Yeah I know it's there, but 99.9% of the time I forget it exists & so don't look there. My bad. I just check the airline lounge thread in my particular airline & the hotel stay thread in my particular hotel chains, and I check CommunityBuzz.

Cheers.

Isn't the issue here that you know which hotel you are staying in and so just want to see if other FTs are staying there too?

Absolutely. But despite posting and searching numerous times, theres never been a match. So with more users, and a more readable version I would for one use it.

I think its obvious at least some users at all forums use this, and is there a will to improve the feature?

Enjoyed visiting this sub-forum, with feedback from several seniors.

I think pretty much everyone who visits a Hyatt read the Hyatt board before they go - especially if they want a review of the property. Whether they then choose to post in the visits thread is another matter.

Based on this thread, in comparison to other threads in this forum, I don't see this to be a burning issue at the moment.

I'm not opposed to it, but I don't really see the value in it either.

I don't fully see the value (other than to show where folks are going) in the Itineraries forum either, to be honest.

I've got the same outlook as Sharon does in post #7.
