Hyatt Will Not Honor Rsvs in CA properties from out of state travelers

I just received an e-mail from Hyatt stating that they will not honor reservations at all Hyatt properties in California from out-of-state residents except those who are considered "essential workers, are traveling to care for a vulnerable person, or who will stay for a minimum of 14 days". This is due to new restrictions imposed by the state due to COVID. I'm not sure how they will enforce any of this\.

I have a reservation for Saturday night this weekend, and I called the hotel to find out whether they would let me stay (I am a California resident). Hotel told me they would honor my reservation, but they were not accepting new reservations except for folks deemed essential. I guess this will be the norm for the next 3 weeks, at least.

Allowing in-state residents would be against the letter and spirit of the order they are trying to comply with here, which makes no distinction between non-essential travel from in-state vs out-of-state residents IIRC.

Couldn't an alternative headline simply be "Hotel follows law"?

Same email

I received the same notification from Hyatt.
My stay in LA was dec 10 to dec 11.
i work in financial services so CA seems to consider us as “essential workers”.

But this is not a business trip anyway.

The last minute cancellation sucks.

airBNB to the rescue!

I really sympathize with the properties trying to deal with the ever-changing governmental policies.

As a practical matter, there's no meaningful way to enforce the "essential worker" or "traveling to care for a vulnerable person" restrictions, at least not consistent with American cultural and political norms.

Also pretty hard to enforce the "resident" part, since there is no mandatory public state of resident registry in the US.

Because the bloggers say it's O.K. to travel! (sarcasm).
