Haven't had the lounge in a while, and I doubt it comes back.

We love this resort, but I'm wondering how things are operating with CV-19 right now.

The buffet was a hit with my gang, but that is obviously out. How are they handling globalist breakfast now?...

Fifth largest metro-area, comparatively very few weather delays, center of oil and gas industry in the US, and a relatively central location.

I'd be shocked if they divested IAH.

As a spoiled globalist, I can normally check-in at 9am (especially with occupancy low across the board now), and early check-in is a published benefit at most HPs, so for a negligible amount more, I...

That is an amazingly insane reason to deny a BRG for an all-inclusive, since you know, it's an all-inclusive.

I cannot recall the exact terms of the reservation, but I think they were the same across the two websites.

If Hyatt denies the BRG, you can always just cancel the playa reservation.

Yep, worked for me in Cap Cana. The actual rate wasn't hugely less expensive, but the extra 20% was nice. My BRG was accepted within 12 hours.

The playa website seems to pretty consistently run...

I suspect there will be folks regaling very bored grandchildren about FFN happening along with G bonuses and Costco giftcards.

This thread prompted me to check prices around Houston for the next month or so.

They did for us. With the BRG, matched on total price for the 7-night stay from the playa website and then took the 20% off. I figured they would correct the price difference between the websites,...

Probably worth noting that the Escape Winter Sale on the Playa website is cheaper than the rates on the Hyatt website (maybe $50 difference depending on room), but Hyatt will match that rate and then...

You can always ask at check-in. If they know what they are doing (and that is not always the case), they have the flexibility to change the rate.

Despite this confusion, one nice thing about the Playa website is that their rates tend to be a tiny bit lower than the Hyatt website when they are having a "sale". So a quick Best Rate Guarantee...

Ziva (and probably Zilara)

The Resortsbyhyatt website pretty consistently has slightly lower rates than the regular hyatt website.

The actual price differences are negligible, but the 20% off the matching rate can easily...

This seems like an odd choice.

Were no promo announced, would you have made the stay?

It it is that huge, find a cheap HP/HH to squeeze in there beforehand.

Progress under the old versus new program

I do a Hawaii trip each January, typically with one other trip prior to that. In the past, I ended January with 10,000 out of the 100,000 miles needed for 1K.
