Andaz Wall Street: A City Asleep

When you think Wall Street, you think Gordon Gecko. I always wanted to work on Wall Street but that 19/100 in Calculus 115 forced me to become an economics major at the University of...

Hyatt Place Houston Bush Airport: Waiting on SQ Flight

It's a Hyatt Place. I've stayed at enough of them at this point to know what I'm getting myself into. The room is spacious, the bed is comfortable, but the soaps, cleverly named 1-2-3, are nothing special.

Hyatt Place Detroit Auburn Hills: It’s Not In Detroit

I'm from Michigan so I know that Auburn Hills is not near Detroit. Downtown Detroit is forty-five minutes away. The closest affiliation Auburn Hills has with Detroit is my beloved Pistons who, incidentally, are leaving Auburn Hills for Detroit next year.

Hyatt Place Cleveland Crocker Park: Another American Strip Mall

I'll keep this hotel review short and sweet. On the way to see Michigan beat the Buckeyes by stopping them short of the line to gain, I had Thanksgiving in Cleveland. This review is out of order because it's yet another Hyatt Place review in my quest to requalify for Diamond.

Hyatt Herald Square: Right Price, Great Location

Sometimes it's nice to pretend to be able to afford the New York lifestyle. Stays at the overrated Park Hyatt NYC are not feasible whether they be on points or a combo of cash and the former. A more enticing alternative is to stay at the Hyatt Herald Square in Midtown Manhattan.

Hyatt Regency O’Hare: The Best Airport Hotel

Chicago is an amazing city. First I detailed where to go for Sunday Funday. Then I wrote about the delicious Chicago deep dish. From there I recommended two excellent hotels, the Radisson Blu Aqua, and the Waldorf Astoria Chicago.

Andaz Xintiandi Shanghai: The Beautiful Boutique

The cosmopolitan life is what the Andaz brand is all about. It's what the W brand aspires to be but will never become. The Andaz Shanghai combines the best of all worlds by delivering an upscale experience in a great neighborhood.

The Grand Hyatt Shanghai: PH’s Not So Little Brother

The Grand Hyatt Shanghai must get sick of living in the shadow his younger brother, the Park Hyatt. That is literally the case here as the size and stature of the Grand Hyatt which is in the Jin Mao building is dwarfed by the Park Hyatt which is in the World Financial Center.

Park Hyatt New York: Consistently Inconsistent

New York is the home to real talk, the idea that people should speak their minds directly without pussyfooting around. TPOL also adheres to this ideology leaving him in situations when keeping it real goes wrong. In reviewing the Park Hyatt NY, I'm going to be brutally honest even if this upsets the blog community which, for the most part, holds this hotel in the highest regard.

Hyatt Sharm el-Sheikh: Beautiful Hotel, Terrible Time

Hyatt Regency Sharm el-Sheikh Review: The original plan was to run the Athens Marathon then go straight to Sharm for R&R. Then the plan changed to go to Cairo and Luxor and end the trip in Sharm.
