New United Budget Search Feature – Miles Man

I haven’t messed around with it at all but it seems like it could be a fun feature.  I do something similar with Google Flights from time to time.

The Hyatt Globalist Upgrade You Do Not Want – Travel on Point(s)

There are definitely times when view / location are much more important to me than room size.  It is strange that they wouldn’t just give Rick a standard room with a view versus the suite.  The thing that really got me was not offering breakfast in the restaurant.  I would reach out to Hyatt about that for sure.

  1. The Hyatt Lake Washington in Renton is cheap.
    I spoke to the front desk, and they confirmed that the $25 daily breakfast credit at the coffee shop is per room, not per guest. I asked if I checked in with my spouse and two kids, would the credit remain the same, to which they replied yes. so in essence I will be giving about $6 worth of breakfast credit per person. That is pitiful.

    • I would reach out to Hyatt via Twitter DM and let them know. They are breaking the terms of the program if the restaurant is open.
