I TRIED TO LIKE HYATT, BUT IT’S NOT WORKING – YMMV
If you don’t go to city centers then Hyatt probably isn’t the best program for you for sure. They have been adding hotels like gangbusters, and the footprint is a ton better than it was, but it is still way behind Hilton, Marriott and IHG. Especially in rural areas. It was a part of the reason I thought a Hyatt / SPG merger would have made the most sense.
