In case you weren’t aware from reading my many posts about Hyatt and the Gold Passport program, Hyatt is my preferred program. I’m coming from a place where Hyatt hotels were not only plentiful, but offered a wide range of hotels with rates that could satisfy the most frugal traveler or the the most frivolous traveler.
But alas, those days are gone. There is a pretty big shortage of Hyatt hotels in the Pacific Northwest. The ones that are here are pretty nice but not at all easy on the budget. At the time of my move, I still needed about 12 stays to maintain Diamond status for next year. Well it’s been three months since I moved and now I need 10 stays. I think I’ve known this for awhile now but never really wanted to admit it, but it’s time to give up on elite status with Hyatt.
