• Hyatt Regency Collaborated With Fast Company and Inc. To Create Better Guest Experience

    POSTED September 11, 2016

In the second year of their campaign, ‘It’s Good Not To Be Home,’ Hyatt Regency teamed up with Fast Company and Inc. to elevate their hotel experience. The collaboration allows travelers to participate through social media, and share why ‘It’s Good Not To Be Home.’ Using #HyattRegencyContest, guests can share creative ways to improve the Hyatt guest experience. At the end of the contest, two winners will be selected and given the chance to bring their visions to life, with the help of personal trainer Gunnar Peterson, and pastry chef/cronut creator Dominique Ansel.

“We’re excited to debut the latest extension of the campaign with Fast Company and Inc. to delve even deeper into why it’s good not to be home and to discover new ideas for making the business travel experience even better with the help of some of today’s most creative entrepreneurs,” says Sandra Cordova Micek, senior vice president of global brands at Hyatt. “We can’t wait to hear about the hotel innovations these travelers and entrepreneurs come up with and how we might help make them a reality at Hyatt Regency locations around the world.”

Hyatt Regency has more than 168 locations in 30 different countries, and strives to connect with travelers. As a part of their mission to remind travelers that ‘It’s Good Not To Be Home,’ the hotel will offer special activities and events through October 14.

“The care our colleagues provide allows our guests to enjoy time away from home,” says Cordova Micek. “By delighting our guests through a series of special offerings and amenities, Hyatt Regency hotels are creating fun and clever ways to show them how great life can be on the road.”

The contest winners will be revealed at the end of November. Along with a chance to implement their ideas to the hotel, the winners will also receive 60,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points, Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond Membership for one year, VIP invites to an event in November and a two-night stay in the hotel

After several months of renovations, the DoubleTree by Hilton Philadelphia-Valley Forge is now open as the Alloy – King of Prussia, a DoubleTree by Hilton.


After almost 20 years of vacancy, the Cook County Hospital in Chicago will be put to use once again. A $150 million adaptive reuse project restored the historic, 106-year-old hospital, which has become a combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel, as well as medical offices, a museum, a food hall and more. While the opening is multi-phased, the hotels are scheduled to open in late July.  


Doctors, nurses, grocery store employees and more were essential to sustaining the continued stay-at-home orders that helped fight the spread of COVID-19. Such workers put their health at risk for the benefit of society, and Nakoma Resort and the Lost Sierra Chamber of Commerce want to recognize them for their efforts through the “Send Your Heroes” campaign.
