Hyatt used to be promotion crazy, but lately they are dead silent. I have a ton of stays coming up and I’d like to book with Hyatt, but the dearth of solid promos has me scratching my head.

I even called Hyatt today to try and get any information out of their phone reps (which has worked in the past), yet none of them have a clue. Which leads me to believe that Hyatt may be on a somewhat long-term promotion break, which is disappointing. They’ve alluded to a March promo on their Facebook account, but usually word leaks out prior because phone reps and hotels are sent the promotion details before they are announced. Either Hyatt is getting better at keeping promotions under wraps, or they may not have one- at least not for early March (I’m hoping the former).

On one hand, I can see how they might have a point “hangover” from running several robust promotions in 2010. While I wish they’d bring back Faster Free Nights, I know that might be unrealistic and just hope they run something.

In any case, I’m not holding my breath, but I am crossing my fingers for a Hyatt announcement by March 1, 2011. If you have any inside scoop or simple insight, feel free to comment below.
