Wow, that was fast!
Yesterday, the Hyatt Place Long Island City was listed as a Category 2 Hyatt hotel. Consistent with that, award stays were available for 8,000 World of Hyatt points. (see this POST).
This morning, there was still some award availability at 8,000 points.
Well guess what?
It looks like all point bookings have now been blocked.
More interestingly, the Hyatt Place Long Island City has now vanished from the list of New York Category 2 hotels! All I see is this:
- Hyatt Place Buffalo/Amherst
- Hyatt Place Saratoga/Malta
- Hyatt Regency Buffalo / Hotel and Conference Center
- Hyatt Regency Long Island
- Hyatt Regency Rochester
What happened to the Hyatt Place Long Island City?
In fact, I checked every category and the Hyatt Place Long Island City is presently MIA from the category list.
Let’s take a poll – What category do you think it will be re-categorized as?
I’ll say Category 4. . . .
For those who might think I killed the deal – please know this. I’ve been watching this hotel for a while and I saw various significant changes in the last few days that lead me to believe that a change was imminent. I blogged it so people could get in on booking the hotel before the changes happened.
