Destination and Point of Origin: Asia

 

Our last post was about India, and in this one, China takes the spotlight. Globally, more than half the world’s population resides in Asia, and their economies, policies and trends are worth paying attention to. Sometimes as Americans we tend to have an insular point of view, but changes in the last fifty years in levels of personal and financial freedom have given rise to more mobility for millions across the continent, and the Chinese are no exception.

 

Who’s Traveling Where

 

In fact, China has overtaken Germany and the USA as the world’s biggest spenders on travel, with Chinese travelers spending $102 billion on international travel in 2012, an increase of over 40% on 2011.

 

Trends also reveal that most international travelers from China travel alone, rather than in groups, and that their destinations of choice include countries such as Australia, France, New Zealand, USA, Switzerland, the UK, and Canada. As such, these countries tourist and hotel industries are poised to gain much from the Chinese, most of whom travel for leisure over business.

 

The Impact

 

The big deal about these facts and figures is that travel and accommodation industries would do well to expand their marketing strategies to reach this rapidly growing population through online and social media channels. The big companies like Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton, Westin, and Wyndham already have some marketing strategies in place, but most have a long way to go in order to better capitalize on this exploding industry to adapt facilities and services to more extensively cater to the world’s largest market of travelers.

 

As big hoteliers rush to accommodate the influx of Chinese tourists, you may or may not notice some changes in your affiliations with them. Room prices may rise, given the increased demand, and timeshare owners or rewards members with the company may find their links to the companies more valuable in terms of savings and stability.

Hyatt History: Part 2

By | General Timeshare Information | No Comments

Consolidation: In 2004, all of the hospitality assets and corporations owned by the Pritzker family were consolidated into Global Hyatt Corporation. This created a hospitality company with a single balance sheet, a single organization and a single focus. Also in 2004 Hyatt acquired AmeriSuites—the upscale chain of all suites business class hotels. Rebranded as Hyatt Place these hotels are popular among traveling executives. Next acquiring Summerfield Suites and rebranding it as the extended stay hotel Hyatt House, Global Hyatt Corporation changed its name to Hyatt Hotels Corporation in On June 30, 2009, a name which it retains today.

 

Controversy: in August of 2009, some of the Boston properties encountered public outcry when they dismissed housekeeping staff in favor of outsourcing the work to a Georgia-based company.  The backlash resulted in the Job Assurance Program, which arranged for a new job with another employer for any employee who wanted one or job retraining at their previous Hyatt rate of pay, as well as extended healthcare benefits.

 

So What? The History of Hyatt is only half the story. A strong American-based company with a physical and economic legacy, Hyatt people and properties have witnessed first-hand many of the major world events of the last 50 years. A few examples are:

New York City – In May 2010, the Grand Hyatt near Grand Central Station in New York City was used as the conference center for the 2010 Model United Nations Conference, because of construction at the UN Headquarters, where it is usually held.

 

During Hurricane Katrina, the Hyatt Regency New Orleans received significant damage as almost all of its windows were blown out and the bottom floor was torn apart by flood damage. The hotel is located in the Central Business District and reopened October 19, 2011.

 

Australia – The 2006 G20 Meeting of Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors was held at the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne between November 18 and November 19, 2006.

 

Hyatt is an American company, and its Hyatt Residence Club properties are its timeshares in this corner of the accommodation industry. As I mentioned in my last post, Hyatt timeshares are one of the better option of vacation ownership due to their name, their service, their locations, and standards of care. Buying a Hyatt timeshare resale doesn’t have to be pressured, put you in debt, or leave you feeling helpless. In fact, PTR works hard to match up Hyatt timeshare resale buyers and sellers to negotiate the best price for both parties, so each are satisfied.

Hyatt History: Part 1

By | General Timeshare Information | No Comments

The school year is beginning all over the country and I realized our blog has been hard at play all summer. Attention, folks—time for a timeshare lesson!

 

Did you know that the international, multibillion dollar industry of hotels with the Hyatt name was actually founded by someone with the first  name “Hyatt?” Hyatt R. von Dehn  and Jack D. Crouch were the original entrepreneurs who began the business. When Hyatt—uh, Mr. von Dehn—wanted out, he sold his share to Jay Pritzker, who, interestingly, heard that the hotel was for sale while he was waiting in a coffee shop for a flight. He scribbled an amount of 2.2 million on a napkin and the deal was made and the Hyatt Corporation was born.

 

The Pritzker name might be familiar, as it is attached to one of the wealthiest families in America, being near the top of Forbes magazine’s “America’s Richest Families” list since the magazine began it in 1982. Especially in Chicago, where the family has its roots, public parks, universities, research centers for architecture, law, medicine, zoos, art galleries and military libraries all bear its name.

 

Jay Pritzker and Jack D. Crouch bought the Hyatt House motel adjacent to the Los Angeles International Airport in 1957. From there, the company expanded rapidly over the next decade, and it became publicly traded in 1962. In 1969, Hyatt opened its first overseas hotel, the Hyatt Regency Hong Kong. Hyatt has become known for its resorts after the opening of Hyatt Regency Maui in 1980. Today Hyatt has over 490 hotels worldwide, encompassing business suites, boutique hotels, timeshares, and extended stay lodging.

 

Because of the superiority of its business practices, locations, and accommodations, Hyatt timeshares are consistently in high demand on the resale market. This makes Hyatt timeshare resales a valuable sell and a better investment in the timeshare resale market than lesser-known properties. Check out some of what Premier Timeshare Resale has advertised for Hyatt timeshare resales now, or do an online search for Hyatt timeshares in your favorite vacation spot and gorge yourself on the beautiful photos.

Travel Spotlight: Seattle

By | Reviews to Share | No Comments

After a few days in Seattle, I’m realizing that this city pretty much has it all. Want a west-coast experience? Laid-back beaches abound. If you’re interested in the sea, the city offers an array of experiences like the free salmon ladder where you can watch fish swim upstream from the ocean one small waterfall at a time, and with docks and mariner’s museums, there’s enough here to hold your interest in oceanic matters for as long as your attention span. The city’s downtown area and Pioneer Market have a distinctly urban flavor with upscale shopping, art galleriers and public art installations, haute cuisine and brew-pubs, but to escape all that, a hidden free-to-the-public waterfall garden offers a welcome retreat. Even with the rain, the city is geared toward outdoor exploits, and city parks offer hiking trails through its verdant rainforest trees as well as children’s playgrounds. It’s easy to get around, and day-excursions can take you sailing, whale-watching, or to the nearby island where the quaint city of Victoria and its famous Butchart Gardens will charm you for several hours. As Washington state’s cultural capital and center of activity, the diversity in character and activity offering is astounding while naturally blending in to the social and geographical landscape.

 

Accommodations in the area vary from the affordable to the extravagant. From boutique hotels and exquisite and privately run inns and bed-and-breakfasts, Seattle also offers stays at trusted properties. The Seattle Marriott Waterfront (and several Marriott properties) provide the familiar Marriott guarantee for comfort and style. Hilton, Hyatt, Sheraton, and Westin all offer luxurious stays in fabulous locations for the traveler who wants to be in the middle of it all.

Though the pickings are slim for timeshare properties in Seattle, many abound in Washington state, where travelers can enjoy the cascade mountains and greenery that decks the hills of Washington’s coast year-round. Worldmark by Wyndham offers several properties alone, and Ocean Shores is a popular place for city dwellers to take a weekend away from the hubbub.

 

Summer is upon us, so especially if you have reward or trade points, don’t waste time and get yourself to this fabulous place that has so much to offer. (Just don’t forget your umbrella!)
