Right, gift cards wouldn't work, but gift checks would work.

I assume this would work for upgrade fees. Are the transfer fees charged thru Hyatt?

You guys should know... I love travel, miles, hacks etc... I love helping my friends out with their travel arrangements. But...

1)I can't go on vacation with my kids, period.
2)My wife hates leaving our kids behind.

Taking this 2 factors in consideration.. This will probably be a once in a lifetime.. At least for the next few years I don't plan on taking another vacation like this.

excited for you, will we get a report with photos?

Because it's a Days Inn compared to the other places being discussed here.

Please elaborate. You've been told a certain room number, and you want to see which one it is?

Also, which hotel?
