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?

Because CX, KE, and SQ have Hermolis that means most are?

Agreed, but it's harder to do on the return, because you have to shlep it the whole trip.

Still worth it.
If I didn't from HNL I'd be eating a frozen chicken patty for a 10 hour flight that wasn't even double-wrapped.
