The Modern Guest Experience & How Hotels Can Achieve It in 2019 | By David Millili

Remember when the first hotel websites came online? It was 1994 and Hyatt was among the first chains to launch one. There were many years after this spent convincing the rest of the hotel world that they needed one, just a simple site that would describe the property with a few images. We weren't even at the stage of online booking, yet. That wouldn't come for another year or two. (Truth be told, some chains haven't evolved their websites much from that first iteration. Many still have th...

Empirical SCOTUS: Which Supreme Court cases are generating the most interest?

This Supreme Court term, like the past several before it, has been slow out of the gates. It also marks another term with a new justice – this time Justice Brett Kavanaugh. The justices often find consensus both early on in a term and after a largescale change, defining or redefining their jurisprudential boundaries only later. The justices have released five decisions in argued cases so far, all of them free even from concurrences. This is a new high count for unanimous decisions without a conc...

"If we had the California republic, which is something some people in California would like, it would have a lot of leverage over Nevada that it doesn’t have now, wouldn’t it?"

"Nevada would have to be careful about what it did to California. But the situation now is different because they’re states in the union."Said Justice Alito, at oral argument yesterday in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt (transcript). The case, discussed at SCOTUSblog, raises the question "Whether Nevada v. Hall, a 1979 Supreme Court ruling that said a state could be haled into another state’s courts without its consent, should be overruled."Arguing for the man who sued California in N...

Argument analysis: The familiar yet fresh debate in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt

Federal courts aficionados have been looking forward to the oral argument in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt, and the event did not disappoint. The question was whether to overrule the decades-old precedent Nevada v. Hall, which held that states lack sovereign immunity in one another’s courts. The argument largely broke down according to familiar ideological lines, but the discussion still had verve and creativity, in part thanks to the performances of veteran advocates Seth Waxman an...

A “view” from the courtroom: Comity Central

This term of the court has had plenty of arguably boring cases on statutory interpretation, pre-emption and procedure. But every now and then a low-key case comes along that results in an argument amounting to a heady constitutional seminar. Today’s lone case for argument, Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt, will be one of those. Seth P. Waxman for petitioner (Art Lien) When the court takes the bench, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is again absent as she recuperates from her recent lu...

Argument preview: Immunity, precedent and federalism in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt

Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt is the federal courts case that keeps on giving. It is a SCOTUS “threepeater,” having now reached the justices on three separate occasions. It raises a rich sovereign immunity issue — namely, whether states should enjoy immunity in one another’s courts. And it also asks the Supreme Court to overrule a precedent, Nevada v. Hall, that at least four justices were recently prepared to throw overboard. Whether new Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh f...

14 Things I Love About the Hyatt Visa

Hyatt re-launched their credit card in the middle of the year and I took my old one out of the sock drawer, quickly upgraded to the new version, and have worked to put about $30,000 spend on it this year. As a result I locked in my top tier elite status for the year despite doing my best to limit my travel, and I picked up a couple of free nights in addition to points in the process. Hyatt's points are the more valuable than other hotel chain points, and they're also the easiest to use to secu...

It's across the street from the Hyatt Olive 8 and near the Grand Hyatt, and is the largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest with over 1200 rooms. And it does not provide daily housekeeping.

History and future of minibars

High hotel minibar prices don’t surprise anyone anymore. Who among us has the energy to get worked up over $8 Cokes and $16 mini bottles of Johnnie Walker Black every hotel stay? Over the past half century, the minibar has gone from trendy new addition to regular hotel amenity to that box in the corner that’ll automatically charge you if you move the juice from its sensor pad. After years of minibar neglect, it feels like the time for the minibar is over. Travelers of the future will have to ...
