Because Two is Better Than One

Last year you may (or may not) remember that I participated in Hyatt’s The Big Welcome campaign and received a free night at the Hyatt. I also got to give away a free night at the Hyatt to five lucky readers.

Well, guess what?  I was recently asked if I would like to be a part of the new Hyatt Insider blogger program.

Huh.  Would I ever!

Guess what that means?  That means more opportunities for me, and for you, to stay at the Hyatt’s fabulous hotels and resorts throughout the year FOR FREE.  I don’t know about you, but I’m all about the free.  And I really love campaigns like this one that allow me to share my perks with my readers.

Since there’s no time like the present, I’ve already received 2 (that’s TWO) free Big Welcome Back award nights which we are planning to use next weekend at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina down on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.


This will be an early 15-year anniversary trip.  FIFTEEN YEARS of marriage, y’all.  I guess I’m officially a grownup now.  (Our anniversary isn’t till August, but this month worked out best for our busy summer schedule.)

I spent a few days perusing the various Hyatt sites within driving distance of Philly, trying to decide where to go.  I really wanted to go somewhere that is a destination in and of itself, rather than a Hyatt in the middle of a city or a tourist destination.  We just want a place where we can relax and hang out and eat good food, so when I discovered this resort, I decided it was perfect.

I hope the weather’s nice enough to sit by the pool and sip a mojito, but if not, it looks like there are plenty of lovely places to sit indoors.  Like, here perhaps.  I have a stack of books to bring that I’ve been trying to read, and I may even pick up a new knitting project before we go.  I’m looking forward to just relaxing.  We MIGHT even try out the spa while we’re there, since this IS our 15th anniversary trip, after all.

We still have to decide where we’re going to eat.  I was told to make reservations in advance, and we’re leaving in 10 days, so I need to be figuring that out.  Suggestions?  Has anyone been there?

Of course, an anniversary trip to a beach resort calls for some new duds, wouldn’t you agree?  And it just so happens that last weekend I attended a CAbi party.  I totally splurged on a colorful silk tank top that should be perfect for an evening out at the beach.  I wonder if I can find it online.  Oh here, you go. (Click on Bright On, and it’s the Cosmo Tunic.)

I know. It pretty much broke the bank, but isn’t there a rule that states that you can’t go to one of these home parties and not buy something?  (That’s what I told my husband, anyway.)  Really, hon, I was just being polite.

And of course, one of Murphy’s Laws clearly states that when you go to one of said parties, you will fall in love with the most expensive item there.  What, that doesn’t happen to you? I suppose it’s one of my many talents.

Anyway, I fell in love with that top the second I saw it, and even though I tried on probably half the tops she had in stock, I knew the Cosmo Tunic was “the one.”  Just picture it — a romantic dinner by the ocean, sipping a crisp Chardonnay, feasting on fresh seafood, no little ones interrupting our conversation…  I can’t wait.

I’ll be sure to take more than my fair share of photographs while we’re there so I can fill you in when we get back.  It will be the next best thing to being there.  Of course, that would be weird.  If you were there, I mean.  Pictures are better.

Any-WHO.  In addition to my own 2 free Big Welcome Back award nights, I get to give away 2 sets of 2 free Big Welcome Back award nights that can be used at any Hyatt in the world. They will expire on August 30, 2011 so you’ll want to be able to use them soon.

To enter, just tell me which Hyatt you’d like to stay at (don’t worry; you don’t have to commit.  You can change your mind if you win.)  I will randomly select 2 winners on Friday, May 14. If you win, you will need to register for a Hyatt Gold Passport account, and the two free nights will be awarded to your account.  This contest is open to anyone anywhere in the world.

Disclosure: As a member of the Hyatt Insider blogger program, I was provided with a points upgrade to elite Platinum Gold Passport status and 2 free Big Welcome Back award nights to use at my leisure, plus 2 sets of 2 free Big Welcome Back award nights for my readers.


  1. says

    What a wonderful giveaway! Beautiful tank! Even if I don’t win, this was a nice way to start a Wed morning. I would choose the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa in San Antonio, TX. My husband & I are coming up on 23 yrs July 4…

  2. says

    Awesome give away! Our anniversary is in August, too. We are the 5th, and we will be married for 15 years also.

    Now, which one to pick. :-)

  3. says

    I would choose the Hyatt Place Dallas/Park Central in July. I will be hosting my mother’s 65th birthday party at a Mexican restaurant near that location!

  4. Rachel Whitt says

    I would love to stay at the Park Hyatt Washington in D.C. Your description of sipping wine by the ocean makes me ACHE for a vacation!

  5. Amy says

    I would love to stay at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa, but getting there may be a little much :) But I will dream to make it there.

  6. Laurie says

    I’d choose the Grand Hyatt Atlanta/Buckhead. There’s several neat restaurants and shops that I’d love to check out and it’s about an hour away from us. It would be a fun weekend get-away!

  7. says

    All right. I choose the Grand Hyatt in New York. It is close enough to drive, and besides, I love the city in the spring!

  8. says

    I absolutely LOVE that tank! Great choice ~ it will look great with your dark hair!

    If I were to win the Big Welcome Back award nights, I would have to choose the Hyatt Regency Long Island. I have a friend who is from Long Island, so it would be fun to meet up with her.

    Keeping my fingers crossed!

  9. Holly says

    I would love to stay at the Hyatt Regency Savannah. My anniversary is at the end August, and we honeymooned in Savannah. It would be awesome to go back!

  10. says

    Oh wow! Such a great giveaway!
    Congrats on 15 years! What did you get married when you were 10? 😉

    We celebrate 10 years in January, and are planning a trip. I’d love to see Hawaii-and this would certainly help with the expenses so I’m copycatting Amy, we’d love to stay at Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa.

  11. Rachel says

    In a perfect world, I would choose the Hyatt in Milan, Italy (but we’d probably have to stick around closer to where we live… :) My husband and I just celebrated our 4th anniversary but were unable to do anything or go anywhere because we just had our second baby boy, so this would the perfect belated anniversary celebration :)

  12. Stacey V says

    Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina or one of the Hyatt’s in Washington DC since I have never been there. We’d probably have to take our two kids, but it would still be fun since they have never stayed in a Hotel.

    Happy Anniversary. Our 11th is this Satruday.

  13. alyssa says

    My anniversary is May 10th (9 years) and it always gets the short end of the deal because of Mother’s Day. I would love to stay right at the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland also. I love the Chesapeake it is so beautiful. I hope you have a great time!

  14. says

    Oh my. Please hold while I go see if there’s one at Disneyland, because we are trying to swing a trip to LA this summer but it’s looking painfully pricey. Yep, Hyatt Regency in Orange County…

  15. says

    first of all, I LOVE your blog. I really enjoy your insight!

    what an awesome giveaway (that I will never win)!!!!!!! If I did win, I would totally choose Savannah or San Diego. both places I want to go. It would be the perfect pregnancy trip – due with #2 in a few months. :)

  16. says

    I love Hyatts…I’ve stayed at a bunch and they’re always nice. For my wedding I stayed at the one on Penn’s Landing and they were great. I don’t know which one I’d pick…maybe the one on the Riverwalk in San Antonio, it looks right over the Alamo.
    Thanks for the chance!

  17. says

    What a wonderful giveaway! If I won, I would choose the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina as well because it is close to home, yet far enough away to feel like a small vacation. During the first week of July, my husband and I will celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary and our little boy will turn 5, so a family getaway would be a wonderful way to celebrate and enjoy each other!

  18. says

    I would stay in the Hyatt in NYC… it is beautiful and in such a lovely spot!
    The Hyatt on the Chesapeake is lovely and very close to my grandparents home, which we love!

  19. Dana says

    I think I would choose the Hyatt Regency Dallas. I would arrange to meet my best friend there and we would have a fun girly weekend of shopping, dining and spa treatments!

  20. says

    I would love to spend a summer weekend in the Colorado Mountains with my husband- I’d choose the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa. Maybe once we go I can convience him to take me back in the winter for skiing!

  21. says

    The one in Maryland looks pretty fantastic – can’t wait to hear how you like it! On a beach and with a spa – sounds like the perfect destination for my 3 year wedding anniversary and hopefully our last vacation before kiddos! :)

  22. Heidi says

    The Andaz in San Diego, Ca.

    My mom will be ending her last day of chemo soon. I would love for her to relax after this corageos battle.

  23. says

    We are going on a big roadtrip this fall- from PA to TX and back. This would be great to use along the way- I know we’re going to pass a SLEW of Hyatts!


  24. Domestic Me says

    OMW! Loved the one you stayed at in Maryland; but I would also love to stay at Highlands Inn in Carmel, CA. It looks so relaxing.

    Congrats on your upcoming 15th anniversary. Hubby and I just celebrated our 13th in March.

  25. says

    Our 5th anniv is this fall, and with two kids under two, getting away seems tough to do! We would stay local, so prob phila @ penns landing would work! great dining and yet close to the babysitters aka grandpop and nanny, if need be! Excellent giveaway!

  26. says

    I would take the Chesapeake Bay – maybe we’ll see you there! Please let me win! I really need this – we’re celebrating 7 years this year – and have never had a vacation for just the 2 of us since our honeymoon! (vacations with my parents and/or the in-laws are fun – but they just don’t count!)

  27. Leah F says

    I would choose the Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio. My husband and I have been talking about taking a trip and leaving the kids with MiMi and PawPaw. This would be the perfect opportunity!

  28. DeAnn says

    Wow…dreaming, I would love to stay at the Hyatt in Milan, Italy also. Otherwise Huntington Beach, CA would be lovely…really that’s dreaming too, but since I’m choosing a Hyatt instead of doing laundry right now, I’m going to at least make it count!

    My friend used to have CAbi parties all of the time. I wasn’t crazy about everything but I always managed to find a couple of wonderful pieces. You can justify the price with the quality. :) Everything I’ve purchased from that company has held up very well. May is a great time for the Eastern Shore…warm enough to enjoy outside but not unbearably humid (it would be that way in Aug.) Have a great trip!

  29. julie says

    I have been promising Big a night in NYC since middle and little got to go this winter so i’d be all over a hyatt in NYC. we’re celebrating our 10 year at a bread & breakfast in Maine in July. Any suggestions?

  30. Karen says

    I would choose any of the Hyatt’s in New York City because it’s time for The Midge to see the Big Apple.

  31. Michelle@Life with Three says

    I’d love to take a weekend trip to Charleston with my husband. We’re relatively close, but I’ve never been there. Thanks for the chance to win!

  32. Christa says

    What fun! Normally I would have for sure said NYC but when you said you could pick anywhere I would have to choose the Hyatt Regency Thessaloniki. I’ve always wanted to go to Greece and it just looks beautiful.

  33. says

    I would have to pick one of the NYC locations, I just can’t decide which one for sure though! They all look amazing!

  34. says

    What an amazing giveaway! I would stay at the downtown Seattle Hyatt when we go home to visit family, it would be such a treat to stay there instead of the usual cramming on the couch!
    Have a great trip with your hubby!

  35. Annette says

    Of course I’d pick any Hyatt anywhere in Hawaii for my first choice, but realistically, I know I’ll have my two young ‘uns in tow and a FULL schedule to work around, so I’ll go with the Hyatt in Baltimore or DC or NYC…fun and do-able spots without having to shell out airfare!

  36. Rachel says

    well, if I could pick ANYwhere, I’d pick Grand Hyatt Bali. haha.
    Chesapeake would be more realistic, though.
    thanks for the giveaway!

  37. Rachel says

    I just need a relaxing weekend away, anywhere with good weather and pretty! I live in Boston and there is a Hyatt nearby – and even that would be perfect, just enough to get out of the house and relax for a weekend.

  38. says

    I would love to stay at the Hyatt in Hawaii, but w/ a toddler that plane ride would be a little too long and I def couldn’t leave her at home for that long. I think I would choose the Hyatt in Newport, RI as we could (maybe) do a weekend getaway there w/o my little one since it’s a close drive for us or we could bring her (most likely) and still do things we’d all enjoy together.

    Thank you for this contest opportunity! Hope you and your hubby have a very special anniversary! :)

  39. Tina says

    Congrats on your upcoming anniversary !!I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip. My husband and I will be celebrating 25 years in July !! I would choose The Grand Hyatt in New York City. In college, we took a trip to New York with two of our instructors and class members. It would be great to go back there and celebrate our 25 years of marriage !!! :-)

  40. says

    I would pick St. Louis. It’s within reasonable driving distance, and we’ve been wanting to go back there for a while.

  41. Emily E says

    Well, we were supposed to go to the Opryland Hotel for our anniversary, since that’s where we went for our honeymoon. But that’s not going to happen anytime soon. :( So, if I won, we’d probably go to the Hyatt Place Nashville/Franklin/Cool Springs instead.

  42. says

    Its our 15th as well and my husband is laid off – so alas, we can’t go anywhere. I would love love to win this and take him downtown Chicago to the Hyatt Regency right in the heart of the city.

  43. Tanya says

    Hyatt Hill Country Resort in San Antonio, Texas! The Military is moving us out of San Antonio (my home!) this summer and I would LOVE to spend one of our last weekends here in style! Thanks for the chance!

  44. says

    So…. you’re giving this away on the 14th and I just happened to be getting married on the 16th…. and well, right now? we’re spending the night in the new house… just the two of us… but a room at the hyatt in Roanoke? That would be fantastic…

    OR…. how about the one in Fairfax in July when we go up to DC with a bloggy friend who’s flying in from CAlifornia so that we can meet!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  45. Dee says

    Okay, first of all, that tunic is beautiful – definitely a good choice! I would pick the Hyatt Regency St. Louis simply because it is within driving distance for me. I would love to go to the one you’re staying at (it sounds wonderful) but I don’t think my husband would agree that paying for airfare in order to receive 2 free hotel nights is a good idea! :)

  46. says

    Since we’re already splurging (a lot) and celebrating a babymoon/anniversary in Austin this coming weekend, I’d have to say we’d probably choose the Hyatt Hill Country resort here in San Antonio so there wouldn’t be many added expenses. Great giveaway!!

  47. says

    I would pick the one at St. Michaels for the same reasons you did and go with my husband. Or, the one in Coral Gables, FL to go with my best girlfriends next year for our 40th birthdays!

  48. tracy says

    Wow! You lucky girl! Have fun!
    I have NO idea which Hyatt I would choose. We NEVER go away for the weekend. I wouldn’t know where to start! :)

  49. says

    Lovely tank! Oh I’d LOVE to stay at the Highlands Inn, A Hyatt Hotel & Vacation Club Resort in Carmel, CA for my husband and I’s 10 year anniversary this July! We love the Monterey/Carmel area and it holds a special feeling for us since we honeymooned in near Monterey. I’d really love to stay anywhere with a beach to celebrate and sadly we probably won’t be able to go anywhere since my husband just lost his job, but thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to dream this morning! Have a blessed day and enjoy your amazing trip and anniversary!

  50. Denise says

    Just dreaming, but I would visit the Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove in Queensland Australia. It is located on the worlds best beaches!

  51. Erin says

    I’d go with the one in Maryland you’re visiting, driveable and looks really nice! Or The Grand Hyatt New York, because we’ve been wanting to go New York for a weekend sometime, never been!

  52. says

    Ummmmm! How amazing??? I would love to use it to stay at the Hyatt Churchill in London – totally central and I could walk to all my old haunts. We’re going to see family in the UK in July and I would love, love, love a chance to escape with Husbando for a couple of days.

  53. Carrie says

    Looking at all the locations makes me want to quit work and tour the world via Hyatt Resorts! : ) But, I would choose the Orlando location so we can take the kids to Disney World – they’ve been begging!!

  54. says

    I would stay at either the Huntington Beach or the Chesapeake- since I can fly using miles in the US- that & needing a beach narrowed it down quite a bit!

  55. Kristel says

    I would love to stay at the Hyatt in Seattle (if there is one in Seattle!) We had a baby girl 3 weeks ago and I am already looking forward to a little weekend getaway sometime this summer!!

  56. Becky says

    Since I don’t have to commit and all……How about the Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove in Australia. Probably wouldn’t be able to swing the airfare though!

  57. says

    I went on their website and tried searching around and you know what – I did not love their website. It would be nice to have a map of the US pop up, then you can click on the state, and then the city or area to see what Hyatt properties there are. If there is not a Hyatt in that area or city or state you can see how close the nearest hyatt is with this map.

    That being said we are traveling to Cape Cod this summer and would like to visit Boston and then Vermont. I saw some Hyatt’s in Boston but could not find any in Vermont or New Hampshire.

  58. Stacy says

    I would want to take my hubby to the Hyatt in New Orleans. My hubby has been working 2 jobs while finishing his masters in public history. All of his grad work has been centered on WWII history and I’d love be able to take him to NO now that he’s finally finishing and see the WWII museum as a thank you for how hard he’s worked for all of us. It would be such fun to watch him comb the museum and artifacts!

  59. Bethany Peterson says

    I WISH there was a resort within driving distance, but there’s not! I would go to Kansas City, where we have lots of friends and family. Stay in a nice Hyatt room, visit lots of people and have a mini-vacay!

  60. Anna says

    What a generous giveaway! I’d pick Mission Bay in San Diego. Because Oregon is COLD and it’s killing us! :)

  61. Becky says

    I won one of the nights last year and would love to win again this year :) My favorite Hyatt that I have been to is in Lexington adjacent to the Arena. We took my 7 year old to see the Jo Bros last year for her birthday and it was nice to be able to go to our hotel without even walking outside. If I win this year, I would probably go somewhere resorty with my husband. I’m kinda digging that Eastern Shore thing. It is close enough that we could make it a weekend trip.

  62. says

    Since we’d have to stay close by (…dang it…) I’d chose the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch. Looks gorgeous and we wouldn’t be that far away.

  63. Elaine says

    Hyatt of the Lost Pines outside of Austin, TX. My past favorite for our entire family was the Hyatt in the Hill Countty, but the Lost Pines is now closer!


  64. says

    I would choose the Hyatt Regency in London, or one of the Hyatts in Boston as we will be there this summer :)

    We are nearly 18 years married, and have just been away (without the kids) for a night to celebrate the wedding anniversary and my husband’s birthday.

    We chose the hotel we had our wedding reception at, and were upgraded to a suite – lovely! Pics on blog.

  65. says

    I am a new follower to your blog, but love it! Fun and personal. Great give-away! My husband and I are missionaries in South Africa (but from Raleigh, North Carolina). This summer we will be back in the States and traveling to meet up with people, and I hope to stop in NYC to see new babies, friends, and enjoy my fav city in the US! I would DEFINITELY stay at the Andaz 5th Avenue in NYC. What a fun dream :) Enjoy your time away – yeah vacations and celebrating marriage!

  66. says

    I would go to the one in Addison, Texas for a little get away with my husband. I LOVE Hyatt- sooooo nice. Have fun on your trip :).

  67. Karina says

    we would probably stay at the hyatt in indianapolis in downtown indy. Its right in the heart of the city.

  68. says

    Hmmm I think I’d choose one of the Hyatt’s that is in Chicago, IL. My Mom loves Chicago and I’ve never been so it would be a good getaway for the both of us! (The Hyatt Regency McCormick Place looks like it has a great view!)

  69. AnnaK says

    Seriously? I think the Hyatt in Chesapeake is THE PLACE I’d go, and second would be a Hyatt in any of the Hawaiian Islands. Have a good time!

  70. Becky says

    Awesome. I’d either choose Chicago, Seattle, or San Diego. Don’t know how I’d decide!!!

  71. Lissa Fairfield says

    I would love to say some far away place but I know I would need to be within driving distance so I must say Chicago, which is a fun place…

  72. says

    I’d pick the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa – we’d love to stay there on our way to visit family back home.

  73. Kim says

    The Hyatt you are staying at looks great – I could do that one too! Enjoy your Anniversary Weekend AWAY!!!

    I always wanted to visit Savannah, GA – and this would be a most excellent way to get there!

  74. Julie says

    Daydreaming of a getaway is always fun. I would love to go to Savannah. Honestly anywhere would be a treat.

  75. says

    wow what an amazing opportunity! You are one lucky lady!!! At first glance I would say I’d like to stay at a Hyatt in Manhattan. Our summer is pretty booked up so time time away at a driveable distance might be just what me and my hubby need!

  76. Christina says

    I would pick the Hyatt on Waikiki beach if I could. Probably would actually pick the Chesapeake Beach one for real. It looks quite nice and is not too far to drive.

  77. says

    Omgoodness! What an awesome prize! I would stay close-ish to home but at Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa on Del Monte Golf Course because I’ve been there for a wedding and it’s fabulous and would love to stay there! Thanks so much!

  78. QuatroMama says

    You know this quad mama would stay at any Hyatt on the planet if it’s FREE! Good going, Jo Lynne!

  79. says

    I could pick about 20 I would like to be at right now! I am feeling tropical so today’s choice would be the Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa. Thanks for the chance to dream about it even if I don’t win!

  80. says

    Hey Jo-Lynne,

    I would either choose to do a stay-cation here in NYC or tack on a day to a seminar I’m attending in DC!

    That’d be so cool : ) Thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway!

    xo, M.

  81. says

    We’re celebrating our FIFTH anniversary this month… the Hyatt Place Grand Rapids-South (MI) would make for a GREAT anniversary trip! :)

  82. says

    Happy Anniversary–early! We stayed at the Hyatt downtown (off Michigan Ave.) for our anniversary trip two years ago, and though I loved it–I would love to celebrate our 10 years coming up at the one YOU mentioned! How beautiful….

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  83. says

    I would TOTALLY pick the Hill Country Hyatt in central TX. We moved from Houston to SC last summer and haven’t seen our friends from there since. We would give them our free nights and buy two nights of our own so we could meet them at the Hyatt for a weekend of R&R and think lovingly of you the entire time!! (She’s also a fan of Musings!)

    Happy early anniversary!

  84. says

    I hope you both have a lovely anniversary trip! Sounds delicious :) We were hoping to do a 20th anniversary trip last summer, but the economy (both public and private!) did not cooperate.
    Anywho, I would love to visit a Hyatt. I’d pick the Charlotte/City Park location, I think. A stay with the hubby, an evening stroll in the park. Sounds so nice!

  85. Mama Bub says

    I would choose the Huntington Beach Hyatt. Close to home, but without the laundry and dishes calling my name.

  86. says

    Wow, now that would be a fun decision to have to make… I can’t do it too quickly! Somewhere out of town, but with cheap airfare to and from… I can’t start dreaming yet, though :) Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  87. Jennifer says

    I love entering giveways, though I have yet to win one. Maybe this will be the one. I would stay at the Hyatt Place in Las Vegas. If you’re going to get away, might as well get all the way away. 😉

  88. says

    I would choose Hyatt Place Chesapeake in Virginia Beach. I’m trying to plan a girls weekend for my old college roommates so this would be perfect!! Thanks!

  89. Pamela C> says

    I would choose either Cleveland, Ohio because my son has to go to The Cleveland Clinic for stays every now and then and that sure would help with the expense of the trips. If we got to use it for a vacation, we would probably go to the Tampa/Oralando area.

    pscole3467 at gmail dot com

  90. ChristineK says

    Oh man, we will be celebrating our 18th Anniversary in August! I guess that makes me really old and definitely an adult 😉 Hawaii would be awesome since we spent our honeymoon there, but it’s not in the budget. We’ve had our eye on the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina. We have heard great things about it from friends and neighbors! That’s where we would choose since it is driving distance for us.

  91. says

    We stayed at the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego and it was AMAZING! Seriously, breathtaking!! We had such a blast and would love to go back.

  92. Nick says

    My cousin had her wedding reception at the Hyatt in Cambridge, MA, overlooking Boston. It was one of the most amazing hotels I’ve ever been to!

  93. says

    i would choose the hyatt in santa rosa california, close to my daughter but still grand luxury! thanks for the opportunity jo lynne!

  94. says

    To be realistic, I would choose the Hyatt in Newport, RI due to driving distance… but if I wanted to splurge, I would love to go to one of the resorts in FL! Maybe the Hyatt Key West Resort and Spa…

  95. tchrtiff says

    I’d love to stay at any Hyatt! My hubby and I are in desperate need of a weekend away. If we can swing it I’d like to stay at the Hyatt in Kauai but most likely it will be a Hyatt a little closer to home (California).

  96. Shawna Suckow says

    My best friend since college days (could it really be 20 years ago?!) and I would have a much-needed girls’ weekend at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta. We’re separated by 1,000 miles and don’t see each other as much as we need to for girl chat, chocolate and lazing around with no hubbies or kids to need us!

  97. Abby H says

    I would love to say the Hyatt Milan, but realistically hyat at olive 8 or whatever it was called lol. This would be perfect for when my hubby comes home for R&R from Iraq!

  98. says

    We have been talking about taking the kids on a surprise vacation over Thanksgiving. So I’m thinking Maui. They have one there right?!

  99. Amy V. says

    Although I would love to pick a location such as Cancun, I am going to be realistic and make the most of 2 nights. I live in Southeastern PA, so I would love to spend 2 nights at the Hyatt in Maryland. I work and am the mother of 2 girls so any kind of vacation is much needed and much appreciated!! Thank you.

  100. Tracy says

    I would choose the Beaver Creek, Colorado resort. We spent our honeymoon in that beautiful city! Our anniversary is August 1st….18 years this year!!

  101. says

    Well first, Happy Anniversary! 15 years! Wow!

    It’s our 10th Sept 2. And yes, I completely understand that bit about being an adult.

    I can’t even tell you how much my husband and I could use a night or two away! I have no idea who would we find to baby sit, but I’m willing to chance it. Just going to the website and dreaming about the possibilities was fun!

    So if I have to pick 1 destination right now, I’m drawn to the Hyatt Regency Newport, i we stay somewhat close to home anyway.

    Thanks for the chance!

  102. Beth says

    I like the one you picked! I’m also a fan of not having to leave the hotel to have a good time. Being close enough to drive makes it a whole lot more affordable too.

  103. Megan says

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I hope you enjoy your trip…congrats on 15 years! I would love to try the Hyatt in Key West, perhaps for our 20th coming up!

  104. Lori says

    this is a great giveaway! i like the hyatt regency hungtington beach resort and spa in california.

  105. gayle says

    I would head to the Eastern Shore too! It’s not far down the road…a perfect way to spend a weekend…no airline delays needed!

  106. Megan says

    I would love to go to the Park Hyatt Paris – Vendome. Will I actually get there? Probably not, but a girl can dream!

  107. Cali says

    What a great giveaway! I hope I win!!!! I’m choosing that Hyatt in the pic at the top of your post. I haven’t seen anything that beautiful in a long time! ooooh ooooh pick me, pick me! =)

  108. Vickie says

    Happy Anniversary!!

    I would pick the Hyatt Cancun. My husband and I will be celebrating our 30th anniversary this year and we’ve been wanting to plan a second honeymoon.

  109. Staci Amy says

    OH WOW!!!! ANNNNY old Hyatt will do!!! Maybe the Hyatt Hill Country in San Antonio??? Good gracious! Thanks for the opportunity!!! And YOU have a super time!

  110. Beth C. says

    I would like to stay at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, DC. We did our family trips to DC-now my husband and I need some time alone there!

  111. Jenn says

    The Hyatt you’re going to looks fabulous so I would choose that one or perhaps the Grand Hyatt in NYC since that is closer to home and we love the city.

    Fabulous tank, btw. I know exactly what you mean about how it’s impossible not to spend a fortune at home parties! In the past few months, I spent $150 at a B’s Purse Party and almost as much at a Mary Kay Party. My husband just rolls his eyes.

  112. says

    Oh my word, my husband and I could use a little mini vacation more than words can express! I would LOVE to stay at their hotel in either Carmel or Monterey (here in California). I mean the resorts look AMAZING but you can’t beat the scenery! Thank you (and Hyatt!) for this giveaway!

  113. Deanna says

    I’m thinking Chicago since I’ve always wanted to go and you can’t beat free lodging but who knows what other whim might change my mind.

  114. ursula says

    oh, decisions, decisions……hmmm…..okay, the Hyatt in NYC…..perfect spot to explore the city!

  115. says

    My sister and I do girls getaway weekends. This year we are thinking about Charleston, SC. The Hyatt in North Charleston would be lovely!

  116. Kristen M. says

    Definitely the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay in San Diego. A little getaway would be lovely.

  117. Valerie says

    We are taking my son to St. Louis in June for his birthday and haven’t made hotel arrangements yet so this would be perfect.

  118. Jessica says

    I would pick the Orlando, Florida Hotel. I live about 30 minutes from there and I’m getting married on July,7th after 10 years! We’ve never had the money for a wedding, so we are just going to have something small. We have a baby, so a honeymoon is out of question! So staying in a hotel 30 minutes away with my( “finally”) husband, would be heaven for me:)

  119. Sharon Stoudt says

    What a great giveaway! I’d love to stay at a Hyatt near DC, because there’s so much fun, historic free stuff to do there!

  120. says

    i honestly think i would like to stay at the chicago one!! it is pretty close to home and i imagine the view is pretty magnificent!!! great giveaway!!!!! thanks!

  121. Shannon says

    I would LOVE to spend some time at the Hyatt in Cambridge MD and be able to visit St. Michael’s. I’ve heard great things about the area and would love a romantic weekend with my husband to escape our work and home schedules for just a bit!

  122. Terri says

    Would love the opportunity to stay in Hyatt in Phoenix or San Diego!!! It would be an awesome date night!!!

  123. Shantel says

    What a fun giveaway! My husband and I have been looking for a little getaway and I think this would be perfect! We live in Washington so I think the Hyatt Regency in Bellevue would be fun and a nice little getaway not too far from our kiddo! Enjoy your 15 year celebration so exciting!! The Hyatt you picked looks like an amazing hotel and you’ll look even more amazing in that top!!

  124. Rachel says

    Ooh how cool! I would love to go to the Scottsdale location…it’s driving distance from where I live, and my hubbyand I could go for our 1 year anniversary! (July 3)

  125. Krista S. says

    Well, since I can pick any I will go with the Hyatt in Cancun. BUT, reality would probably be San Diego or San Francisco. Any of those would be great!!

  126. Kimberly C says

    With such a plethora of choices… it’s quite difficult to decide. However, the pictures of Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa won me over!

  127. says

    so…..3 years ago this month we stayed at the hyatt regency boston to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. our 8th anniversary is coming up in 19 days, and gosh, another mini getaway to boston would be such a welcome treat. so, boston, it is….fingers crossed, and all that jazz 😉

  128. says

    I’m going to say “Hyatt Place Portland Airport/Cascade Station.” We don’t live in Portland, but my brother/SIL do and we’ve been meaning to get up there and visit them. I’ve heard that it’s an innovative city (and that particular Hyatt appears to be perfectly positioned for tourists wanting to explore the city). :)

  129. says

    Well we don’t have a Hyatt up here in Alaska…so if there is one in Seattle WA, or better yet Edmonton Alberta Canada I would totally love either one! I’m a newbie over from Metropolitan Momma…thanks!


  130. KIM H. says

    Hyatt Regency Atlanta. My sister and I are walking in the 3-day for the cure in October for Susan G. Komen. 60 miles, 3 days. Would be GREAT to be able to stay in a hotel while we are there.

  131. says

    I’d choose the Hyatt on Capitol Hill in Columbus, Ohio. My 8 year anniversary is in August and Hubby and I always try and go away somewhere. This would be perfect!

  132. says

    I’m thinking hubby and I would go to Chicago. We live in Mpls but it just wouldn’t feel like a vacay to stay in town. Chicago’s not too far away. Maybe we could take in a Cubs game. See a show. Walk by the lake. Magnificent Mile! Ahh…I’m dreaming now.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  133. Inna S. says

    Hyatt New York City, please!
    It’s always been my dream to
    take vacation in the city I live in.
    Thanks for wonderful contest.

  134. hippie4ever says

    Since I’m leaving for Texas in a week, right now I’d like the Grand Hyatt at DFW silenttributary(at)yahoo(dot)com

  135. Becca says

    The Park Hyatt at Beaver Creek is within driving distance for us, and it looks like it’s got some fun kids activities!

  136. Vanessa says

    I’d like to stay at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis as a little vacation with my family.

    jewelsntreasures (at) yahoo (dot) com

  137. Ashleigh says

    I’d go to the Hyatt Place Portland Airport/Cascade Station because my parents are out there and that means free babysitting! 😉

  138. MariahA says

    I would love to visit the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa as a nice quiet retreat before the baby is born. :)

  139. Liann S says

    If I were to win, I would love to make a trip over to the Hyatt Regency in downtown Indianapolis, IN.

  140. says

    What an awesome opportunity, Jo-Lynne!

    I’d love to stay at the Grand Hyatt New York at 109 East 42nd Street at Grand Central Terminal, New York, New York.

  141. Sarah says

    Ooh! I would definitely have to stay somewhere in my hometown, Tucson, AZ on October 2nd….which will be my wedding night!!!
    Fiance and I are looking for a nice hotel to stay at…free would be awesome :)
