HYATT MAKES IT EASY TO GIVE AND RECEIVE THE GIFT OF TRAVEL DURING THE HOLIDAYS WITH THE NEW HYATT WISH LIST is a new way to create unforgettable Hyatt travel experiences for the holidays or any occasion

CHICAGO (November 30, 2009)Hyatt Hotels & Resorts announces it has unveiled the new Hyatt Wish List website. The Hyatt Wish List is an interactive website providing a resource for travelers to customize and plan their ideal travel experience and share it with friends and family.  In addition to helping plan and share the trip of a lifetime, the Hyatt Wish List provides an easy and secure shopping tool for friends and family to make purchases toward a Wish List. The Hyatt Wish List is also a great way to organize and coordinate a gift from a group of well- wishers for any gift-giving occasion, such as an anniversary, birthday, retirement, or graduation. Giving travelers the maximum amount of flexibility, reservations are not required in advance of creating a Hyatt Wish List.

In addition, purchases toward the Hyatt Wish List will be provided in the form of a Hyatt Gift Card or Gift Check, so if plans change, guests have the freedom to experience their trip however they want.

Hyatt Wish lists can include anything charged to a room folio including rejuvenating spa visits, award-winning food and beverage, as well as various other activities provided or hosted by Hyatt, which may include golf, horseback riding, or mountain biking, just to name a few. It is recommended that guests contact the property or properties they wish to visit for a full listing of amenities and activities when building their Hyatt Wish List.

The Hyatt Wish List is simple to use:

  • Travelers who want to build a wish list should visit to create an account by entering basic information. They are then on their way to planning their trip of a lifetime.
  • Purchases can be made by friends, relatives and other well-wishers using a secure shopping cart, and the check out process takes only a few minutes.
  • The site is also designed for recipients to review purchases made toward their Hyatt Wish List and provides useful details regarding these purchases such as when and who made the purchase, making it easy to say thank you.
  • Recipients can select any disbursement date they choose, whether it is a few weeks or several months in advance.
  • On the selected disbursement date, Hyatt will send the recipient their Hyatt Gift Card and/or Hyatt Check Certificate in the amount purchased against their wish list. Hyatt will then pick up the shipping and processing charges.
