Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Just remember not to light the grill

Hyatt’s “Hyatt Place” chain is doing one of the first promotions I’ve seen from a major hotel group aimed at the traveling football fan:

Traveling during football season? Hyatt Place’s Sports Package has everything for us sports and high-def fans need to enjoy college / pro football. They allow guests to check in earlier and stay later, give ’em a bigger room with an eight-foot sectional couch, a choice of either the college or pro DirecTV package, and even a pizza with two 20 oz. beverages (read: non-alcoholic). The package is available now through December 30, 2007 – bowl games and the Play-Offs are on national stations after that anyways – at 70 Hyatt Places nationwide.

If you check the list of participating hotels, several potential bowl destinations are covered. I might try this chain out just for the 42″ HDTVs with DirecTV in the rooms. I’ve about had it with higher-end business hotels that think it’s OK to still give you 15 channels on their fuzzy in-hotel cable networks and charge you upwards of $10 per day for Internet access.
