Martha Stewart with Chris Walker, VP of Hyatt House.
We've been proponents of Hyatt's upscale extended stay brand,Hyatt House, pretty much since it was announced (the brand took over the existing Summerfield Suites and Hotel Sierras.) How could we object to stylish, comfy new digs and free WiFi? Yet while Hyatt House has been populating all over America, it's been missing from the big cities. But now we're can get excited about the Hyatt House coming to NYC's Chelsea hood in 2015.
Hyatt House made the NYC announcement last week alongside none other than Martha Stewart who has partnered up with the hotel brand for her new "American Made" program. Guests who stay at more than 20 participating Hyatt Houses will get tips on how to live like a local during their stay. Such tips include places to eat, shop and visit, all of which embrace Martha's "American Made" spirit.
While we think Martha might be more of Park Hyatt guest than a Hyatt House, she did offer up some packing tips that work for hotel guests of all classes. Keep reading to see what they are!
If you’re a home décor fanatic, and big fan of Martha Stewart, you’d think you’d want to throw yourself hook, line, and sinker into wedding preparations. But based on this new promotion from Sandals Resorts and Martha Stewart, it looks like there are plenty of nesting types whose passion for napkins and placeholders does not extend to destination weddings. (Hey, we don’t blame them. If we were on a tropical island with a rum punch just a snap of our fingers away, we wouldn’t want to be worrying about coordinating bouquets and boutonnieres either.)
The new Sandals Weddings by Martha Stewart “experiences” take the concept of an all-inclusive resort and a wedding reception package, and runs with it all the way to the crystal-clear shore. From January 1st, brides and grooms will be able to book one of six Sandals Weddings by Martha Stewart themes at 18 different Luxury Included Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts across the Caribbean.
Perhaps to recover from the loss of her beloved dog Paw Paw, Martha Stewart took her crew to the Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas and she even blogged about it! (You know Martha, you could have just submitted a VIP Review to HotelChatter.)
Anyways, Martha's short on text but long on photos and photo captions. After looking at all the pics on her blog, we gathered this is what she did at the Atlantis resort: made a meal with executive sous chef at Jean George Vongerichten’s Café Martinique, tried on straw hats, checked out the garden at The Cove, observed architecture, bandaged her friend's hurt leg, went for a swim in rough seas, pitied her make-up assistant who got seasick, took a lot of pictures on the boat and fed some manta rays.
Go Martha! That's way more action than what we experienced at the resort last year.
As for accommodations, we're guessing Martha et. al. were put up in The Cove which is the newer and more pricier tower.
