Ski at Beaver Creek Mountain Resort in Colorado, and it's hard to deny there's any hotel better situated than the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek. Other Beaver Creek ski lodges and hotels can promise "ski in ski out" access, but none have Park Hyatt's backyard right at the base of the mountain, not to mention a front yard right in Beaver Creek Village.
You might expect uber exclusiveness given the hotels pristine location, but we recently discovered something unexpectedly communal about Park Hyatt Beaver Creek; free gourmet s'mores.
It was about 4 pm and we were coming in from our last run as the slopes were closing for the day. The sun was already on the move to set and we couldn't help but to notice the glowing fire pits at the Park Hyatt, just steps away from the Buckaroo Gondola. Why not wander over? It was far too picturesque and inviting to pass up.

Either Hurricane Sandy has unresolved issues with Hyatt, or NYC construction workers didn't properly secure their equipment like they were supposed to. We're guessing it's the latter.
In any case, earlier this afternoon, a crane on top of One57 (the still-in-progress glass tower that's eventually supposed to become the Park Hyatt New York) got snapped in half by howling 60 mph winds, and is currently dangling precariously over 7th Avenue.
Since further winds could cause the crane to collapse completely and fly off into the air, the NYPD is ordering the evacuation of all buildings surrounding the crane, which includes more than a few major hotels (Hilton New York and Le Parker Meridien come to mind).
Did we mention that One57 is also slated to be Manhattan's tallest residential building? Yeah, this is kind of a situation.
Final stop after the stretch
Sunrise yoga. Noontime meditation. Rush hour water aerobics. Really, we thought we'd heard of everything when it comes to lower impact fitness classes offered at hotels. That is, we thought we'd heard of everything until we got wind of the "Good Night Sleep Stretch" at the Park Hyatt Tokyo.
Sure, the hotel may be more famous for its cloud-high New York Bar where pivotal scenes of Lost in Translation were filmed, but unlike the bar with its evening cover charge, the Sleep Stretch is a free amenity for guests.
So what happens? Every Wednesday and Saturday night at 9pm in the Aerobics Studio of the hotel's Club On The Park, guests come together with an instructor to "relax and stretch [their] entire body before bed to promote a restful sleep." Simple and relaxing. And did we mention it was free?
BEER FLOATS. Yes, you read that right. BEER. FLOATS. As in, like root beer floats but with actual alcohol. Just because you've likely never had them doesn't mean they simply don't exist, and the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek is proving their awesomeness by offering a variety of boozy combinations at their 8100 Mountainside Bar & Grill.
Contrary to any sticky memories of past root beer floats, the Park Hyatt's beer floats will naturally arrive at your barstool with a bit more savoir-faire. Each beer, for example, is a rare or seasonal offering. Each ice cream and sorbet chosen for it is also something handcrafted and handpicked for ideal balance.
In the past few months, Park Hyatt Hotels have unveiled plans for new hotels in Bangkok and South Korea but now the luxe Hyatt brand is coming a little closer to us--St. Kitts.
The relatively small island hotel will have just 200 guestrooms and 50 residential condos along with three restaurants and bars, a fitness center, a 12-treatment room spa, an 18-hole championship golf course, a beach club, and a 300-acre super yacht marina and marina village.
Thanks to our far-flung, adventurous and nonstop jetsetting contributors who never enter a hotel room without photographing the place from top to bottom, we've been able to get a peek into hotel rooms around the world by flipping through our numerous Photo Galleries.
We have so many good shots from so many great hotels, it's getting hard to keep track of all of them. So from now on, we'll be rounding up our favorite photo galleries once a week. Some will be pulled together by hotel brand, like we're doing today, others will be done by city, design, style, amenities or just plain old hotel lust.
Got a hotel you'd like to see more of? Ask us, we probably have pictures of it!
Today, we're spending time with a few of our favorite Park Hyatt Hotels, specifically Park Hyatt Sydney, Park Hyatt Shanghai and Park Hyatt Chicago. Plus, there's even a bonus video of the tub at Park Hyatt Mendoza. Happy flipping!
Yes, the Park Hyatt Sydney is still on our minds! After learning of Lady Gaga's grand entrance at the hotel, and taking a look at the suite life she enjoyed while there, it's time to look at how the 'regular folks' live when they check into the new-look Park Hyatt.
We say 'regular folks,' because an entry-level room here, a City Harbour King, starts at around AU$750 a night. For us, that's a Lady Gaga price tag.
Which is why we couldn't stay at the hotel during a recent visit to Sydney. But we did get a tour of a few rooms and the public spaces so we could bring you this look from inside the perennial celeb fave and now-hot-again Park Hyatt Sydney...

Now that Lady Gaga has gone and upstaged the most famous hotel in all of Australia, the Park Hyatt Sydney, let's take a look at the super-swank Sydney Suite which she called home during her visit down under.
The suite was occupied--by someone other than Gaga--during our recent tour of the property, but we can show you these PR shots from the hotel. And if you click through our gallery, you'll also see our snaps of the Park Hyatt's Harbour Suite, not so shabby itself, and going for AU$5,500 a night this weekend.
We can tell you that Gaga's digs, the Sydney Suite, usually rents at $16,000 a night. Or, if you decide to rent it along with the two Rooftop Suites on the same level, to create a super A-list compound for yourself, the whole floor will set you back $50,000 a night.
Few things are more coveted among hotels than claiming the title of "World's Tallest Hotel". However, just as "World's Tallest Building", chances are something just that little bit taller will be built soon enough.
So is the case for Park Hyatt Shanghai, located on floors 79-93 of the Shanghai World Financial Center, tallest hotel until The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong opened (which is set to be eclipsed yet again by the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai).
That didn't stop us from popping in and taking the express elevator up to the lobby on floor 87 and restaurant 100 Century Avenue (named after the hotel's address) on floor 91. Views across Shanghai are truly staggering, with the famous Oriental Pearl Tower looking positively puny in comparison.
One floor up on level 92 is bar Music Room which features live music to accompany the night-time view. That shiny multi-faceted building you see front left? The Grand Hyatt Shanghai, where you can head to Cloud 9 Bar on floor 87 if Music Room on 92 is just a few floors too high for you.

Zac Efron has done a lot of growing up since playing 'Troy' on the hit Disney trilogy High School Musical. These days, he's busy being a bona fide movie star, jetting around the world, condoms exploding out of his pocket, and frolicking around on hotel balconies in his undies.
The 24-year-old actor was photographed half-naked making some pretty suggestive poses on his balcony at the Park Hyatt Sydney, with no apparent knowledge that the paps were waiting below. Which is slightly ridiculous, given the fact that he was on a balcony. According to the website that posted the photos, his suite was facing out to Sydney Harbour, so technically he might have had reason to believe he was in the clear.
Or maybe, he just really wanted to show off how well he can carry a room service tray without spilling anything.
Opening in 2013, the Park Hyatt Busan will be part of a new mixed used development comprising three residential towers, one office tower and the ubiquitous retail space located at Haeundae Beach in Busan.
The hotel itself will have 268 guestrooms, including 69 suites, two restaurants, a lobby lounge, fitness center, seven-treatment room spa, and an indoor pool. The hotel is being designed by New York starchitect, Daniel Libeskind and the Tokyo-based design firm with the super cool name of Super Potato will do the interiors.
Sven Blogt's City Harbour King room
Apart from a sprinkling of tweets from a fab Aussies lucky enough to go to an opening party for the Park Hyatt Sydney last week, there has been very little fanfare about the return of the iconic hotel.
This is a surprise, but as blogger Sven Hennig points out in his review of the hotel, it is still in the soft opening phase, so perhaps they are waiting just a teensy bit longer before waving the big old Australian flag around--not to mention showing us photos of the new-look rooms on their website.
