Hyatt Place See It Share It: 200 Giveaways in 200 Hours
For 200 hours from August 18 through August 26, 2014, travelers will be encouraged to share photos that capture their Hyatt Place experiences via Instagram, Twitter and Foursquare/Swarm using #HyattPlace and #HPEntry. The photos will be aggregated on the brand's digital See It Share It platform, and participants will have an opportunity to win one of 200 free night stays.
"Crossing the 200 hotel threshold means our colleagues are providing an award-winning Hyatt Place experience to more guests in more locations," said Chris Walker, vice president, brand experience, Hyatt Place. "Guests continue to share their Hyatt Place stories and experiences across social platforms by posting photos of their time at our hotels. It's been very rewarding to see how our guests enjoy signature Hyatt Place experiences whether it's a mixed and matched breakfast selection from the a.m. Kitchen Skillet or putting their feet up and relaxing in the Cozy Corner. We love seeing their photos and natural affinity for the brand come to life on See It Share It."

With their support, we are on a terrific trajectory," said John Cantele, senior vice president, select service for Hyatt.
