CHICAGO // PRNewswire // -- Hyatt Resorts today announced a new way for guests to win free hotel nights. To kick-off its Best of All Worlds campaign, Hyatt is launching a challenge hosted on the new Hyatt Resorts Facebook page www.facebook.com/HyattResorts – asking fans to demonstrate through an uploaded photo how they experience the "Best of All Worlds" when they travel.
By submitting their photos, five lucky winners will be rewarded with Hyatt Gold Passport® points – enough for a two-night stay at any Hyatt Resort destination worldwide. Participants also have a second opportunity to win Hyatt Gold Passport points when they tag themselves in their submitted photo. The challenge will run from July 6 to July 26, 2010.
Travelers staying at Hyatt Resorts experience the "Best of All Worlds" by enjoying local culture while experiencing the authentic hospitality, thoughtful service and distinctive amenities that each Hyatt Resort offers. Guests can dance the night away and wake up to a scuba lesson, take in a museum followed by a romantic dinner for two at a world class Hyatt restaurant, or get the family together for hula lessons and a sunset sail on the Pacific. The "Best of All Worlds" means something a little different to every traveler and Hyatt wants to find out what it means to its guests.
The Best of All Worlds Challenge gives Hyatt fans the opportunity to select the Hyatt Resort that they would most like to visit and to share a picture of the activity they would most like to do during their stay. A photo of the activity, either taken by the traveler or from the Hyatt Resort activity album on Facebook, must be uploaded to the Hyatt Resorts Facebook page by the fan in order to be entered. Fans can learn more about the challenge and obtain the full rules by visiting the Best of All Worlds tab on the Hyatt Resorts Facebook page.
During the challenge, fans of Hyatt Resorts will have a chance to show their loyalty to a specific Hyatt Resort. Challenge winners will be selected randomly from the entrants of the Hyatt Resort that has the most fans participating.
