    I'm seeing $59 (pre-paid/non-refundable) weekend rates at both the Morristown & Parsippany Summerfield Suites (with 'G1' bonuses until the end of Feb.)![​IMG]

    Nice! Too bad I'm not out there to take advantage. Having that G1 bonus is sweet.

    Yes, that's why I'm taking advantage of it -- even though a pending GP promo is in the offing! Gotta strike while the 'iron is hot!'[​IMG]

    I looked into March at these properties, since GP promos usually include reservations made before the start date as long as they occur within the promo dates obviously. While the rate isn't bad at $79....it's obviously not that great either :)

    I think it's a 'seasonal' shift in rates, too. I'm pretty sure that with weather issues, business has been less than stellar!

    True. Once their pools open....the better rates are at the Morristown HR (which usually then goes to a G2!)

    Now this post I had to like.....the M'tn HR pool is well....lets just say I rather swim at the SS ones :)
    The Princeton HR pool is quite nice (but it can be VERY busy/noisy - of course I have a little one too, so it doesn't bother me all that much! [​IMG])

    I like the Princeton HR pool, as well! Pools are a definite plus when you have a l'il one![​IMG]

    There are still pre-paid rates of $59 - $69/nt at these properties for March -- but no 'G' bonuses![​IMG]
    I also saw a AAA rate of $89.10 at the Hyatt in Morristown (no G bonus, though)!

  17. Does Hyatt still permit one not to show up for the actual stay, and award points? I read some interview somewhere with one of their execs that they actual don't mind the mattress running folk, and do award points for "ghost" stays.

    I have no idea! AFAIK, you (or someone) has to check-in, -- whether you actually sleep at the hotel -- that's your choice! I always check in, but don't necessarily spend the night. Then I may return in the morning for brekky![​IMG]

    Not as far as I know. I did a lot of mattress runs in Raleigh last year and once I forgot to actually show up and check in. I got charged and got no show credit or points.

    I did mattress run at those locations too, but is the faster free night back?
    I used to check in there every weekend
