-Service at the Park Hyatt Buenos Aires was somewhat inconsistent. We were not addressed by name as consistently as we were at international Park Hyatt locations. The vast majority of the employees at the hotel were awesome and very friendly. English is spoken by all very well. However there are a handful of employees that made for some unpleasantness that I have never experienced at an international Park Hyatt before. The hotel gives free complimentary bottles of water and they specifically told us to just call for more when we needed it. However when they delivered our amenity (a few oranges) we asked for more water and the employee proceeded to open our fridge and exclaim that we already had water. When we asked for a late checkout we were told to check back later when a supervisor would be around.

I did notice that the cutout where your feet go when the seat is made into a bed varied greatly between seats. While some seats had huge footwell cutouts, others had significantly smaller footwells. Bulkheads seemed to have the biggest footwell cutouts. Each seat has a large LCD with hundreds and hundreds of free movies and TV shows to watch. You can even control your iPod from the screen. All in all it’s a … [Read more...] about Trip Notes: Our SoCal Quasi-Mileage Run…
[AJK: Frankly, it was harder to secure a shower than I thought it would be. Perhaps it’s just me, but I expected that passengers flying First should have priority over those flying Business, but apparently it’s first come, first serve, regardless of class. That said, being assertive worked and I was finally given shower room. Mid-shampoo, when I heard final boarding call for our ANA flight back to New York, I jumped out of the shower and high-tailed it to the gate, which fortunately was only a couple minutes away.] … [Read more...] about United Island Hopper Trip Notes Part 4: Tokyo, Japan And Back Home In ANA First Class
