Hyatt Place is inviting travel agents to its hotels this summer ? including popular destinations such as Scottsdale, Nashville, Tampa and Atlanta ? to experience the brand?s distinctive atmosphere of casual hospitality. Through Labor Day, all agents arriving at a Hyatt Place hotel on Friday or Saturday will receive their first night free and additional nights for just $59/night(a).

?We consider travel agents our brand ambassadors, so it?s crucial to give them the opportunity to experience Hyatt Place and everything it provides,? said Rob Sarmiento, vice president for Hyatt Corporation. ?Travel agents are one of the best examples of people living the multi-tasking, 24/7 lifestyle for which Hyatt Place was designed. We?re confident agents will find that Hyatt Place allows guests to remain relaxed, fulfilled and productive while traveling.?

To book this offer, travel agents can call 888 492-8847 and must request the ?NXCW? code for the free night and ?NXCX? for the $59/night rate. Agents must arrive on Friday or Saturday to qualify for these special rates and present a valid IATA card upon check-in. Rates are available May 28 through September 3, 2007.

Hyatt Place was inspired by the changing landscape of contemporary, multi-tasking business travelers, who have successfully adapted to today?s ?24/7 lifestyle,? seamlessly merging personal and professional activities.

Similar to what travelers might experience at home, guests can take advantage of free Wi-Fi access, stretch out on the eight-foot Cozy Corner sofa-sleeper or work at an oversized desk in an ergonomic chair. They can also catch the evening news, the big game or the latest feature movies on the 42-inch flat panel, high-definition television offering 11 channels of high-definition programming in addition to an already impressive channel selection. Hyatt Place guests will also have access to Hotel SportsNet service, which includes NFL SUNDAY TICKET and NBA LEAGUE PASS as well as other professional and college sports programming. Hyatt Place guests can stay connected through the innovative Hyatt Plug Panel, which allows guests to connect their own entertainment media to the high-definition TV, including laptops, MP3 players, DVD players or any other portable device. The signature Hyatt Grand Bed ensures guests can enjoy a peaceful night?s sleep in the bedroom area.

Hyatt Place hotels also feature the Gallery, an innovative welcoming arrival area where guests are personally greeted by the Gallery Host who assists guests with everything from check-in to providing personal tours of the hotel.

In the Gallery, guests will also find a self-registration kiosk, an intimate coffee and wine caf? and bakery, free Wi-Fi, a TV den and an e-room with free access to a public computer and printer. Guests at Hyatt Place may purchase signature hot breakfast entr?es along with Starbucks specialty coffees or enjoy a free continental breakfast. Hyatt Place also offers a variety of freshly prepared, caf? quality items, including made-to-order entr?es, sandwiches, soups, salads and pizza which guests can order 24 hours a day, seven days a week via a touch screen menu in the Guest Kitchen or from the Gallery Host.

To help guests stay physically and mentally productive, they can also utilize the hotel?s swimming pool or StayFit@Hyatt gym featuring state-of-the-art Life Fitness equipment.
