My Recent Stay At the Hyatt Regency Calgary : How They Help Locally

I recently enjoyed a great staycation at the Hyatt Regency Calgary. I had been asked to attend a brunch a few weeks prior and learned there the Hyatt would be doing a mass renovation with plans to do something amazing for a local charity organization called CUPS Calgary that helps families in need.

It’s never lost on me what a privledge it is or how lucky I am to work in this ever changing industry that I’m in. What touches me the most though are the experiences that incorporate the well being of others, donations to local charities, or just helping the community. Long story short the Hyatt purchased all new furniture for their suites. Having worked in the design industry I know that most hotel chains send their lightly used furnishings off to auction. It’s an excellent way to offset the cost of renovating and they often fetch a fair share because hotel furniture is so darn solid.

What I love about this story is that the Hyatt Regency chose to do something else. They’ve been long time supporters of CUPS and decided to donate ALL of the suite furniture to families in need. Not only did they donate furniture but they also welcomed the families (most with small children) to come and enjoy a fun packed sleepover at the Hyatt. 
While I haven’t had to use CUPS myself I have been in a position before as a student where I struggled to make ends meet and cover the basics for my boys. It isn’t always easy and it’s great to know that these families will all have one less worry.

(I love the filtered water taps in every suite- delicious cold water, at no extra charge and no wasteful plastic bottles!)

Anyways to kick off the completed reno I was invited to stay. To say I enjoyed myself at the Hyatt would be an understatement. The rooms were beautifully done and what I always look for in a hotel is whether the beds are comfy and I can tell you, yes, yes they are. To take in the full hotel experience, we ordered room service because it's one of my favourite things to do. I'd never eat eggs and toast in bed at home but it sure was nice.

Another thing that should be noted and praised is the staff. They were all so warm and accommodating, but there was also an air of something else I detected that made my heart happy... pride. Yes they all had a sense of pride at being part of this united team to help us enjoy our experience and would go out of their way to take care of us. I was also delighted to pop by the beautiful Stillwater Spa with the others that attended. Suffice is to say there was no detail overlooked there and after receiving a hand massage it was easy to see how any treatment big or small unwinds stress.

P.S. They also have an amazing pool, hot tub and gym on the 18th floor with a killer view just down the hall from this lounge. Book your stay (here). To make a donation to CUPS visit (here)

Thanks so much to the Hyatt for having us. We truly enjoyed our stay. xo
