Understanding the needs of women business travelers is essential to Hyatt. We recognize the common dilemmas that come with traveling often for work and how traveling light can’t always be an option. That is one of the reasons we’ve created a Women’s Experience to simplify your travel experiences.

Whether you’ve forgotten one small item or ten, we have a selection of complimentary items we can deliver right to your door. We’ve also updated our menus to include an assortment of dishes as well as smaller portions, available longer throughout the day.  Learn more about the Women’s Experience and everything that’s offered at www.hyatt.com/experience.

Beginning August 26, Park Hyatt Chicago is excited to roll out our “What Women Want” bi-weekly blog series, featuring a variety of savvy female business women on their travel essentials.
