Best Hyatt in NYC for a points stay as a tourist? Not the Park Hyatt though. Globalist status if that matters. Are the Grand Hyatt or Herald Square any good? I don't know NYC very well

Union square is a better area if you want to live like a local (eat and barhop at east/west village). Grand Hyatt is better if you want tourist things (central park, Broadway, times square)

I liked the Andaz 5th Avenue, it's a bit pricey but the hotel itself is nice and in a great location

Thanks A1, sadly no avail on my dates. Looks very nice though!

I’ve stayed at the andaz on 5th, grand hyatt and union square. Hands down best location is union square for exploring. Andaz has a really nice one bedroom upgrade and grand Hyatt is right in the main train station. Not bad locations either though. Union square has smaller rooms and the suite upgrade is nothing more than a larger studio.

True D1, haven't used those yet. But 30k points a night 😲

Thanks A2, did the touristy things as a teenager, union Sq idea sounds nice

You could look at using the corp rate for your stay. Book directly through Hyatt using the corp code.

$638 a night with code 😱

Eeeks

Our school instituted a district wide 50% floor/grading policy. If you give a student an assignment and they do nothing, not even write their name, or turn in a blank sheet of paper, they get a 50%. If they score less than 50% on a quiz or test, we have to mark it up to a 50%. This is the new norm and is causing kids to not do work, or just the bare minimum. It has taken the joy out of teaching and has taken away the accountability of students. Anyone else facing this? What do you do?

I don’t belong in my job. I didn’t mind it when I joined in January and was interacting but as we’ve been work from home longer, the less motivation I have. I don’t enjoy the work but I’ve gotten unlucky with my teams too, and can’t remember the last time my manager praised me without a critique. Maybe I’m just bad at my job. At this point I just am doing the bare minimum to not get fired. What do I do? Should I look for a job that I actually would enjoy doing or stick it out?
