Hyatt’s Park Hyatt chain is offering the use of a hybrid bicycle to its guest for four hours each day of their stay in select cities. This is a fairly new Park Hyatt program but the number of hotels on board is growing with cities such as Washington D.C., Paris, Chicago, Buenos Aires, and Moscow onboard. By signing up with the hotel a week in advance of your stay, you will be provided with hybrid bikes for four hours, along with a lock, helmet, water, and map of area cycling trails. Contact the hotel’s concierge for more information on the Bicycle Valet Program.

Whether it is taking a leisurely ride around the city, or getting acquainted with the global trend of urban cycling lanes, Park Hyatt makes it easy to enjoy the ride with its new Bicycle Valet program, slated to launch worldwide on August 1, 2009. Available through the concierge, this specialty service invites guests to uncover the city’s best sites with the use of a bicycle and the following amenities: a lock, helmet, lights, pump, kickstand, bottled water, and biking map, based on availability.
The Park Hyatt Bicycle Valet program will be complimentary at most Park Hyatt locations with a refundable deposit. Bicycles will be available in four-hour increments and guests will be required to complete a waiver before checking out a bicycle. Guests using the Bicycle Valet service at select locations will also be able to request a gourmet picnic lunch to take with them on their urban exploration.
Seeing a city by bike is a great way to see a lot of places in a very short period of time. This is especially true in bike-friendly cities such as Paris and Washington, D.C. With Hyatt’s Faster Free Nights only a month away taking advantage of offers such as this one offered by the Park Hyatt should be considered when you are planning on your Hyatt vacations. Be sure to confirm the hotel offers the bicycle service before booking and contact the concierge as soon as possible after booking to ensure availability.
