Past News Releases


The Manchester Grand Hyatt has just received a Five-Star rating and an accompanying composite score of 94% from MeetingUniverse. Traditional rating systems such as AAA and Mobil have historically focused on the individual business/leisure traveler. Unlike AAA and Mobil, MeetingUniverse is the first company to provide ratings based on meeting and event performance.

"The score generated by the Manchester Grand Hyatt is truly impressive," said Russell Ridge President/CEO of MeetingUniverse. "Out of the numerous hotels that have received reviews and full ratings by meeting planners, the Manchester Grand Hyatt is so far the highest scoring hotel."

The composite score and accompanying star rating are derived from 10 surveys by actual meeting planners that have held meetings/events at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. Furthermore, each meeting surveyed must have been held within the last 12 months with at least 50 attendees. Each survey completed by a planner contains over 70 questions regarding very specific meeting/event criteria. As such the composite score received by the Manchester Hyatt provides a much clearer picture of the hotel's meeting/event performance than ratings from AAA and Mobil who use a one-day, one-person point of view.

"Not only can a planner look at the composite score received by the
Manchester Grand Hyatt and rest assured that they will have a successful meeting/event but that same planner can look in-depth at all of the answers to the surveys to gain an unparalleled understanding of this fantastic property," said Mr. Ridge.

Mr. Kelly Commerford of the Manchester Hyatt says, "We are thrilled that our Meeting Planner's are rating us with a 94% which equates to a 5 Star by MeetingUniverse. Our 1,200 dedicated associates and management are proud that our Authentic Hospitality is paying off with satisfied meeting planners that want to return to the property with repeat programs. At The Manchester Grand Hyatt you are more then welcome."

Another indicative example of the Manchester's performance is a survey comment made by a planner: "The Manchester Grand Hyatt has outstanding attention to detail for such a large hotel. The staff is most welcoming and its location in San Diego is fantastic. We've been back twice now. Everyone says they want to have the 2009 meeting there."
