Hello All The Hyatt ..... well not quite what we expected but we are willing to keep an open mind ;) With accomodation included in our flight to Vancouver via Seoul, we had imagined a cheapo hotel to suit our recent unemployment but instead we were put up in a king size bed, dinner, breaky & lunch included in the Incheon Hyatt!!!!
