Travel Tuesday: What's New?
- PROTEST Thousands of hotel workers are picketing, protesting, and striking against Hyatt Hotels Corporation in four cities nationwide -- Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Honolulu. The working conditions have been citedas "deplorable", as employees' contracts expired in San Francisco in August 2009, in Los Angeles in November 2009, and in Honolulu in June 2010.

- BURN While many think of gaining calories when it comes to room service, the trend now-a-days is lose, lose, lose. These days, people request yoga mats, workout videos, treadmills and recumbent bicycles (yes, really -- they fold). [FOX]
- DIVORCE We know, it sounds weird. But it is. Need a nice place to get divorced? Try the new Divorce Hotel in Holland, where couples who have a common interest -- luxury hotels -- can go to have a 3-day, lawyer-free divorce in an amicable environment. [The World]
- RECLINE Or not. Apparently, reclining one's seat on a flight is considered rude and uncouth. Do you recline as a right of passage or as a luxury? [Huffington Post]
- SPOOK This Halloween, Loews Hotels are offering a "Spooky Suite" package where guests can mask themselves in specialty costumes from Party City. Party City's Costume Concierge will assist in styling adults, children and pets from an exclusive Costume Catalogue. [PR Newswire]
