On the superficial level I knew the horrors of immigrants here in the U.S. However, the appalling conditions in which so many immigrant workers survive, and are so abused, cheated and demeaned were dramatically portrayed in Sonni Efron's "Mother's Plight Turns a Home Into Sweatshop" (Nov. 27). As if the conditions weren't so horrendous as to have children stripped of their education, the fact that this family has yet to see one cent of their money truly disturbs me.

The union representing North American hotel workers has reached "partnership" pacts with two major hotel operators, but workers in Chicago, San Francisco and Honolulu are holding strike votes this week as local labor contract talks stall. In July, the union announced a five-year accord with Beverly Hills-based Hilton that includes smoothing the way for Unite Here to organize hotels owned by the chain.

Hyatt Corp. disclosed plans to buy the 143-hotel AmeriSuites chain in an acquisition analysts said made the luxury hotel company more of a well-rounded rival to much bigger Marriott International Inc. and Hilton Hotels Corp. The sale amount was not announced by either Hyatt, owned by the Pritzker family, or Blackstone Group Inc., seller of New Jersey-based AmeriSuites. But a source familiar with the deal, speaking on condition of anonymity, put it at more than $600 million.

Chicago's Pritzker family may sell shares in its Hyatt Corp. hotel company to the public and break up the rest of its $15-billion empire to settle a financial dispute among family members, said a person familiar with the situation. The Pritzkers decided last year to divide its investments after some family members threatened lawsuits over control of Hyatt's vast holdings, the person said.

The Hyatt Corp. announced today it is replacing the 19-year-old logo for its hotels and resorts with an updated symbol designed to project a more stylish image. The new rectangular-shaped logo features the word Hyatt, written in stylized white letters on a deep blue background. A slim red crescent drawn through the letter "A" "symbolizes the sunrise-to-sunset experience of the Hyatt guest," Chicago-based Hyatt said in a statement.

The Alicante Princess, the $51-million, towering pink hotel in Garden Grove, has tossed out the hotel's operator, Princess Cruises, and brought in Hyatt Corp. in an apparent effort to boost sagging profits and bring in more guests. Starting Aug. 15, Century City-based Princess Cruises Resorts & Hotels--a relative neophyte in the hotel business--will be out and Hyatt will begin operating the renamed Hyatt Regency Alicante, Chicago-based Hyatt Corp. said Wednesday.

For most of the 175 workers at the Hyatt Wilshire Hotel, 1991 ended with a thud. Before dawn Tuesday, their jobs disappeared as a Korea-based hotel chain opening its first U.S. outlet assumed ownership and management of the 396-room Mid-Wilshire hotel and brought in a virtually new set of employees. The practice, which is legal, is most often used by new management companies that want to cut labor costs by ridding themselves of a unionized work force such as that at the Hyatt Wilshire.

Hyatt Corp. offered Thursday to buy rival hotelier Ramada Inc. for an estimated $397 million.

Hyatt chief Jay Pritzker made the offer in a letter to Ramada Chairman Richard Snell, Hyatt spokeswoman Karen Rugen said.

Hyatt Corp., the hotel chain renowned for stunning glass atrium lobbies, swank service and pricey rooms, is planning to try its hand at luxury group-housing for retirees. Penny Pritzker, member of the billionaire family that controls Hyatt, said the Classic Residence subsidiary she heads is part of a broader trend by big business to get into the fragmented but potentially lucrative market of residences for retirees. Classic Residence "was a family-generated idea," she said.
