As Seen In Travel Agent West Magazine

WHEN NANCY NICOL HONEYMOONED AT THE HYATT REGENCY MAUI 25 YEARS AGO, she was unaware how deep her connection to the hotelier would become. Now a Hawaii Destination Specialist based in Denver, Nicol was crowned one of Hyatt’s top-selling agents at its annual travel agent awards last month. “I didn’t know then that I’d maintain such a strong relationship to the brand,” she says.

For that relationship, reciprocal in its profitability, Nicol won 50 free nights to use at any Hyatt property worldwide, which amounts to one million Hyatt Gold Passport points. Nicol considers the award generous and plans to pay it forward by donating 50,000 of those points to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which Hyatt will match, based on a partnership Hyatt established with the nonprofit organization back in 2006. The program enables Gold Passport members to donate hotel nights for use in granting the wishes of sick children, such as a stay at the Park Hyatt Dubai for a 12-year-old girl from Holland who was treated to spa treatments, tea with Princess Tamara Laura Czartoryski-Borbon and a dinner of her favorite foods at the program’s launch. “I’m excited to have someone help me to do some good,” Nicol says, “and I’m really happy to be able to do this.”

Nicol had the same reaction to winning as last year’s winner, Aggie Lewis of Gaffney Travel, whom Travel Agent also has profiled. “Listening to the introduction [at this year’s event],” Nicol recalls, “I said, ‘That must be a really great person,’ and then they said my name and I almost fell off my chair.”Hawaii vacation planner
After all, she has simply been doing what she loves. She started her career in the travel industry at a car rental business, eventually finding a fit in luxury travel planning, and zeroed in on Hawaii as her destination of choice. After all, Hawaii is truly the definition of Paradise. “I consider it a privilege to have to visit the islands and Hyatt properties on a regular basis to stay abreast of the ever changing services and products offered by The Hyatt brands and the island sorit of Aloha. Nicol went on to say, “it’s a tough job but someone has to do it!.” albeit with a devilish grin.

She tries to travel to Hawaii at least once a year. “I’m able to give a personal description of what my clients might experience and I think that gives clients a good feeling to hear that I just got back [from there].”
