I've been going since 1974 and way over 35+ times. I have both awards, got a free hotel stay (then it was the Americana and I stayed there every year for 15 years) and a crystal dolphin. That was back in the 80s. Don't think they give the gifts anymore. I watched almost all of the hotels being built. Last time I was there was July, 2008 my Dad died in September and my Mom died last June. After 5 long years, I am finally going back at the end of September and staying at the Hyatt this time. Hopefully, I can start my streak again!
