Let me repeat more succinctly what others have said: DON'T TOUT. Factual information on hotels (and other things) written in a way consistent with our Manual of Style is welcome; advertising is not. Toutish changes will be rolled back, and we can roll 'em back faster than you can write 'em. -- Bill-on-the-Hill 15:20, 14 September 2007 (EDT)

Please stop.[edit]

Okay, listen up. So far you've just been going from article to article, writing what are practically advertisements for Hyatt hotels and some golf resorts. Please stop. Wikitravel is not an advertising brochure. Please read the Welcome, business owners page and the Don't tout page for advice on how to properly edit pages. :-) PerryPlanet 15:24, 14 September 2007 (EDT)

EDIT: Whoops, posted at the same time Bill did.

Just to add a bit more, the addition of hotels to articles is appreciated, but contributors here have a huge problem with Wikitravel being used by businesses to tout. The fact that the hotels you have added are always added to the top of the hotel list, use language out of an ad agency such as "Welcome to a golfer's paradise in the Valley of the Sun", and do not always follow the Wikitravel:Accomodation listings format (for starters, leave the city, state and zip code out, and note how URLs should be formatted) has raised some hackles. We WANT you to contribute, but not in a way that creates work for editors who must then go in and clean up your contributions. -- Ryan • (talk) • 15:36, 14 September 2007 (EDT)
All that said, Hyatt hotels are usually a good addition to almost any article (no, I'm not touting -- they're a major chain of upscale hotels).
Please don't delete these additions just because you don't like the way they're added. Fixing, re-ordering the listings makes more sense. --Evan 16:56, 14 September 2007 (EDT)
