A hearing into allegations of unfair labor practices filed against the Hyatt Regency Baltimore began late Monday after hours of ultimately fruitless discussion about settling the complaint. National Labor Relations Board attorneys began their case against the hotel by describing the situation as a "predictable pattern" of "unlawful" management responses to unionizing efforts by employees working with Unite Here, a union that represents employees in fields such as hospitality. "It's a classic nip-in-the-bud case," said Sean R. Marshall, a senior trial attorney for the board.

The Maryland Economic Development Corp. expects to fall short next year on payments to investors who bought the bonds that funded the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay, a state-owned golf resort hotel and conference center on the Eastern Shore. Known as default, a failure to meet bond payments may increase investor scrutiny of MEDCO, a company created by the General Assembly to aid economic development throughout Maryland, experts say, but it will not affect the state's credit rating.

Some of the most influential people in sports labor and management will be in town today as the Sports Lawyer Association opens its 30th annual conference at the Hyatt Regency. Nearly 400 are expected to attend - including high-ranking executives from the NFL, Major League Baseball, NHL and NBA - to hear speakers and panel discussions on a variety of legal issues at the three-day meetings. "With all those leagues represented, that's what make it so special," said locally-based agent Tony Agnone, who is serving as the conference's program chairman.

The state-owned Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay resort in Cambridge continues to deplete a reserve fund to cover its semiannual debt payments because it is not making enough money. The state withdrew $2 million from the reserve June 1, cutting the fund's balance nearly in half to $2.3 million, according to a June 4 letter to the Maryland Economic Development Corp., which owns the golf resort hotel and conference center on the Choptank River. MEDCO financed the hotel's construction in 2002, issuing more than $120 million in tax-exempt revenue bonds, which are designed to be paid for out of the revenue a project creates.

Nelson, visiting Baltimore from Long Island, N.Y., with his wife, Patricia J. Brasley, who is attending an Arthritis Foundation Convention.

After spending three decades at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore, Kevin Hux eagerly joined efforts this past year to unionize his workplace. "I joined this union to have some kind of voice and be protected," said Hux, 55, who started in housekeeping shortly after the Inner Harbor hotel opened and now sets up tables for conventions and receptions. Because of staffing cuts, Hux said, he now shoulders tasks that three workers would have handled several years back. Hux and other employees have been working with organizers from Unite Here, which represents hospitality workers and has embarked on a national campaign aimed at unionized and nonunionized Hyatt hotels.

You can say this about Hyatt: It keeps its properties fresh. I was looking back at the different concepts that have populated the Hyatt Regency Baltimore on Light Street since 1981. Who remembers Berry & Elliott's, the upper-story predecessor to now-bygone Pisces? You'd have to be a real old-timer to remember the Trellis Garden, the original name for the third-floor dining facility that eventually became Bistro 300. The name remains the same - and, really, who could improve on Bistro 300?

Unite Here — a labor union trying to organize workers at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore — gathered outside the hotel Tuesday to publicize a federal agency's decision to take the company to trial over alleged unfair labor practices. The National Labor Relations Board issued its complaint this month, alleging that Hyatt Regency managers "interrogated employees about their union activities," began "invoking harsh discipline" when employees arrived late to work and fired four people this year as part of that campaign.

Providing genuine hospitality is the goal of all employees at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore on the Inner Harbor, no matter their job title. Zachery Quarles' area of expertise is banquet services, where he has worked since the hotel opened 30 years ago. "I really enjoy my customers," Quarles said. He added that he also enjoys his employer: "The Hyatt stands out. " Responding to the WorkplaceDynamics survey, employees said that they feel empowered and heard, and that the hotel's culture fosters independent decision-making.

You might expect winter on the Eastern Shore to be slow. I know I did. So even though it was Presidents Day weekend, I told my husband that the holiday wouldn't be a hindrance to a quick two-day trip to the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay, a resort I've been meaning to visit for a while. Plus, I said confidently, Bay Bridge traffic would be a breeze compared with summer. We'd get a great rate — the Hyatt was offering a promotion with rooms starting at $99 a night. It's a huge resort, so we'd likely have at least some portion of it to ourselves.

What's the deal? Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Resort in Cambridge has a "Spring Fever" rate starting at $129 per night for stays Sunday through Thursday. The rate is $199 for Friday and Saturday. Children under age 18 stay free. What's the savings? Hotel rates can be squishy. For example, the Hyatt Chesapeake Bay has a "Mid-Atlantic Winter" escape that's about $179 per night for a midweek stay. So this is a $50 savings off that rate. I found regular weekend rates ranging from $299-$449 per night.
