Back in November, Hyatt launched a promotion in which it offered 1,000 AAdvantage Miles per night for stays at select Hyatt resorts, and now that that offer has ended (it ended on 4 April), Hyatt is back with a bigger and better (albeit targeted) deal - earn 1,000 AAdvantage Miles per night at hundreds of World Hyatt properties around the world.
Hyatt has launched a new points sale in which it's offering World of Hyatt members a 25% discount on the regular price of points through to the end of April. As Hyatt points sales go, this one isn't too bad and used correctly, could save you quite a bit of money.
A couple of weeks ago, Hyatt announced that a total of eleven of its properties would be changing award categories this month and that award bookings at ten of those properties would soon be costing more. Tomorrow morning is when these changes kick in so if you need to book an award at a property that's moving up a category, now is the time to book it.
Hyatt has been offering a 500 point bonus/night to World of Hyatt members who stay at the newest properties in its portfolio for some time, but the hotelier has now (temporarily) doubled that offer to 1,000 points in honor of the opening of its 1,000th property - the Alila Napa Valley.
Back in October, twelve Hyatt properties moved award categories, Hyatt confirmed that it would be introducing peak and off-peak award pricing from July 2021, and we were told that a further four Hyatt properties would be moving award categories this month. Now, in a new update, Hyatt has said that a further 7 properties will be move award categories in a couple of weeks' time taking the total number of properties moving award categories to 11.
Back in December 2019, Hyatt announced that it would be introducing peak and off-peak pricing to the World of Hyatt program but alongside that news, the hotelier made a further announcement that got a little lost among the noise generated by the award chart devaluation and the pandemic that followed shortly thereafter.
Hotel elite status can be both vastly overrated and extremely useful depending on which level and which program we're taking about and people's opinions can vary quite significantly. But, as a rule, having status is better than not having status at all so a lot of people reading this blog will go to varying degrees of effort to maintain their hotel status from year to year. But wouldn't it be nice not to have to renew your status year in, year out?
Hyatt has now announced details of its new global promotion which is set to take over when the current crop of great deals ends on Sunday. The new Hyatt Bonus Journeys promotion will run from 1 March through 15 June and will offer guests bonus points for every two qualifying nights as well as the chance to earn a free night certificate.
The World of Hyatt has been offering bonuses of up to 30% in its current points sale since the middle of January but tomorrow is the last day to take part. If you need to top up an account or if you can still make the most of Hyatt's 25% rebate on award bookings (which ends on Sunday), this may be a sale worth considering.
Before this year, the last hotel promotions that I genuinely looked forward to were IHG's Accelerate promotions which had all but fizzled out by the end of 2018. Since then, a lot of the promotions that hoteliers have been publishing have been boring and pedestrian but Hyatt's performance in the second half of last year now has me eager to find out what more it has in store.
