As the summer drew to an end, Hyatt introduced its “Work From Hyatt” packages as it aimed to target individuals, couples, and families who have a need to combine work and relaxation in one place and away from the confines of home. At the time the program was rolled out, only around 25 properties were participating but by the beginning of November, almost 90 locations were participating.

Hyatt has now added a new, “Office for the Day” element to its Work From Hyatt offering as it moves to match the likes of Marriott and Hilton who have both been offering their rooms as offices for some time. As deals go (I’ve checked the prices) this looks like a good one, but it’s as a mattress run opportunity that this will appeal to a lot of TFM’s readership.

Hyatt’s Office for the Day option is available every day of the week at over 400 properties in the Americas. As things stand, the rate is being offered through 31 May 2021 but as with all things in the time of Covid, this end date may get extended.

Hyatt says that its Office for the Day package starts at $65 per day and includes a private guestroom with the conveniences of an office combined with the comforts and amenities of a premium hotel experience. In reality (as I’ll show in a moment), the cost of an Office for the Day booking can be considerably lower.

This is what guests can expect when they book an Office for the Day:

  • Standard guestroom from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with a workspace and high-floor rooms with a view upon availability, plus the option to upgrade
  • Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi internet access
  • 50% discount on self- or valet parking
  • 15% food and beverage discount and complimentary bottled water and a selection of coffee and tea in-room
  • Various in-room wellbeing offerings such as Headspace meditations via the World of Hyatt app, Exhale on Demand on guestroom TVs at participating Hyatt House and Hyatt Place hotels in the U.S., and Headspace meditation and mindfulness exercises on guestroom TVs at more than 200 participating Hyatt hotels
  • Access to hotel amenities such as the gym and pool, where available
  • Access to businesses facilities such as a printer, scanner, and fax machine, where available
  • Ability to use World of Hyatt points to redeem for an Office for the Day package
  • Flexible cancellation at no charge up to 24 hours before scheduled arrival

A key aspect of this to note is that all Hyatt Office for the Day bookings offer standard World of Hyatt in-hotel benefits which including earning points and elite night credits.

Most importantly, I’ve confirmed with Hyatt that all Office of the Day “stays” made between 1 January and 28 February 2021 will earn 3x points and double elite night credits courtesy of Hyatt’s Bonus Journey’s promotion.

If you’re tired of working from home and would like a change of scenery, there are some very good deals currently available for Office for the Day bookings but for most readers of this blog, I suspect the most interesting aspect of this is that you can use the Office for a Day rate to make your path to Hyatt Globalist status considerably cheaper than it may otherwise have been.

In a post yesterday, I explained how and why I’m mattress running my way to Hyatt Globalist status and then on to 4 suite night upgrades so if you want to find out what that’s all about that’s the post to read. For everyone who’s already very aware of what a mattress run is and who’s already considering making a bid for Hyatt Globalist status, here’s some good news: I’ve found Hyatt Office for the Day rates in major metropolitan areas from as low as $45 and, yes, that was for a February booking which would earn a World of Hyatt member 3x points and double elite night credits.

Here’s the $45 rate in the Chicago area:

Here’s a $59 rate near Austin:

Here’s a $59 rate at Miami Airport:

And although the following rates aren’t quite so cheap, here are two very good deals (by the area’s standards) near Los Angeles:

I cannot stress enough just how fantastic an opportunity this could be for readers to rack up a significant number of elite night credits (and quite a few redeemable points) at an incredibly low price.

Hyatt’s top-tier Globalist status was already made a lot easier to reach courtesy of Hyatt’s halving of the qualification requirements and the double elite night credits that the Bonus Journeys promotion offers. Now Hyatt has made it even cheaper than ever to earn its most coveted status.

You can book the Office for the Day rate via the usual Hyatt channels by using the special offer code “OFFICE”.

Bottom Line

For anyone looking for a break from working in the confines of their home, Hyatt’s Office for the Day promotion appears to offer the best value out of all the deals I’ve seen the major hotel chains offering (and by some distance). For those of us deeply immersed in the miles and point world and for whom the quest for great hotel status is a game we cannot resist, Hyatt’s Office for the Day offering is nothing short of manna from heaven.

  1. Can you do these Office for a Day stays without actually checking in/checking out? I’d love to do this kind of a run but have no intention to actually visit a hotel at this time.

    • I suspect that you’d have to check-in but, just as with any regular stay, the hotel will probabluy check you out at the end of your time even if you’re not physically there to check-out in person (you could probably check-out via the app too).
