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.

From 8:00 am CDT tomorrow, 25 March 2021, the following 10 hotels will be moving up to a new World of Hyatt award category:

  • The Hyatt Place Delano is moving from category 1 to 2
  • The Hyatt Place Fair Lawn/Paramus is moving from category 1 to 2
  • The Hyatt Place Palm Bay/Melbourne is moving from category 1 to 2
  • Hyatt Regency John Wayne Airport is moving from category 2 to 3
  • The Hyatt Regency Dharamshala Resort is moving from category 2 to 3
  • The Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico is moving from category 3 to 4
  • Hyatt House Nashville/Downtown-SoBro is moving from category 4 to 5
  • Mar Monte Hotel (part of The Unbound Collection) is moving from category 4 to 5
  • Park Hyatt Aviara is moving from category 5 to 6
  • The Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Bungalows is moving from category 5 to 6

At the same time, the Hyatt Place Houston Downtown will move down a category from category 3 to category 2.

Important To Know

  • All free night award bookings and Points + Cash bookings made before 8:00 am CDT tomorrow will follow the current Award Chart regardless of stay dates, even if the hotel is shifting to a higher award category.
  • Any free night award bookings and Points + Cash bookings booked on or after tomorrow, Thursday, 25 March at 8:00 am CDT will follow the new Award Chart.
  • Members who have existing award bookings as of 8:00 am CDT tomorrow for a night on or after Thursday, 25 March at Hyatt Place Houston Downtown, which is moving to a lower award category, will receive an automatic one-time refund on the point difference. Points will be refunded in members’ accounts starting Friday, 26 March.
  • Once changes go into effect tomorrow at 8:00 am CDT, any adjustments made to existing reservations will follow the terms of the new Award Chart.

Bottom Line

11 World of Hyatt properties will be moving award categories tomorrow morning with 10 properties moving up a category and 1 property moving down. The key takeaway from all of this is that if you have been considering making a reservation at one of the 10 properties that will be moving up a World of Hyatt award category in a few hours’ time, now is the time to make your booking(s).
