There haven’t been too many bonus points offers at Hyatt this year compared to previous years when we were borderline bombarded with G and other bonuses. Now, Hyatt has launched a limited time winter bonus offer of 1500 bonus Hyatt Gold Passport points for stays at Hyatt Summerfield Suites, AVIA, and Hotel Sierra properties. The promotion runs from November 22nd, 2011 to January 8th, 2012.

Now it is time to book some year end Hyatt stays. Hyatt is again having their 48 hour sale. You can save anywhere from 20% to 30% off of the Best available rate. Compared to AAA rates these sale rates are about 10% lower. These rates should show when doing a regular search. Alternatively, you can input C48HH11 code into the SPECIAL OFFER CODE-field.

This offer is valid for stays booked today and tomorrow for arrivals between November 29, 2011 and January 27, 2012. The only drawback is that these reservations are prepaid and non-refundable. Only use this offer if you have your plans set in stone.

Over the years the posting of Diamond Amenity and other bonus points have been erratic to say the least. Normally, I just wait until I have 5 to 10 stays to correct and then do them all over a phone call. Apparently Hyatt is now offering a 50% bonus if one needs to call and have the amenity points posting corrected. This is retroactive for stays from mid-October.

Sometimes it makes sense to choose airline miles instead of Hyatt points for stays. This especially when they have airline related bonuses going on and the stay is a one nighter. Diamond amenity never posts automatically when the airline miles are chosen. These needs to be posted manually by Hyatt GoldPassport customer “service”. Occasionally you might get a representative who is not aware of the fact that stays that are posted as miles are also eligible for Diamond amenity points. If that happens, the best way to correct the situation is to ask to speak with a supervisor. [click to continue…]

Hyatt American Airlines Promotion 1500 Aadvantage Miles Per Stay Up To 10 StaysHyatt Gold Passport and American Airlines are offering triple miles for Hyatt stay until January 15th, 2012. You can earn up to 15000 American Airlines miles and thus this promotion is capped at ten stays.

Remember that you need to sign up for the promo and choose American Airline miles instead of points when checking in/out. Quite often these still post as Hyatt Gold Passport points, and either a message to Hyatt Gold Passport customer service through the web or call is required to switch them to miles.

Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa Please note that Park Hyatt Maldives no longer accepts Hyatt stay certificates. They did when I wrote this piece back in October. Right now the choice is either points or cash.

Hyatt took over the former Alila property in Maldives back in May this year, and the property is in the process of being rebranded as Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa. I visited this property in August and cannot wait to go back sometime next year.

Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa Rate CardTheir regular rates start around $900 per night for the most basic villa. You can, however, stay there paying about a third of that.

Over the past few years, since I became Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond member, I have had in excess of 700 Hyatt stays ranging from limited service Hyatt Places to full service Grand and Park Hyatt’s.

Hyatt has several brands on their portfolio; Hyatt Place, Hyatt House (former Hyatt Summerfield Suites), Hyatt Regency, Grand Hyatt, Park Hyatt, Andaz and few others. There are rarely any upgrade opportunities at the Hyatt Places as they are mostly non-suite properties. Also Hyatt House (Hyatt Summerfield Suites) are all suite properties where [click to continue…]

Nor1Up-selling seems to be the norm for businesses nowadays. When was the last time you were booking an airline ticket, on an airline website, and weren’t offered some “valuable” extras?

Hyatt Regency Dubai Reservation Confirmation Screen Nor1Now hotels are doing this as well. Of the major chains that I personally frequent, Hilton and Hyatt have both implemented the technology from a company called Nor1 to offer customers ability to buy additional services or “waitlist” for space available upgrade at a price. Sometimes this is offered at the time of reservation, on the email confirmation, or when one is checking the reservation on the website. [click to continue…]
