World Of Hyatt & SLH Partnership Widens: 56 Additional Properties Added – Now 110 Hotels Worldwide

Since December 6, 2018, World of Hyatt members can earn points, elite tier night credits and use their points/awards at select Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) and Hyatt just added 56 additional properties to the list of partners.

Small Luxury Hotels of the World has more than 500 properties worldwide but only a fraction of those (110 now) are participating  in the Hyatt partnership.

You can access Hyatt’s page for SLH partnership here.

Here are the World of Hyatt member benefits at SLH hotels:

  • Complimentary continental breakfast
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Early check-in 12:00pm (based on availability at check-in)
  • Late check-out 2:00pm (based on availability at check-in)
  • One category room upgrade (based on availability at check-in)

There is no difference on benefits offered for status versus non-status members of World of Hyatt program. Only breakfast and WiFi are guaranteed. Upgrade, early check in and late check out are all based on availability.

Conclusion

I like having more options now to book hotels at sometimes exotic locations where no Hyatt’s are available.

The downside is that the SLH pricing on Hyatt’s website is way higher than through the hotel directly or various OTA’s such as Orbitz. The stay won’t be qualifying if you book it directly with SLH or through any other channel and the only benefits from booking through Hyatt would be the breakfast, an upgrade (if available) as well as the stay credit/points. I highly recommend to compare rates properly before booking and to outweigh if the premium pricing is worth the benefits. Many of the SLH hotels are also available through Virtuoso or Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts with the associated benefits.

Seems that members will only earn points for the room rate (up to three rooms) and nothing for the incidentals. Elite members will earn their bonus. No additional elite benefits apply for SLH stays no matter which status level.

These are relevant excerpts (I suggest to read the entire T&C following the link above):

To earn or redeem World of Hyatt points or enjoy any other World of Hyatt benefits at a Participating SLH Property (collectively, “SLH Benefits”), you must be a World of Hyatt Member in good standing and book your stay at a Participating SLH Property through Hyatt Booking Channels.  Only World of Hyatt Members may book stays at Participating SLH Properties through Hyatt Booking Channels.  Stays at Participating SLH Properties booked through any means or channels other than Hyatt Booking Channels are not eligible for SLH Benefits (even if stays at Hyatt hotels booked through such other means or channels might qualify for World of Hyatt benefits). …

A Member will earn one (1) credit for a Tier-Qualifying Night in the Program for every night that the Member (i) stays at a Participating SLH Property; (ii) books the stay through a Hyatt Booking Channel, (iii) either pays an Eligible Rate or redeems a Free Night Award; and (iv) associates his or her valid Program membership number with the reservation at the time of reservation (each an “Eligible SLH Night”).

Members will also earn five (5) Base Points for each whole U.S. dollar or U.S. dollar equivalent paid for an Eligible Rate during his or her stay at a Participating SLH Property (“Eligible SLH Spend”). Members will not earn points on any spend that is not Eligible SLH Spend. Without limiting the preceding sentence, no charges at any SLH property, or any venue or outlet associated with such property, will qualify as Eligible Incidental Charges or Eligible Non-Stay Charges for purposes of the Program nor will any meeting or event hosted at any SLH property count as a Qualifying Event for purposes of the Program.

A Member must associate his or her Program membership number with the applicable reservation (at the time of reservation) to receive SLH Benefits in connection with Eligible SLH Spend; only the Member directly associated with the Eligible SLH Spend will earn Program credit for such activity. Points for a single reservation may not be shared by more than one Member. A Member may earn points on Eligible SLH Spend (s)he pays for up to three (3) rooms per night (Member’s room and two (2) additional rooms) within the same Participating SLH Property. (The Member must be a registered guest and occupy at least one of the rooms. The Member will earn Base Points for Eligible SLH Spend on each of the room rates, but the Member will only earn Tier-Qualifying Nights for the one (1) room (s)he actually occupies.)

Members cannot opt to earn benefits with any third party (such as Partner Loyalty Points with a participating airline, M life Rewards Tier Credits with MGM’s M life Rewards program, or other point substitutes) as a result of Eligible SLH Spend in lieu of World of Hyatt points.

Members who have obtained an elite tier in the Program and are entitled to earn Bonus Points on qualifying purchases will earn those bonuses on the Eligible SLH Spend. Such bonuses will be awarded as Bonus Points. …

BENEFITS FOR WORLD OF HYATT MEMBERS STAYING AT PARTICIPATING SLH PROPERTIES

When spending an Eligible SLH Night at a Participating SLH Property, Members will receive certain in-hotel benefits as specified here. Those benefits are subject to change and an updated list of the benefits will be posted on that site.

Please note Members who book a stay at a Participating SLH Property through Hyatt Booking Channels are not eligible for benefits of SLH’s Invited loyalty program.

Please also note that the In-hotel Benefits provided to Members when they stay at a Hyatt hotel or resort are not provided to Members staying at Participating SLH Properties. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and as noted above, please note that the Globalist benefit of a waived resort, destination or facility fee when paying an Eligible Rate is not valid at Participating SLH Properties.
