World of Hyatt has launched a new bonus offer for stays at the loyalty program participating Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) hotels through March 2, 2020.
Members can earn 3,000 bonus points for each stay consumed during the promotional period if registered for this promotion by January 31. The Hyatt and SLH partnership has now extended to more than 300 hotels.
You can sign up for this offer on Hyatt’s website here.
You have to keep in mind that there are no benefits for World of Hyatt elite members that stay at SLH hotels. All World of Hyatt members are eligible for breakfast, space available one-category upgrade, and early/late check-in/out.
These SLH hotels are often 30% to 50% pricier if booked on Hyatt’s website compared to their own or 3rd party ones:
World of Hyatt can artificially boost their rather low number of hotels count (700) by including now 300 or so SLH hotels to the list of loyalty program participating. I would assume that most, if not all, SLH hotels (500) will become part of World of Hyatt.
This partnership for paying guests would be more worthwhile if these SLH hotels would provide elite member benefits too, and Hyatt would offer a price guarantee. SLH hotels, however, can be useful when redeeming points or free night certificates.
I have not stayed at SLH hotels under World of Hyatt because of the pricing and other issues listed above. Perhaps this bonus offer will sway me to try a few out.
