I have had experience both ways. In China they wouldn't give my brother the diamond amenity until o showed up. In a lot of hotels in the US I have successfully booked people reservations and they got the benefits and amenitys.

I have a Hyatt award reservation under my name and my wife has Platinum status. I tried to book new reservation under her name and cancel mine but the rooms we need are no longer available. Any advice as what I can do to benefit from her status under my reservation? Will adding her name onto my reservation help? Thanks.

Nope
I know it can help by adding a diamond, so I don't see why doing it with a platinum would be any different.

If diamond member is staying in the room it works. At least it should as per policy.

Do I just add name to reservation or do I stick in her number as well?

Thanks!

If I book a room with C&P and you cancel it, are there any fees to get my points and money back?

Not as long as you cancel within the cancellation period. Some hotels 2 weeks, some 72 hrs, some 24.....

Great. And if I pay with a Hyatt GC, will the funds go back onto the GC?
