Not as long as you cancel within the cancellation period. Some hotels 2 weeks, some 72 hrs, some 24.....
PH MLE has up to 60 days I think.

Does Chase UR transfer to Hyatt instantly?
Anyone have any thoughts or comments on the Hyatt's in the city? looking at W or Westin... Is the wonderful room any good?  And Can I call up and book a better room with points (like SPG allows) or is it only the lowest tier?

I have tons of UR so i'd rather save SPG points.

I think if you would've gone through this question by question you would've gotten some answers by now. That being said, let me try and answer what I can:

1. UR>Hyatt transfers instantly
2. I've heard good things about the Andaz 5'th (and Park Hyatt if you wanna splurge)
3. Not sure about booking a better room with points, but if you're willing to do C+P you can probably find a diamond member that would be willing to use a DSU so you'd get a suite.

Thanks. Reading the Hyatt site, it said andaz and park Hyatt require 3 night minimum award stay. Is there a way around? I want 1 night

Maybe the was for suites.
Is there a thread where people sell sign up nights? I think I'll get a Hyatt on my next chase app.

I just booked 3 nights in the Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall Jamaica,
they told me on the phone that it's 25,000 a night plus 12,000 for an additional person,
So I said ok and they transferred me to someone else to make the actual reservation, that lady told me it's 25,000 a night and she didn't mention anything about the 12,000 for an additional person, so she only deducted 75,000 points from my account and I checked the reservation and it says it's for 2 adults!

Is there a chance that they might use additional points from my account once they realize it? or i'm good to go?

I haven't seen anywhere that they charge extra for additional guests.

Maybe it is something to do with the all-inclusive aspect.

The 12K is for more than 2 guests.

Yes it's all inclusive, and thanks Dan for clarifying that.

Is Hyatt  Cash + Points a Net Rate that already includes the taxes or is it  tax exclusive and you will have to pay extra for local taxes and fees?

I stayed at 2 different Hyatt Hotels in UAE and while at first hotel the Cash+Points rate already included taxes and i didn't have to pay anything extra. The second hotel charged me 30% extra for taxes and fees for cash part of my bill.

Also, is it normal to be charged $20 for 10 min of local phone calls? I was under the impression that local calls should be free. :(

You have to pay taxes on top of the the rate. Pone calls can cost $20.
