Topic Wiki

There are two different types of hyatt nights. Sign Up Nights (referred to as "SUN"s) and anniversary nights. The sign up nights are from when you sign up for the hyatt credit card. The anniversary night are given to you if you keep the credit card after the first year. You get one anniversary night every year. The sign up nights can be used for any hyatt hotel in the world on any date where a Standard Room is available. The anniversary nights can only be used in hyatt hotels categories 1-4 (Notable category 4 hyatt hotels: Hyatt regency mission bay, San Diego Ca. Andaz peninsula papagayo, Costa Rico.). Obviously the sign up nights are more valuable as they can be used in any hotel worldwide. The way somebody would book this night for you is they would put you as a second guest on the reservation. It is not recommended to combine nights between 3 different accounts or more. Or 2 accounts that none is yours. Obviously any reservation from a diamond account is more valuable since you will get the benefits as a second guest.

Suite Upgrades:

When you do the hyatt diamond challenge you get 4 suite upgrades. (For that matter a diamond member will get 4 suite upgrades every year). In order to complete the diamond challenge you must stay 12 nights in 60 days. There are people who will book you a room under their account and then use their diamond suite upgrade for your reservation. The reason why somebody would do this is simple. They want to complete the diamond challenge, therefore they will give you a diamond suite upgrade to get nights under their account and complete the challenge.  Diamond suite upgrades CANNOT be transferred to another account.
Diamond suite upgrades can only be used for a cash or cash and points reservation. They cannot be combined with any free nights or full point nights. Diamond suite upgrades are subject to availability of the suite being available. You can transfer hyatt points between accounts, though you must fill out the form on hyatt's website. People have reported it taking under 24 hours for the points to be transferred.

C+P show up on the website, when available; and it will tell you if not available. And if a Diamond member were to book for you you'd get all the Diamond benefits listed on the Hyatt website.

Per forum rules both buyers and sellers most post a price

Second, wasn't the offer for TWO free nights? How did you get 6?

Maybe he got 3 Hyatt CCs?

(Mods: This discussion should probably be moved to CC.)

I mean, maybe he, (and for example) his wife, and his child signed up.

Or maybe he got two cards with 3 nights each (due to this glitch), but that makes the 2/29/2012 expiration even more mysterious.

This sounds pretty impossible. First off the free nights may not have black out dates, however there has to be availability for that type of award which can be difficult at times. Second, wasn't the offer for TWO free nights? How did you get 6?
David, not sure what part sounds impossilbe.  Signed up w/2 other family members, got 2 nights each.  Award nights indicate "no black-out dates" and you're saying "...may not have black out dates..."  What does that mean?  Anyhow, seems nobody knows of a current secondary market for these...

Thanks everyone! :)

You're sure your free nights expire on 2/29/12?

AFAIK they expire after a year.

(Was the Hyatt card promo even offered last feb?)
Yes the cards were offered JAN 2011.  Mine were all activated late 1/2011.  So 1 year after 1st billing comes up to 2/29/2012.
Dan has wrote high marks on the Andaz in Hollywood so if I have to we'll do Staycation here in LA but I'd rather barter the rooms for $$$ which is more useful right now.  Thank you. ;D

Dan, have you been there?  Park Hyatt in Carlsbad looks AWESOME from their website.  We have thought of that & Legoland so close by but I'm almost thinking that place is too nice.  I'd hate for my 10, 8 & 5 year olds to inconvenience other guests as they swim, hoot & holler!  That is a valid alternative however.

I checked availability at the Andaz on Wall Street in NYC & their availability from 12/28-1/2.
Pre-pay price is $304 a night for week & $391 for FRI/SAT/SUN.  Regular rate is: $335 & $450.

In case anyone is interested.... :D

Slightly OT: I stayed at the Andaz 5th ave property and was duly impressed.

Dan, thanks!  I just went through your post and you had a pix of "adult pool" which lends me to believe there's a kids pool too!  So, I think you sold me on it!  Maybe we'll make the 90 minute trip down there for 2 nights!  Thank you again! ;D
