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 must post a price

OT, how do qoute a post within a post like you did above?

You can nestle the quote tags, as follows:

[qoute ]    << Begin quote 1
[quote ]    << Begin quote 2
first quote test
[/quote ]   << End quote 1
second quote text
[/quote ]   << End quote 2


note, for the quote tag to work you should remove the space between the e of quote and the closing bracket ]

I believe your end quote 1 and 2 should be switched

Correct, but really, it's the same difference (since they're an identical tag.

I spoke to 2 Hyatt CSRs. Both of them told me that the free award nights from the credit card promo must be used (not booked) by the expiration date. Also, if you try to book online using your free award night, the system will not allow you to book beyond the expiration date.

I have 2 Hyatt / Andaz / Park Hyatt, etc nights available.
« Reply #49 on: January 15, 2012, 02:11:43 PM »
These are from the Chase credit card sign-up last year.

I have 2 nights still available.
Must be used by 2/29/12 (not reserved but used)
These are non-transferable but...I've sold them before & haven't had a problem.
I add the guests name to the reservation for early check-in & all is good.
Thanks! :)

To use a Suite Upgrade Award, the reservation needs to be booked under the account that was granted the award. So you can try to cancel and re-reserve under that account. Unless you're trying to use status / earn miles from one account and use the upgrade from another, which won't work.

But note that this thread is about Free Night Awards, not the suite upgrades.

When I call to book my 2 free nights (from CC bonus )  for someone else Hyatt told me that only point reservations can be booked for someone else but not the 2 free nights. Is this true? I don't want to book someone else and then have problems when they try checking in.

Book it for yourself and add them to the reservation.

Is that known to work? And they can check-in without me?

To both your questions: Reportedly yes (I have no experience with this).

Here's some advice from 2 experiences:  These Chase Award Nights are NOT transferable.  The T&C's are very clear about that.  In DEC 2011 I booked 2 nights in NYC with my Chase Award Nights for me & added my friend who would be arriving before me to the reservation.  I never showed up & the front desk never asked for my ID.  My friend checked-in, presented his credit card & all was good.  Last week I booked 2 nights for a friend in LA with his name added as a guest who would arriv earlier.  Luckily I was in the area because the hotel insisted on ID of Award Night awardee.  So I was able to present my ID while they swiped his credit card.  It can go either way depending on how astute the front desk folks are....IMHO.
