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

beat me to itI mistakenly thought the vendome is 'inspire'.

If I use UR points out of a Hyatt acct with 60 days Diamond challenge, what kind of room will I get? Perhaps I can use only 2 rooms per night.

You would not get suites. But if you use 33k a night to get a suite that might work for 2 rooms depending on how many people you are. but you maybe better off just paying for a standard room and using an upgrade and collecting points

Not that I'm looking to sell, but you must name a price.
$240 per room up to 12. I'd pay more for a suit.

reg. rate is close to $1000/night or $12,000 for the whole stay....

What kind of suite comes for 33k ur pts? might be an option

You'd originally be booked into a standard room, but you'd almost assuredly be upgraded to a park deluxe. Additionally, depending on availability, you may be upgraded to a park suite as a Diamond.

What makes you think you can only use 2 rooms per night?

It's not terribly large by US standards, but in Paris its relatively pretty big.

In any case, your most likely going to have kids sleeping on coach/floor with 2 rooms.

I'm more worried about space than beds.

You'll definitely have enough space for 2 adults and 5 kids in 2 park suites.

All relative. 1 suite and 2 rooms out of vouchers is both cheaper and better. I also hope to get upgraded as a Hyatt Diamond (via challenge). What would be awesome is if these stays (certs) count towards status.

Except for diamond certs, they do need basic room availability.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Yes, need for space is all relative. Some people can't go to the PHP without getting the Imperial Suite :P but I figured if your trying to make it work, it may be easier to score two suites.

They don't count, AFAIK.
