Hyatt deval Q:
If I use an anniversary cert to book a hotel that's now a cat 4 but will soon be a cat 5 and then later on I want to change the dates, will they let me still use the anniversary cert (i.e. did I lock in my ability to use the cert) or will they no longer accept it?
Title: Re: Hyatt question
Post by: Mocha on January 07, 2015, 08:48:32 PM

It depends on rep at hotel. I've stayed under people's accounts that were not diamond and I recieved the benefits. Don't see why Priceline should be different.

Update: I just tried changing the date of my anniversary night at Baha Mar which was a cat 4 that today became a cat 5 and the rep was unable to. Computer didn't let her and neither did a manager. Was just trying it out for fun, looks like it can't officially be done.

After doing some research I think this is incorrect. If a diamond is staying in the room regardless of how the rooms was paid for...Diamond benefits get extended to occupants of that room.

The keywords are the diamond is "staying in the room". The hotel does not have to extend diamond benefits if the diamond member doesn't show up

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.

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 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. :(

I booked a room with a free night and then emailed someone in the "Executive Office Administration" at the specific hotel about paying for a room upgrade. We agreed to a cash price to upgrade to a suite, but he told me that he modified my reservation in the hotel's internal system and that it won't show up online or by calling HGP and nor can he email me an updated confirmation. Even when I called the front desk at the hotel, they think I'm in a standard room.

Sounds like I shouldn't trust this guy. (No, I haven't paid the cash yet.)

I just called Hyatt and they confirmed that there are 2 separate reservations systems. The general one, and then each hotel's individual system. Rep said that if a hotel makes a change in their private system, it won't be reflected in the main system. So I guess it does make sense.

Theoretically but not a good idea unless it's your domestic partner (chase rule). Otherwise you're asking for A/A
This is no different than your average guy selling miles. A bit risky but wouldnt say your asking for an A/A.

Beginning March 1, members can extend their Diamond in-hotel benefits such as Regency Club or Grand Club access, free breakfast and late check out to family or friends when they transfer a free night stay using Hyatt Gold Passport points. By extending Diamond privileges to a members’ friends or family on an award stay, Hyatt is providing the warmest possible welcome and an extraordinary on-property experience.

Just call the diamond line and push 2 for customer service.
You get 50% more if they don't post it. So if it was a full service hyatt and you requested the points you will get 1500 instead of 1000. 750 instead of 500 at a HP

If the hotel has a Standard room available for cash purchase, then you might be able to try what TPG did (google/search for the post) where he called Hyatt and read them their own T&C that says if a Standard room is available, then it can be booked with points. Obviously points and free nights are different, but perhaps that method might work.

You must receive this offer from Hyatt and register by September 30, 2015. You will receive 3,000 Hyatt Gold Passport bonus points after your first Eligible Stay from June 1, 2015 through September 30, 2015. A maximum 3,000 bonus points may be earned, regardless of the number of nights completed during the offer period. For the purpose of this offer, an “Eligible Night” is defined as any night where a member is paying an Eligible Rate, as defined in the terms and conditions of Hyatt Gold Passport, except that stays at M life resorts do not count as Eligible Stays under this offer. Hyatt Gold Passport members will only receive Eligible Night credit for their room, regardless of the number of rooms paid. You must provide your Hyatt Gold Passport membership number at the time of check-in and choose points or miles for your stay. Hyatt Gold Passport will automatically track Eligible Nights when you provide your Hyatt Gold Passport membership number. Please allow two to three weeks after your stay for bonus points to be posted to your Hyatt Gold Passport account.

PUTPAC the hotel. Ask the front desk for the manager's email. I've been successful before, but I'm sure it doesn't always work. Could also be that HGP might have the email.

Find someone with suite upgrades who will book for you on a paid or C&P rate.

Do they really require a three night stay to upgrade to suite, as per their site? I'll be staying for two nights only. I am able to book the standard room for 20k points per night or P&C. When I called Hyatt they said I cant upgrade to a suite. Looking for any tips on how this can be done. I don't have platinum status. I will be transferring points from UR to Hyatt. This is for my honeymoon and it is a shabbos so a suite would be swell!
Thanks

So i can book a standard room for two nights for cash and then request an upgrade? who would I call? Hyatt reservations or the hotel itself? Do I need to first book the room for cash and have the points available for an upgrade? I would only transfer from UR to Hyatt if I knew i could get the upgrade.

Hi All,

So we're on the road and on the way to Baltimore. Looking to book 2 rooms for this weekend at the Hyatt Regency in Baltimore from tomorrow until Sunday. 15k points per room, or 229? It comes out to .015 (one and a half) cents per point. (I have hyatt points). Not a great deal? Is it better to pay with a sapphire and earn the double points.

Also, has anyone stayed here before? Any recommendations? Anyone know how to score an upgrade?

Thanks,
JD

You are not going to be earning much with the 2x when paying. It really depends if you have better redemption options for those points and/or you are going for status and want the nights.

Wow so im a noob, but I just ran into this problem today and I figured it was an old discussion on this thread or others, but maybe being that it was only brought up yesterday is indicative of it being a new problem (???)

I saw tons of rooms available on their website for points and was flabbergasted when the woman told me they didnt have the room I wanted available for cash and points. I assumed she was making it up, and was gonna huca but decided to check the forum first and there you have it... (I also asked her if I could book one night on strictly points and then the rest of the nights on C+P, and she said yea but i may be asked to switch my room - not quite sure what to make of that..)

Anyways so the moral of the story is that people here have experience that it is difficult to convince them to release a room to me on Cash and Points?

Another good tip is to google/use Hyatt's website to see where the Cat 1-4s are. If you're limiting yourself to 4-5 hours, then you're basically saying North/Central America, which should knock out many of the 1-4s to begin with. Find some that are in locations that interest you and then ask/research to see if the properties are actually nice/near activities in those cities.

If I have a few different free night award reservations from different accounts, can I combine them all to one ressy, so as not to have to check out and check back in?
No need to check in and out.
When you check in tell the hotel you have a few reservations and they will usually just let you stay in the same room the whole time.

I once had a minor issue with a Marriot in Prague. They told me they need the account holders passport before I check out. So to solve that issue I just never checked out and left the hotel.

If by "gc" he meant gift card, you're right, as those cannot be used in HKG.

I assumed if he's asking that "gc" referred to gift check, which can be used abroad, but will be converted at hotel exchange rate.

Indeed needed clarification. Was unaware of how gift checks worked but assumed that even if anything worked overseas it will be converted into local currency first.

Quote from: Lucky

I figured I’d post a quick reminder that 2014 Hyatt Diamond Suite Upgrade Awards expire at the end of February, which is next Saturday. The important thing to note is that you only have to make bookings using them by the expiration date, though the stay can be on a subsequent date. I still have one to redeem, so will have to figure out what to do with it.

Hyatt-DSU

If you have any left over, be sure to redeem them by next Saturday or they’ll disappear. Keep in mind that if you change your dates later, the Upgrade Awards technically can’t be transferred with the new reservation, so whatever you book with them has to be “set in stone” or you’ll risk losing them.

Any way to get a not expensive upgrade at PH nyc next week? I'm not diamond and I used sign up nights. When I called they said it be like $400 a night plus points.
Someone suggested adding a diamond member as a second guest and Upgrade at checkin or perhaps the diamond would call ahead and try to get an upgrade confirmed.
Would this work?

Sounds like any hotel work around. Have a diamond book it, call in, upgrade and make sure to mention that guest XYZ will arrive way before hand and needs to be able to check in without issues. I have done this several times albeit not with Hyatt.

It's already booked,  and I used Hyatt cc sign up bonus so I couldn't have a diamond book it, AFAIK
I was advised that at a high class five star like this, a twenty or fifty at check in would not help. After reading heads I'm beds I though it would but DDFers advised not at PH

When I upgraded with IHG it was also my reservation ( I had booked) and I added someone with high status to the reservation and had that person call in for the upgrade. It wasn't the norm but the hotel accepted it and upgraded the room. I would think that it is certainly worth a try.

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?

The 12K is for more than 2 guests.

Does anyone know if the extra charge is for kids also or just for extra adults?

Two free nights from signup bonus can be used at any Hyatt worldwide (minus the Residences), so yes you can use it at the Ziva/Zilara. DSUs can only be used on paid/C+P bookings, so you can't use it on the free nights.

I'm new to hyatt. I was wondering how people build enough points for stays without a credit cards sign up bonus. I know there was a 50k bonus that was targeted but I'm assuming that's not the way to do it.

Walter Brindell switched to Chicago.
I don't think Moira Merani was ever the GM, only an assistant.
I sent an email to Walter and he didn't respond. So went to Google real quick and saw that he moved to Chicago.

Googled around a bit more and came upon this post. Should've just checked DDF first.

I have 2 signup nights, 15k Hyatt points and many UR points, but I dont have Diamond status, only Plat. What would be the most cost efficient way to book? And, is it possible to transfer URs to a Diamond Member who has a DSU, book my first night with C&P and DSU through his account, and book the subsequent nights using my nights and C&P and stay in the suite?

If you have Diamond, they will hold the room for you as a points booking if you tell them the points are in the midst of being transferred. If you're not Diamond, you could try that. Not sure if they can actually convert it to a points booking, but also make sure you're holding the correct room type (standard) and watch out for cancellation policies.

But in my case, the certs aren't in the middle of being transferred. They're still about a month or two away. Ya, I would hold a standard room. I guess technically they would release it and immediately pick it back up as a points reservation and because there are no blackout dates, it would be available in inventory for points booking. Only downside is that they sometimes require a deposit, but as long as you don't mind temporarily paying it, don't see the downside.

While there are no blackout dates, hotels have plenty of shticky things to do to keep rooms from being bookable with points. Not sure if they released it it would go into points inventory. If you're Diamond, try getting them to hold it. When I've done it, they never gave me a deadline for how long the hold will last.

whats considered better a hyatt ziva or zilara?
Main difference is that Zilara is adults only. Should focus more on the destination you're interested in going to.

I had sent an email to Walter Brindel but he is back in Chicago (I know I should've read this thread more carefully). Moira was able to help us get an upgrade to a  deluxe room (basically a junior suite) for my wife's birthday and they comped wine and chocolate as well. Icing on the cake was free parking courtesy of parkwhiz.com  ;D.

Just wondering how people get around the second name when you use someone else's nights. How can both guests check-in? I know some resorts require the bracelet to show you are the guest. I am heading to Jamaica and have someone coming with me and want to make sure it is not an issue. Unlike Park Hyatt's etc where there is only a room.... they charge for day-passes etc to facility.

According to several Hyatt GP reps that I spoke to, that's not true. They claim that a hotel can decide to limit the amount of rooms available for booking under sign up nights, while a regular points booking can't be blocked out as long as a base room is available at revenue. Not sure if it's a case of DROPRs or if there's merit to what I was told on several different occasions.

Yes, but you'll need to get those points into your account before your stay.

the free sign-up nights generally go for $500 total. So that may pay for a better quality FL hotel. (i.e. Starwood) Plus you'll get SPG points for those stays...

Call them and tell the rep you need the points transferred as soon as possible because you need them to make a reservation. IME, the rep will tell you to email the form to his/her personal email address and they'll process it on the spot.

I faxed in the request to the number on the form and the points were transferred within an hour....and it was a Sunday.

I wanted to post that I was able to get a pretty nice upgrade at an award night at the PH Ny without any real status (just Hyatt Platinum). I had sent an email to Walter Brindel but he is back in Chicago (I know I should've read this thread more carefully). Moira was able to help us get an upgrade to a  deluxe room (basically a junior suite) for my wife's birthday and they comped wine and chocolate as well. Icing on the cake was free parking courtesy of parkwhiz.com  ;D.

I looked up the website. How and where did you get free parking?

They still will have a rate for it and can offer it to you at that rate. They will hope someone cancels or doesn't show up, but if that doesn't happen, they can move someone to another hotel if they are completely booked.

Interesting. I just called the Diamond line about a hotel that I saw sold out online. They said if the "Diamond guaranteed available rate" was available, I would be able to see it online. If it says "sold out" that means that hotel doesn't offer the guaranteed rate.

Sounds like such BS. Do you have experience doing what you said can be done?

Just noticed something even weirder. I earned points on the hold that was put on my cc when I checked in even though it eventually dropped. Between 5ppd on the authorization (~$1,200), the additional 30% for being Diamond and the 1,000 for turning down the welcome amenity (wasn't Kosher), I earned close to 10,000 for the stay. And that's not including the 5,000 that I earned for the eligible nights towards the current promo or the 3ppd that I got for actual charges that I put on my Hyatt cc.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I recently booked a hotel for my parents using my Hyatt points (I'm Diamond) and they somehow added my Dad's HGP# to the reservation and he earned points for it. It was a strictly points booking not C+P. It shows an eligible spend of $615.70 which I'm guessing is the actual room rate for the 4 nights.

Anyone else ever have something like that?

Anybody know what my rights are for this situation: Bought Presidential Suite for Park Hyatt Hyderabad last week for $137++/night when it glitched from it's normal $1700++/night for future travel. It's a CAT2 so 8k/night for standard king. Just got an email yesterday I believe from PHH and they said blah blah blah mistake blah sorry, and we will give you park standard with view room in lieu of this error. what? I'd rather use the points in this case. What are my options as my cc has already charged. I think that most companies have to accept it by law. I did it last year with the Presidential Suite at Grand Hyatt Santiago for $37 total for 6 nights with the Amex Fine Hotels glitch. How is this any different?  Thoughts?

Best of luck in the Indian courts.

You win some, you lose some. If this was a U.S. hotel, they might honor the mistake or give you a big discount to avoid a lawsuit and/or social media backlash. Never know, but a hotel in India is unlikely to do the same.

I figured the same, but I was hoping that since I bought from the US that we would have some kind of consumer protection.  My thoughts are to write up a nice response that states that I want to create a long lasting relationship with Hyatt, explain the reason for travel (anniversary), and how I will not be recommending Hyatt to friends and family should they not honor the rate.  Doesn't hurt to still try.  If they deny the request, I should still have the option to cancel as I am not getting what I purchased.

How long is the stay? At a discount of over $1,550 per night, they're probably not going to care much that you aren't going to recommend Hyatt to some friends. (And if you did the same thing last year, the odds are good that your account has been noted thusly.)

Just to clear things up, Amex had the glitch for the last deal in Chile, not Hyatt.  Hyatt was definitely compensated by them.  I was using this as an example of booking in the US for travel abroad and it being honored.  So, this would technically be the first situation with Hyatt directly.

When I tried checking in they said that I can't check in without the AH and they will charge me rack rate. They said there's a note in the account to make sure he checks in. Otherwise the hotel won't get reimbursed from gold passport.
 I begged/ negotiated to no avail. After an hr we made up that they will give me a reduced rack rate and if I have the points in MY account by the time I checked OUT then, they can use points, otherwise it'll be the rack rate.
After I checked in on those terms and the account holder called the hotel on my behalf they called me to say they will make a one time exception and honor this reservation.
Again I spoke to many people that didn't have this issue but YMMV.

I'm surprised hotels ever do this, since it's such an obvious scam opportunity. With the way hotels and airlines have cracked down on--and otherwise devalued--their programs, one would think hotels would have a strict "no person with status, no status benefits" rule.

its not a scam. Hyatt allows a diamond to bring a guest of honor and enjoy the diamond status even without the member there.

i don't know what you said to them or how you checked in. But what you have to do is say yes the account holder is on his way his flight got delayed. There is nothing wrong with someone on the reservation checking in. Again I don't have experience with SUNs but I don't see why the hotel should treat it different than points bookings.

if i had to guess it is probably because the AH was asking questions of a hyatt rep during the booking process how to book for a friend and they put the note in the account.

i wasn't referring to his situation I was responding to you saying that people use it to gain status when they don't have status. Look at what I quoted.

P.S. yes technically what he did was a "scam" as you call it. But it's within the rules. The rules say that you can add an additional guest and that he could check in.

That is what this forum is about. It's about finding ways to travel better for a better price. If you keep having an issue with everything everybody here does that is not 100% straight then why are you even on this forum to begin with? Just to berate all the members?

It's not an "additional guest" if there's only one guest — i.e., if the person with status has no intention of showing up. Again, let's be serious here.

could be a better value depending on the category. Also if you need stay credit you will only get it with c and p and not all points. Finally  until the end of the month you cannot use a DSU on all points bookings only on cash and c and p.

I booked Kaui Grand Hyatt 2 free nights rewards stay and need to cancel last minute and the best they are willing to offer is me paying $250 for the last minute cancellation. Is there a way to get to not pay? Can I ditch the reservation? without fee? Can I add someone as a guest to use the points for me? Any ideas help. ( I am a discoverist)

This is obviously annoying, but I'm interested to see how it plays out considering...

1) It seems hard for them to prove the main guest never showed up (are they going to review security footage for each complaint?)
2) Ultimately removing the ability for a second guest to check in would be terrible customer service. I would imagine the vast majority of second guest check-ins are from people actually staying together.

These are in addition to anniversary night and brand explorer awards (CAT14RM365).

As background, we are each Chase CC holders (old version).

Any idea what award code CHRM2 means?
did you find out? I have same thing

Never figured it out. Lucky's free night for spending $15k on the WOH CC showed up with that code, but I have the cheaper version of the card.

Which version to you have?

If I book a hotel (Hyatt) using 1.5c/point with Sapphire Reserve, will I still get status benefits, or does it need to be booked on Hyatt?

For a stay I am looking at, it seems that I could use 15k Hyatt or about 13k Chase points. If it will cost me my chance at an upgrade/late checkout, then it might not be worth it to book through Chase (I might just pay cash in that case). Status is low tier (discoverist), so not earth-shattering either way.

If a hotel has standard points rooms available, does that mean they have Chase Cat 1-4 free nights as well?

My free night is tied up on another booking right now, which I might cancel should a different property have availability, but I am concerned that cancelling my booked night might not put it back into inventory.

call Hyatt and you can reserve a premium suite for double the points per night. But it’s not guaranteed to be a 2 BR suite and most likely won’t be a 2 BR suite but call to check what it is

I'm an Explorist. I stayed in a Hyatt regency on points and was told that since it was on points, parking is free. Before staying in the Bellevue in Philadelphia, I called to confirm that I would get free parking with an award night, and each rep i spoke to said yes. ( I had called multiple times about a different issue.)
When I got to the hotel, they said this perk is only for Globalists and charged me the 35 dollars parking fee. A manager confirmed that parking is not included for Explorists. When checking out, I mentioned to the clerk that I was charged for parking even though it was award night, and she said she would fix it for me and she took it off.

Anyone know the official rules? The website seems to confirm that parking should not be free. Any other experiences?

Status goes by when you check in. However if you have a GOH and the guy who gifted it to you lost status it will probably still be honored as the guest of honor code won’t be removed

Anyone know how Globalist breakfast works at PHNYC these days? Want to order for tomorrow but they made the process complicated as it seems the process has changed and no one is clear on what it is. Used to be you selected from the menu and they ordered you breakfast but now they keep saying different things. Here are some of the responses I received:

- Was told by one rep they no longer have affiliation with My Most Favorite Food, and all orders must be for Milk N Honey directly instead of through hotel and hotel will pick up and pay
- Was told by another rep, they have relationships with My Most Favorite Food, Great American Health Bar, and Milk N Honey and we can get $45 per person reimbursed as we have to order for delivery and pay ourselves and show receipt at checkout
- Was told by another rep we can get an entree and drink pre person and hotel orders and picks up

Has anyone stayed in the past month and can share the current process?

Anyway to get a Hyatt confirmation number for a reservation booked thru UR portal? I doubt I will get the stay credit but would be nice if I could get any type of room upgrade (I'm explorist)

The new changes can affect Hyatt drastically IMO.
Looking now at a cat 7 that will go to Cat 8 and on top of that there is going to be peak pricing.
That will increase the rate from 30k to 45k! Per night.
Time to burn...

If you book a hotel before 3/22 and the category goes down but it is a date subject to peak pricing, would that reduce the amount of points you get refunded?

I want to book a hotel for 4 nights, but one night in middle (shabbos, actually) doesn't have award availability. What would happen if I were to book the first two days on points, the 3rd with cash, and the 4th with an award night? Would I have to check in and out three times?

No, just call them to combine it.

What if they're different room types? Do you think booking a suite one of the days will increase chances of an upgrade?

Checking in about a Globalist making a reservation for a friend.

My brother is Globalist, and he niece is going on a honeymoon. He'd like to book the room under his account so they get club lounge access and other perks associated.

He'd only do this on a rare occasion.

Can he add the his niece to the reservation, and they get the benefits?

I sometimes stay under my brother's Marriott Titanium account, and he adds me as a 2nd guest while chatting on the app during check-in without a problem, and benefits are extended to me.

Is there a limit on the amount of points you can transfer from one member to another?

I am looking to book a night at the Hyatt Place in Page, AZ but I only see rooms for 12k for months. Is there a way to get a room for 8k without it showing on their website?

It's a category 3, why would it be 8k?

I saw Kivabb post in his TR that he got the Hyatt House for 8k and that was a category 4. Do they have special deals sometimes where they drop the standard rates?

Never heard of that, I'd be really interested to hear if there's such a concept

“Hyatt House Emeryville - Travelling with 11, needing space to eat, lots of fridge and freezer space, and not breaking the bank can be a challenge. Taking 4 standard rooms anywhere peak season is very expensive. Besides, that wouldn’t allow us a kitchen or living area for the family time to eat together and schmooze at the end of a long day. The suite rooms are usually double the price and we would need 2. That can easily be $550-600 a night. The VRBO’s and AirBNB’s usually have those steep fees that don’t make it worthwhile for a few night stay. Plus, there’s just something about the hotel that make it part of the fun experience. So, I have come to discover Hyatt House which many times has 2 queens in private room, Large L shaped couch with Queen pull out bed (and room for someone younger on remaining couch), full size fridge/freezer kitchen, as well as seating area. They also usually have free breakfast to stock up on fruits in the morning, cereals, as well as paper supplies. In order to be comfortable, we need 3 of those Hyatt House Suites that can also run $200 each a night. But many times, you can pick up at 8K points per night (x 3) and that’s what we did. In San Francisco, we stayed in a beautiful Hyatt-House-Emeryville right over the bridge and a 10-minute drive to minyanim. We spend 2 nights here and it was great.”

Hyatt concierge:

"Since Miraval is handled a little differently from most of our Hyatt properties. I would recommend that you call our designated line for Resort & Luxury at 866-792-3395. We can better assist you there when it comes to Miraval Berkshire."

Thank you @JuryDuty.  My Hyatt Concierge lazily answered me with a "they must not have any availability" ....
