Park Hyatt Paris (Chase 2 Free Nights) Question
« on: March 21, 2012, 10:57:20 AM »
Hi,

I have 2 free nights from Chase Credit Card and Just called to make a reservation for my parents in Park Hyatt Paris in May , and they told me that I must be present at the hotel to give it as a gift for them. Does anybody know if that is correct?

Thanks

Officially it's not transferable. Maybe PUTPAC a manager

Don't do that.  They're not officially transferable, though adding a guest does the trick.
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.

Dan,

Can you explain about adding a guest, adding a guest to the credit card? or Gold Card #?

I believe its not fool proof and I can't imagine something worse than being in another country and not being allowed to check-in..

If you're not comfortable with it then don't do it.  But no manager is going to override HGP policy like that.

Call Hyatt CS to add an additional guest onto the room.  They may ask if you'll also be there as they're not transferable...

Just thinking, If I add my Father to the hyatt credit card, Can I then without playing games with the Hotel use the free nights under his name?

Still won't work. It has nothing to do with the AU on the CC#. It has to do with the GP#. And, AFAIK, you can't have two people associated with one GP#.

BTW it's a shame your flight to Paris got cancelled/you wound up getting sick/you had a last minute business meeting/etc.  You would've had a great time in the PH with your dad.

Not only that, but talking to a manager may get them to crack down on the entire loophole.
