LOOKING TO TRADE 2 HYATT CREDIT CARD FREE NIGHT AWARDS
« on: July 04, 2012, 11:56:26 PM »
Hi,

I got the Hyatt Credit Card and received 2 free night awards for signing up. I am going to LA in August and need to stay in a hotel from August 24-26 (Shabbos) which is in walking distance to a shul. I know that the free night awards are very valuable since they can be used anywhere in the world, but since I dont have any overseas travel planned in the near future I planned on using them at the Hyatt Century City which has a Chabad shul in it. Unfortunately, the hotel has no award availability for that weekend.

Because of this situation, I am hoping that someone is perhaps willing to swap my 2 free night awards for 2 nights at the SLS at Beverly Hills which is in walking distance to shuls. I know there are those who have a ton of SPG points or perhaps have other ways of making this happen that it would be worthwhile for them to do it. I do not know how to make the swap so I am open to ideas, but I just assumed we can book for each other. The plus for me would be that if someone with elite status wants to make the trade with me then I and my wife may benefit from a room upgrade as well, which would be really nice since that doesn't happen often (ever).

If you are willing to make this trade or have any suggestions please let me know, I am all ears. Feel free to email me at vintastic16@aol.com as well. I will check this thread as well. Thanks for your help. Hopefully we can make each other happy. :)

No, and it seems to be 16k instead of 12k for a cat 5. Does the OP have status with Hyatt?

I am willing to trade the 2 FREE NIGHTS that I have (see above) for Hilton points or 2 nights so I can stay in Beverly Hilton for Shabbos which is near shuls too.

If you're interested then PM me, email me, or reply on this thread. Thanks

Checking in Fri, Aug 24 and checking out Aug 26 (even though I'll really be checking out right after Shabbos, but I'll have to pay for a second night anyway)

Have you thought about staying at hotels that are not as high end but much closer to shuls. All the hotels you have mentioned are a bit of a walk. At least in the Pico/Robertson neighborhood there are 2 hotels down the block from at least 5-10 shuls. The Residence Inn and the Crowne Plaza.
