Looks like some hotels have already gone up in price... looking at the Andaz Mayakoba and it says 25k category 6?
does that make sense?

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?
