MP Hyatt chat highlights
« on: November 10, 2011, 08:10:20 AM »
Decided to clip somethings I found of interest:

Will Hyatt Gold Passport introduce something similar [to cash and points], and if so, when can we expect to see it?
Jeff Zidell: Both Cash + Points and Awards on Sale are high on our radar screen. Stay tuned!

When will FFN come back?
Jeff Zidell: We were expecting this question. We love FFN as much as you do! Just like we all need a vacation from time to time, FFN also needed a break. Itís a great promotion, and we are looking at what makes sense moving forward.

Are there any plans to give 'stay' credit for award stays (on points) toward status qualification, as other chains (like SPG) are now doing?   
Jeff Zidell: We are looking into this, but we donít think that it would impact very many members.

Any updates or news about the capability of using your GP card to access your room instead of stopping at the front desk?
Jeff Zidell: This is currently in test in California.

Nice. Hopefully C&P won't go come with another devaluation, IIRC, they recently devalued the top awards from 18k to 22k points per night.

Jeff said for many things (like if award stays counting as a stay) would make you stay at a Hyatt more to tweet them with this hastag:
#HyattGP
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.

Thumbsdown on giving FFN a break...

Was great while it lasted, perhaps too good.

Hmm... Good point I didn't think of that. They might do one with the "anniversary nights" of cat 1-4.

But to be honest, there were a few answers there that I didn't post, which made it sound like they were taking complaints of status dilution seriously.

Does anyone know the best/easiest way to get Hyatt diamond trial status no that the HHonors gold trial is dead? I'm going to Hawaii in January and would  love to have the suite upgrade.
