Topic Wiki

There are two different types of hyatt nights. Sign Up Nights (referred to as "SUN"s) and anniversary nights. The sign up nights are from when you sign up for the hyatt credit card. The anniversary night are given to you if you keep the credit card after the first year. You get one anniversary night every year. The sign up nights can be used for any hyatt hotel in the world on any date where a Standard Room is available. The anniversary nights can only be used in hyatt hotels categories 1-4 (Notable category 4 hyatt hotels: Hyatt regency mission bay, San Diego Ca. Andaz peninsula papagayo, Costa Rico.). Obviously the sign up nights are more valuable as they can be used in any hotel worldwide. The way somebody would book this night for you is they would put you as a second guest on the reservation. It is not recommended to combine nights between 3 different accounts or more. Or 2 accounts that none is yours. Obviously any reservation from a diamond account is more valuable since you will get the benefits as a second guest.

Suite Upgrades:

Can be applied to any reservation whether cash, C &P or all points. It must be booked out of the Globalist Account. The Globalist must be the primary on the reservation as well. One DSU (They are actually called TSUs now) works for up to 7 days on a consecutive reservation for the base suite only. Before asking to buy one please check and make sure that the standard suite is available online to save everyone time. When you click on the suite description it will say if the suite is standard or premium if it is standard you can use the TSU if not, you cannot.

Select premium suites can now be booked for double points per night as well.

TSUs cannot be applied to free night certificates for some reason.

Some sellers prefer not to sell TSUs for international reservations as international Hyatts are well know for asking for the account holder to show up in order to give Globalist benefits. Maybe we should make a list of international hotels that are ok with it but that is a YMMV

Other benefits you receive when using a TSU: Free Breakfast for 2 adults and 2 children, 4 PM late checkout, no resort fees on any stay and free parking on award stays only

Per forum rules both buyers and sellers must post a price

Yes, the wiki is just warning that some hotels might be strict and require the primary guest to show up and checkin.

Yes, if cancelled after February, the DSU gets lost.

Outside of the GH Taipei, and specifically in the PH Toronto, has anyone had any difficulty checking in as an additional guest using an anniversary night?

I did it at the Hyatt in new Brunswick NJ about a month ago.

You cannot change it, but you can try asking them to extend them.

Personally, I would only do this for properties in the US. Too risky for int'l properties IMHO.

Why would it be more risky internationally? Do you include Canada as being international?

IMO, int'l hotels are more strict about the guests who are checking in and listed on the reservation versus those in the US. Regarding Canada, I think it should be fine but don't come in expecting any issues at check-in. Always good to have a fallback option. I'm not sure about others but I like to make sure that all my bases are covered.

Right. And does anyone have expireance with this?
Do they normally extend it. Or is it uncommon?
