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

YMMV but usually should not be a problem. Can also have person booking call to say he/she will be late etc.

That's normally what i do but if every week there is some dude checking in with a dsu where his buddy is "running late" ( not to mention they book a king bed & there is a cpl checking in) the hotel would have to be brain dead or just not care..

Don't walk up to check in counter with your wife. Let her hang out in the lobby and you check in alone.

Obviously- but still over the course of one's stay if there is a high level of personal service they must pick up on it..

Eg when I stayed at the jw Cancun everyone from the doorman to the pool-boy greeted me by my first name..

That doesn't mean that they know the details of your reservation.

True but I have done this plenty of times (booked thru someone else's account) where the one that checked me in was at front desk and saw us over the course of our stay-no one ever said anything to us but Im sure the guy figured out what was going on so was just wondering if at hotels where a lot of ppl do apparently have done this if they let it slide or if they started tightening up..

I am looking to stay at the Andaz Maui from April 10-17 for p+C. I am  taking offers from Diamond members with DSU's who would like the nights and would book this under their account.


Alternatively I would book p+c at the Hyatt Regency Maui same dates through a Diamond account with DSU.

I have 2 free signup nights and plan on using 1 of the nights in the park hyatt nyc on my wedding night.
How do I get a upgrade to a suite?

Any ideas?
Hotel manager or diamond member?

Any new tricks since this post from last year?  Staying here for anniversary on Plat account (with signup night) and trying to get a suite upgrade - still best to just speak with manager when we arrive?
