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

I'm a complete newbie at this, so if anyone can help I would appreciate it.

I want to go to Washington DC for Chol Hamoed. 2 night stay. Got kids and would like to take a suite if possible (or I'll need to do 2 rooms per night). I have a lot of Chase points (over a million) from my business. What is my best option? Transferring points to Hyatt? Booking through Chase itself? Buying a voucher from someone (and if I do, what do I need to buy)?

Thanks.

Take a look at the wiki at the top of the page. Based on the information you provided, I would suggest doing a Cash and Points reservation with a DSU.

A very kind forum member PM'd me and suggested the same. And so that is the plan. The trouble is, none of the DC hotels are offering cash+points for the nights I need! When this happens does waiting help? Do they sometimes open cash+points as the booking date gets closer?

If available on points, you can try calling hotel and ask them to open c & p availability.

Also make sure to check which suite you get by applying a DSU. Some suotes are substantial upgrades, but some are only a slightly larger and fancier room than a standard room.
