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

Can you add that info to the Wiki? Along with any other known properties/regions that tend to have issues?

Would be super useful for folks to have that available for reference.

Looking for a night booked under my name (I'm a globalist) for $125 in January.  You would have to call Hyatt and gift me the night or reach out via Twitter/FB

Bump

I currently have a trip booked using my points at Hyatt Papagayo coming up in December 2021.

However I dont have Gloablist status and am interesting in finding out whether its possible for me to cancel my booking and transfer my points to someone with Globalist status to book.

Please let me know if someone is interested in helping me out!

Maybe adding the suite award is what causes the issue.  They cancelled the original reservation and made the second guest checking in create their own reservation and pay the higher price for the suite.   Wouldn't budge without the globalist there to check in.

Wow!
I mean the globalist can always make a new GOH res
Did you tell them he wasnít coming or that he would come later?

Iíve done this many times in US and non US properties including Hawaii as well and the worse that happened is that they didnít want to give extra globalist benefits until globalist shows up

No that wouldnít work actually for two reasons. 1. this was a cash stay 2. GoH cannot add their suite awards as they are non-transferrable

Yes come later but they donít care what you tell them. They said thatís fine but if the Globalist never shows up and checks in with us youíre paying the full price of the suite room and the SNA gets returned to the owner.  They knew what was up.

With the Globalist not there they donít have to honor any benefits including the suite award.

I would like to book the Park Hyatt New York, for December 1-3.. wedding anniversary. I have up to 60k points, so I don't know if the best deal here is to send those points and pay someone to book the standard night and/or buy the category 1-7 award nights and hope for upgrades? Or buy complimentary suite upgrades too to lock those in? Not sure how this works, so this is a combo proposal + pity request for guidance lol.

I see some options for Cat 1-7 free night awards. It looks like the going rate for those is around $400. I have two free night awards Category 1-4. expiring 12/31/21 and 9/04/22. Would be willing to trade/sell in this deal.

P.S. Alternatively, I heard that it's possible to convert cat 1-4 awards into 15k points/each... though I've so far been unsuccessful convincing a rep to do that. lol.. if anyone happens to have a tip that'd be appreciated.
