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 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.
your best bet is to first see if the standard suite is available (though it is just a junior suite) (you can look on Hyatt.com and it will show as standard suite when you search for points rooms) then you can transfer your points to someone selling a suite upgrade and they can book the suite for you. Going rate is about $100

And no you cannot convert your nights into 15K Hyatt points so stop wasting your time trying to do that

Also if you buy the 1-7 nights a suite upgrade cannot be confirmed in advance

Thank you! I only see a premium suite available for 60k/night. Was hoping snagging a suite would be possible when only booking the standard 30k/night room, but guess thatís not the case?

Okay, so it sounds like what I would like to do is offer someone with Globalist (I'm just a lowly discoverist) to book the 1 King Bed for 30k/night on my behalf, and then get the complimentary suite upgrade to hopefully get something like the 1 Bedroom City View Suite (that goes for 60k/night) ? I have to give Hyatt credit, they've been very good to me on day-of upgrades in the past in low peak seasons, but due to the occasion I'd like to have a little more than just luck backing this experience lol.. and thank you for your help and input.

Suite upgrade will not book you into a premium suite

Sorry my question has nothing to with suite upgrade awards. I'm just asking about a regular GOH stay in a standard room (using Cat 1-4 certificates).

Yes, if a standard suite is not available then applying a suite upgrade award is not possible.  Your only hope is an upgrade at check in, which can be whatever room/suite the property chooses.

Ok, that makes sense. So in this case, as the discretion goes to the hotel for bumping the standard to a suite, is booking this in points through a globalist worth the effort vs just booking it myself? Are the odds ever more in their favor so to speak? lol...

The odds will be more in your favor, but still low IME, but at least you are guaranteed free breakfast and Free parking if you book thrrough a globalist

Globalists are often upgraded to suites at check in so you have a chance.  Booking yourself I would guess you have next to a zero percent chance.
