The Hyatt hotel group has taken a few knocks recently. After Marriott acquired Starwood, it was the clear baby of the big international hotel groups. A bodged shake-up of its loyalty scheme, creating World of Hyatt, alienated many loyalists. The most recent attempt to gain scale by mounting a last-minute bid for NH Hotels went nowhere.
There is now some positive news. Sketchy details have been announced of a partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World, a marketing group representing 500 boutique high-end properties.
It isn’t clear what this will entail. Some SLH properties will become bookable on the Hyatt website and you will be able to earn and redeem World of Hyatt points and enjoy status benefits when you book.
It remains to be seen how many SLH members will take advantage, but we could soon see UK hotels such as Luton Hoo, 11 Cadogan Gardens, Danesfield House, Langshott Manor and Stoke Park available for points.
