Hyatt has opened the 234-room Hyatt Centric The Liberties Dublin, which is the first Hyatt branded hotel in Ireland.

It is based in The Liberties, which is apparently one of Dublin’s most historic and vibrant areas dating back to the 10th century.  It is within 10 minutes walk of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, St Patrick’s Cathedral, the Dublin Liberties Distillery and the Guinness Storehouse.

Hyatt Centric Liberties Dublin

I was pleasantly impressed by the new Hyatt Centric in Madrid where I stayed last year (review), so I would have high hopes for this hotel.  For top-tier World of Hyatt members, the hotel has nine suites for potential upgrades including a Terrace View Suite overlooking the Dublin Mountains.

There is no swimming pool but there is a 24/7 fitness centre.

World of Hyatt members can earn 500 bonus points on stays until 31st December 2019.  No registration is required – full details are on the ‘new hotel bonuses’ page of here.

You can find out more about Hyatt Centric The Liberties Dublin on the website here.  As a redemption, it is 12,000 World of Hyatt points per night which is fair to decent value given the room rates – you should get more than my target value of 1p per Hyatt point.

    Thinking of branching out into collecting Nectar points. What are people in the know spending them on? Trying to gauge if they are worth collecting.

    • 0.5p in 99% of redemptions – very little opportunity for arbitrage. Not none, but little.

    • Essentially each nectar point is worth 0.5p on most redemptions most of the time so it is simply dull. However, it is possible to get 1pnp value on some partners at some times which can be very useful. The most notable offers being on LNER, Ebay and Sainsburys double up events in store. Most just come up once a year if we are lucky. I save mine for LNER for which I have redeemed over £800 now I think at double value. My other redemptions have been a £209 gtech vacuum cleaner for £100 in store and £50 on ebay also at double value. Some 1p offers or better also appear on Cafe Nero, Pizza Express and cinemas IIRC. Here’s the thing though, while Nectar is dull, it is unquestionably better than Tesco Clubcard for collect large amounts of points. Anybody who believes otherwise is misinformed. You will receive many more collection offers across many partners than with clubcard. There is currently two credit cards available, one from Sainsbury and one from amex. If you can live with the small number of opportunities to get 1pnp value then nectar is better than clubcard, if not then stick with clubcard. You can search nectar with all the key words in this comment on for more details.
