UPDATE – OCTOBER 2020: This article is now out of date, but don’t worry. We produce a monthly summary of the top hotel bonus point offers – please click HERE or use the ‘Hotel Offers’ menu above.
Click here for our article on Hyatt’s current ‘triple points’ promotion. You need to register by 30th November and stay by 4th January 2021. You can register for the offer by clicking here.
Hyatt is also offering a 30% bonus when you buy points until 24th November 2020. The website to buy points, and find out more, is here.
As we have covered a few times this year, World of Hyatt has been slowly drip-feeding properties from the Small Luxury Hotels of the World consortium into its ‘system’.
This is an ‘earn and burn’ partnership with, to be honest, the real value being on the ‘burn’ side in my view. Small Luxury Hotels are primarily leisure focused properties and many are in areas where you won’t find any high-end chains.
Another 56 Small Luxury Hotels were loaded on hyatt.com this week, taking the total of over 300. There are two new additions in the UK which are now bookable with World of Hyatt points:
- Stoke Park (image below, as seen in Goldfinger and Tomorrow Never Dies)
- Great Fosters, Egham
If you book a paid stay at a Small Luxury Hotel via hyatt.com, you will receive:
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Daily complimentary continental breakfast for two guests
- Room upgrade (one category at check-in if available)
- Early check-in (noon, based upon availability at check-in)
- Late check-out (2:00pm, based upon availability at check-in)
You also receive World of Hyatt points – but only on your room rate, not dining or spa – and night credit towards status.
Until 2nd March 2020, there is an additional carrot. You will receive 3,000 World of Hyatt points, which I value at around £35, with every SLH booking made via Hyatt.
You MUST register in advance via this page of the Hyatt website. Registration closes on 31st January and you must check-out by 2nd March. The offer only applies to cash stays, not reward bookings.
It’s not necessarily a free ride, however. I have seen numerous reports of some SLH hotels offering cheaper rates via their own websites than via hyatt.com, so make sure you compare – although you need to factor in the free breakfast and potential upgrade that you get via hyatt.com, plus the 3,000 bonus points.
Full details of the Hyatt / Small Luxury Hotels partnership can be found here.
