This is obviously worth a look if you need to top up your account. It may also be worthwhile if you are considering a post-corona stay in a top tier Park Hyatt such as Paris, where buying the points may be cheaper than paying cash.
The new-ish Park Hyatt resort in Mallorca, pictured here, dropped in points price recently and is now just 20,000 points per night.
This is an EXCEPTIONAL deal if you buy points, assuming that Spain does open up this Summer.
A cash room for 8th-12th August is €675 (£582) per night, for example, whilst buying 20,000 points costs you just $384 (£299). That’s a saving of almost 50%.
This clearly won’t work at all Hyatt properties. However, if you are visiting an expensive city at peak season – Hyatt does not have peak and off-peak pricing, so you get a better deal at peak times – it is definitely worth doing the maths.
The chain has some excellent hotels, and I genuinely find Park Hyatt to be the best luxury chain which is run by one of the multi-brand groups. It doesn’t beat Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental etc but I’d take one over a Ritz-Carlton, Waldorf Astoria or St Regis any day.
