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.
This clearly won’t work at all Hyatt properties. However, if you are visiting an expensive city at peak season it is definitely worth doing the maths.
We value Hyatt points at 1.1p. At the top end you are paying $1,320 for 71,500 points, which is 1.3p each. You won’t get a steal on this basis but you should still come out on top at a good hotel on an expensive night.
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.
Hyatt has recently started letting you book suites online for points and there are some bargains to be had.
