Hyatt adds more Small Luxury Hotels to the World of Hyatt programme

World of Hyatt partnered with Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) back in 2018.  The tie-up allows World of Hyatt members to book SLH properties via hyatt.com, and get exclusive benefits for doing so, and redeem their World of Hyatt points with SLH.

A further batch of SLH hotels was added this week. These are:

A full list of all UK Small Luxury Hotels bookable via Hyatt is in this article.

As well as being able to redeem your World of Hyatt points at these properties, you will get special benefits when staying at a Small Luxury Hotels property.  When – and only when – you book via hyatt.com you will get:

  • Complimentary continental breakfast
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Early check-in 12:00pm (based on availability)
  • Late check-out 2:00pm (based on availability)
  • Room upgrade to the next category up (based on availability)

Interestingly, having status in World of Hyatt isn’t worth anything at SLH hotels except for a status bonus on the points you earn.  The benefits are fixed.  You will earn 5 base World of Hyatt points for every $1 spent.

It’s just a shame that World of Hyatt points are so difficult to earn if you live in the UK.  There are only a modest number of Hyatt properties in major business cities in Europe, there is no UK credit card and they are not an American Express Membership Rewards partner.

Don’t forget your American Express cashback

American Express is currently offering £100 cashback on a £300 spend at selected Small Luxury Hotel properties before 30th September.

Nothing stops you booking via the Hyatt website, to get the benefits above, as long as you book a ‘pay on departure’ rate.  Not all of the hotels above are taking part in the offer, so check the list on the American Express website if you are targetted for the deal.

    For the Glasgow and Edinburgh properties, is there much scope for use for a family of 2 adults and 2 young children e.g. looking at the Continental in Edinburgh, doesn’t look like there are any rooms that would fit us all in the one room. Thanks.

    Silly question but do we have evidence the IHG offer triggers for everyone or just targeted customers? My Ambassador renewal date is 1st Sept but it makes sense to do so now. I’m slightly worried by the lack of any details of this offer on any IHG landing page.

    • Vin says:

      Triggered for me even though my extended membership expired in February ’21.

  • Rich says:

    Do you know if the ambweekend rate counts as a qualifying stay? Just renewed and using last years certificate next month for a stay at Kinmpton in London

    • Sandra says:

      Yes you will get points on any spend as normal but not on the free night, it normally also triggers any bonus offers that you qualify for
