Hyatt is offering (yet another) 30% bonus when you buy 5,000+ World of Hyatt points via this link. The offer runs to 1st August.
This is obviously worth a look if you need to top up your account. It may also be worthwhile if you are considering a stay in a top tier Park Hyatt such as Paris, where buying the points may be cheaper than paying cash – here’s my recent Park Hyatt New York review where I did just that.
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 1.5p 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.
(This article, for example, shows how you can massively cut the cost of 7Pines in Ibiza if you buy points.)
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 started letting you book suites online for points and there are some bargains to be had. Here is how I used that feature in Paris last year. Looking at suite upgrades, you are paying 6,000 points per night – or 9,000 for a premium suite – which would be (x 1.5p) £90 per night. This is good value, especially if the suite automatically gets you lounge access too.
