World of Hyatt has announced its annual category changes whereby selected hotels get more or less expensive for points.

372 hotels, including Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties, are changing. 158 are getting cheaper and 214 are getting more expensive.

The bulk of the increases are in the US, with Europe seeing more properties getting cheaper than pricier.

World of Hyatt announces annual hotel reward category changes

Hyatt approaches changes in a very respectable way:

  • you get plenty of notice to make bookings at properties which are getting more expensive – the changes don’t take place until 28th March
  • if you have a redemption booked at a hotel which is getting cheaper, you are automatically refunded the difference – there is no need to rebook

At the top end, nine hotels are moving into Category 8 which is the most expensive. These include Park Hyatt Zurich.

In the UK, the only hotel going up is Andaz London Liverpool Street.

The following are getting cheaper: Alexander House Hotel & Utopia Spa, Ashdown Park Hotel, Bishopstrow Hotel & Spa, Cromlix, Crossbasket Castle, Dormy House Hotel, Flemings Mayfair, Foxhill Manor, Greywalls Hotel, Grove of Narberth, Homewood, Isle of Eriska Hotel, Luton Hoo Hotel Golf and Spa and Monkey Island Estate.

You can see the full list of changes on the Hyatt website here. Remember to make bookings at hotels which are getting more expensive before 28th March.
