Quick Thoughts

Hyatt points are quite valuable, so earning more points is obviously better than fewer. I’m usually not very excited about these promotions that begin with your second stay, but in this case I’m actually checking out of a Hyatt hotel on the day this promotion begins, so I believe I’ll be set for double points on any other Hyatt stays through December 15th (if only I had some booked!).

I am particularly happy to see the fact that Hyatt Place properties will earn triple points through this promotion. My biggest gripe with the Hyatt program has been that I didn’t mind going out of my way to stay at a Hyatt Place back when I could qualify for elite status based on stays. Now that 60 nights are required, I’ve often said that the problem is that Hyatt Place and Hyatt House have long made up the majority of the chain’s footprint and there is absolutely no benefit at those properties for elite members since everyone (who books directly) gets breakfast and there often aren’t upgraded rooms. Still, I like Hyatt Place, especially now that we travel with a baby (the extra space is really helpful). Offering triple points at those properties is a way to reward members for choosing to go out of their way to be loyal to Hyatt, and I think that’s a good thing.

I’m not sure that double or triple points will be enough to get me to change plans in terms of my stays during this period, but I’ll certainly keep an eye out for opportunities to take advantage. Keep in mind that this deal will stack with other current promotions like:
