Sadly, today 22 different Hyatt hotels got pricier in points, but on the positive side, that also means that 48 Hyatt hotels got cheaper in points effective today.  I love when popular and family friendly hotels get cheaper and more attainable, so here are a few different hotels that will now cost fewer points than they did yesterday.  Also note that if you already booked one of these hotels, you should get the difference between the new and old price automatically deposited in your account.  You can find the full list of the 48 hotels that went down in category here.

Grand Hyatt San Antonio and Hyatt Regency San Antonio 12,000 points per night (down from 15,000)

Both of these hotels in downtown San Antonio are very good choices for exploring and enjoying things in San Antonio including the Alamo, the Riverwalk, and more.  The Riverwalk literally runs through the Hyatt Regency San Antonio, and the nearby Grand Hyatt is still in a good spot, with perhaps a slightly more upscale feel.

Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress 15,000 points per night (down from 20,000)

This hotel is a fantastic choice when visiting Disney World and staying close, but not so close as to be living, breathing, and eating Disney all day.  There is a shuttle to the parks from this hotel, as well as plenty to do on this large property.  The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress also has an above-average lounge for a Hyatt lounge in the United States.

Hyatt Regency Montreal 8,000 points per night (down from 12,000)

Hotels in Montreal can sometimes be a little pricey, but being able to stay in a walkable spot to lots of things in Montreal for just 8,000 points per night is pretty phenomenal.  We stayed here at 12,000 points per night a few years ago and thought that was a steal, so 8,000 points per night is totally a steal.  As a point of reference, the Le Meredian Westin can go for 16,000 SPG points per night, so staying here for just 8,000 Hyatt points is solid.

Grand Hyatt Washington 15,000 points per night (down from 20,000)

I think the Grand Hyatt Washington is the best points-friendly hotel for families in Washington DC thanks to location, the club lounge, rooms for four, and a reasonable points price.  Now at just 15,000 points per night, this hotel is even more of a clear winner for families looking to visit the nation’s capital using points.

Park Hyatt Washington 20,000 points per night (down from 25,000)

If you want a more upscale DC experience, the Park Hyatt is a great choice.  I don’t think the location is as good for families visiting the major DC attractions, but the hotel is certainly very nice and has an very enjoyable Diamond breakfast benefit in the Blue Duck Tavern.

I haven’t stayed at any of the following Hyatt properties, but I can see very strong value in them at the new points levels whether for a quick overnight stay before a flight, or as a nice hotel to headquarter out of for a longer vacation.

Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa 15,000 points per night (down from 20,000)

Hyatt Place Orlando Airport 5,000 points per night (down from 8,000)

Hyatt Place Salt Lake City Airport 5,000 points per night (down from 8,000)

Hyatt Place Orlando/Universal 8,000 points per night (down from 12,000)

Hyatt French Quarter 15,000 points per night (down from 20,000)

Six New Options for Category 4 Annual Hyatt Visa Night:

If you have the Hyatt Visa, it is also very important to note the six hotels that dropped from a Category 5 to a Category 4, as they are all now eligible for you to use your annual free night that comes from having the Hyatt Visa.  Those six hotels include: Grand Hyatt Washington, Hyatt French Quarter, Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa, Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, MGM Grand, and the Hyatt Regency La Jolia.

I’d love to hear which hotels you are eying now that their points price is a bit cheaper?  Are you expecting a points refund from any stays you have booked?

  1. Recently stayed at both the Hyatt French Quarter (without kids) and the Hyatt Place in New Orleans (with kids). If you are traveling with kids, I would definitely pick the Hyatt Place. The Hyatt French Quarter is a little more adult focused. Both are very nice and great locations.

  2. Hey Mommy Points, what is the name of that Hyatt property in TX with the lazy river that you guys frequent? I can’t find the old post you did a few months ago.

  3. Do you any recommendations for 2 BR suites at Orlando for 1-week? We have 2 couples traveling. I can redeem SPG points and make 2 bookings. But I am not sure if that’s a good redemption option. Heard of timeshares, rentals etc. but not sure how they’ll turn out to be. Thoughts?

    • Julie, my understanding is they have to be used by then. You can call Hyatt to see if there is any wiggle room, but I think they are valid one year from date of issue, and they have to actually be used (stay completed) by the end of that year. However, I don’t have the Hyatt card, so my understanding could be wrong…

  4. We are headed to Coconut Point with our almost one year old. It was a nice surprise that I could now use my free credit card night and get done points back!
