Last Chance to Book These 50 Hyatt Hotels at Current Rates!!

Hyatt Gold Passport is adjusting the category of 106 hotels effective tomorrow, August 1, 2016. That means that today is your last chance to lock in 50 hotels at their current point rates before they will cost you more points tomorrow.


In the case of the four properties going up from a Category 4 to a Category 5, this also represents your last chance to use your annual Hyatt Credit Card award night since it is only valid up to Category 4. Those hotels include Hyatt Regency San Francisco, Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson, Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago, and the Hyatt Centric Park City where I just used my annual award night for a ski weekend this coming winter!

Hyatt Centric Park City

As I wrote here, the six properties I am most personally upset to see jump categories include not only the Hyatt Centric Park City, but also the Hyatt Place Asheville Downtown which is currently a steal as a Category 1 property, the Hyatt Place Houston/The Woodlands where I have friends/family stay near us, Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport which is currently just a Category 2, my favorite airport hotel the Grand Hyatt DFW, and Hyatt Place Nashville Downtown, which is a superb location for visiting Nashville.

Of course you should look carefully at all 50 properties increasing in points price tomorrow and lock in anything you are interested in for the next 13 months. Take note of the cancellation penalties, but usually you can cancel without penalty until relatively close to the travel date.

Just in case you need a refresher, here are the Hyatt Gold Passport category prices below.

If you are short on Hyatt points remember they transfer 1:1 from Chase Ultimate Rewards and cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred or you can purchase them here with an up to 40% bonus if you purchase at least 5,000 points through the end of today (July 31). That drops your per point price to as low as 1.7 cents each.

Hopefully you can make redemptions today for the next 13 months at the properties increasing in points price! I’m considering locking in a long weekend for next summer at the Hyatt Place Asheville just in case it aligns with our travel plans since it is a total steal as a Category 1 property. I’ll post tomorrow about the 56 properties going down in points price, but for today focus on the ones going up!

Have you squeezed in one more redemption at the current point rates? Which property did you secure?

    • Last minute is still just in time. 😉 Sounds like a great choice! Josh was in San Francisco for work this week and I was so jealous I couldn’t tag along. Great city.

  1. I haven’t been to the Hyatt Regency In Asheville but just got back from Asheville yesterday and it is a great area to visit. We went for the weekend and will be going back in a few weeks . We live about 2 hours from Asheville and it is a nice place to get away cool off from the hot temps ( a little cooler right now). If you go, visit the Biltmore house. It is beautiful!

  2. Am currently at Hyatt Place Asheville. An absolute great redemption at 5000 points. Wonderful location, nice hotel. Paid rates are through the roof. This weekend roughly $450 a night before taxes. Hyatt is playing the game about higher floors equal upgraded room and therefore not available on points, but maybe far ahead that is not a problem. I realize only a couple more hours to book,, we just checked in today, but would HIGHLY recommend for 5000 points. Can also recommend Hyatt place in Nashville. Pleasant hotel, right close to heart of downtown.
