Now that Hyatt is offering a 20% points rebate for stays through July 31, 2015, Emily and I have been talking about how we’ll make the most of this promotion.
Hyatt is our favorite hotel chain. We’ve always had great experiences staying with them, and their service is consistently amazing. Plus, with Diamond elite status, we enjoy perks like upgraded rooms, free breakfast, and executive lounge access.
We’ve stayed at some great hotels in the past, but are looking forward to more Hyatt adventures. And some of them are incredible values!
Here are some of the hotels we’ve been dreaming about. Maybe some of your favorites are on the list, too!
Hyatt Plans: Where We Want to Stay
1. Buenos Aires, Argentina – Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires
Emily loves Latin dancing so 1 of the destinations we’ve dreamed of is Buenos Aires, Argentina, where the tango was invented.
The Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires was originally a palace built in the 1930’s for an affluent Argentinian family. It’s now been expanded to include several buildings and gardens, but you can still stay in a room or suite in the original palace!
We’d definitely try to use a Diamond suite upgrade at this hotel. If we’re lucky, we might get a suite located in the original building, which include fireplaces and crystal chandeliers! And some suites come with their own private terrace.
The Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires is a Hyatt category 5 hotel, so rooms cost 20,000 points per night, and suites cost 32,000 points. With the 20% Hyatt points rebate, you’ll pay 16,000 points for a room and 25,600 points for a suite (if you don’t use a Diamond suite upgrade!).
That’s not a bad deal for a night in a palace!
2. Mendoza, Argentina – Park Hyatt Mendoza
Link: Park Hyatt Mendoza
While we’re in Argentina, we’d love to visit Mendoza, a city located in the biggest wine-producing region in Latin America. It’s a popular spot for wine enthusiasts and eco-tourists.
And it’s a great place to try out genuine Argentine-style barbecue, or asado. I’m interested to taste how it compares to the barbecue in Austin!
The Park Hyatt Mendoza has a wine bar and its own barbecue restaurant and parilla. Rooms here seem elegant and understated, and there’s also a pool, spa, and casino.
What really excites me about this hotel is that it’s only a Hyatt category 2! Normally, rooms cost 8,000 points per night, and suites are 13,000 points per night. If you book with the 20% Hyatt rebate, you’ll only pay 6,400 points for a room and 10,400 points for a suite.
What an amazing value for a Park Hyatt!
3. Shanghai, China – Grand Hyatt Shanghai
Link: Grand Hyatt Shanghai
We’ve been itching to get back to China after our trip over Christmas in 2013. There is so much to explore there and we’d love to visit Shanghai, which many call “The Paris of the East.”
Standard rooms cost 15,000 points per night, and suites are 24,000 points per night. With the 20% discount, you’ll pay only 12,000 points for a room and 19,200 points for a suite.
4. Sydney, Australia – Park Hyatt Sydney
Link: Park Hyatt Sydney
This is another bucket list hotel for many miles and points collectors. And when Emily and I finally make it to Australia, we want to do it in style!
Note: The Park Hyatt Sydney does not make suites available for award bookings.
5. Tokyo, Japan – Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills
We’ve been planning a trip to Japan for quite some time, but haven’t made it – yet! I can’t wait to get to Tokyo to experience the culture, history, and of course the food!
The Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills is a Hyatt category 6 hotel, so rooms normally cost 25,000 points per night, and suites cost 40,000 points. With the Hyatt 20% rebate, you’ll pay only 20,000 points for a room, or 32,000 points for a suite.
That’s a bargain for a top-tier hotel in 1 of the biggest and most expensive cities in the world!
How Do You Get Hyatt Points?
To get 2 free nights at any Hyatt (including top category Hyatts like the Park Hyatt Sydney) quickly, you can sign-up for the Chase Hyatt credit card. You’ll get 2 free nights after you spend $1,000 in new purchases in the 1st 3 months of opening your account.
Check out my post about how you can get an improved offer for this card with a $50 statement credit. Emily and I don’t earn a commission for this card, but we’ll always tell you about the best deals!
You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio. Here’s a list of cards which earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points:
|Personal Cards||Business Cards|
|Chase Sapphire Reserve||Chase Ink Plus|
|Chase Sapphire Preferred||Chase Ink Bold (No Longer Available to New Applicants)|
|Chase Freedom||Chase Ink Cash|
|Chase Freedom Unlimited|
|Chase Sapphire (No Longer Available to New Applicants)|
|Note: Points earned from the Chase Freedom, Sapphire, and Ink Cash cards can only be transferred to travel partners if you also have a Chase Sapphire Preferred, Ink Plus, or Ink Bold card.|
You have many options to earn lots of Hyatt points and use them before the July 31, 2015, deadline for the Hyatt 20% rebate!
There are so many great Hyatt hotels that Emily and I want to try! And now’s a perfect time, because Chase Hyatt cardholders get a 20% points rebate when they redeem Hyatt points by July 31, 2015.
You have to register by March 31, 2015. It’s worth it because you’ll save lots of points – and maybe get to splurge on a hotel you’ve always dreamed of!
