We Still Have Lots of Hyatt Hotels to Cross Off Our Bucket List, and the Hyatt 20% Points Rebate Will Help!

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!

1.   Buenos Aires, Argentina – Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires

Link:   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!

Hooray, No Vegetables Here! Carnivores Will Appreciate Argentinian Asado, or Barbecued Meats, Cooked on a Parilla Grill

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.”

Shanghai Means “Upon-the-Sea” and It’s the Largest City in China (and 1 of the Biggest in the World!)

The Grand Hyatt Shanghai was once the tallest hotel in the world.  It encompasses the top 36 floors of the 88-story Jin Mao Tower, and the views from the hotel are apparently spectacular.

Here’s another great value – the Grand Hyatt Shanghai is only a category 4 Hyatt hotel.

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!

The Park Hyatt Sydney is located right on Sydney Harbor, across from the famous Sydney Opera House.

You can stroll along the boardwalk or dine in 1 of their 5-star restaurants, The Dining Room and The Living Room.  I know Emily will enjoy their afternoon tea!

You’ll normally pay 30,000 points for a room at the Park Hyatt Sydney, because it’s a top-tier category 7 Hyatt hotel.  But if you book with the 20% Hyatt rebate, you’ll pay 24,000 points.

Note:  The Park Hyatt Sydney does not make suites available for award bookings.

5.   Tokyo, Japan – Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills

Link:   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 opened in 2014, and is located on the top floors of the Toranomon Hills skyscraper complex.  It’s the 2nd tallest building in Tokyo!

You’ll Get a Birds-Eye View of the City at the Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills (and Possibly Vertigo!)

The hotel is located near the busy Ginza shopping district (you all know how much I love shopping ;)) and is close to shrines, temples, and historic sites.

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.

  1. I believe this contains erroneous information. Park Hyatt Sydney is a Category 7 property. The two free nights offer with the credit card only allows up to Category 4. I suggest reading the fine print. Shame on Million Mile Secrets to misrepresent.

  2. @Jane: That would be new information. The two free nights offer is for ANY Hyatt property – including their all-inclusive resorts. The limit to Cat 4 hotels is only applicable to their annual free night certificate. Shame on… ?

  3. @Jane – you are incorrect. Free nights are good for ANY Hyatt. Here it is straight from the terms and conditions: “Each Free Night Award is valid for use within one year from issuance for one (1) night in any available standard room at any Hyatt Hotel or Resort worldwide or participating M life resorts”.

  4. Thanks to the suggestions on this website, we used our 2 free nights with our Hyatt card at the Grand Hyatt in Kauai–a category 6 hotel. @Jane I suggest you get the facts straight before you start “shaming” people. I am personally tired of the critics of this helpful website.

  5. @Jane – Over the past few years, I’ve gotten to take my wife and kids on some amazing low cost travel adventures thanks to the info Darius and Emily have posted on this FREE website. I am grateful for all the research and reporting they do and I always try to sign up through their links so they can make something from it. A few months ago I invited them to breakfast when I was visiting Austin (I live an hour away in San Antonio) with my family as a small way of saying thanks. Unfortunately they couldn’t make it but I wanted to show them how much I appreciate what they do. Maybe you should try to do the same instead of being critical, especially when you’re incorrect.

  6. Quick question on the current Diamond Status Challenge — does anyone know if you have to *register* by May 31, 2015, or does the challenge have to be *completed* by then?

  7. Its funny – you can always tell when Chase has a new push/promo when all the bloggers on their payroll push/talk about the exact same thing within a week or two of each other…..

  8. I have the Chase Hyatt card. After meeting the minimum spending requirement in December, I was able to book 2 reward stays at Park Hyatt Sydney. The 2 free nights are good towarads “any” categories (unless Hyatt changed their T&C’s that I’m not aware of).

  9. PH Tokyo with kids was fun thanks to the card. 2 pm check out is also useful.

  10. Maybe its because I was just there, but Grand Hyatt in orlando should make this list, if not number 1.

  11. Contacted Hyatt customer service last week to get my Hyatt number as I do not have this credit card yet but have stayed before. The rep said its 2 free nights at any location and after renewal 1 free night in Cat 1-4

  12. Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills building is THE tallest building in Tokyo. The only taller structures are two towers: Tokyo Tower and Skytree.

    Oddly enough, it is only the fifth tallest building in Japan, losing out to three buildings in Osaka and one in Yokohama.

  13. Also, Andaz Tokyo is exempt from using points for a suite, or from using a Diamond Suite Upgrade to upgrade to a suite.
