You have to book your 2015 Hyatt stays by January 21, 2015, even for dates later in the year, to pay rates from the 2014 award chart.

This matters most for folks who are booking 1 of the 22 hotels that are moving to a higher category:

That’s because if you wait to book on January 22, 2015 or later, you’ll pay more Hyatt points.

Other Changes

On January 1, 2015, Hyatt discontinued the My Elite Rate program which gave Hyatt Platinum and Diamond elite status holders a 20% discount off the Best Available rate.

But you can still book Points + Cash rates which means you can use less Hyatt points on stays.

Hyatt Points + Cash Rates Means You Pay Less of This

And you will NOT get bonus points if you don’t get your confirmed bed type.

Bottom Line

You have 1 week to book your 2015 Hyatt stays at the old award chart rates before the award chart changes on January 22, 2015.

So if you’re booking 1 of the 22 hotels that will cost more, you should book by January 21, 2015.

Folks who booked 1 of the 48 hotels that are going down a category will get a refund of the point difference.

And you can no longer book a My Elite Rate or get points for a guaranteed bed type.

But you can still book award nights with Points + Cash.
