Today is the last day to book Hyatt hotel award stays at the old price.  The new award chart starts from tomorrow & increases the number of points needed for many hotels.

See this post for more details on the changes to the Hyatt Award chart.

The good news is that even if you book a hotel today (at the old prices), you have until February 15, 2014 to make changes to your reservation, and still pay the old price!

Park Hyatt Milan
Emily Loved the Park Hyatt in Milan, but it is Increasing From 22,000 Points to 30,000 Points a Night

Change Highlights

– No changes to standard room redemptions for category 1 to 4 hotels.

Category 5 hotels increase by 2,000 Hyatt points for a regular room from 18,000 points to 20,000 points.

Category 6 hotels increase by 3,000 Hyatt points for a regular room from 22,000 points to 25,000 points.

– 6 hotels in a new category 7 which cost 30,000 points for a regular room instead of 22,000 points.

Club Room & Suite upgrades on paid stays increase from 3,000 points and 6,000 points for up to 4 days, to 3,000 and 6,000 points for each night.

– Redeeming Hyatt points for Club Rooms & Suites becomes MUCH more expensive.  But let’s face it.  Not many of us pay extra points for a suite or club room.

6 Hotels to Cost 30,000 Points (36% Increase) In New Category 7

6 of Hyatt’s most expensive and talked about Park Hyatt hotels will cost 30,000 points for a standard room, from January 7, 2014 instead of 22,000 points.  This is an increase of 8,000 points or 36%.

Remember that you can still book at the old rate of 22,000 points today!

Emily and I have stayed in the Milan, Paris and Zurich Park Hyatt hotels.  We’re glad we redeemed points to stay in a $600+ hotel room which wouldn’t be possible if we paid cash.

Park Hyatt Vendome Paris
The Park Hyatt Vendome in Paris is a Gorgeous Hotel!

Bottom Line

You still have a day to book your Hyatt hotel award stays at the old rates.  If you book by today, you have until February 15, 2014 to make changes to your reservation and still pay the old price!

See this post for more details on the changes to the Hyatt award chart.  I just booked a few trips last night!

far north trader, Yeah it offered me the same upgrades. I just wasn’t interested in 7 nights times 80 euros for just the deluxe room! 🙂 Unless I’m missing something it didn’t seem that much of an upgrade for ~$760 USD… feel free to sell me on it though if you know more details! I just wish I could have spent 6000 points and upgraded to a suite like you could do on paid stays.

@Jeffrey – That will be a wonderful trip! You have to call Hyatt to make the reservation with the free nights. And at the hotel, you give them your credit card for incidental expenses (the room cost is covered with the free nights).

@Josh – You could do a cash and points award and then upgrade with Diamond suite certificates if you are a Diamond member.

@WB – No fees for date changes until February 15, 2014.

@dotti cahill – We’re back home now!

@King of the Flat Top Grill (Evanston) – LOL at your handle! That sounds like an awesome trip and I agree with your preference for the Grand Hyatt Tokyo which is closer to the action than the Park Hyatt Tokyo.

King of the Flat Top Grill (Evanston)

Thanks to your blog and a couple others, I (who only started travel hacking last month) now have two nights booked at the Grand Hyatt Tokyo (closer to the action) and one at the Park Hyatt Tokyo (I want the experience of staying there) for a very easy-to-collect 66K in URs. I also have all the points I need to fly round trip in business class from NYC and (using Avios) to jaunt to Hong Kong and Thailand. Really appreciate it!

wow loved ur travel adventures …do u ever miss home?

what if you want to cancel and not merely reschedule the travel–I assume you get the points back but are there any associated fees?

far north trader

Josh, maybe check your reservation. I just booked it as well and it offered the eupgrade to me for cash, so the deluxe room was an 80Euro upgrade (after that, it gets pretty ugly!). Unfortunately, not confirmed until 24 hours before arrival.
