Over the past year Hyatt has been steadily growing its partnership with Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) and today there are 50+ new SLH hotels where you can use and earn Hyatt points. Hyatt has now partnered with more than 300 SLH properties, which is great considering that when you book SLH partners through Hyatt (cash or points) you’ll get complimentary continental breakfast for two, free Wi-Fi and (if available) early check-in, late check-out and a room upgrade.
To celebrate, Hyatt is giving members an opportunity to earn 3,000 bonus points for paid stays at SLH properties through March 2020.

Good deal or not?
Award stays with Hyatt often count toward promotions like this one, but that’s not the case here. This diminishes value of the promotion a bit because I always like the idea of booking a Category 1 location for 5,000 points and getting 3,000 points back. But when you consider the benefits you get at SLH properties when booking through Hyatt (free breakfast, etc.) this is a solid deal.
Before you book you’ll want to do a quick price comparison to make sure you’re getting the best deal by booking through Hyatt. I did a quick search of SLH partner locations in Rome and found that (including taxes) Hyatt had the same prices or cheaper compared to the SLH site. This makes booking with Hyatt a better option in most cases because the cheapest SLH rates were non-refundable and did not allow changes.

For eligible room rates, dining and spa services at participating Hyatt hotels you normally earn 5x Hyatt points (10x Hyatt points on FIND experiences and Exhale purchases), so this promotion amounts to 15x Hyatt points at Hyatt Place hotels and 10x Hyatt points at other locations. This promotion can be stacked with other Hyatt promotions like the 500 bonus points at new Hyatt hotels deal, bonus points for booking through the Hyatt app, double elite night credits at Hyatt Zilara and Ziva locations and the credit of up to $250 (for Hyatt cardholders) at Ziva and Zilara resorts.
This an excellent opportunity to add to your balance of Hyatt points, especially if you have the The World Of Hyatt Credit Card which earns 4x points on Hyatt spending and comes with Discoverist status (10% bonus on base points).
