A couple weeks ago, Hyatt announced that they’ve made a move to partner with another hotel chain!
You’ll be able to earn and redeem Hyatt points at Small Luxury Hotels of the World. And receive elite night credits! But your Hyatt elite status is not recognized.
We don’t yet know if folks with elite status from Small Luxury Hotels of the World will gain any benefit when they stay at Hyatt hotels, but probably not. Here’s what we do know.
Use Hyatt Points at 500 More Hotels
Small Luxury Hotels of the World has ~500 hotels and resorts worldwide. So if this new partnership extends to all locations, you’ll have 500 new hotels to use with your Hyatt points!
The hotel chain has its own loyalty program with the following benefits.
Now THAT’S what elite status should look like! Daily free breakfast, early check-in, late check-out, room upgrades after just 1 stay. And for the mysterious “SLH Birthday Gift”, you could receive a free night. You can read more about that here.
Again, we don’t have a ton of details about reciprocal benefits, like if you can redeem free night certificates issued by Small Luxury Hotels of the World with Hyatt, and vice versa. Probably not, but fingers crossed.
Hyatt points are laughably easy to earn. For starters, Hyatt has its own credit card, The World of Hyatt Credit Card. Hyatt is also a transfer partner of Chase Ultimate Rewards points. So you can earn a TON of points by opening cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card and Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card.
We’ll let you know when more details pop up about this great partnership. Let us know if you’ve had any experience with Small Luxury Hotels of the World!
