It looks like Hyatt is getting ready to make public their 2015 award chart changes.
You can see the full list here. Here’s a quick breakdown:
The changes go into affect for reservations made on or after January 22, 2015.
22 hotels are going up in category. Notables:
Park Hyatt Maldives goes from 6 to 7
Grand Hyatt Sao Paolo goes from 3 to 4
Andaz Amsterdam goes from 5 to 6
48 hotels are going down in category, including:
Hyatt French Quarter from 5 to 4
Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress from 5 to 4 (closest to Disney World)
MGM Grand from 5 to 4
Mandalay Bay from 6 to 5
Park Hyatt Washington from 6 to 5
More on this later. Posting from the train now, and my stop is coming up.
Overall, this doesn’t strike me as that bad. PH Maldives probably should have already been a 7. I think given the strength of the economy and the rise in occupancy, this could have been worse.
