I reached out late last night to someone at Hyatt to figure out if the “My Hyatt Rate” prices I was seeing on the website were part of an existing sale or something new.
Turns out the rate is not just a sale. My contact at Hyatt told me that this actually a test. In a few select markets they are testing rates up to 15% cheaper for Hyatt Gold Passport members made through Hyatt.com. There’s no indication whether the test will become something more permanent, but it’s great to see Hyatt continuing to explore these possibilities.
It also reiterates that you should be checking the hotel chain’s website instead of just relying on an online travel agency such as Expedia. It doesn’t take much longer to check more than one source to make sure you’re getting the best rate.
Meanwhile, I’ll keep hoping we see more of this on Hyatt.com:
