Hyatt Adds Earning And Redemption For Another 56 Small Luxury Hotels

Hyatt continues to increase their footprint with the expansion of their relationship with Small Luxury Hotels of the World.  Just about 2 months ago they announced the first 54 properties from Small Luxury Hotels that were now available for World of Hyatt members to earn and redeem at.

This is not the only announcement Hyatt has made recently to grow.  They announced the acquisition of Two Roads Hospitality, which is due to add about 70 properties worldwide.  Most of those hotels fall under “luxury” or “interesting”, great additions to the family.  Now, Hyatt has announced another 56 Small Luxury Hotels that are now part of the World of Hyatt partnership.

Small Luxury Hotels of the World

As a refresher, here’s what members can expect from the Small Luxury Hotels partnership.

Earning and Redemption:

  • World of Hyatt members earn 5 Base Points per $1 USD spent on eligible room revenue
  • World of Hyatt members will receive their standard tier Bonus Points on eligible room revenue spend (10% Discoverist, 20% Explorist, 30% Globalist)
  • Qualifying nights at SLH hotels will count toward earning World of Hyatt elite-tier status
  • World of Hyatt members can redeem points to use for free night awards on SLH hotel reservations; each SLH property has been categorized into Hyatt’s existing hotel award chart, which includes a new Category 8 at 40,000 points

On the earning and redemption side, this matches existing expectations for members.  They’ll earn the same number of points they would normally earn and be able to redeem at roughly 50 hotels at the outset.  Stays at participating SLH hotels will count towards elite status qualification.  Hyatt confirmed that some hotels will start in a new Category 8, costing 40,000 points per night for award redemptions.  We knew that a category 8 was coming.  Many folks think there will be category creep from existing category 7 Hyatt hotels into this new category.  I haven’t been able to dig into all the SLH properties yet to see how much award redemptions will cost. Stay tuned for that.

Member Benefits:

Participating SLH properties will provide the following on-property benefits to all World of Hyatt members:

  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Daily Complimentary Continental Breakfast
  • Room Upgrade (one category at check-in if available)
  • Early check-in (noon, based upon availability at check-in)
  • Late check-out (2:00pm, based upon availability at check-in)

The Final Two Pennies

I’ll be digging more into these hotels in the near future to hunt for value and new places I want to add to my bucket list.  This brings to 110 the total number of SLH properties where World of Hyatt members can earn and redeem points. And, there’s still roughly 400 potential properties we could see folded in.  An increase of 110 properties wouldn’t mean much for Marriott’s footprint but it is meaningful for Hyatt.  With this addition, Hyatt now has roughly 950 hotels where you can earn and redeem.  That’s double the size of the chain from when I first started staying at Hyatt 7 or 8 years ago.  And, we’re going to see even more soon!  This is another win for loyal Hyatt members.

  1. Thanks for the good news, Edward. This continues to fill the gap in western Europe. I’m thrilled to see the U. S. properties added. I will be sure to stay at the Wentworth – a great hotel. I’m very glad I stuck with Hyatt. They have really stepped up benefits for the elites.
