Upcoming Hyatt Award changes

I was disappointed to see recent updates on Hyatt Award redemptions - while this is a yearly occurrence, the number of properties changing is substantial. 

Our annual award chart updates will take effect on March 28, meaning the number of points required for a free night at some hotels is changing. No new Categories have been added, and the points required for each Category will remain the same.

We wanted to be sure to let you know ahead of time so that you can plan ahead and get the most out of your points. The chart below includes only the hotels that are moving up (requiring more points) or moving down (requiring fewer points) starting March 28.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • When you book before March 28, your reservations will follow the current free night award chart found here.
  • Reservations made on or after March 28 will follow the new free night award chart and incorporate the updates noted below.
  • Existing reservations for nights on or after March 28 will receive a refund for the point difference if the hotel moved to a lower category

The changes that will likely affect me the most are at the Park Hyatt Vienna (moving to Cat7) and Park Hyatt Zurich (moving to Cat8).
