Updated 22 May 2021


In our comprehensive World of Hyatt guide, we noted that It is not as easy to earn points with World of Hyatt as it is on other programs. However, redemptions for points earned provide very good value.

The World of Hyatt program has promotions for points purchases and for stays. Although not as frequent as for some other programs, they do offer very good value for lovely locations within the Hyatt portfolio.

We look at the history of their promo's while shining a light on current ones.

Are current promotions good value?
Are the offers seasonal?  When do the best offers usually occur?
