Here are the First 8 Destination Hotels Joining the World of Hyatt Program

Written by Charlie

The Destination hotels are about to begin joining the World of Hyatt program and these are the first 8 hotels to do so. Find out which ones and when you can expect them to be in the Hyatt program.

Over the past few months, Hyatt has been incorporating the various brands from their Two Roads acquisition from last year. The last brand to be integrated into the World of Hyatt program as Destination properties and that integration is going to begin next month.

The Destination hotels are a great US presence for Hyatt, especially with many properties out west and in Hawaii. It will help to fill in gaps in some parts of the country while giving more variety in other popular locations. There is no word yet as to the hotel award categories these 8 hotels will be slotted into.

Also, we do not know yet which hotels will not be integrated into the World of Hyatt program. This has been the case with other hotels and will be the same here (that some hotels will not be in the World of Hyatt program – nothing new here as other chains have similar properties that are not involved in the loyalty programs).

But, here is what we do know as to the first 8 Destination hotels that are joining World of Hyatt and when that will be taking place.

Hyatt tells us that more will be joining later this year. We will know in a little over a month as to what hotels fit in the award categories.

Personally, for the runner in me, I can’t wait to see the Resort at Squaw Creek in Olympic Valley to be added to the Hyatt program. Not only is it near the starting line of the famed Western States 100 Mile ultramarathon but it is also the place where the 1960 Winter Olympics was held.

Again, I think Hyatt is doing an awesome job and in a unique way to enlarge their global footprint. Rather than just building new hotels within their own brands (which they are doing also), they have been adding unique properties from other brands around the world. This gives them access to a wider range of customers and interests and it makes staying at a hotel more than just a cookie cutter experience.

  • I’m sorry to see the first graf (Over the …) still positioned as “Advertiser Disclosure”.

    This surprises me.

    I’m sure the rest of the post was as good as your standard.
