Finally! This is something I have been waiting for and looking forward to for quite a while! While Hyatt has a wonderful Points+Cash redemption method, it has always been necessary to call in to Hyatt or tweet them both to check for availability at that rate and to book these nights.
Hyatt’s Points+Cash Nights Now Bookable Online!
While the Hyatt phone and Twitter team are great and very quick, it is sometimes difficult to book at certain hotels if the Points+Cash reservations are not available on your preferred nights or at your preferred hotels. It requires you to start asking them to check other dates or other hotels and this availability can change often.
It is up to hotels to release this special reservation space and it is never clear what dates may or may not be available ahead of time. The ability to finally be able to book these rates online is both convenient and helpful to those of us who use the Points+Cash rate. Since this rate qualifies for elite night credit and is upgradeable to suites using Diamond Suite Upgrades (as well as being eligible for promos for credit), it is something I book with often.
Booking Points+Cash Reservations
To start, simply go to Hyatt and search for your hotel and travel dates. When you select the hotel you want, it will show you as one of the rates (if available) the Points+Cash option. Simply go ahead and book!
This is great news and I am excited about being able to do this online! However, I am not sure if all the hotels have this space online yet. The hotel I book at the most and have never had a problem getting a Points+Cash reservation does not show any of this space yet. So, keep in mind that you still may need to call in to book certain hotels. Hopefully it hits all the hotels soon.
