Last Chance for these 18 Hyatt Hotels with Hyatt Free Night Certificates

Written by Charlie

If you want to redeem your Hyatt free night certificates for any of these 18 hotels, you need to do that now! Shortly, it will no longer be possible with the new Hyatt category changes.

Today is the day that Hyatt’s mega changes are going into affect for 259 hotels. This can be good news for some hotels but it is also bad news for a host of hotels as well. That is because many hotels will be going up in point requirements.

Last Chance for These 18 Hyatt Hotels with Hyatt Free Night Certificates

The good news about that is that it will only cost 5,000 more points per night at the most on some of these hotels. The bad news is that 18 Hyatt hotels are moving from Category 4 to a Category 5. This will place those hotels outside of the range of redemptions for the Hyatt free night certificates so it is time to book those right now!

What Hyatt Free Night Certificates?

Hyatt has free night certificates that are good for a single free night (any night) at a Category 1 – 4 property. Here are ways you can earn a Hyatt free night certificate:

  • Staying 30 nights in a year at Hyatt properties
  • Staying in 5 different Hyatt brands
  • Staying in another 5 different Hyatt brands
  • An anniversary night on both the regular Hyatt credit card and the World of Hyatt card
  • By spending $15,000 in a year on the World of Hyatt card

The sweet spot, as for saving points, is for Hyatt category 4 hotels. Those hotels would require 15,000 points if you did not have a free night certificate.

Here are the 18 hotels that will be no longer be bookable with free night certificates as of March 18 at 11:00 CT.

It is a shame to another Park Hyatt in South Korea move out of range with the free night certificates. Also, the Park Hyatt in Hamburg (a popular choice) is also no longer going to be bookable with free night certificates. More disappointing moves are the Andaz Papagayo, the Grand Hyatt DFW, and the Hyatts in Seattle.

  • It’s a real shame to see so many of the hotels leaving the free night certificate list. I am particularly sad to see Park Hyatt Hamburg go. Fingers crossed that there’s aren’t any more change on the horizon for a while
