Here are a bunch of Hyatt hotels you want to book NOW before they go up in prices tomorrow! There are some real gems here!

While it is pretty much an annual thing for hotels to classify certain properties to go up or down in award categories, Hyatt made an unprecedented move this year. That move was to take some of their most sought after properties and hike them up into a category never occupied before by a Hyatt property – the mega-point Category 8. Today is the last day to book these before the prices (in points) go up 33% on standard rates.

You can read all about it in this previous post I wrote here but here is a summary of some of the places you should definitely book today if you want to save.

As far as booking, here is what you need to know. Any reservations made before March 22 at 8:00AM CDT will be honored at today’s prices. This means that you can book these properties at their current award prices now for as far out as the calendar lets you go – no problems! But, if you make any changes after March 22 at 8:00AM, you will be going off the new pricing.

Here are the 9 Hyatt properties that are jumping up to Category 8:

  • Park Hyatt New York – Category 7 to Category 8
  • Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort – Category 7 to Category 8
  • Alila Ventana Big Sur – Category 7 to Category 8
  • Alila Napa Valley – Category 7 to Category 8
  • Park Hyatt Sydney – Category 7 to Category 8
  • Park Hyatt Milan – Category 7 to Category 8
  • Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome – Category 7 to Category 8
  • Hotel Lou Pinet – Category 7 to Category 8
  • Park Hyatt Kyoto – Category 7 to Category 8
  • Park Hyatt Niseko – Category 7 to Category 8

In addition, there are other properties that are also must-book today ones. That is because, after tomorrow, they will no longer be bookable with the Hyatt Category 1-4 Free Night certificates (because they are going to Category 5). This is important because it is not just that these are going up a category but they will no longer be obtainable with a certificate that can be achieved pretty easily.
