Not all that long ago, Hyatt had a fantastic “My Elite Rate” that saved up to 20% off rates for elite members. That has been replaced with an-up-to-15% rate for members. However, for a limited-time, you can lock in a rate that is up to 20% off the standard rates, but you had better be sure about your reservation because it only works for prepaid reservations.
New Hyatt Member Rate Offers Up to a 20% Discount for a Limited-Time
Note: I found one instance where the discount is actually 22% so check out your interested hotels now!
Here are the details of this new Hyatt member rate for advanced purchase reservations:
- The rate begins November 1, 2018 and can be used until January 31, 2019
- The stay date must be between November 8 and have a checkout date before February 28, 2019
- The rate is for Advance Purchase reservations which means you must book at least seven days in advance
- Full prepayment is required at the time of reservation and nonrefundable.
- The rate is “up to 20%”
Is This a Good Deal or No?
On the face of it, I would say it has the potential to be a good deal, especially since it is replacing the normal 15% off advanced rate during this promotion. However, the part I am not a big fan of is something else in the details that states “pricing and availability for this new rate will continue to be flexible based on each hotel’s individual needs.” In other words, that “up to” part of the discount.
This means the most you will save by booking advance will be 20% off the standard rate but you may not save that much, all depending on the hotel’s needs. I don’t mind paying in advance for a 20% discount, but I value my flexibility too much if the rate at a particular hotel ends up being more around 10%.
So, go ahead and start playing around with dates to see what deals are out there! Also take note that the standard Member Rate for up to 10% off will still be available as well (and this does not require paying in advance).
Of course, you will need to be a World of Hyatt member to see any of these savings!
