This time around, we have a heavy dose of hotels in Europe again (including a few in Croatia) and more in Asia. The US has not received any at this time but we do have the first Hyatt-award bookable hotels in New Zealand, which is great news! There are a total of 3 hotels in New Zealand and 4 in Australia. That includes a couple of hotels eligible for the free night certificates!

What World of Hyatt Members Get at SLH Properties

Read: My Experience at a Small Luxury Hotel as a Hyatt Member

Booking at any of these Hyatt properties as a basic member will actually give you much more than booking at an actual Hyatt property. Here is what all World of Hyatt members receive at these properties when booked through Hyatt:

  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Daily Complimentary Continental Breakfast for two guests
  • Room Upgrade (one category at check-in if available)
  • Early check-in (noon, based upon availability at check-in)
  • Late check-out (2:00pm, based upon availability at check-in)

The breakfast and upgrade is something that only Hyatt Globalist members get at regular Hyatt properties so those are some nice reasons to book SLH properties through Hyatt!
