New Hyatt hotels where you can get 500 extra points per night

I recently had the opportunity to stay at the Hyatt House Johannesburg Sandton in South Africa shortly after it opened. It was a pleasant surprise when I checked my World of Hyatt account activity after my stay and saw that I had earned far more points than I had expected. Upon closer inspection, I noticed an “opening bonus” of 2,000 points. It then dawned on me that Hyatt offers 500 bonus points per night on qualifying stays at new hotels, and I had unknowingly received this benefit.

What fascinated me even more was the fact that Hyatt doesn’t require its members to register for this promotion. This got me thinking that perhaps there are others out there who have forgotten about this promotion or were never aware of it in the first place. In either case, I believe it’s important to share this information so that everyone can take advantage of this World of Hyatt promotion.

So, here’s what you should know about this promotion and the newest properties where you can earn 500 bonus points per night.

The promotion is quite simple. World of Hyatt members receive 500 bonus points per night for qualifying stays at select hotels that are new to the Hyatt portfolio. However, there is a catch. You must stay within a set time frame to earn the bonus points, typically in the first few months after the hotel opens. Specifically, you will only earn bonus points if your checkout date falls within the offer period for the specific hotel.

To ensure that you receive the bonus points, you must provide your World of Hyatt number when you check in. Additionally, you must either pay an eligible rate or redeem a free night award, which includes redeeming World of Hyatt points. It’s important to note that you will only earn bonus points for one room per night.

According to the terms of this promotion, it may take three to four weeks for the bonus points to appear in your account. However, in my experience, Hyatt typically posts the new hotel bonus points simultaneously with the other points earned from your stay.

Now that you understand how the promotion works, let’s take a look at the eligible new Hyatt hotels where you can earn 500 extra points per night.

As of now, there are seven hotels in the United States that are participating in this promotion. These include the Hyatt Place Albany in New York, the Hyatt Place Boise/Meridian in Idaho, the Hyatt Place St. Augustine/Vilano Beach in Florida, the Hyatt Place Flagstaff in Arizona, the Hyatt Place Nashville/Green Hills in Tennessee, the Hyatt Place Munster in Indiana, and the Thompson Houston in Texas.

In Mainland China, there are 13 participating hotels, including UrCove Hangzhou North Grand Canal, UrCove Hangzhou Xiaoshan Jiangnan Technology City, UrCove Tianjin Drum Tower, UrCove Xi’an Hi-Tech Software Park, Hyatt Centric Gaoxin Xi’an, UrCove Shanghai Pudong East, UrCove Cangzhou, UrCove Shenzhen Bay Eco-Tech Park, Hyatt Regency Changshu Kuncheng Lake, UrCove Foshan Downtown, UrCove Chengdu Wenshu Monastery Taikoo Li, UrCove Beijing Changping, and UrCove Lhasa Potala Palace.

There are also 12 hotels in other regions participating in this promotion. These include the Hyatt Regency Pravets Resort in Bulgaria, the Andaz Macau in Macau, the Hyatt Place Kuala Lumpur Bukit Jalil in Malaysia, the Secrets Tulum Resort & Spa in Mexico, the Lindner Hotel Dusseldorf Airport in Germany, the Hyatt Place Johor Bahru Paradigm Mall in Malaysia, the Grand Hyatt Kuwait Residences in Kuwait City, the Hyatt Place Bodh Gaya in India, the Hotel Toranomon Hills in Tokyo, the Hotel FlĆ¼ela Davos in Switzerland, the Park Hyatt Marrakech in Morocco, and the Hyatt Regency Nairobi Westlands in Kenya.

The 500 Hyatt points you earn per night when booking an eligible rate or free night are worth approximately $8.50, based on TPG’s valuations. Therefore, this promotion could be the tiebreaker when deciding where to stay on your next trip to a location with a new Hyatt hotel.

It’s important to note that this new hotel bonus should stack with other World of Hyatt promotions, as these promotions typically require you to book an eligible rate.

In conclusion, staying at a new Hyatt hotel not only allows you to earn 500 extra points per night but can also be a fun experience, as you often get to stay in a room with new furnishings. However, it’s important to keep in mind that new hotels may still be working through some issues, and not everything on-site may be completely functional.

If you’re looking to redeem your World of Hyatt points for your stay, you’ll find many low-category options on the current list of new hotels, which includes 16 Hyatt Category 1 hotels, seven Category 2 hotels, and one Category B all-inclusive resort.

So, the next time you plan your trip and come across a new Hyatt hotel, make sure to take advantage of this promotion and earn those extra points. Happy travels!
