Related: Free Trial Period Of Platinum Elite Status At Hyatt
First off, a little background information on the Hyatt program:
Hyatt has 2 elite levels, Platinum and Diamond.
Platinum status normally requires 5 stays in a year. It is also given out for free (but only once in a lifetime) as a status match to anyone with elite status at another hotel chain or to Continental Presidential Plus Mastercard holders.
Platinum status gets you free internet access, the best room within your reserved category, and bonus points at Hyatt hotels.
Diamond status normally requires 25 stays in a year. It is also given out for free (but only once in a lifetime) as a status match to anyone with at least 10 stays at another hotel chain.
Diamond status gets you upgraded to Regency or Grand club rooms based on availability at check-in. As a diamond member you also get 4 confirmed upgrades to a suite per year.
If you already have Platinum status you can login to your Hyatt account, use the contact Hyatt Gold Passport form and ask “to be enrolled in the 2DTRIAL2 promotion for the upgrade to Diamond membership”.
You must send an email requesting Diamond status by 08/30. You will be given Diamond status through 12/31/09 as well as 4 electronic suite upgrade certificates. In order to maintain the Diamond status through 02/11 you will have to have 15 stays by 12/31/09.
If you already have Diamond status you can also ask to be enrolled in the 2DTRIAL2 promotion and you’ll be able to requalify with only 15 stays instead of 25.
Last year Hyatt’s incredible faster free nights promotion ran from 09/01-12/31, all indications are that they will probably aim for a similar timeframe this year, so it shouldn’t be too hard to hit 15 stays…
