4 More Hyatt Hotels Now Bookable In France


Update: The Concorde Lafayette has been rebranded as the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile and it is only a category 4 property which means you can use just 15,000 points or a Hyatt anniversary night to stay there. A suite would be 23,000 points. It’s located just 0.2 miles away from Le Shine and 0.4 miles away from Darjeeling, easily the 2 best glatt kosher meat restaurants you will find in Paris.  It’s also just a 1 mile walk to Chabad of Champs-Élysées which hosts wonderful friday night and shabbos day meals for locals and tourists alike.

The Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Méditerranée is a category 5 property at 18,000 points per night for a standard room or 27,000 for a suite.
Both are now bookable.

You can now use Hyatt points to book the Hotel du Louvre in Paris and the Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez in Cannes.
Coming soon will be the ability to book the Concorde Lafayette, Paris and the Palais de la Mediterranee, Nice.

The Hotel du Louvre is a bargain at a category 5 property. Searching a random date, May 22nd, the paid rate is 500EUR ($652USD) or 18,000 points. That’s a value of 3.62 cents per point.
Of course it has to compete with the excellent Park Hyatt Paris which comes in at 22,000 points per night and can go for as much as $1,000 per night.  A suite at the Park Hyatt is 33,000 points per night.

The Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez is a category 6 property which will set you back 22,000 points per night.

Hyatt’s top-end hotels are the best points bargain around as the most they can go for is 22,000 points for a standard room or 33,000 points for a suite.  Hilton and Starwood’s top hotels go for several times that.

You can earn Hyatt points with the Hyatt card though you will accumulate points much faster with Chase Ultimate Rewards cards due to purchase bonuses like 2.14x on travel and dining with Sapphire Preferred, 5x with rotating categories on Freedom, 2x on gas on Ink, and 5x on telecom, internet, cable, and office supply stores (including gift cards to hundreds of other stores) purchases on Ink.  Those points transfer instantly to Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio.  Chase Ultimate Rewards cards include the Freedom Mastercard, Freedom Visa, Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold, Ink Plus, and Ink Cash. You or your spouse need an active Sapphire Preferred, Ink Bold, or Ink Plus to actually transfer the points over.

Additionally though the Hyatt card gives 3 points per dollar for spending at Hyatt hotels you can earn points plus 5% cash back at Hyatt hotels in the US by using an American Express business card like the Starwood Preferred Guest® Business Credit Card from American ExpressThe Business Gold Rewards Card(R) from American Express OPEN, or the Business Platinum Card® from American Express OPEN.

Off topic- sorry. I have a freedom, sapphire preffered, Starwoods, and united card. My sapphire is almost one year old so I wanna cancel it to avoid the annual fee (like u suggested I believe). So 2 things: (1) is there any real reason to pay $95 for it? (2) if not- should I try to get approved for any other card (which would u reccomend) by using the line of credit from this card, instead of just canceling this card and that’s it?


Ça c’est cool!!!


Hi my name is judah kanwoitz im planing to rent a car for 2 months over the summer and in look to pay the least possible what do you suggest? im in israel right ow so you can reach me at 052 846 7971
thanks judah kanowitz


You can either apply for more cards and use it as leverage (close it or shift credit from it) to get approved or downgrade it to Freedom and open another Sapphire.


When will the hotel in Nice be available for booking through Hyatt?


Andaz Maui is bookable now, but they say you can’t book suite.


can you get a bonus more than once foe a saphire card?
how often?


Hey Dan
I’m going to Paris and Rome this summer. Which of these hotels would you recommend I book with points and do you have any suggestions for Rome?

Money Teacher

Is the May date a hint?



I agree that UR points at 2.14X are valuable since can be transferred to so many partners. However, Hyatt card gives you 3X spend at Hyatt hotels, so, if transfer UR points to Hyatt at 1X anyway, (which I do since I LOVE Hyatt), 3X Hyatt points better than 2.14X UR.


Right but at Hyatt in the US you should probably use an AMEX business card.


This post was timed perfectly! I’ve been planning a trip to paris for 4 nights starting May 23. Last week I booked the 23/24th of may with my Hyatt cc 2 night sign up bonus at the Vendome, but no availability in any Paris Hyatt properties for the 25th/26th. This opening up changed that! Thanks!

Now, if anyone has any suggestions on how to fly there for less than $1400/ticket, I’d be set, haha. (Aer Lingus appears booked for Boston/Dublin award redemption those dates, my origin location is South Florida).


@dan thanks! But what do u mean by get another sapphire? They’ll give me a new one and waive the annual fee??


@judahkanowitz:Would you happen to have a 800 number?


chase says the saphire bonus is only availble for first time card members
is this enforced?


Why would I want to go to Franceistan?


Sorry to tell you this but Darjeeling burnt down and has not reopened.


They will reopen later this month!


There are several synagogues closer to the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile (ex-Concorde Lafayette) than is the Chabad of Champs-Élysées. There are also several restaurants better than Le Shine within a 15 minute walk of the hotel. And there is a supermarket with a large kosher section in the shopping mall that is attached to the hotel.


Chabad of Champs-Élysées has a fantastic friday night dinner and shabbos lunch with a Rabbi that speak half a dozen languages fluently.
Do the other shuls? If so then name them to help others out.

Which other glatt kosher meat restaurants are better than the 2 I mentioned?


Does the Hyatt mentioned offer Shabbos accomodations (like non-electronic keys and non-sensored entrances)? We are planning a trip at the end of May and looking for a place to stay that would be “shabbosable”. We are open to any hotel or apartment and are looking for a place to prepay for glatt kosher shabbos meals. We are considering Chabad and are wondering if there are other options available. Thank you.


We can delivery to your a shabbes meal to your hotel
