You can determine the category of every Hyatt hotel via this link.  Just toggle the category number to view other categories and expand the regions on the bottom to include hotels in the Asia/Pacific region or the Europe, Africa & Middle East region.

When booking a points+cash reservation I included a metric in the chart above that shows the rate that you’re effectively buying your points back at.

You’ll notice that points+cash stays are a worse value with the 10% off chart. That’s because you only get 10% of your points back, not the cash used.

The category 6 rate is normally the biggest points+cash bargain. You “buy” back or save 12.5K points per night for $150. Effectively you paid just 1.2 cents per point ($150/12,500) to save those 12.5K points per night. The category 1 and 7 points + cash deals are normally the worst as you are effectively paying 2 cents per point.
With 10% off the category 6 rate falls to 1.33 cents per point and the category 1 and 7 rates fall to 2.22 cents per point.

Note that standard awards have no blackouts or capacity controls on standard rooms and suites. However points+cash reservations are capacity controlled. A nice benefit of points+cash rooms is that they are considered a paid rate, so they qualify for all promotions that apply to paid hotel stays and you can use a diamond suite upgrade certificate to confirm them into a suite.

Suite nights require a 3 night minimum stay and can only be booked over the phone.

Dan,

I booked 7 nights at Andaz Maui with points starting next wed. Do you think I can call to cancel and rebook? 2 of the 7 nights was used via free nights from CC. I would call and cancel that and use points instead. This would save me 17.5K points. Thoughts on doing this?

Tzadik

Will it work on stays booked already, or will need to rebook?

Moot

Any chance that this makes a difference at all if you are using a free sign up night?

@Tzadik: I just called and spoke to an agent who seemed knowledgeable. She confirmed what the terms say, that any points redeemed between now and 31/10 will qualify, regardless of when the reservation was made.

Ari

@Tzadik: According to the Hyatt rep I spoke with it probably will but cancel and rebook to be safe.

Ari

@David: Just explain it to them. They’ll cancel and rebook over the phone immediately.

If I am not currently a cardholder, can I sign up now and take advantage?

HelpMe

Will bookings made before registration count? Will GOH bookings count?
