Hyatt has partnered with SLH Hotels for more than 5 years and greatly expanded Hyatt’s footprint, but that will soon come to an end.
Hilton announced today that they will partner with SLH and you will be able to earn and redeem Hilton points at participating SLH properties in the near future. As with Hyatt, not all SLH hotels will participate in the partnership.
A Hyatt spokesperson shares with DansDeals that,
“In the coming months, we plan to integrate many Mr & Mrs Smith hotels into Hyatt channels, offering our guests and World of Hyatt members more luxury and boutique accommodations in new destinations around the globe. We will share details on this exciting integration shortly. As our business continues to evolve and we strive to offer our guests and members new ways to explore the world, we have mutually made the decision to end our relationship with SLH in the near future. At this time, World of Hyatt members can still book participating SLH Hotels on Hyatt’s booking channels, and nothing changes as of now for existing World of Hyatt member reservations. More information on the end of this relationship will be shared with guests and members in the coming months.”
Hyatt will own the Mr and Mrs Smith Hotel booking platform, though not the hotels. We’ll have to wait and see what that program integration will look like.
If you want to use Hyatt points for SLH Hotels, now is the time to do so. You can always cancel and rebook with Hilton points if there’s a better value that way, but my guess is that it will be a worse value with Hilton points.
Here is how much some SLH hotels cost with Hyatt for a night on 3/10:
- The Cellars-Hohenort, Cape Town: 15K points
- Flemings Mayfair, London: 20K points
- American Colony Hotel Jerusalem: 25K points
- Ca’ Sagredo Hotel Venice: 35K points
- Hotel Regency Florence: 35K points
- Norman Tel Aviv: 40K points
- L’Escale Resort Marina & Spa, Seychelles: 40K points
Will you book any SLH hotels before the Hyatt partnership ends?
