Hyatt Adds More SLH Hotels Bookable With Points, Including In Jerusalem!

Hyatt has added 20 new SLH hotels to their portfolio today.

The list includes their first Jerusalem hotel since the old Hyatt Regency Jerusalem on Mount Scopus, which later became the Dan Jerusalem after Rehavam Ze’evi was assassinated there during the 2nd intafada.

The American Colony Hotel in Jerusalem is now bookable as a Hyatt category 6 property for 25K points per night. The hotel is rated as one of the top hotels in Jerusalem, but the location, just over the Green Line, may not be the greatest.

Looking at rooms for next spring, you can get a value of 2 cents per point. You can transfer points to Hyatt from Chase cards like Chase Chase Sapphire Preferred® Card® Card (currently offering 100,000 points!), Chase Sapphire Reserve®, or Ink Business Preferred® Credit Card. You can also earn Hyatt points and status with the Chase World Of Hyatt Credit Card.

This comes after Hyatt added The Norman Tel Aviv to their portfolio last year.

American Colony is in a very unsafe location, imho


The American colony hotel is over the “green line” ie over kvish 1 next to the olive tree Hotel don’t know think it’ll be that popular.


arent parts of french hill, Ramot, etc also on the other side of the line? I dont hear much safety concerns there?


Great find! I booked the Jerusalem hotel for my October trip. As Americans I feel fine staying over the green line. This lines up with my American Airlines flight for four 600$/ea. And all upgrade. I couldn’t have done it without you.


How did you get the upgrade?


Everyone stays in the grand Court which is a minute away and safe so I’m not sure why this should be any different.

Will have to look into it

El Capitan

The main question hasn’t been asked… Breakfast?


The Cellars-Hohenort website reads “Boutique Retreat Just Outside South Africa”…


I wouldn’t consider the value of the points for SLH based on Hyatt’s rate which is many times a lot more expensive the booking directly through the hotel.

Living in Israel

American Colony is considered upscale because dignitaries stay there. It’s very “old world.”
Not concerned about the location. As others wrote, there are a few popular hotels in the area. I have stayed in the Olive Tree, but wouldn’t walk there alone at night – although I would if I were staying near the Waldorf/Mamilla/Citadel. If you enjoy the Waldorf, American Colony is not your style.


Even though just a drop further away from the olive tree it will feel much further away. I had a meeting there once. Old world style, very pretty. Not a yid in sight. Not kosher.

Would not recommend.
