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 Sapphire Preferred (currently offering 100,000 points!), Chase Sapphire Reserve, or Chase Ink Preferred. 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.
