Luckily, this set of adjustments hasn’t led to a lot to disappoint most Hyatt loyalists, however with Milestone Rewards and Visitor of Honor advantages now trying very totally different to how they regarded final yr, now appears a superb time to go over simply what these adjustments are.

Ranging from 1 January 2024, Hyatt has introduced in a couple of adjustments:

A ‘2K Subsequent Keep‘ perk has been launched which, when chosen by a World of Hyatt member, will see them earn 2,000 bonus factors once they full an eligible keep at a Hyatt Place, Hyatt Home, Caption by Hyatt, or UrCove resort inside 180 days of the perk being issued.

These will be earned on the 20 night time and 30 night time Milestones and two eligible stays will likely be required to earn the 4,000 bonus factors if two 2K Subsequent Keep perks are issued.

A ‘Miraval Additional Night time‘ per has been launched as an choice for these reaching the dizzying heights of 100, 110, 120, 130, 140, and 150 elite night time credit. This certificates, if chosen, offers the holder a complimentary second night time when a reserving an eligible keep at any Miraval property.

The Miraval Additional Night time Award is legitimate for 180 days from the date it was issued and have to be redeemed for a reservation with a checkout date on or earlier than the expiration of the award.

An ‘Final Free Night time Award‘ can now be earned by crediting a watch watering 150 elite night time credit to your World of Hyatt account and because the identify suggests, this award can be utilized in trade for a free night time in a regular room at any Class 1-8 resort, Class A-F all-inclusive resort or Miraval resort that participates within the World of Hyatt program.

The Final Free Night time Award is legitimate for 180 days from the date it was issued and have to be redeemed for a reservation with a checkout date on or earlier than the expiration of the award.

Money credit for FIND experiences (valued at between $25 and $300) can now be chosen at every Milestone between 20 nights and 90 nights.

A Visitor of Honor perk is now awarded on the 40 night time milestone (that means that Visitor of Honor perks are now not solely out there to top-tier Globalist elites) and additional Visitor of Honor perks are awarded on the 60 70, 80, 90, 110, 120,130, & 140 night time Milestones.

The Visitor of Honor choice has been added as a result of, going ahead, Globalists are usually not going to have the ability to make a limiteless variety of Visitor of Honor Bookings (I’ll focus on this can be a little later).

A Suite Improve Award legitimate for a keep of as much as 7 nights can now be chosen when hitting the 40 night time Milestone.

The $50 Hyatt reward card and 10,000 factors saving on a FIND expertise are now not choices for these hitting the 40 night time Milestone.

Alongside the two Suite Upgrades awards which have at all times been on supply for individuals who hit the 50 night time Milestone, 5,000 Bonus factors have additionally been added as an choice … though I doubt many individuals will really select this as their 50 night time perk.

A second Class 1-7 Free Night time Award can now be chosen by anybody hitting the 100 night time Milestone (the primary certificates remains to be earned as ordinary on the 60 night time Milestone)

New Milestones have been added at 110, 120, 130, 140, and 150 nights.

In abstract, that is what the World of Hyatt Milestone Rewards now appear to be:

General, these are largely optimistic adjustments however there are specific issues I believe Hyatt may have carried out higher and I’ll be discussing my ideas on these in a separate article.

Visitor of Honor adjustments

Traditionally, Hyatt’s Visitor of Honor profit has allowed any top-tier (Globalist) elite member to redeem their factors for stays for family and friends whereas additionally sharing their elite standing advantages with their family and friends on that keep (of as much as 7 nights).

Up till now, the Globalist member has been in a position to make as many of those bookings as they please however the sharing of elite standing advantages has been restricted to factors bookings solely.

Not any extra.

For 2024, the principles surrounding the Visitor of Honor profit have been modified considerably.

  • The Visitor of Honor profit can now not be used on limitless bookings.
  • For 2024, current Globalist members have been given 5 Visitor of Honor Certificates (on the time of writing, these are usually not seen in my account) and might earn extra by the Milestone Rewards.
  • From 2025 onwards, the variety of Visitor of Honor bookings {that a} World of Hyatt member will have the ability to make will likely be restricted to the variety of Visitor of Honor perks earned by the Milestone Rewards.
  • The best to make as much as 10 Visitor of Honor will be earned by the brand new Milestone Rewards.
  • The Visitor of Honor profit can now be utilized to money stays.

These Visitor of Honor perks earned by Milestone Rewards are legitimate for the membership yr by which they’re earned + an additional 14 months (e.g. any Visitor of Honor perks earned in 2025 will likely be legitimate for stays made by February 2027).

Per Hyatt: Visitor of Honor Awards will be gifted (by your account or by calling a World Care Middle) to a different World of Hyatt member. As soon as gifted, that member can e-book their very own Visitor of Honor keep by hyatt.com or by calling a World Care Middle. You too can e-book your Visitor of Honor’s keep for them by calling a World Care Middle.

As I famous earlier, the choice to redeem/reward Visitor of Honor advantages is at present not but stay on the Hyatt web site.

One other key change to notice is that whereas the recipient of a Visitor of Honor reserving will proceed to earn elite night time credit for his or her keep (in the identical means as if it was only a regular reserving), the World of Hyatt member who presents the Visitor of Honor reserving will now earn one elite night time credit score per Visitor of Honor keep (not night time) that was gifted and redeemed.

Backside line

As of yesterday, the principles surrounding the World of Hyatt Milestone Rewards and Hyatt’s Visitor of Honor advantages have modified. The adjustments are largely optimistic with Visitor of Honor advantages turning into extra versatile and with extra Milestone Rewards on supply, but it surely’s not all sunshine and rainbows.

There are a couple of areas by which Hyatt may have made these adjustments higher with out going excessive and being overly beneficiant, however my ideas on these must wait for one more upcoming article.
