World of Hyatt Category Changes Announcement

Hyatt program is generally known for mild category adjustments, and this one is no exception. Normally, I would wait till Friday recap to mention it, but time is of the essence in this case. As of this Wednesday, some properties will shift categories.

Going up:

Going down:

Two properties that most folks will probably be interested in are Hyatt Place Long Island/New York City and Hyatt Place Orlando Airport  My family has stayed in the latter property and you can see my detailed review. I’ve mentioned that it’s a very good deal for only 5,000 Hyatt points per night, so I’m not surprised that it will soon cost 8,000 points. I actually just made a reservation here for next year (a last hoorah, I guess). At 8,000 points per night, I’m going to have to look elsewhere in the future.

If you are planning a trip to Miami beach, you will probably be happy that The Confidante Hotel  will soon be a category 4. That means that your annual renewal Hyatt credit card certificates will be valid at this property. I’m very happy that Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Bonita Springs will remain  a category 4. At 15,000 points per night (or via renewal certificate), this property is a steal.

Just a reminder: you can now refer friends if you have Chase Hyatt Visa and get 10k points per approval. Access your link here Keep in mind that if you do a dummy booking on, there is an offer there that comes with $50 credit.

I have a personal referral link for Hyatt card and if you get approved, I’ll be happy to send you $60 once I get the points deposited in my account. Just let me know when you’ve applied so I can keep track of it.  Here is my personal referral link  As always, look at other bonus offers before pulling the trigger.

Readers, are you planning to book anything before Wednesday?

  1. Overall, the devaluations weren’t too bad. My heart skipped a beat as I scanned to see about Coconut Point. The Miami beachfront one that is now a Cat 4 looks interesting.

    • Same here! The changes aren’t bad for Floridians, except for MCO property. Funny enough, I made a reservation there a few months ago. Decided to double check in view of this announcement. Guess what? I got the date wrong. Good thing I checked because I was able to change it and lock in 5,000-points rate.
      The Miami Beach property indeed looks nice. Unfortunately, my husband hates Miami. I doubt I can convince him to drive down there.
