Hyatt Announces Changes to Hotel Categories

After announcing their 2019 hotel category changes, 259 Hyatt hotels will change categories after March 18, 2019

No new categories have been added to the eight existing categories and points per category will stay the same. For reference, the categories and points per category will remain as shown by the chart below:

Category 1 = 5,000 World of Hyatt points
Category 2 = 8,0000 World of Hyatt points
Category 3 = 12,000 World of Hyatt points
Category 4 = 15,000 World of Hyatt points
Category 5 = 20,000 World of Hyatt points
Category 6 = 25,000 World of Hyatt points
Category 7 = 30,000 World of Hyatt points
Category 8 = 40,000 World of Hyatt points

130 hotels will move up to higher categories, and 129 will shift to lower categories. Free Night point requirements will not change for all-inclusive resorts and Miraval Resorts. This is a drastic change for 1/2 of Hyatt’s hotels, and means the number of points required for a free stay at select hotels will change for Pointsters.

Prior to March 18, reservations will follow the current free night award chart, but existing travel plans for nights on or after March 18 will “receive a refund for the point difference if the hotel moved to a lower category.” according to World of Hyatt. Changes made to existing travel plans will honor the new point system.

A hotel’s award category is determined after “an audit of the number of points required to redeem a free night and Points + Cash at each property,” according to World of Hyatt. Essentially, a hotel’s category standing is based on its current market conditions.

The number of points redeemed at certain locations could be the main reason 259 hotels are changing categories. For example, the 130 moving up may have many travelers redeeming points at their locations, while the 129 shifting down may see less travelers redeeming points.

Hyatt Credit Card holders (who are offered a free night certificate for Category 1-4 hotels every year upon renewal of the card), will see a loss of six properties previously eligible for a free night. Though travelers may not take a huge loss, they will definitely notice the effects of the new categories.
