Hyatt Offers 25% discount for prepaid summer stays


Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort at Gainey Ranch
Scottsdale, Arizona

Hyatt Gold Passport members can receive a 25% discount on the prevailing rate for hotel stays this summer in North America at participating Hyatt Regency and Grand Hyatt Hotels. Reservation must be prepaid, made by June 26, 2008 for stays between June 26 and Aug 3, 2008.

Park Hyatt, Hyatt Place, Summerfield Suites, and Andaz hotels are not eligible for this offer.
Use Special Offer Code LTO104 or call 1-800-233-1234 for reservations.

This deal can be a significant savings depending on the specific hotel, however, check for other discount rates available during your stay dates.

Sample savings:

Sat July 19- Sun July 20
San Francisco Grand Hyatt $249 regular prevailing rate
LTO104 rate = $186.75 which is 25% off prevailing rate.

While this is a good rate discount, I found the same rate of $186.75 for this night with a AAA Hot Deals rate. The AAA Hotel Deals offer is a much better deal. Rather than full prepayment which is nonrefundable for the LTO104 offer, the AAA rate may be cancelled up to 3pm 48 hours before day of stay with no penalty. The AAA deal also includes a 25% discount on parking (which is regularly $50+ per day) and complimentary breakfast.

Mon July 21-Thur July 24, 3-night stay
Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort at Gainey Ranch
$193 per night; $579 prevailing rate for 3-night stay.

LTO104 rate = not available

SPECIAL OFFER LIMITED AVAILABILITY

I found the special offer rate was not available for dates I tried within the promotional period for Highlands Inn, Carmel, CA; Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort; Hyatt Regency Scottsdale at Gainey Ranch.

The 25% offer is a significant savings if you can find a participating hotel and there are no better discount offers for the stay dates.
