Platinum elite normally requires 5 hotel stays or 15 nights in a calendar year. While a guest can become Platinum elite in regular circumstances by staying at Hyatt brand hotels 5 times for one night stays, the advantage of this promotion is the instant upgrade to Platinum gives the ability to earn 15% bonus points, receive complimentary internet, and perhaps score a complimentary upgrade.
The 5 nights requirement allows a guest to maintain Platinum elite with just a single 5-night hotel stay. One vacation or business week at a Hyatt Hotel can keep you elite for the next two years.
Diamond elite is even a better deal because it is based on nights rather than stays. Hyatt’s recently ended Stays Count Double promotion (October 1, 2009 – Jan 31, 2010) required 13 hotel stays to reach the 25 qualification stays for Diamond. Even at the minimum this required 13 hotel nights with one-night stays .
This current elite fast-track allows a member to earn and maintain Diamond elite status in 15 nights within 180 days of promotion enrollment. A person signing up in the first week of March 2010 has 180 days, meaning you have until about the end of August 2010 to stay 15 nights. Regular qualification requires 50 nights in a calendar year so this offer is a reduced qualification fast-track to Diamond elite.
Even for the leisure traveler that is easily done in two vacation weeks and some weekend getaways. Qualify for Diamond in the next six months and your status will be valid through February 2012. The benefits of Diamond include a hotel welcome amenity (movie or drink credit, bonus points, wine…), Regency Club access, 30% bonus points, room upgrades, and complimentary breakfast.
Similar 2009 elite promotions from Hyatt Gold Passport upgraded many members instantly to Diamond who asked directly for Diamond elite. For this reason a phone call to Hyatt Gold Passport Customer Service 1-800-228-3360 may be the better way to sign up for this offer.
