Hyatt Place 50% off 3rd Night is the 7% Solution

Hyatt Place hotels have a 3-night stay special rate offer for hotel stays from November 19 through January 17, 2011 when booked from November 4 to January 15, 2011. This offer is valid for up to 9 consecutive nights.

Enter HOLID3 in the special offer code box on reservations to pull up rates for 3-night stays.

Conventional thinking would be 50% off the 3rd night should be an overall discount a bit over 16% on the room rate (half of 33.33% = 16.66%). My samples indicate a 7% discount on AAA rates.

A good deal – YES.

Great?

Unfortunately, the rates used for extended stay discounts are rarely based on the otherwise lowest rates available at a hotel.

Loyalty Traveler Analysis:

I sampled rates at three hotels around the U.S.

  • Hyatt Place Silicon Valley Fremont, California
  • Hyatt Place Downtown Atlanta, Georgia
  • Hyatt Place Princeton, Princeton, New Jersey

 

Hyatt Place Silicon Valley Fremont, California

3-night stay: Monday, December 13 – Thursday, December 16, 2010

HOLID3 Rate = $297.50 (after discount at check-out); $357 before discount at $119 per night.

AAA rate = $321 room rate at $107 per night.

Cancellation policies are the same for both rates at 4pm Day of Arrival.

Total Savings = $23.50 or 7.3% savings on AAA rate for this three night stay.

Loyalty Traveler rate offer conclusion:

This 50% off 3rd night special rate offer is a good deal if you need a three night stay between now and January 17, 2011 and the Hyatt Place rates are comparable to competitors. This rate is an overall discount, and an extra 7% savings on hotel rates comes with liberal cancellation policies.

This is even a better deal in combination with Hyatt Gold Passport Great 10K promotion offering 10,000 bonus points for every 5 hotel nights through December 15.

You can redeem two free nights with 10,000 points at the Hyatt Place Fremont or Hyatt Place Atlanta Downtown, both category 1 reward hotels for 5,000 points per night. Hyatt Place Princeton is actually a category 3 hotel for 12,000 points per night. I assume it is the hotel location since every Hyatt Place is nearly identical in design and layout of lobby, facilities and rooms.
