Hyatt Resorts has a sale at 21 U.S. and Caribbean properties for stays through March 31, 2011.  This 48-hour sale started at midnight yesterday and ends at 11:59pm Central time tonight.

  • Special Offer Code: R48HY
  • Full non-refundable prepayment required.
  • 25% discount based on Hyatt Daily Rate.
  • Valid for hotel stays through March 31, 2011
  • Book by 11:59pm central time Wednesday January 26.

Hotels and dates I checked were lower than AAA rates.  Price compare since AAA rates often include breakfast and that is a rate consideration if you are not Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond with complimentary breakfast benefit. And AAA rates have more flexible cancellation policy.

Hyatt Resorts sale rates are “Use It or Lose It” rates, so keep that in mind when booking a $1,000 hotel stay. Trip insurance can be useful.

Marriott Rewards PointSavers discount the cost of a hotel reward night by one category level.  Book three nights at a category 5 hotel and only pay the category 4 reward price – 20,000 points instead of 25,000 points per night. PointSavers are available at select hotels. Some hotels currently have PointSavers dates listed into December 2011.

The current list is limited with only 20 hotels in the U.S. and 5 international hotels. But this is a great opportunity for a winter vacation in Michigan or spring in Cologne, Germany if you are in the area.

Ritz-Carlton Hotels also participate in PointSavers, however, there has been a dramatic decline in participation since the September 2010 launch of Ritz Carlton Rewards. The current list has only Ritz Carlton Seoul Korea and only for two single night dates in January and February.

On a side note: I notice two new Ritz-Carlton Hotels added since launch of Ritz-Carlton Rewards in September 2010. 

  Both hotels enter the system at the top Tier 5 for 70,000 points a night.

I guess entry at the Tier 5 top of the reward chart is appropriate for Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong since it will occupy the 102nd to 118th floors and hold the distinction of the tallest hotel in the world when it opens in March 2011.

Marriott PointSavers Reward Chart

The Marriott Rewards system for PointSavers means the discount is lower as the reward category increases in Ritz-Carlton Rewards. Marriott Rewards category 3 and Ritz-Carlton Rewards category 1 hotels are the sweet spot in the PointSavers system for the maximum 33% points savings.

At the top three Marriott categories of 6, 7 and 8 and Ritz-Carlton Tiers 4 and 5, the PointSavers discount falls below 20% overall.
