Hyatt Stay Certificates and Weekend Certificates are potentially a huge rate savings at some hotels. These fixed-cost certificates cover room and tax. No elite qualification or points credit are earned on certificate stays.
A property like my local Hyatt Carmel Highlands is available at the $249 per night Elite level certificate. These are capacity controlled certificates so you will need to check for room availability using the certificate. I can tell you though that Carmel Highlands Inn is rarely below $249 after tax and any night when you can redeem a $249 Elite certificate is probably going to save $100 or more per night.
Hyatt Stay Certificates are valid for most hotels worldwide. There are excluded properties, mostly Park Hyatt and Hyatt Vacation Club properties.
Hyatt Weekend Stay Certificates are valid only for participating continental U.S. resorts for two or three nights on Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday nights. These certificates come in two levels and include breakfast for two.
The default price shown in the chart is for a two night stay. Three nights increases the cost by 50%.
- Three night Select Weekend certificate is $447.
- Three night Prestige Weekend certificate is $627.
You can combine Weekend and Stay certificates and even Gift Cards for Hyatt stays. Weekend certificates are only available as two or three night certificates. Hyatt Stay certificates are available as one, two, three or five night certificates. In general, you have the most flexibility purchasing one night Hyatt Stay certificates and combining them as needed.
Update Dec 14: A helpful comment from Deals We Like added the Certificate Codes.
You can use the following gift certificate codes when searching for availability:
– Classic: HSCLN1
– Choice: HSCHN1
– Premier: HSPRN1
– Elite: HSELN1
– Inspire: HSINN1
– Select Two Night Weekend: HWSEN2
– Prestige Two Night Weekend: HWPSN2
– Select Three Night Weekend: HWSEN3
– Prestige Three Night Weekend: HWPSN3
These are for 1 nights. For 2 or 3 nights, change the “1″ at the end of the code to “2″ or “3″ to correspond with your selection.
Participating Hyatt Locations for Hyatt Stay and Weekend Certificates.
In January 2011 I wrote about Hyatt Stay Certificates and simply provided a link to the participating properties. There are periodic adjustments to the level of Hyatt Stay and Hyatt Weekend certificates hotels will accept, just like there are periodic adjustments to the hotel category for reward nights. This post contains the complete table of hotels globally for these Stay Certificates as a record of what is available now and a resource for documenting future changes to Hyatt Certificates.
Use the link below to go to Hyatt’s site for easier viewing of the tables.
Note that the tables below includes a Stay Certificate level called “Exclusive”. A FlyerTalk thread started today on this new Hyatt Stay Certificate level prompted this post. Gold Passport Concierge responded to the FlyerTalk thread:
Exclusive Stay Certificates are only available through certain programs and at this time are not publicly available.
No indication as to what kind of programs offer these certificates. The reason this new level is interesting is that it includes Park Hyatt and Hyatt Vacation Club properties previously unavailable with Stay Certificates and currently not available at any other level of certificate.
- Park Hyatt Milan
- Park Hyatt Zurich
- Park Hyatt Paris Vendome
- HVC – Northstar Lodge
- HVC – The Residences at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek
- HVC – Hyatt Siesta Key Beach
- HVC – High Sierra Lodge – Tahoe
- Hyatt 48 Lex
- Park Hyatt Tokyo
- Park Hyatt Seoul
Hopefully the FlyerTalk thread will shed more insight into these elusive ‘certain programs’.
