Hyatt Diamond amenity adds points option for international hotels

Hyatt Gold Passport has changed the Diamond elite member welcome amenity to include the choice of points when staying at hotels outside the US, Canada and Caribbean.

Diamond members can choose to earn 1,000 points instead of a food/wine selection commonly offered at most hotels.

As a Diamond member you may have recently experienced something new with our Diamond welcome amenity.

What’s new?

At Park Hyatt®, Grand Hyatt®, Hyatt® Hyatt Regency® and Andaz® locations outside the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean, Diamond members now have a choice of welcome amenity. Diamond members can choose either a food and beverage amenity (locally inspired amenity at Andaz hotels) or 1,000 Hyatt Gold Passport® bonus points.

 

What remains the same?

At Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt and Hyatt Regency locations in the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean, Diamond members can continue to select a food and beverage welcome amenity or 1,000 Hyatt Gold Passport® bonus points. And, at all Hyatt Place® and HYATT houseTM locations, Diamond members will continue to enjoy a choice of 500 bonus points or in-hotel selection (complimentary beverage at Hyatt Place or $5 credit in the Guest Market at HYATT house).

The food and beverage welcome amenity is often a pleasant benefit when arriving at a hotel.

Other times the arrival is so late that a bottle of wine is not desirable before sleep and not allowed as a carry-on item for an early flight. These are times when a welcome amenity of 500 or 1,000 points is a better choice.

More choices for Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond elite members with no loss in benefits is an improvement for Hyatt Gold Passport.
