Hyatt Stay Certificate Increases for Florida

Looking at Hyatt Stay Certificate prices around the world reminds me of that Joni Mitchell line “Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.” Looking at the increase in price at Florida Hyatt brand hotels is another location where a couple of resort hotels increased by more than $200 per night.

This is another post with a table showing how Hyatt Stay Certificates have changed in price in 2013 with no member warning of hotel tier reassignment from the folks at Hyatt.

All in all though, the cost of Hyatt Stay Certificates for Florida hotels is unchanged in 2013 for 21 of the 38 hotels.

The biggest change is for the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort rising from Premier at $189 to Exclusive at $394. That is more than double the price for a Hyatt Stay Certificate and reduces the usefulness of this payment option at that resort.

My parents loved the Clearwater Beach area when they toured Florida a few years back.

Hyatt Key West also took a big bump in price. That $200 per night increase might have covered the daily bar tab.


Basics of Hyatt Stay Certificates

Hyatt Stay Certificates are prepaid certificates for purchase through the Hyatt website. These certificates are available in seven price points and can offer significant savings at some hotels. The table in this post shows the lowest certificate price eligible at each hotel for a free night.
