What more is there to do the math? It's an extremely generous offer, especially since it's "abused" so often.
Abuse? As a game developer, I believe the system works as intended. If it was not profitable, it would be discontinued.

Do Hyatt Residence club stays booked at Hyatt.com count towards the challenge?

I guess I should have waited on the challenge. We completed our 12th stay on 5/31 and Diamond was extended to 2/2015. Looks like if we had started it just a bit later, we could have had Diamond status an extra year into 2016.

Keep in mind Kyoto doesn't allow Suite Upgrades, but Diamond status was well worth it for the breakfast in Kyoto and at the PHT. Lounge access at the GHT was also well worth being a Diamond member for breakfast and cocktails/food in the evening.

Just to report back, Hyatt on Twitter did confirm that this was OK. Will report back when the stays post if there are any issues.

reporting back,

I stayed a night at the Hyatt Regency Schaumburg and got 4,000 points. This includes the 1,000 Diamond amenity and the 2,500 points for their lounge being closed on weekends.

this particular property doesn't help me, but thanks for letting us know.

I'm hopelessly Old School, I suppose. I think of a status match as a test drive of a car you are thinking about buying, not a free rental.

It's okay: I know I'm a damn fool.

I'm surprised that was the only negative response you've received, especially since you started a new thread for something that has been asked and answered countless times in the status match thread.

As someone that's been a member for 11 years, you should already know or should be able to figure out in 30 minutes exactly what the benefits are going to be. And only you know how much value you place on those benefits and what your other costs are (outside of the $129/night).

I say it's a no brainer to do it, given the incredible benefits offered to Diamonds at Hyatt hotels in Japan (especially the Park Hyatt)
Concur. We used a combo of points + Chase nights to stay last month at PH Tokyo - they take good care of Diamonds even on free nights and the room service breakfast alone is a huge benefit. Our only regret was not staying at PH Kyoto rather than the awful Westin.

I will not have enough stays to renew Diamond this year but it has been worth it at every property I've visited the last year and a half. The suite upgrade certs alone are worth it if you plan to travel with family as you generally get 2 rooms for the price of 1.

Even if it were "once in a lifetime" I never worry about that. Rules change, mergers happen, and the computer has a way of forgetting when systems are upgraded Plus you never know how your life will change or perhaps the Diamond challenge gets eliminated tomorrow (one thing for certain is that the rules always change). So never regret doing a status match/challenge.

If we judged everyone by the standard of letmegooglethatforyou.com then we would all be guilty at some point.

I'm not a practicing Buddhist but I try to remind myself to be kind. As the meme goes, be kind because everyone is fighting a tough battle. I've spent my energy trying to make sure all the hotels are ready to keep our ice packs frozen for the meds I need to transport to bring for my son. If you grudge me that bit of laziness then I will hope you are kinder in person than here; thanks to the others who tolerated my redundant question which have been asked and is now buried in a less than awesome search feature.

I just finished searching and reviewing the last 30 pages of this forum and can't find a definitive answer to this question, although there was an airline miles type question and partial answer. I am entertaining a Diamond Challenge and wondered if it is compatible with doing the current Hyatt triple airline miles promotion? In essence, can I register for that and get triple miles and still get the Hyatt 6K Gold passport miles? I also note that I am targeted for a stay 3, get 5K pts offer and would that still trigger if I am taking miles? I realize that's a bit to consider, but i would appreciate any insight anyone might have. Thanks!

The challenge can be used in combination with all other offers. For the airline promo and the 6k bonus it might be best to credit points first and then contact GP to transfer to miles.
