Thanks. Sorry for the above deletion. Twitter had finally answered me but didn't get it deleted before your reply.

I appreciate the response.

My Hyatt reservations show that the rooms have a "24-hour" cancellation deadline. 24-hours from when? How do I know the exact time until when I can cancel without penalty? Both Marriott & Hilton mention a specific date and time by which a booking may be cancelled free of charge. What should I assume is the time for Hyatt bookings?

24 hours prior to check-in time, which should also be mentioned in your reservation confirmation.

Typically 3pm the day prior which is 24 hours prior to check in time.

Datapoint: Since it comes up every once in a while I’ll mention that I recently unsuccessfully tried (via my My Hyatt Concierge) to use a Cat 1-4 FNA (free night award) along with some additional points or $$$ at a Cat 6 property.

Marriott just introduced this feature so Im guessing it may be in the cards for the future.

Cat 4 + 5k points = Cat 5 seems fair
Cat 4 + 10k points = Cat 6 seems fair


Cat 7 + 10k points = Cat 8 seems fair as well

These would be the only viable scenarios.

Since the Category Certificates are not impacted by Peak or Off Peak pricing if this were introduced Id expect it to be as I wrote above.

Thats what Id expect, though I believe Hyatt values them differently as theyre Cat 1-4 and Cat 1-7. Theyd value them at 10k and 20k points each which would be 66% of their value in Standard dates or much less in peak season.

Just my two cents.

Question about gifting a certificate -

If a non-Globalist wants to gift a Category 1-4 certificate to another person do they call in, gift it and its in the other persons WOH account now or does the first person have to book a stay to gift it to them?

The T&CS are pretty clear ...

"The Award Reservation must be made by the Member who wishes to gift the award, but the reservation must be made in the name of the person who will actually use the award (i.e., the recipient of the gifted award)."

I had never viewed the T&C on this subject as its not applicable to me being a Globalist, was just asking for a friend who has an expiring Cat 1-4. Thanks though.

GoH is self explanatory and has its own separate subsection. Hyatt describes this as gifting an award which could also be interpreted as being able to gift that award to another member having it in their WOH account which it is not.

For GOH it doesnt say gifting a Guest of Honor Award. It says Booking or Making a Guest of Honor reservation or stay. Terminology is everything and gifting an award does have the implication of transference which is the purpose of the original question.

After this I'm done responding to you ... It's a waste of time explaining something to someone who doesn't bother to read.

Clause C.V.(i) is describes Guest of Honor. If you bother to read that clause, this sentence "Gifting of an award is subject to the limitations and restrictions set forth in the Gifting an Award section of these Terms." refers specifically to Clause B.II.13, titled Gifting an Award. There is no "interpretation" possible for this clause. B.II.13.A is the clause I quoted earlier.

A. The Award Reservation must be made by the Member who wishes to gift the award, but the reservation must be made in the name of the person who will actually use the award (i.e., the recipient of the gifted award).
