[HYATT NEWBIE LOUNGE - 2016] Ask Your Questions Here (flame free)

Welcome to FlyerTalk.

The Newbie Lounge is a place where you can get answers to your questions about Hyatt Hotels and the Gold Passport program. No question is too stupid, nothing is taken for granted, and anything about Hyatt you were afraid to ask elsewhere, or weren't sure where to ask, you can ask here.

We realize that FlyerTalk is a huge place. Until you learn your way around, feel free to post here without fear of retribution or reprimands for not using search. Our volunteer Ambassadors will be monitoring the lounge to assist you in finding your answers.


We're all glad you are here.

Any hints to get the Grand Hyatt DFW using Hotwire secret hotels?

Looking for a one night stay later this year at the Grand DFW. I'd like to use the Hotwire Secret Hotel " game" to reduce the rate.

Sometimes if a hotel is unique enough to the area there are subtle signs in the Hotwire description that point to a specific hotel. Any such known hints that people use for pinpointing the Grand DFW as the Hotwire hotel?

Thanks

Proper credit for 25th stay....

I had a NYE stay which would be my 25th and hence my diamond qualification. However the website/app has it improperly tasked to this year.

How can I get it against the proper time, and get my due Diamond status? If after the earlier status matches fiasco, and if they pull some nonsense on my one stay, I probably would be highly peeved, to say the least. Can I DM the GP rep on Flyertalk, for example?

Does a points and cash booking count as a qualifying "stay" credit?

Do you get the 1000 points Diamond amenity for it?

Yes to all.

You always get diamond benefits, no matter the manner paid.

Thanks ExpatSomchai - I did so to HyattConcierge, and they are forwarding it to GP Team. This is better performance than say, the Samsung promo I'm also currently dealing with. I just hope to get the diamond thing properly.

Quick question-- I made a reservation for 4 rooms x 4 nights each, but they made me put the 4th room under a different name I was only allowed 3 under my name.

It's all under 1 reservation number; will I get all of the points for the booking or for only the 3 rooms?

Thanks.. seems like I should get points on all rooms. I'll create a passport# for my brother just in case and transfer to myself if it comes to it.

What's the estimated value of 1 Hyatt point right now?

Not sure if it is worth to accumulate hyatt points or airline mileage. Thanks.

It's really subjective.

Points Guy does a monthly valuation of various FF currencies. Here's his December Valuation. I think his number may need to be adjusted down based on the Diamond twitter match fiasco.

Opening up points plus cash nights

Has anyone ever had luck getting a property to open up a night for points plus cash if the other nights they need have availability? In other words, getting a third night open on a 3 night stay if the other two have rooms available?

Normally, stay credit (and night credit) are based on checkout date. If your stay was for the night of NYE (1 night only for the night of 12/31), it is proper that the stay be credited to the new year. It is possible that they'll be lenient and manually adjust it to be in the old year.

If your stay was multiple nights then, they will adjust it for sure.
