I also fully expect that 50% or more of my stays will be HP/HH properties because they have more locations available. I read peoples complaints about HP but from my experience, they are on par or better than the comparable Courtyard or Garden Inn. I do like Garden Inns though but HP are fine if you can get past the breakfast.....

I'm raising the Hyatt flag for another year and into 2018, hoorah!
I'll be moving from HP to Westin's, etc., not Garden Inn. HP's were for chasing Diamond.

You mean 1 per registered guest, maximum of 2.

I re-qualified last month and got a new Hyatt Diamond card about two weeks ago. Oddly enough, it says it's valid through February 28, 2018.

So insist on your Diamond benefits (amenities, for example) until that date.

Its amazing isn't it. It is the sort of thing that makes it a lot easier to leave after this, doesn't bode for a better future.

I hope youíre as excited about World of Hyatt as I am.

Jeff, clearly, flyertalkers are more excited than you may have thought possible, but it may not be the excitement that you were expecting.
For my part, I am not too happy either, but I have a suggestion.

How about creating family accounts for couples? Even better, having that if the two members total 95 nights, they both get Globalist status?

I am of course offering this suggestion in self interest. But it could help more than myself.
My husband and I are both diamonds. We travel both individually and together. Doing both 60 nights is going to be tough. But combined, we can do 90, 95, 100 nights. If both would have to do 60, I think we'll have to reconsider our choices and Hyatt may very well lose one loyal customer and possibly both. We can do Hilton's 30 stays each, making Hilton mighty tempting. With a family option as suggested, we would definitely stay with Hyatt.

One time only, but you don't have to finish in the first year.

Given how the new Hyatt touts this as a huge benefit, it's understandable to assume it's annual.

Agreed. It is really somewhat misleading (IMO) to make this promo part of the WoH program.

And actually, my answer was somewhat incorrect. You can currently earn two such awards for 10 unique brands.

https://goldpassport.hyatt.com/conte...d/en/faqs.html

Can I receive more than one 5-Brand Free Night Award?

Yes, you may receive more than one 5-Brand Free Night Award after staying at five unique Hyatt brands based on the total number of unique Hyatt brands. As of March 1, 2017, when World of Hyatt launches, the maximum earning of these awards is two based on the current number of unique Hyatt brands.

Guys question...

For Diamonds (with less than 60 nights for 2016), do we need to stay 60 nights or 55 nights on 2017 to get Globalist status on March 2018?

Kinda confusing as the WOH terms stated that only Globalists who achieved 60 nights (minimum) can requal for same status by achieving 55 nights.

"...A Member who qualifies for Globalist status by satisfying the minimum Tier-Qualifying Night or Base Point accrual standards set forth above may re-qualify for Globalist status for the following year by either recording a minimum of fifty-five (55) Tier-Qualifying Nights or by earning one hundred thousand (100,000) Base Points during the current Calendar Year."

So does this mean for Diamonds with less than 60 nights for 2016 have to obtain 60 nights next year to requal the year after next and not 55 nights?

Thanks!

You have to stay 60 nights in 2017 to requalify. It doesn't matter how many nights you have in 2016.

Lifetime Diamond/Glob DSUs?

I can't remember if there has been a confirmed response for the Lifetime Glob DSU policy yet.

My understanding is that Lifetime Diamonds/Globs will not get the DSUs unless we hit 60 nights the first year (2017) and 55 nights per year thereafter.

Is this correct?
