Four nights short of Globalist - recommendations?

With my current travel plans it looks like Iíll be ending the year with 56 nights, four nights short of Globalist.

What would you recommend?

Are the additional benefits of Globalist va Explorist even worth it?

Iím a bit hesitant booking a 4 day stay in Europe just for the sake of status given prices of Hyatt properties over here, and donít want to travel oversees for this. Any thoughts?

Is there any grace period for making stays of early 2020 count?

Mattress run. Find the cheapest convenient Hyatt and run four nights.

No. You have to check out by Dec. 31 for the nights to count for 2019.

Remember that nights paid with points or free night certs count for status.

Find either a cheap Hyatt near you or some hotel(s) where you would like to spend a fun long weekend.

BTW, can we assume that you're not a Glob this year? If you are, requalification requires only 55 nights this year.

Globalist is definitely worth it.

The Hyatt Place hotels near Heathrow can be ridiculously cheap. Somewhat less so the HPs at FRA and AMS. Don't forget that you're getting triple points at HPs before 15 December, so that gives you an extra 10 points per $ --> a 25% rebate by my calculations.

You can also find reasonably priced Hyatts for a weekend getaway in Istanbul, Athens, Milan, etc.

I agree with the others - Globalist make a difference over Explorist. There are many properties that can be found for low point redemption. Did you say where your home base was and where you might be traveling?

Not possible for you to apply for the WOH credit card? Via a relative or close friend in the US?

I think we can't really help you with that. The properties and rates are easy to find out. The rest is up to you, depending on how many points you have and want to redeem, which place you like, how close to a property you live etc etc etc... If you expect to stay 50+ nights next year again, I'd definitely go for Glob!

Point taken. But maybe if people have a good points/value recommendation Iíd still appreciate it.

If you're willing to simply burn the points, look for the closest cat 1 or 2 location and book out 4 nights.

Book a stay for a friend/family member and be there to check them in and add their name to the room. Just one option.

Echo the suggestions about the HP by Heathrow. The HP Amsterdam Airport's also very reasonable. Hyatt Regency CDG is slightly more, although I'm not fond of the property.

Based on my travel over the next few weeks I'm 2 nights away from getting Globalist again. I live in a super expensive area for hotels so I'm just planning to drive out to the cheaper area for a weekend and get my 2 nights for like $160 and call it a day.

In the US that should be relatively easy, as Hyatt has a lot of different hotel classes there, and actually three times more locations.

In Europe, Hyatts are typically much higher end properties of major city Park Hyatts or too end SLHs, there is only a really tiny handful of Hyatt Places and other budget locations. And most of them for me require a dedicated flight to get there.

That said this thread has given me some good ideas already.

Dont forget about the double stay credits at the unbound collection hotels if you are eligible.for the promo. Looks like the Hotel Martinez in Cannes is a fantastic deal for a mattress run at 2 nights elite credit per 160 euro night, Hotel Sofia Barcelona also very reasonable at doble stay credits etc.
