Question on suite upgrade with points on paid rate

Anyone know if the 9k pts/night premium suite upgrades on paid rates applicable on Hyatt Prive promotion rates? Ie if the property is offering a 3rd night free promo only through Hyatt Prive (which is tusually the standard rate), can I ask WOH to confirm to a premium suite if that award is available for 9k pts/night? Or must I only book through WOH (both the rate and premium suite upgrade)?

Just ask Hyatt.

Probably should work as long as its a "standard" rate.

I'm unaware how one learns which of these upgrades is available?

Is there some guidance on how to find them without booking and then asking for the upgrade?

In theory you can search the website, search for awards and if it shows Standard and Premium Suite awards available you should be able to upgrade as well.

I was told by Hyatt that you cannot do the 6/9k point upgrades to suites on Prive rates. Hoping that changes someday soon!

Ask the HyattConcierge twitter team, they can let you know before you book.

I suggest reviewing the Master Thread on this topic: Experiences - Point Upgrades to Premium Suites

Based on the experiences, the "rack" or "standard" rate needs to be paid in order to upgrade with 9k points. Corp codes don't work. Priv rates will not work either.
@peteropny, would suggest merging this thread to the master thread.

Aren't Prive rates the standard rates?

At the risk of sounding ridiculous, Prive rates are the same price as the Standard Rates, but they are not Standard Rates. Only the actual rate labelled Standard Rate is the Standard Rate.

Right. If they were the same as Standard Rates, what would be the point?

The 9K upgrade is so strange!

I inquired about The Cape in Los Cabos; twitter concierge told me the 9K upgrade suite is the 1 bedroom villa with ocean view, plus $919 per night before tax.

Standard flexible rate for that room on the dates I asked about (in Nov) is $859.

I sort of assumed the 9K would be added to the base room (at $509) or the deluxe base room ($559). Obviously I was wrong!

Same here for Park Hyatt St. Kitts. The rate for the Plunge Pool Suite ($780) was marginally more than the required Standard rate ($755) + 9K points. Im guessing that to get outsized value the hotel will have to offer up their most premium suites (Presidential, etc) that seemed more commonplace when this program was rolled out. Now its often just 1-2 levels above the standard suite.

It should be the entry level room price plus the 9k points per night. Or 6k per night if looking at a standard suite.

Suite upgrade on points (9k or 6k) require a minimum standard rate booking on for deluxe room at resorts. It does not work on standard rate booked in the most entry level room. Only for non resorts can you book the entry level room and upgrade on points.

Is this new? I've done this many times, most recently at the Park Hyatt Chicago,Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi (resort) and Park Hyatt Dubai (also a resort). Paid the flexible rate on a standard king bed and paid the 6,000/9,000 points for the suite upgrade.
