It would be nice if Hyatt created something like Free Parking Awards as a Milestone Reward option.

I know Id rather have something like that than the Club Access Awards.

Seems like itd be too much of a hassle for Hyatt.

Id be perfectly happy with a straight 50% discount for Globs on parking on paid stays, as a permanent benefit.

It drives in more revenue for Hyatt in the long run Anyways because I know that many Globalists avoid properties with hefty parking charges. Theyd be much more likely to stay and spend with Complimentary or half off parking.

I know as a Glob myself prior to the pandemic the only time Id stay at a property charging $30+ for parking would be an award stay. Id have been happy to pay the cash rates but with the free parking on award stays only it pushes Globs to only book award stays at those properties.

A decent promo. Moved my Hilton stays to Hyatt. For 10 nights at USD41++ per night, I receive a 2665 points for stay including Globalist bonus, 10000 promo points, 10000 Milestone Rewards points(not choosing TSU) and Cat.1-4 Certificate. Refund points value for me is USD340 plus Free Night voucher.

What US property is $41 a Night???

Ive never seen one below $50 and Ive searched and searched.

Must be a property in Mexico or Brazil, definitely not US.

As many have said this promo is most definitely aimed for stays at the lowest priced (both cash rate and lowest Category) properties.

Doesn't the ++ after $41 indicate it's a $41 misleading room rate charge before taxes and a mandatory hotel charge (such as a resort/destination/whatever hotel-wanted fee) on top of the nightly room rate presented as the headline rate?

It does indicate those things, but again Ive still never seen a Hyatt hotel base rate in the US under $50. Plus taxes are usually 10-15% so thats lets say $6 and resort or whatever fees are waived for Globalists so they dont matter much.

Hyatt's MGM/mLife-affiliated properties have resort fees. I had assumed that resort fees aren't waived at mLife/MGM properties for being Globalist.

For Hyatt's own branded hotels, Hyatt has some cheap Hyatt named properties in India. Like sub-$50 ... some Hyatt Place with a rate as low as $31/night. At some points I had booked a bunch of nights at that cheap Hyatt Place in India, but never got there myself. Unfortunately I won't be making it there during Q2.

If you read my original post I clearly state it must be a Hyatt not in the US, rather a Mexico or Brazil property.

If you find a HH or HP in the US for sub $50 send it to me, because Ive been searching for months for one.

Did I wrote that it is in US??? Why you expect that everything goes around the US? It can be in Mexico,Brazil or even India. It is not for mattress run purposes either, because I already re-qualified as Globalist with 60 nights. So it is just a right timing and pricing.

I have to correct, the total price is currently slightly less than USD42 with taxes and fees, net price is below USD40. It will be different when the stay starts due to the currency fluctuation but hopefully not much. ++ means net price before any taxes and fees.

You should go out and meet some HP/HH sales managers who work at inexpensive hotels and have a chat.

Im talking about publicly available published rates.

Of course corporate rate plans and negotiated rates may be lower.

Im not sure if its guidance provided by Hyatt Corporate but I havent seen a rate lower than $50 at any US Hyatt published on Hyatt.com.

I did a BRG for a 7 night stay in Q3 that got the rate at a HH down to $48 in Texas. So yes, its definitely possible, but I have never seen a publicly available published rate under $50 at any US property.
