Look at your history. I am in the exact same situation, but Hyatt did *NOT* retroactively charge me more.
Example:
Andaz Mayakoba for four nights. Was Cat 5 (20K/nt), now Cat 6 (25K/nt)

I tried on the app (ios) and it doesn't show any availability; cash, points or otherwise. If points availability opens up, I'm definitely going to look at preemptively booking a vacation for next...

Wow, that does look like a spectacular deal. I really actually wonder if it may be a mistake? Room rates are $400/nt+ and the hotel pictures look gorgeous.

Mayakoba is pretty often a better deal on cash than points. A typical price is only $300/nt, and sometimes sales bring it down to $200 (or less if you have Prestige 4th night free, or sometimes...

Generally speaking, yes. As long as that rate is still booked directly through Hyatt, it will definitely count (similar to corporate/AAA rates).
If it goes through the conference's central...

I think where this is coming from is that Hyatt considers multiple reservations at the same hotel in a back-to-back form to be considered a single "stay". I think that's because on the back end they...
