The post is updated with new information on a regular basis.

There are many ways to get elite-like benefits. Automatic elite status is given to hotel credit cards. Booking through the Amex Fine Hotels + Resorts program or the Chase's Luxury Hotel & Resort Collection will give you elite benefits.

Select small luxury hotels of the world can be booked through the world of Hyatt.

World of Hyatt members can earn and redeem points at participating hotels through a partnership with Hyatt. Extra perks for World of Hyatt members include free breakfast for two, early check-in, late check-out, and a room upgrade.

There are over 350 properties that are part of the partnership on Hyatt's website. There are many in Europe, but also in Asia and North America.

We will be looking at all the benefits World of Hyatt members get. We will discuss how you need to book your stay in order to get these perks.

It is possible to earn World of Hyatt points and elite night credits on all stays booked through Hyatt. It takes at least 5 points per dollar to be considered a World of Hyatt elite bonus.

Hyatt points and Hyatt free night awards can be redeemed at participating hotels. There are some hotels that are not bookable with a Hyatt free night award.

All World of Hyatt members have the same perks regardless of their tier of membership.

You can sign up for our newsletter.

  • Daily complimentary continental breakfast for two.
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi.
  • Early check-in at noon (based on availability at check-in).
  • Late check-out at 2 p.m. (based on availability at check-in).
  • One category room upgrade (based on availability at check-in).

There are no other elite benefits that apply to the standard points bonuses for Discoverist, Explorist and Globalist. Globalists can't redeem suite upgrade certificates here.

The benefits when you book an SLH property through Hyatt are more generous than they are when you book withSLH. You can earn free breakfast and upgrade if you spend at least three nights a year with the program.

My future travel plans include small luxury hotels.

Booking SLH stays through Hyatt

Hyatt introduced a pricing system in the late 80's. Peak, off-peak and standard categories are used in the award charts. Depending on the date you want to book, award night costs can vary.

To get the partnership benefits discussed in this guide, you need to book your stay through Hyatt. It's possible that you won't get the lowest rate when you book through World of Hyatt. The Hyatt's best rate guarantee doesn't apply to SLH properties.

A stay at the Brick Hotel in Mexico City can be seen in action. Hyatt is offering a one-night stay for $598 with free cancellation until two days before arrival.


We could book the same room type with the same cancellation policies for the same amount of money.


The best way to decide if the premium is worth the extra benefits and Hyatt points is to compare rates.

You can earn rewards with all of the cards mentioned in this article. Hyatt points can be earned by using these cards, even after you've gotten your sign-up bonus.

The World of Hyatt elite status is worth something.
