10 Ways To Book A Hyatt Hotel With A Discount
Share

Blog

Hyatt hotels range from ultra-luxury right through to budget, depending on which brand you pick within the Hyatt group. Most Hyatt hotel brands have high occupancy rates, but in the low season, rates become cheaper and you can book rooms on special deals with a discount.

Hyatt is one of the world’s best hotel brands with a global portfolio of more than 500 hotels and resorts across 12 brands: Park Hyatt, Andaz, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Hotels, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt Place, Hyatt House, Hyatt Zilara & Ziva, Hyatt Residence Club, Hyatt Centric, and Unbound Collection by Hyatt. Park Hyatt and Andaz are considered the group’s most luxurious brands. Park Hyatt hotels showcase a minimalist interior design that I love. Andaz hotels think of themselves as the rockstars of the Hyatt Group and are boutique-style hotels generally appealing to a younger audience of travelers. These Andaz hotels are often created within buildings with rich histories and locally inspired architecture which means that they absorb and share the neighborhood vibe with guests via the look, feel, and often music in the lobby lounge.

Hyatt also offers All-inclusive resorts including Hyatt Zilara and Hyatt Ziva hotels. More recently, Hyatt has partnered with brands that include Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) and Alila, Destination, Joie de Vivre, Thompson, tommie, and more. All these brands are in the process of joining the World of Hyatt loyalty scheme so that you can earn and spend your Hyatt rewards points at an ever-increasing portfolio of hotels around the world.

Particular highlights of the Alila hotel portfolio include Ventana Big Sur, located in Northern California, Alila Jabal Akhdar in Oman, and Alila Villas Uluwatu, Bali which we reviewed recently.

Hyatt hotels are well marketed so they tend to sell out in the high season, particularly in America and in vacation spots like Florida, Hawaii, and the Caribbean, as well as cities like New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Milan, Hong Kong, and Singapore. Outside of the high season, it is possible to get discounts and these can be found on the Hyatt website.

But don’t book there and then. Once you have spotted the discount you want, book via an official Hyatt Prive partner agent like our luxury travel concierge and we will also add our free benefits to the discounted rate as well as your usual World Of Hyatt points and status benefits:

  • Daily full breakfast for 2 per room
  • Welcome amenity
  • 100 USD property credit per stay
  • Early check-in / late check-out (subject to availability)
  • Room upgrade priority

We outline how to book a Hyatt hotel with a discount in more detail below:

1. Get Free Benefits With A Luxury Travel Agent

As outlined above, you can take advantage of free benefits in addition to discounts online and in addition to earning your world of Hyatt points and benefiting from your World of Hyatt Status. Even if you don’t have staus in the World of Hyatt loyalty scheme, even if you have never heard of it, you will get our benefits from your very first stay at Hyatt hotels and resorts from your very first stay by booking with an official “Hyatt Prive” luxury travel agency. It really is that easy and the rates you pay will usually be the same as those on the Hyatt website.

Most luxury hotels have hidden travel agent loyalty programs that give you free benefits if you book with the right “Virtuoso” or hotel partner agent. I have outlined the best luxury hotel loyalty programs which give you upgrades and free breakfast in case you are looking at any other luxury hotel chains for your next stay and want a discount or loyalty style VIP benefits.

Our official Hyatt Prive partner agent free benefits which will also earn you World Of Hyatt points and status benefits are:

  • Daily full breakfast for 2 per room
  • Welcome amenity
  • 100 USD property credit per stay
  • Early check-in / late check-out (subject to availability)
  • Room upgrade priority

2. Join The World Of Hyatt Loyalty Scheme

Some people say “there is no such thing as a free lunch” but there is if you were planning to stay at a Hyatt hotel and are simply looking to get a better deal and discount on your next Hyatt stay. Whether you are booking via the Hyatt website direct or with our own luxury travel agency, you can collect these points for every stay so it really is worth signing up. There are also member-only benefits and if you reach the heights of “Globalist” status in the World of Hyatt program, you will get free room upgrades to suites at many Hyatt hotels and will also be able to access the club lounge of Grand Hyatts and Hyatt regency hotels for free which is a massive perk and makes it worthwhile staying loyal to Hyatt.

3. Take Advantage Of Early Bird Discounts

The Hyatt hotels in Hawaii run at a particularly high occupancy rate as there is never a bad time to go to Hawaii. I regularly recommend clients who book their stay with our luxury travel concierge to book as soon as the rates come out. It is simply not worth holding out for a last-minute discount as these magical discounts don’t usually come up in popular destinations.

At many Hawaiian hotels, as you get closer and closer to the dates that you are planning to stay, the cheapest rooms start to sell out. So when you see a 3 nights for the price of 2 or 4 for 3 deal, grab the discount before it goes. Book it! You should lock rates in, particularly if the rates are refundable.

At the last minute, you are unlikely to be able to book the cheapest room, the room you wanted may have sold out, so you can be left paying a premium for a view you aren’t bothered about. You may be left with the choice of only booking a mid-range room that is more expensive than you intended, like the partial ocean view instead of the cheapest room in the house which is usually the discounted mountain view room.

4. Book A Cheap Stay With Our Travel Auction

Right now we have more than 10 Hyatt hotel stays in our luxury travel auction which offers hotel-specific Hyatt stays for a massive discount. These are one-off items.

Although we tend to offer some really great hotel stays around the world, including Hyatt stays, the volume of Hyatt-specific stays in our auction does vary at any one time. Right now we have stays in Maui Hawaii, Phuket In Thailand, Hua Hin And THE BARAI in Thailand, Kyoto and Tokyo, Japan, Taipei In Taiwan, Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, Kathmandu, Nepal, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing In China, Delhi In India and more. Our auction also offers luxury stays beyond the Hyatt brand so it is worth a look around.

5. Book Discounted Advance Purchase Rates

If you are booking in advance and are sure of your dates, you can take advantage of advance purchase discounted rates. This is one of the few ways to get you a cheaper room. Advance purchase rates offer anywhere from 10-50% discount off the usual hotel rates. You MUST be sure of your dates though because once you have booked in, there are no refunds on most advance purchase rates. If you don’t stay, there won’t be a refund!

6. Change Your Vacation Season

If you re-arrange your dates and you can specifically target certain Hyatt hotels when they are cheapest and are offering the best discounts. Arrange your plans around specific dates that you know your favorite Hyatt hotel is cheaper. New York is massively discounted mid-winter, so you can pick up a much cheaper rate then. Las Vegas is cheap when there isn’t a convention.

Planning to go to the Caribbean and Whistler in the Winter and Florence and Milan, Florence, and Venice in the Summer? No! Go to Whistler and the Caribbean in the Summer and Milan, Florence, and Venice in the Winter! Get the same hotel and facilities for a discounted price. Think beyond the resort to the hotel. You can still swim in the pool, drink in the bar, eat in the restaurant, and enjoy the ambiance whenever you go. You geta massive discount on hotel prices if you ski in Whistler or at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek near Aspen in the Rocky Mountains in the shoulder seasons. In mid-December and April, the rates are much cheaper!

Although many Hyatt hotels may not discount rooms when you want to go, during the odd moments when you and everyone else people don’t want to stay, individual hotels can discount down to quite the bargain! Change your plans, visit at an unusual time, and take advantage of that discount.

7. Pick A Brand New Hyatt Hotel

There are brilliant new Hyatt Hotels opening all the time. The new Hyatt Hotel Openings are listed here. Keep an eye out for one opening in a destination that you want to visit.

8. Stay Shorter

It sounds obvious when you say out loud, but I would prefer 3 nights at a good Hyatt rather than a week at a bad Holiday Inn. Do one night in Paris or Sydney or any city and take advantage of our Hyatt Prive agency early check-in / late check-out rather than spending 2 nights somewhere less exciting.

9. Promo Codes

There ARE special corporate promo discount codes, so if you are an employee of a company like Goldman Sachs, Bank Of America, IBM, or the government, you might be able to take advantage of these discounts, but these codes are not widely available to the general public. In addition, the discount may not be as good as the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge. We suggest asking for a free quote so you can compare prices and benefits and get the full picture before booking.
