There are four membership levels in the World of Hyatt loyalty program (formerly Hyatt Goldpassport):

  • Member
  • Discoverist
  • Explorist
  • Globalist

When you join the World of Hyatt you receive member status. After staying 10 nights in a year or earning 25,000 base points, you become a Discoverist. With 30 nights or 50,000 base points, you reach the Explorist level. And after 60 nights or 100,000 base points, you earn Globalist status.

I got a free hotel upgrade to the Park Suite at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place. All I had to do was ask. | hotel hack | travel hacking |

Hi Kim,

The free Globalist offer was a limited time special promo with Hyatt. But you can get Hyatt Globalist status by using points. Award stays count towards status -

You can also get 500 to 1,000 bonus points per night when you stay at Hyatt hotels -

If you're short on points you can transfer Ultimate Rewards points, get the Hyatt credit card (40k points), or apply for one of the many Ultimate Rewards earning cards.
