In December, the World of Hyatt announced they would change to a three-tiered award chart. Here are all the details of the new World of Hyatt award chart that launches on March 22, 2020.

WOH gave us a couple of months to make future bookings. But the day is rapidly approaching. If you haven’t already reserved your Hyatt stays for this year and early next year, you’ll want to do so now. 

The new award chart for free nights at Hyatt hotels starts on March 22, 2020, at 8 am CST. In previous years, the change took place in the evening. But this year it starts early in the morning. So make your bookings for stays through the rest of the year and into next year by March 21, 2020. 

Here’s the complete list of all Hyatt hotels changing categories and what you should do to save money.

You’ll pay more to stay at 118 Hyatt hotels after March 22, 2020. Because that’s when the new World of Hyatt award chart changes.

The Points + Cash rate for these hotels are also changing. If the hotel increases a category, so does the points + cash rate.

After March 22, 2020, some hotels will no longer be eligible for a free night.

World of Hyatt Hotels Increasing in Points

You should book these hotels before the award chart changes. Especially if you plan to travel to Vietnam. For yet another year, the Park Hyatt Saigon is going up a category.

Even places closer to home like California are seeing many hotels increasing a category. A higher category means you’ll pay more points for your free night.

Pro-tip: Pay attention to the hotels that are moving from Category 4 to 5. Because this means you will no longer be able to use your annual free night from your World of Hyatt card at those hotels.

Remember you don’t have to stay before March 22, 2020.

To get the lower rates you only have to make your reservation by March 22, 2020.

So you could book your November 2020 trip to Costa Rica now and only pay 20,000 points vs 25,000 points.

Here’s a table of all the Hyatt and SLH hotels that will cost you more Hyatt points.

The table is arranged alphabetically by the hotel name so it’s easier to find the hotel you’re looking for.

Get Points Back

You get points back if you’ve already booked a stay at one of the hotels that are moving down a category.

World of Hyatt automatically refunds the point difference on stays after March 22, 2020. But play it safe and call just in case. 

What You Should Know

If you make any changes to any reservations made before March 22, 2020, and the hotel went up a category, you will pay more points. 

This means if you change your reservation on March 22, 2020, or later, you’ll pay the new higher point cost. 

Pro-tip: This includes any hotels you’ve booked using a free Category 1 to 4 award night from your Hyatt card.

Get 9X Hyatt Points

Get 9x Hyatt points per dollar spent at Hyatt hotels when you pay with your World of Hyatt card.

You earn 5x points per $1 spent for paid Hyatt stays. When you pay with your Hyatt card, you’ll get an extra 4x points.

There’s currently an up to 50,000 point signup bonus on this card. You can earn 25,000 points after spending $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months and another 25,000 points after spending a total $6,000 within your first 6 months of having the card. Learn how to apply here.

Conclusion

It’s time to book your Hyatt stays before the new World of Hyatt award chart changes happen at 8 am on March 22, 2020. 

You’ll pay more points to stay at 117 hotels when the new award chart goes into effect on March 22, 2020.

This means you’ll want to carefully review the award chart changes on the tables above and book those hotels now. 

Keep in mind that the Points + Cash rates will also increase.

But the most important detail…which hotels will you no longer be able to use your free night award from your World of Hyatt card. Be sure to lock those in new before the price goes up!

Which hotels are you going to book before the World of Hyatt award chart changes on March 18, 2019?

Chase Sapphire Preferred

The Chase Sapphire Preferred is the best card for beginning travel hackers. It is the first card you should get to start traveling for free because the welcome offer is 60,000 points (after spending $4,000 in the first three months).
 
My favorite perks about this card are earning 2X points on travel and dining, no foreign transaction fees, and transferring points to 13 airline and hotel partners like Hyatt, United, and Southwest.
