Planning out your trips for this year and next year? If a Hyatt hotel is in your future, you’ll want to pay close attention to the World of Hyatt award chart changes.

The new award chart for free nights at Hyatt hotels starts on March 18, 2019, at 11:01 pm CST. 

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

World of Hyatt Award Chart Changes

You can earn double points at Hyatt hotels through December 31, 2017. |

You’ll pay more to stay at 130 Hyatt hotels after March 18, 2019. Because that’s when the 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 18, 2019, some hotels will no longer be eligible for a free night.

Hyatt Hotels Increasing in Points

You’ll pay more points to stay at 130 hotels like the Andaz Maui after March 18, 2019

You’ll want to book and lock in the point value for these hotels before the award chart changes. Especially if you’re planning a trip to Bali and the Maldives.

Even places closer to home like Hawaii, Arizona, and Florida are seeing a lot of hotels increasing in category. A higher category means you’ll pay more points for your free night.

Pro-tip: Pay particular 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.

You don’t have to stay before March 18, 2019. To take advantage of the lower rates you only have to make your reservation by March 18, 2019. So you could book your trip to the Maldives for November 4, 2020 trip now and only pay 25,000 points vs 30,000 points.

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

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

Get Points Back

If you’ve already booked a stay at one of the hotels that are moving down a category, you can get your points back.

Hyatt will automatically refund you the point difference on stays after March 18, 2019. But play it safe and call just in case. 

What You Should Know

You will have to pay more points if the hotel you’ve booked is increased in point cost and you make a date change. 

Meaning if you change your reservation on March 18, 2019, 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

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

You get 5x points per $1 spent for paid Hyatt stays and an additional 4x points when you pay with your Hyatt card.

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.


It’s time to start booking your Hyatt stays because the World of Hyatt award chart changes are out. 

You’ll pay more points to stay at 130 hotels when the new award chart goes into effect on March 18, 2019.

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.
