What’s your best of use of Hyatt Gold Passport points?

Posted on September 3, 2013 by in World of Hyatt

After my rather disappointing stay at the Park Hyatt in Paris in July I'm contemplating what I gonna do with my Gold Passport points. Naturally I expected good redemption options overseas and at the Category 6 level.

However the real estate mania in Silicon Valley and the many upcoming conferences have made many places in Santa Clara, CA excellent redemptions. The Hyatt Regency there (which I used to go to for mileage running) now charges $379 or 8,000 points for a night stay. That's almost 5 cent per Gold Passport point in value. At these prices it's a good idea to even buy Gold Passport points directly from Hyatt or buy Ultimate Rewards points (which transfer 1:1) for 2.4 and 2.5 cents respectively.
