Hyatt is making broad changes to their loyalty program Hyatt Gold Passport which will itself be renamed to World of Hyatt.
TPG made a great list of changes earlier today.
To qualify for Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond status you will need 25 stays or 50 nights right now. To become a Globalist with World of Hyatt you will need 60 nights or you can spend $20,000 with Hyatt and earn status this way.
Hyatt is investing a lot in free stay certificates and suite upgrades. The details are still emerging and may change. I’m sure they heard that a lot as feedback from Starwood and Hilton elites.
Many of the best points generating benefits like the 2,500 ‘closed lounge benefit’ and the welcome amenity will go away sadly.
Hyatt plans to officially launch in March 2017 and if you qualify for Diamond this year you are most likely moved into a Globalist status next year.
I’ve had a lot of fantastic hotel experiences with Hyatt and they clearly stand out from the rest. However Hyatt Gold Passport was to expensive for the limited stays I had before and the new Globalist does not make it much easier.
However if you have specific locations you always travel to that have a good value/ awesome Hyatt really think about Hyatt status – it’s worth it!
