When you reach 70/80/90/100 nights per year, you can choose between 10,000 Rewards Points or a suite upgrade voucher.

Reward points can be purchased directly through the official website, especially when the hotel launch points promotions, the maximum discount is 40%.  Each account can purchase up to 55,000 points  per year, and accept up to 55,000 points from others.

Members can also combine the points in their account with the points of another designated member, both of whom need to sign an application form and can be combined up to 1 time every 30 days.

World of Hyatt points redeem for a free room

World of Hyatt points can be redeemed for free room stays, and hotels are divided into 8 levels (CAT8), and the points used to redeem free rooms vary depending on the hotel level.

In addition, World of Hyatt Points are special in that they can be used to upgrade room types and are open to all members:

  • Upgrade to Club room and your points are: 3000/6000/9000 points per night.
  • The upgrade can be completed as long as the corresponding room is available at the time of booking, of which the Regency Club upgrade can be completed on the official website, and the standard and designated superior suite upgrades need to be operated by calling customer service.
  • The room rate is calculated according to the Standard Rate on the day of the upgrade and any discounted rate will not be accepted.

In addition, if you don’t have enough points in your account, you can also choose to redeem the room night by cash + points. Points used in this way are also determined by the level of the hotel, which can be found on the Hyatt Regency website.

World of Hyatt points are converted into airline miles

Points in Hyatt member accounts can be redeemed for airline miles, and there are about 20 airlines around the world that are Hyatt’s partners, including Air France, Aeromexico, Air China, All Nippon Airlines, American Airlines and more. The percentage of redemption can be found here.

In general, the use of Hyatt points is not as good as Accor Points. But Hyatt Regency is more famous for its dining quality, whether it is an executive lounge or a hotel restaurant, it is worth trying.
