Hyatt announced its annual changes to the number of World of Hyatt points needed for award redemptions. This year, 183 properties are shifting categories with 137 of them increasing. While the total number of properties changing categories isn’t as high as the past two years, there are more properties whose redemption costs will go up.

World of Hyatt members have until March 26th to book hotels at their current redemption costs. It doesn’t matter if your stay dates are in the future, reservations just need to be booked by this date. If you go to change dates in the future, you’ll be charged the new rates.

Hyatt Award Chart

Hyatt offers eight hotel categories (not including all-inclusive resorts). Each of these have three tiers, Off-Peak, Standard, and Peak. Points range from 3,500 to 45,000 per night.

With these changes, 75% of the listed hotels are increasing in cost. Many of the hotels changing are Hyatt Place and Hyatt House locations. It’s interesting to see that seven of the nine Hyatt Ziva and Zilara (all-inclusive) resorts are going up in category. The Everline Resort and Spa, Vail Residences at Cascade Village, Hyatt Centric Park City, and Alila Villas Uluwatu are all moving to become Category 8 hotels.

Anthony’s Take: These changes come every year and bloggers bemoan the inevitable increases. Hyatt provides an overall quality product and my experience is largely pleasant. As long as they don’t price themselves out, I will continue to be loyal.
