World of Hyatt goes semi-dynamic pricing

If you didn’t see it, a few days ago, I posted that Hyatt is rolling out an award calendar alongside the semi-dynamic pricing. One thing we can continue to be thankful for is the fact that Hyatt still has award charts. Marriott, IHG, and Hilton have all abandoned them as they adopted fully dynamic redemptions, and my feeling is that this is probably the final step Hyatt will make in the same direction before pulling the final

The New World of Hyatt Award Chart

The biggest takeaways here is to refer to the chart on the spread between Off-Peak and Peak – it’s not uniform. For instance, on a standard room the Off-Peak rate is 1500 less than Standard for a category 1, but 5000 points less than standard on category 8. For premium suites it goes all the way to 10k difference.

Here’s a look at the All-Inclusive Properties

I stayed at the Hyatt Ziva in Puerto Vallarta and loved it…it’s now accessible off-peak for 17k points per night. Who knows how many nights out of the year that is possible, but if you find it, it could be a screaming good deal. But always check the cash rate first.

Going to a Miraval is high on my list…maybe 2022 is the year and I’ll aim to redeem off-peak…if it exists.

Unfortunately, programs are moving towards dynamic pricing one by one, and thankfully Hyatt is the slowest to follow suit. I think, if you’re willing to go in low season, or my favorite “shoulder season,” this program change may end up saving you some points. But, if you’re tied to school holidays, etc – you’ll be burning those points up 10% to 20% faster than you would have otherwise.
