#3 in Best Hotel Rewards Programs

Overview

The World of Hyatt program is geared toward business and leisure travelers who visit major cities within the United States, Canada, Europe, Mexico and Asia. The Hyatt portfolio comprises more than 700 properties worldwide, with hotels concentrated in major U.S. destinations like Atlanta, Chicago, New York City and San Francisco. The network of brands includes Joie de Vivre, Thompson Hotels, Hyatt Regency, Andaz, Park Hyatt and Grand Hyatt, among others. As a World of Hyatt member, you will accumulate points to use for free nights, room upgrades, FIND experiences, airline miles, car rentals, dining, and Exhale spa and fitness services. If you have a World of Hyatt Credit Card from Chase Visa, you can earn additional points for everyday purchases (including dining, flights and car rentals) and charges made at Hyatt hotels.

  • Late checkout is not available at Hyatt Residence Club resorts and MGM Resorts destinations.
  • If an account is left inactive for more than two years, all points in the account will be forfeited. Memberships tied to inactive accounts will not be terminated unless program terms have been violated.
  • You will not receive points for rooms booked through third-party websites or with travel agent, Hyatt employee or airline employee discounts.
  • Points may not cover taxes or service charges.
