With news over the past week that Marriott Hotels have brought out the Starwood Hotel Group (which has made a lot of SPG members very unhappy) Hyatt are hoping to target some of their regular travelers with a status match. So if you have high status in any hotel program it’s worth applying for the status match.
It’s been quite a while since Hyatt have offered any sort of match to Diamond, but they’re making the process pretty easy to do.
Send a tweet to @hyattconcierge and let them know you’re interested in the status match. To speed up the process also give them your Hyatt Gold Passport number and a screen shot or statement from your current rewards program (that shows your name, number of stays/nights this year) etc
So what’s the benefit?
Granted, Hyatt doesn’t a huge portfolio of hotels around the world as some of the other chains, but some of their properties are well known for luxury and great locations: Sydney Park Hyatt (pictured below), Park Hyatt Milan and their properties in Paris just to name a few.
You would also get status through to March 2017 as well as the all important 4 Suite upgrade rewards. This alone has the potential to make an ordinary stay into a very special one.
Give it a go. I’m sure they’re inundated with requests at the moment and could stop the promo at any moment, however if they’re hoping to gain new business this is a smart way of doing it (if they do indeed gain some loyal members from SPG or Hilton).
If you’re not a member of Hyatt’s Program, join before you tweet!
