World of Hyatt has quietly launched a new promotion that should get people interested in staying at Andaz properties this summer. World of Hyatt members can earn double elite qualifying nights for Andaz stays between July 1 and August 31, 2018.

The promotion dates are based on when you’re checking out. So a check-in on August 31 wouldn’t qualify, while a check-out on July 1 would qualify, even if you stayed for a week.

There’s no registration required to take part in this promotion, and all Andaz nights that typically count towards elite status would count twice during the promotion period (including free night awards, for example). Those double nights will also count towards any threshold bonuses you may receive, depending on your elite status.

These promotional elite qualifying nights will be deposited in eligible accounts in the first week of September.

I’m a fan of Andaz hotels, though the downside is that there are only 17 locations, even though the brand has been around for nearly a decade. Perhaps that’s reflective of Hyatt’s general issues with growing their portfolio outside of limited service hotels.

While Hyatt isn’t offering many global promotions nowadays (unlike Hilton Honors, for example), it is interesting to see their brand specific promotions. For example, this summer you can earn 2,500 bonus points for every five nights at Grand Hyatt and Hyatt Regency, and now there’s an Andaz specific promotion.

If you’re looking to book an Andaz during the promotion period, the Andaz Scottsdale is probably the cheapest option, given how hot it is in Arizona in summer. I see rates of under $150 per night. Also keep in mind that Andaz hotels are eligible for Hyatt Prive rates, which can get you extra benefits for those stays.

Reading between the lines, it sure seems to me like World of Hyatt isn’t meeting their elite member targets. Just last week The World of Hyatt Credit Card was introduced, which offers five elite qualifying nights annually just for having the card, and an additional two elite qualifying nights for every $5,000 spent on the card. This should really increase the number of elite members in the program.

  1. Wow! When I looked at this a promo code with higher rates popped up. Any cash rate is eligible?

  2. I really like Hyatt rewards program; good value and good benefits for status. But the main problem is the footprint. Many places I work or visit just don’t have a Hyatt, nevermind a convenient one.

  3. Back when the standard “Hyatt” locations were converted to a specific sub-brand, I saw a lot of locations move to Regency or Centric flags, when I thought they really felt more true to the Andaz flag. I wonder if there is a different cost structure for management / owners on these properties.

    As an aside, I see this as another insult from WoH to those of us who are loyal, but find ourselves at other brands right now. I’ll have 20+ nights with Unbound properties in July/August (Bellevue, Confidante, and the new Eliza Jane which is amazing), but no extra love for my loyalty, while others get extra points or double night credits.

  4. Hyatt would be better served to address the main problem with its loyalty program: Totally lame mid-tier benefits. 30 nights gets you virtually nothing. If you can’t do 60, why bother. I’ve dropped from 25+ stays per year to two or three.

  5. Ugh, going for Globalist status again this year (for some reason…) and have a 5 night stay in NYC coming up (hold Globalist status). Currently have first 4 nights booked at PH and last night booked at Andaz 5th Ave as the PH isn’t available on points for our last night.

    Trying to decide if it’s worth it to just switch to the Andaz as it has availability for all 5 nights. Have stayed there but not the PH. Have heard the Andaz has gone downhill recently and reaaaally want access to that pool at the PH.

    What would you do?!?!?!

  6. These bonus nights will help ease the pain from a horrible Andaz Papagayo stay I just completed.
