While most airline and hotel loyalty programs reward individuals, there are also some incentive programs designed for businesses (like American Airlines’ Business Extra program). The idea is that many travel decisions are made on a company level, and any incentive a company is given to be loyal to a particular travel brand can go a long way.

In this post I wanted to take a look at Hyatt Leverage, especially in light of the recent launch of the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card (review).

What are the benefits of Hyatt Leverage?

Hyatt Leverage is a free program by Hyatt that’s intended for small and mid-sized businesses. This is a global business travel program that offers special benefits at Hyatt hotels worldwide. The Hyatt Leverage program offers the following perks:

  • 5-15% off standard rates at participating Hyatt hotels globally, bookable directly through Hyatt’s website or call center
  • A dashboard that allows administrators to view traveler information, reservations and room expenses, as well as track total bookings and room spending
  • Email templates that allow administrators to easily share information with travelers
  • Stays booked through Hyatt Leverage are still eligible for points accrual and elite credits in the World of Hyatt program

As you can see, the biggest benefit here is 5-15% savings off the standard rate at Hyatt properties. Unlike some other small business rewards programs, there are no points or other incentives for booking through this program. Rather it’s all about saving money and the ease of managing travel arrangements.

How do you register for Hyatt Leverage?

Joining the Hyatt Leverage program is fast and free. The Hyatt Leverage program terms suggest that the program is intended for companies where employees collectively spend a minimum of 50 nights per year at Hyatts. However:

  • Just because you don’t reach that threshold doesn’t mean you’ll automatically be kicked out; rather your membership is “subject to immediate termination by Hyatt in Hyatt’s sole discretion”
  • If you have the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card, you don’t need to meet the 50 night threshold
  • If you’re a World of Hyatt Globalist member, odds are that you stay 50 nights per year with Hyatt anyway

Anyway, to register for Hyatt Leverage you need to be a World of Hyatt member, so assuming you’re a member, you’ll just have to log-in with your World of Hyatt credentials.

From there, the registration process is short. You just need to enter some very basic details about your company, including the name, address, phone number, etc. There’s no requirement to add a tax ID, share how many years you’ve been in business, etc.

As soon as you’ve registered, the confirmation page will give you your corporate discount code, which you can use for the 5-15% savings on Hyatt stays worldwide.

How do you use the Hyatt Leverage discount code?

Once you’re registered for Hyatt Leverage you’ll be given a corporate code, which you can immediately start using. To use it, go to hyatt.com and make a booking as you usually would. You’ll see a “Corporate or Group Code” field, and that’s where you’d enter the six digit code you’ve been provided.

Then when you do a search for a hotel, you’ll see that one of the rate options shows as being your company name. To be clear, the 5-15% discount would generally be in comparison to the standard rate, rather than in comparison to other discounted rates.

In some cases you’ll find that the Hyatt Leverage rate is in fact the lowest rate, including in comparison to members-only rates, AAA rates, etc.

In other cases you may find that a members-only rate, AAA rate, etc., is marginally cheaper.

As mentioned above, Hyatt Leverage rates are eligible to earn World of Hyatt points and elite credits. However, note that you can’t book Hyatt Privé rates with Hyatt Leverage, since that program is based on booking the standard rate.

Is Hyatt Leverage worth it?

The Hyatt Leverage program is unlikely to be a game-changer, as the primary benefit is modest savings on Hyatt hotel stays. Generally speaking, 5-15% savings compared to the standard rate won’t be the same as 5-15% savings compared to the best available rate.

In some cases the Hyatt Leverage rate will be the lowest rate at a hotel, while in other cases a members-only or AAA rate may be cheaper.

Regardless, there’s no downside to joining Hyatt Leverage, so I’d highly recommend doing so if eligible. The program is free, so why not have access to a rate code that could save you some money on Hyatt stays?

Bottom line

Hyatt Leverage is a free program intended for businesses. This isn’t a rewards program, but rather offers 5-15% discounts on Hyatt stays, and in theory is supposed to make managing hotel stays easier. If you have the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card, you can even be enrolled in the Hyatt Leverage program without any minimum stay requirement.

If you’ve used the Hyatt Leverage program, what has your experience been?

    Can someone here who has an Hyatt Leverage account hire me? ;) maybe @OMAAT?

    Anyone find that Hyatt hotels in London are playing games with points booking availability over the holidays?

    @Ben Would this present an advantage for folks who want to do the 3k club/6k suite/9k premium suite for non resort properties that require the standard rate and NOT the adv pur/member rate?

  4. Christian Guest

    So they’re basically rebating the travel agent commission. That’s good enough for some trips, I suppose, but for qualifying stays I prefer Prive.

    1. PeterSFO Guest

      Does the company have to sign up as a whole or can individuals that work for a company sign up on an individual basis?

  5. Mohammed Guest

    And these rates are always refundable and don’t require a deposit!
