Hyatt has just rolled out a potentially useful promotion for stays at one of their “independent” brands.

Double Elite Nights With Unbound Collection

Between October 22 and December 31, 2019, World of Hyatt is offering double elite qualifying nights for stays at their Unbound Collection properties.

In order to participate in the promotion, members must register and stay during the promotion period, though previously booked stays still qualify for this promotion.

As we approach the end of the year I know a lot of members may be trying to figure out how many elite nights they need to achieve the next elite tier (it can be especially worthwhile to go for Globalist status), so this could be a good way to increase your elite night earnings rates.

As of now there are about 20 Unbound Collection properties, with about half of them being in the US. Unbound Collection is the platform for boutique/independent hotels to join World of Hyatt.

Combine This With Hyatt’s Global Promo

You can combine this promotion with Hyatt’s current global promotion offering up to triple points on stays, which is valid through December 15, 2019. With this promotion you earn triple points at Hyatt Place properties, and double points at all other properties, starting with your second stay.

How To Earn Hyatt Elite Nights

If you are short elite nights but don’t want to stay at an Unbound Collection property, then consider getting the World Of Hyatt Credit Card, as it can help you earn elite nights:

  • You receive five elite nights annually just for having the card
  • You receive two elite nights for every $5,000 you spend on the card

Those are only some of the perks offered by this incredible card, as the card also offers:

  • A Category 1-4 free night certificate on your account anniversary every year
  • A second Category 1-4 free night certificate when you spend $15,000 on the card in a cardmember year
  • Discoverist status for as long as you have the card

…and more! You can learn all about the World of Hyatt Card here, and see this post for the best credit cards for earning Hyatt points.

Bottom Line

I actually haven’t stayed at any Unbound Collection properties, though I’d like to. Their footprint is just too small as of now, and I haven’t found myself in a city where it has been a good option.

If you are short of Hyatt elite nights and are in a city with an Unbound Collection property, this could be worth considering.

Has anyone stayed at an Unbound Collection property? What was your experience like?

  1. Just finished 4 nights at parisi udvar Budapest. If I can get nights double counted, that’d be awesome!
    (But, getting ineligible to register)

  2. I wasn’t eligible. Could be that I had about 40-50 nights this year already with Unbound in Philly and Miami Beach, so I’m probably not a target for them.

  3. As UK WOH member I can’t register either and I have a stay later this month at the Confidante Miami Beach. This could have persuaded me to go for Glob again!

  4. Only a lowly, lowly Discoverist here and can’t register either.

    Hopefully they’ve gotten all the elevators working at the Bellevue in Philly – it was miserable when I was there and only one was operational. Definitely going to look into their upcoming Scotland Yard hotel when I hit London in July, though.

  5. I’m pretty sure that those who are targeted have never stayed at an unbound property. I’ve stayed at The Confidante and Bellevue and also am not targeted despite being Glob. With that being said, nothing to write home about for those properties besides being a cat 4 in a decent area so you can use the certs.

    As a complete aside, anyone have any info on the Centric in Philly? What cat its going to be?

  6. Just tried to register and got an “ineligible” notice as well. Called Hyatt and they said there was no need to register – it’s automatic. I am gently skeptical but will try.

  7. It accepted my registration from fire country California………I see the Martinez in Cannes is on this list and rates as low as 170e per night this offseason………..that is one hell of a deal……….but I am probably going to hit 80 nights due to remodeling my house on the Hyatt card……..life is great in Nirvana…..little smoke is not going to break our spirit!

  8. @Lisfranc Just assume it’ll be Cat 5, seeing as the highest Category in the entire state of Pennsylvania is 4. A new-build hotel off the main drag? They’re going to want to start making their money back.
