Grand Hyatt Deer Valley Opening December 2024

Grand Hyatt Deer Valley Opening December 2024

9

In late 2023, plans were announced for an exciting new Hyatt ski destination in the United States. There’s now a major update, as the hotel has started accepting reservations, and will open later this year.

Basics of the new Grand Hyatt Deer Valley

The Grand Hyatt Deer Valley is now accepting reservations for stays as of December 20, 2024. This project is a partnership between Hyatt and Extell Development Company, and is located in Deer Valley, Utah, not far from Salt Lake City. It will be located at the Deer Valley Resort, and specifically, this will be the first property to open as part of the Deer Valley Resort expansion that’s currently underway.

The Grand Hyatt Deer Valley will offer 387 accommodations, including 40 suites and 55 private residences. Entry level accommodations will be 340-360 square foot village view rooms, and entry level suites will be 600 square foot studio suites.

The property will have a heated year-round pool and whirlpool, fitness center, kids club, and game room. In terms of dining, there will be a signature restaurant, a lobby bar, an alpine bar, and a market coffee bar.

The expansion coming to Deer Valley Resort is more than doubling the resort’s skiable terrain, and will feature 16 new ski lifts and a new 10-passenger gondola. The network of chairlifts will offer access to over 235 ski runs across 10 mountain peaks.

This project has actually been under construction for a long time. Prior to Hyatt announcing its participation in this in late 2023, this property previously used the working name “Mayflower Resort.”

Grand Hyatt Deer Valley rates & points requirements

The Grand Hyatt Deer Valley will be a Category 6 World of Hyatt property. This means a free night redemption will cost you the following number of points:

  • 21,000-29,000 points per night for a standard room
  • 36,000-44,000 points per night for a standard suite
  • 42,000-58,000 points per night for a premium suite

As far as cash rates at the Grand Hyatt Deer Valley go, they’re all over the place. In peak ski season (around January and February) I see rates starting at around $900 per night, while at the end of the season (in April) I see rates starting at around $500 per night. If you are looking to book a cash stay here, I’d recommend doing so through the Hyatt Privé program, which offers extra perks like room upgrades, complimentary breakfast, and a hotel credit.

Based on the current points rates vs. cash rates, redeeming points will generally prove to be the better value. For what it’s worth, I value World of Hyatt points at 1.5 cents each.

This is an exciting addition to the Hyatt portfolio

The United States has some great ski areas, though there aren’t all that many great ski resorts bookable with points. Fortunately we’re seeing more and more options over time. As it stands, my three favorite ski resorts in the United States that are bookable with points are the following:

There are of course some other options, but those are my favorites. The Grand Hyatt Deer Valley will complement the nearby Hyatt Centric Park City, which is otherwise pretty popular with World of Hyatt members.

Bottom line

The Grand Hyatt Deer Valley is opening in late 2024, and it will be part of the Deer Valley Resort expansion. It’s fantastic to see another great Hyatt ski option in the United States where you can earn and redeem points. I look forward to checking out this property at some point!

What do you make of the Grand Hyatt Deer Valley?

    So I booked two rooms with points for MLK weekend. Upgraded one with a SWA.

    During those dates the Cancellation policy states "Full Stay Nonrefundable/2 Night Deposit At Booking/No Changes" and the Deposit Policy states "Credit Card Deposit Required".

    I asked if that was the daily rate at time of booking or cancellation. They responded it was at time of cancellation. Of note the daily rate at time of booking is about $1400 USD. That would be a painful cancellation penalty!

    If the room rendering ends up being the design, I'm not sure fully carpeted flooring in a ski resort makes sense.

    While this design has furniture that's a departure from the Ikea-looking blond wood furniture, it's really amazing how bland and generic hotel interior designs across all brands and chain portfolios is getting. There's virtually no difference anymore.

    My understanding is the resort is working to have such lift served by this winter, while as of now the lifts are not in so no guarantees.

    Be aware that the Mayflower part of Deer Valley is east of the old part of the resort. There will be very good views but you'll be about a 15 min drive to Park City's Main Street. This will be pretty similar distance as the Centric property but you'll pass all that to get to the Grand. I'm sure it'll be a fantastic experience but it's a little further out of the way.

    Ben - it looks like even the points bookings are nonrefundable. Is that right?

    1. Mark Guest

      The Park City Centric has had a no refund policy during ski season for years. Hope that doesn’t start spreading to other resorts.

    2. Trup Guest

      Interesting data point- I made an advance points booking here and was told it was non refundable. I asked what happens if I don't have enough points in my account the 7 days before when its due. The response in writing and saved is that the reservation will be cancelled if points are not in account and then the cancellation policy does not apply.

    3. Rodrigo Guest

      I made a reservation and it says I can cancel 30 days ahead of check in for free.
