Question about Diamond Status for Hyatt
Hi! I am a Hyatt Platinum member. If I complete the required number of stays to become diamond, does the status update immediately, or does it go into effect the next calendar year?
hi [USER=1593]@SusanR[/USER], you will get the status right away but I don’t think the DSUs will kick in until next year.
Luckily for SusanR you are wrong about the DSU and yes the status update will kick in immediately
From Lucky article on Hyatt Diamond benefits.
“Hyatt Diamond suite upgrades
As a Hyatt Diamond member you receive four confirmed suite upgrades each year, which are the most valuable suite upgrades in the industry. You receive these when you qualify for status, and then receive four more on March 1 of the following year, assuming you requalify for status.”
[USER=268]@No Name[/USER], thanks for catching that :).
Thanks [USER=79]@Gaurav[/USER] and [USER=268]@No Name[/USER] – I wasn’t so much concerned with the DSU (since the hotel I was most interested in visiting doesn’t allow them – the Park Hyatt Sydney), but I was thinking it would be worthwhile for the free breakfasts.
Next question – does the free breakfast apply to all in your party (I’ll be visiting with my parents).
If you make a points booking as an Diamond member you will get free breakfast for all rooms.

Agreed with [USER=268]@No Name[/USER] that guest of honor is a great option as Hyatt Diamond. If you don’t have enough points to redeem for them Hyatt will give breakfast benefits to four people registered to a room (DSUs would help here :)). Gary at VFTW did a nice comparison of breakfast benefits yesterday: [URL]http://viewfromthewing.boardingarea.com/2016/02/23/43710/[/URL]
