This past December, World of Hyatt launched an awesome new partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

This was a well thought out new partnership, given that Hyatt’s biggest weakness compared to their competitors is that they have a much smaller global footprint than Hilton, IHG, and Marriott, so anything they can do to give World of Hyatt members access to more properties is a good thing.

The catch is that while there are 500+ SLH properties around the world, initially just over 50 hotels partnered with Hyatt. The intent was that more properties would be added over time, though it’s understandable that it’s a gradual process, since hotels need to be fully onboard to participate (presumably they need to be briefed on how it works, adjust their technology so they can properly report stays to Hyatt, etc.).

56 more SLH properties join World of Hyatt

While 54 hotels were initially part of the partnership, as of today World of Hyatt has added a further 56 SLH hotels to their portfolio, and you can expect more to be added in the future.

World of Hyatt members earn points at SLH properties at the same rate they would at Hyatt properties, though only when they book through Hyatt channels:

Then when it comes to redeeming points, all SLH properties have year-round award pricing in one of eight categories:

  • Category 1: 5,000 points
  • Category 2: 8,000 points
  • Category 3: 12,000 points
  • Category 4: 15,000 points
  • Category 5: 20,000 points

Bottom line

I’m thrilled to see the number of SLH properties partnering with Hyatt expanding. They’re more than doubling their number of participating properties today, and we should see even more added in the future. I can’t wait to stay at one of these hotels.

I’m especially happy with the quality of these hotels — so many of them look awesome and are properties I wouldn’t have otherwise considered, while others are properties I’ve already been considering, like Viceroy Bali, Nimb Hotel Copenhagen, etc.

Are there any new SLH additions that particularly interest you?

  1. Wow! This has been a really good week for Hyatt. More big news on top of the West Coast expansion. The big winners from this listing has to be Italy & France in terms of additional Hyatt hotels. However for those who travel to Thailand they will have a few more options for hotel redemption’s with UR.

  2. These look great and fill a major weakspot (Europe) for Hyatt.

    As someone who’s travel is primarily for leisure, I’d much rather see Hyatt add ~50 of these kind of boutique hotels periodically than a low/mid end chain with 500 properties just to add scale.

  3. Do you sense the Hyatt channel rates will be higher than what we’ll see on other channels to offset the benefit of point earning?

    Gary @VFTW is making a big deal of the best rate guarantee not applying.

  4. any benefit being globalist at these properties and using points?

    any reason not to go with ultimate rewards booking if it’s a better value?

  5. I’m glad Hyatt is doing this to expand their footprint, but they would be wise to make the hotels they add not just be Small /Luxury/ Hotels. Don’t they know that millennials are frugal?! i’m not saying they have to add hostels, but…

  6. Perfect timing. I checked out yesterday from the Grand Hyatt in Rio (which is a great property if you don’t mind being outside the center) and today, without my even knowing, got an email that I became with that stay a Lifetime Globalist. I never even knew how many lifetime points I had so it was quite the surprise!

    Loving these additions even more now as I work to migrate from Marriott. Now, if Hyatt would grab Rosewood or Mandarin I will be set!

  7. @Stuart – i’m staying at the Grand Hyatt Rio next week. is there anything at all in the area? barra da tijuca seems quite remote.

  8. Haven’t seen one hotel below 25k. Glad Hyatt is expanding but don’t think they’ll be any points using going on here, just earning.

  9. The Majestic Malacca in Malaysia is interesting because its owner is mostly a Marriott franchisee, including its sister hotel, The Majestic in Kuala Lumpur.

  10. @Ian

    I don’t think millennials are “frugal,” I think the consensus is that it’s more about value and experience. That’s why many are eschewing cookie-cutter hotels for a nice AirBnB, for instance. I think this is a great move by Hyatt that certainly doesn’t alienate any age demographic.

  11. @Ian. It’s in Barra da Tijuca which is a bit more like Miami Beach/ Ft. Lauderdale in comparison to Copacabana/Ipanema. The upside is that it’s far safer and you will feel fine on the beach and even bike riding down the beach path for miles. The area is far less congested than the main areas of Rio as it’s further out. The trade-off is far less in the way of good traditional restaurants and top dining in the area and you need to allow 45 minutes to an hour to go to pretty much any of the traditional areas in Rio. But if you go for a more resort idea to the hotel you will enjoy both of their dining options. Think of this property more like a beach resort over an urban cultural mecca at Fasano or Emiliano. Those are also great hotels indeed and put you in the center of everything – but cost triple the Hyatt for a standard room and the beach is not nearly as safe.

    I live 4-6 months in S.P. so if you need any good hotel or restaurant suggestions anywhere in Brazil – or other tips – I am glad to pass them on. It is a remarkable country and one I hope you experience well beyond the stereotypes of crime and a current leader that is more a response to the corruption that occurred the past few years rather than the true heart of Brazilians.

    One last tip….talk to the front desk at check in at the Hyatt and see if the pool suite is available. It has a massive terrace overlooking the ocean with a private plunge pool and, given the room and view is astounding. I negotiated an upgrade from a room at $200 a night to around $400 a night at check in. Holidays are over here so you just might score. Normally it’s around $700 which is not bad as this is the price of a fairly standard room at Fasano for example.

  12. @JJ – i strongly disagree. as children of the “great recession”, millennials are not likely to be shelling out $300+ a night on hotel rooms. what millennials like about sites like airbnb is that it lets them travel and become part of a local community without having to pay an arm and a leg for concierge-driven ‘experiences’ at luxury hotels. having a room in an airbnb residence is not only cheaper, but also feels more authentic to most millennials.

    the other trend you are seeing in travel generally (not just airlines, but also hotels) is stripped down options which offer less amenities and space for a lower base cost. offerings like SLH definitely still has an appeal to wealthier millennials, and older generations, but most millennials are too frugal for this due to being crushed by student loan debt and health costs rising more quickly than their wages.

  13. @Stuart Thanks for the tips. I’m a lowly Explorist but maybe I can get at least an oceanfront room. If Barra da Tijuca has a safer feel than Zona Sul I’ll probably love it, even if it’s a sleepier area. I love Rio, my only problem with it was that I never felt safe there, even walking down the street in broad daylight. It’ll probably take a bit longer from Barra to visit my friends in Zona Norte and Niteroi but if it’s safer it’s worth it, especially since Uber is so cheap.

  14. We had a great stay at the Luang Say a couple years ago. We almost stayed at the Aman but decided to save the money, because the whole Aman style really doesn’t suit us. The wife and I agree that it was one of our favorite hotel experiences anywhere and in a totally under rated town.

  15. Actual Millennial here. I’m on the wealthy side, but I dig unique properties like the Muse in Saint Tropez, AND the community feel of a Condado Beach AirBNB while in San Juan. Authenticity matters and informs a lot of my travel choices. As I travel a lot for work, I just moved my hotel stays from Marriott to Hyatt. I likely could have been an SPG Ambassador back in the day, but I would never stay at a Four Points Sheraton in Glendale when I could grab a quirky VRBO for a week and stay next door to a new microbrewery.

    I have friends who aren’t as well off, but they will save for those weekends at the Fountainebleu or the Cosmopolitan. I actually have a buddy who moonlights as a bartender to feed his travel habit. He has to do it with a $800 student loan payment every month, but that’s not stopped him from joining me at Amandari.

  16. Not all millennials are the same…besides, Hyatt hardly would make much money on Hyatt Place type of places or hostels; they make money from people who pay, be it millennials or any other generation…and people who pay need quality, uniqueness, high standards…so, kudos to Hyatt for adding higher end variety…

  17. @Ian

    We’ll just have to agree to disagree then. Again, I argue it’s about value. Millennial (who shouldn’t be painted under the same brush) still like to “treat themselves” when it’s a good value proposition. The disconnect we have is that each person has their own metric for what a good value proposition.

    Nice boutique hotels with personality (for the right price) are still appealing.

  18. @Ian Oh nice and sorry, you know the area well! Yeah, you will have no issues walking on the beach during the day and it feels no less safe than, say, Ft. Lauderdale. The beach is actually useable and fun.

    You should have no issues with an ocean view as an explorist. With the school holidays over this past weekend the occupancy plummeted as it is a popular family resort during vacations. If you can talk your way to club level access they do a nice job there and a decent breakfast. Also, Shiso, the Japanese restaurant, is decent. They call it Michelin star which is a stretch but it’s good and not expensive at all.

    Uber was fast around the Hyatt as well. Always cars right there. If you can you must try a restaurant called Lasai. It will be a 45-minute uber ride but so worth it. My pick as the best restaurant in Brazil.

  19. Well you made my day with this post! I was worried at how slow they were bringing in this group. I can verify Eze is a magical location. I’m also going to use points in Florence but am still waiting for Avignon and Aix-en-Provence.

  20. As far as the “millennial” thing…I think it’s a term that might be stretched as to the context. I think to the points made above it really is, as said, more about value to experience. This may or may not be a product of millennials or, I think, more about the ability now to find more unique places at a great value compared to 20 years ago. The options now are endless and I would rather a basic place with character at $90 a night over a concrete brown age Marriott with hermetically sealed rooms at $150.00 a night.

    I am a Generation x’r and I would have LOVED the options back in the day that we have now. That doesn’t stop me though. I also own an Airstream and can often be found at HipCamps (an amazing company) around the U.S. staying in vineyards and farms for $20 a night. Or, at Faena in Miami or The Halkin in London. It all just depends. Point being that I think Hyatt may get this more than any other brand.

  21. Wondering if there is an opportunity to status match here, I. An SLH ‘Indulged’ ( really hate that term) member and curious to know if anyone has successfully matched to the equivalent Hyatt status. Send word please , much appreciated
