New Off-Peak and Peak Redemption Rates Effective October 26, 2021 For World of Hyatt Award Chart

Off peak and peak awards are for stays as of March 1, 2022.

Effective as of Tuesday, October 26, 2021, members of the World of Hyatt frequent guest loyalty program will be able to redeem points for off peak awards and peak awards in addition to the standard rewards for stays from Tuesday, March 1, 2022 and onwards.

New Off-Peak and Peak Redemption Rates Effective October 26, 2021 For World of Hyatt Award Chart

All free night award redemptions booked before Tuesday, October 26, 2021 will follow the current award chart. For example, if you book an award night prior to Tuesday, October 26, 2021 for a stay which occurs on Tuesday, March 1, 2022 or after, the current award chart will apply. Any free night award redemptions booked on Tuesday, October 26, 2021 or after for stays which occur on Tuesday, March 1, 2022 or after will follow the new award chart.

The current point redemption values for each free night award category through Monday, October 25, 2021 are as follows:

Hotel Category Standard Room Points Per Night Regency/Grand Club Points Per Night Standard Suite
Points Per Night
Premium Suite Points Per Night
1 5,000 7,000 8,000 10,000
2 8,000 12,000 13,000 16,000
3 12,000 17,000 20,000 24,000
4 15,000 21,000 24,000 30,000
5 20,000 27,000 32,000 40,000
6 25,000 33,000 40,000 50,000
7 30,000 39,000 48,000 60,000
8 40,000

New off-peak and peak redemption rates will be added to the World of Hyatt award chart effective as of Tuesday, October 26, 2021 for greater than 1,000 hotel and resort properties worldwide; and the standard redemption rates in the current award chart remain.

If you have an upcoming redemption stay, the standard rate still applies. If you need to change your reservation after the new redemption rates become effective as of March of 2022, you will receive the available redemption rate when you rebook your reservation…

…and if you have already booked an existing award reservation which drops to off-peak in March of 2022, you will supposedly get an automatic one-time refund of the difference in the number of points which are redeemed for your award.

In the new award charts for the redemption of World of Hyatt points which are presented later in this article, the percentage column applies for both off-peak and peak redemption of World of Hyatt points when compared to the standard redemption of World of Hyatt points: for example, 12,000 points for an off-peak award night at a Category 4 hotel property is a 20 percent discount when compared to 15,000 points for a standard award night; while 15,000 points for a peak award night at a Category 3 hotel property is a 25 percent premium when compared to 12,000 points for a standard award night.

Put another way, the best value is for off-peak award nights at Category 1 hotel properties, with which you will save 30 percent on the number of points redeemed versus the standard award night; while at 12.50 percent on the number of points redeemed, the lowest premium for peak award nights applies to Category 8 hotel properties versus the standard award night.

Enjoy free nights in standard rooms at Hyatt hotel and resort properties — with no blackout dates — and participating Small Luxury Hotels of the World or at participating M life Rewards destinations.

The current award chart shows that you can only redeem points for Standard Room points per night at Category 8 hotel and resort properties. The new award charts introduce the point redemption amounts per night for Category 8 hotel and resort properties for Regency/Grand Club, Standard Suite, and Premium Suite awards.

Not much may have been said about the new redemption rates because they are not in effect yet; but one thing is for certain: aspirational hotel and resort properties will certainly be more expensive during peak periods; and those Hyatt Place hotel properties in East Squeedonk, Idaho or Moron, North Dakota will only cost you 3,500 World of Hyatt points per night in January…

…but exactly when peak periods and off-peak periods occur will depend on each individual hotel or resort property; and you will not know for certain unless you invest time and effort into doing the research yourself for your future stay.

Welcome to another entrant in the world of dynamic pricing, as illustrated by past articles written by me and posted here at The Gate — and expect other frequent travel loyalty programs to follow suit in their typical lemming style:

Final Boarding Call

Hyatt Place Richmond/Chester

The addition of off-peak and peak redemption rates was originally supposed to be effective as of Sunday, March 22, 2020 — but the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus pandemic forced Hyatt to postpone that initiative until Tuesday, October 26, 2021.

The good news is that at least no new categories have been added; and the points required for each category will remain the same — but the potential bad news is that management teams may have the final say as to when peak season occurs at certain hotel and resort properties and that off-peak awards could possibly be scarce. Only time will tell.

World of Hyatt performs an audit every year of the number of points required to redeem a free night and Points + Cash at each hotel or resort property. The award category of a hotel or resort property may be adjusted based on the current market conditions.

If you intend on redeeming points at a hotel or resort property at which an increase will occur, do so as soon as possible prior to Tuesday, October 26, 2021.

Also, keep in mind that the forfeiture of World of Hyatt points has been further suspended through Friday, December 31, 2021. As a result of those extensions, this means that any member without qualifying activity for 24 or more months as of Friday, December 31, 2021 will forfeit their World of Hyatt points in January 2022. As a reminder, the general policy is that points do not expire, but they will be forfeited if the account of a member is inactive for 24 months.
