Hyatt's Current Elite Status Requirements

As a reminder, Hyatt reduced its requirements to earn and maintain elite status in 2021. Here are the number of base points or nights you need for 2021:

  • Discoverist — 12,500 Base Points or 5 Elite-Qualifying Nights
  • Explorist — 25,000 Base Points or 15 Elite-Qualifying Nights 
  • Globalist — 50,000 Base Points or 30 Elite-Qualifying Nights

With this shortcut offer from Hyatt, Globalists only need 20 elite-qualifying nights, rather than the 30 required for this year.

Additionally, The World of Hyatt Credit Card cardholders receive 5 tier-qualifying night credits towards status after account opening and each year after that, for as long as your account is open. These 5 nights may count towards the 20-night requirement when they post in early 2022, although we can't confirm it for sure.
