Hyatt Leverage is a corporate discount program within World of Hyatt and is aimed at the small and medium-sized business owners, touting up to 15% off on bookings. But what is this program? Is there more to it? We'll look at how this interacts with your regular Hyatt account and whether the discounts really work.

What is Hyatt Leverage?

Hyatt Leverage is aimed at small and medium-sized business owners. Among other things, it touts up to 15% discounts via exclusive rates, the ability to control employee travel and spending, and tools to analyze spending / reports.

But what about your regular World of Hyatt account? I'm a Hyatt Globalist, and I enjoy the perks I get at check-in. Do I need to create a separate Hyatt account to use with Leverage? If so, my earnings (points, status progress) would be split up, and I'd be less likely to earn any status for next year.

I asked My Hyatt Concierge (a perk of Globalist status), and this was the response:

Concerning the Hyatt Leverage Program you will still only have one World of Hyatt account and all your stays will be credited to it. The main benefit is getting a discounted rate and you can use that rate for business or personal travel. You can see the details and join the program at

How to Sign Up for Hyatt Leverage

You can enroll at The process is quite simple. Provide your World of Hyatt number and some basic information about your business. Even though Hyatt Leverage is designed for business accounts, I was surprised that it didn't ask for registration documents, EIN, etc. The process was really short and quick.

Since the terms say that some businesses will get instant access, I assumed I wouldn't and would need to wait. However, my account activated immediately. I now have access to a dashboard to see how much money and how many nights my business has spent with Hyatt Leverage this year (0, since I just signed up).

After registration, you receive a special discount code. You need to put this in the “Corporate or Group Code” area when doing a search for hotels.

In my dashboard, I can access detailed reports on employees I add to the account, hotel bills, and other important information here. And the best part is that this is still attached to my same World of Hyatt number.

What About the Discounts?

Aside from anything else, the ability to get discounted rates is likely the most attractive element for everyone. It was for me. But do they work? Do you really get 15% off?


Test Booking 1 – February Weeknights in Miami

At the Hyatt Centric South Beach, my discounted rate is $2 cheaper than the cheapest rate available — which is the Advanced Purchase Rate. However, I'd save 15% off of the Standard Rate:

Again at the Confidante (Unbound property), I got a 15% cheaper rate than the Standard Rate — which was the cheapest other rate available.

Bottom Line

Hyatt Leverage is a business-focused discount program that allows you to track, analyze, and control stays & spending from your employees. It's attached to your same World of Hyatt number, so you'll still be able to accrue status and earn points just like you already do. The Hyatt Leverage program doesn't offer any additional perks, but you should still enjoy whatever perks your World of Hyatt status offers you.

For me, not having separate accounts (and messing up my perks/status accrual) was my chief concern. Once that was cleared up, I enrolled. From the test bookings, I clearly didn't get a 15% discount off of the cheapest-available rate everywhere. One time, my corporate code didn't offer the lowest rate. The other 5/6 times, it did. Luckily, I can choose whichever rate I like best.

If you have a business, do freelance work, or other similar small- or medium-sized business activities, Hyatt Leverage can be worth checking out.
