To incentivize World of Hyatt members to fill new hotels, Hyatt offers members 500 bonus points for staying at new hotels within the first few months after opening.

Hyatt New Hotel Bonus Points Eligible Hotels

Hyatt Alila Napa Valley - Hyatt newest hotel

Here's the current list of hotels where you can get a 500-point bonus for staying during eligible dates:

Terms and Conditions

  • Your check-out date must be between the hotel's qualifying dates.
  • Your account must be in good standing at the time of your stay.
  • You can either pay an eligible rate or redeem a free night award to claim the bonus points.
  • Any length of nights is counted as one stay and will only receive one reward.
  • Offer not valid with groups, conventions, other promotional offers, tour packages, or special rate programs.

Our Take

Based on recent AwardWallet user redemptions, World of Hyatt points are worth 2.25 cents each. At this rate, the 500-point bonus is only worth around $11. So, it's not worth going out of your way to book these hotels. But if you can stay at one of these hotels in the next couple of months, then it's a great way to sweeten your stay.

When you book, don't forget to use a The World of Hyatt Credit Card to receive 4X points and Discoverist elite status at Hyatt hotels — along with all the other benefits that come with the Hyatt card.

  • Gustavo Iasinski says:

    Good program. I just would like to see more options for staying located in South America

  • Personally, would not go out of my way for 500 points. At 1,000 points, maybe…

  • May I ask how you come up with 2.25 cents each? I know it’s an average but what properties are you looking at to get huge value? And we’re not talking inflated prices like the cash price of a hotel in New York on New Year’s Eve right?

  • 500 points adds up if you have multiple stays planned.

  • Free breakfast as an incentive option would be nice.

  • This looks fab, I hope I can take advantage of it – thanks for the tip

  • I guess they are just trying to get people to try the new hotels in their network. 500 points is not a lot that would make me change my hotel preference though.

  • Not the biggest incentive to stay but every little helps

  • Andrew Merson says:

    As you surmised it’s not worth 500 points to go out of your way to book but nice if you were staying anyways!

  • Good deal. Thanks.

  • 500 of something for nothing if you were going to stay anyway. Pretty good deal

  • Not a huge incentive, but hey, if you’re gonna be staying there anyway, might as well get the extra 500 points…..Hyatt is still the best major hotel points program around despite their smaller selection of hotels worldwide.

  • New properties is a good thing. Keep them coming and expand your footprint!

  • Andrew Jolley says:

    Looks like a good deal. Seems like most of the Hyatts i’ve stayed at recently have been great experiences.

  • Never a bad thing to get some free points

  • Gee, 500 whole points. If it was a little higher, might be somewhat enticing

  • Talk about timing…I stayed at Hyatt hotels in one of the cities on the list, and at Hiltons on two others just last month. (Charlotte, Phoenix, & Houston) Redeemed some other amazing promotions such that I don’t feel FOMO, but this would’ve been sprinkles on the icing had I known about it.

  • Nice extra bonus but I wouldn’t go out of my way to stay there for the bonus.

  • Great tip! I’m planning a trip to NYC and this is a very useful data.

  • I am planning a trip to NYC in December so I might be trying the Hyatt Place New York / Chelsea. Thanks for the tip! 🙂

  • Hotel Figueroa is a cool place. I’ve stayed there a few times. Nice boutique hotel in DTLA.

  • Valdeneia Juraci Pinto says:

    Thanks for the tips. I’ll travel travel to Nashville next month.

  • I hear Hyatt is very good to their members especially the elite. While there are limitations on this promo, I’ll still check them out.

    • Hyatt has one of the best rewards programs IMO, the points are worth more than other hotel brand points, and they do treat members well. The customer service I’ve received has been excellent. They always try to accommodate my requests and answer emails really quickly, often within a few hours. They don’t have as many properties as other brands, but are adding new ones all the time, they run a lot of bonus promos, and if you have an American Airlines Aadvantage account and link it to your WOH account, they give you Hyatt points for every AA flight. I’d highly recommend the World of Hyatt card if you become a member. The annual anniversary free night reward alone is worth more than the $95 annual fee, plus you get Discoverist elite status and your Hyatt points won’t expire.

  • Still a pain in the backside to do any real travel,,,, Is 500 points worth the aggravation

  • Hyatt is my go-to for booking award nights since they have a set chart.

  • Look forward to Samui again some day

  • I have stayed at Hyatt place LAX. prolly not the best experience but still acceptable.

  • I certainly would have stayed at some of these hotels if my travel plans had taken me to those locations. There are a few in the midwest, but none where I have been working. I’ll always choose a Hyatt if I can and I’m glad to see their footprint growing.

  • May I ask how you come up with 2.25 cents each? I know it’s an average but what properties are you looking at to get huge value? And we’re not talking inflated prices like the cash price of a hotel in New York on New Year’s Eve right?

    • Hi Darren, the average is based off of 18,630 bookings as of today. The numbers DO include inflated prices like New York on NYE. But with over 18K award data points, pricy dates shouldn’t be a big factor in the overall average. You can see a breakdown by Hyatt brand here:

      Mile value averages are weighted by the number of points redeemed. For example, an award that gets a value of X cents per point on 100,000 points redeemed has twice the impact (on the average) as redeeming 50,000 points.

  • I see this offer from Hyatt pretty often, never have been able to cash in on it though.

  • A quite poor promotion.
    Especially because the goal is to promote the new hotels that normally don’t have any customers.

  • Some of those eligible dates seem speculative. For example, Hyatt Place Vadodara shows eligibile dates as Jul 1 – Sep 30, yet the hotel is not open for business until mid-Nov.

  • I really enjoy staying at Hyatt Centric. It can be a bit barebones, but it’s always in the center of the cities’ action, and i love that!

  • I guess it is better than nothing. If you have stays in any of the hotels in the areas that they have bonuses on, this will not change any stays though.

  • New hotels can be a bit of a gamble so I like the idea of a small incentive like this.

    • I’ve definitely read a couple of horror stories about things like the AC not working at a new hotel.

    • I just stayed in a new hotel recently without knowing it was new (I just booked a hotel in Amarillo based on price/location – no clue it was new). I show up and the pool is still under construction. Quite frustrating to say the least.

  • It is welcome news that even award stays are qualified for the bonus.

  • I really like Hyatt’s program as I feel i am getting the most out of my points. With marriott, there is so many blackout dates on certificates and award bookings

  • 2.25 cents each? I guess it’s splitting hairs but I baseline them at 2 cents each. Anything more is outstanding and I don’t book anything less.

  • Congrats to Hyatt on being able to expand at a time when other hotels have been contracting by selling properties.

  • Christian Davis says:

    Too bad this is such a short window to stay. Hopefully there are some good bonus opportunities in the second half of the year as things open up again.

  • Maria Perez says:

    Hyatt Hotels are great, I liked this prootion a lot!

  • I am really a fan of Hyatt hotels, and with extra benefits like this, it makes it easier to justify searching them out. I only with there were more Hyatt house locations across the US.

  • There are some wonderful properties on the list, but it is still a bit early for us.

  • I didn’t think that I would have the opportunity to stay at any of these hotels, but there’s at least one that is in an area where I work. I’ll have to keep that in mind. I usually stay at the Hyatt place but I can stay at a Hyatt House if it means some extra points.

  • Bhikhu Shah says:

    Great offer, but I don’t think we’ll be staying in a hotel just yet.

  • Jean Ellen MacMillan says:

    AwardWallet is a great service and a convenient way to earn AA miles. Thanks

  • Thanks for the list of participating hotels. I might be able to take advantage of this offer!
