One of the lesser known Hyatt brands is Hyatt House, which is Hyatt’s extended-stay brand that has studios, one- and two-bedrooms kitchen suites with full kitchens, living rooms, spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Hyatt House properties also offers complimentary Free WiFi and they are pet-friendly. However, they just announced some new perks when staying with them.
New perks at Hyatt House include:
Very Important Resident (VIR) program: Guests staying 30+ nights will receive personalized perks to make their transition from home to hotel even easier, including complimentary food and laundry credits, a pick-your-suite option, VIP welcome amenities and more.
The Morning Spread: Complimentary breakfast featuring a made-to-order Omelet Bar, as well as oatmeal, yogurts, fresh fruit and other breakfast goodness. Guests will also find specialty items including vegetarian and gluten-free options.
Hyatt Has It – Borrows: A service that allows guests to borrow items commonly forgotten at home or that just weren’t practical to pack, such as phone chargers, curling irons, blenders and more.
Take a look at which properties will have the new Morning Spread breakfast:
Overall it’s nice to see Hyatt putting some effort into Hyatt House, especially since many competitors like Hilton Garden Inn and the like already offer some of these amenities like breakfast. I actually just stayed at the Hyatt Place in Austin and had a great experience, so I’m starting to consider the non-premium brands of chains more.
The VIR amenities aren’t actually that impressive to me since at 30+ nights you could likely already be a Hyatt Gold Passport member (25 stays/50 nights), though if you are spending the majority of your time at Hyatt House properties on extended stays it’s nice to get extra benefits when your nights might not already qualify you for a higher tier (though you get Platinum status at 5 stays/15 nights).
While these new benefits aren’t enough for me to plan a trip to one deliberately, if I happen to be in a area that only has limited service hotels, I would definitely consider one of these properties. Even after the introduction of the Chase Sapphire Reserve, the Chase Sapphire Preferred is still a fantastic choice if you want to avoid the Reserve’s $450 annual fee, earn 2x on all travel & dining and earn a 50,000 point sign up bonus.
