If you’re a Hyatt Gold Passport member, chances are that you’ve come in contact with the loyalty program’s website — and probably not had the most user-friendly experience. For a while, the site was outdated, especially when compared with the sites of competitors like SPG. But Hyatt has just released a major refresh that should get Gold Passport members excited.

The new site features a more user-friendly experience, with important information more clearly spelled out and displayed for the user. Everything from the Free Nights award chart to the different levels of membership is more easy to find and read.

The new Free Nights award chart is easy to spot.

With the new site, it’s easy to book everything from paid stays to Points + Cash online. Upon signing in to your account, you’ll be able to see your progress to the next level of elite status and your current point balance. You can also easily search award availability at Hyatt properties across the world.

With the new site, there are some neat features, like “Rebook,” which automatically populates the name of the hotel of your most recent stay — you just need to select the dates for travel. There’s also a neat new feature that allows you to search for your next award stay based on a variety of factors, making it easy to do things like plan a trip based on how many points you have. You can watch this video, which shows the full functions of the new website.

Overall, all the changes I’ve come across have been pretty positive compared to the old site. The added functions can really make planning a trip more seamless, and the clarity in several areas of the site are a welcome addition.
