World of Hyatt is one of the most valuable hotel currencies based on TPG’s points and miles valuations. As with most hotel points, you’ll usually get the most value from your World of Hyatt points when you redeem them for hotel stays.

However, there are some complexities regarding Hyatt’s award charts. For example, while many Hyatt properties fall into one of eight award categories, there are several award charts to consider. There are also separate award charts for Miraval branded properties and all-inclusive resorts. Not to mention, there are some award types you can’t book online.

In this guide, we’ll look at the World of Hyatt award charts and show you how to maximize Hyatt award redemptions.

Hyatt brands

There are currently 26 Hyatt hotel brands, ranging from luxury hotels to all-inclusive resorts and upscale extended-stay properties. Hyatt organizes its brands into three collections as follows:

  • Timeless collection: Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt, Hyatt Residence Club, Hyatt Place, Hyatt House and UrCove by Hyatt.
  • Boundless collection: Miraval, Alila, Andaz, Thompson Hotels, Hyatt Centric, Caption by Hyatt, The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Destination by Hyatt and JdV by Hyatt.
  • Inclusive collection: Hyatt Ziva, Hyatt Zilara, Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, Secrets Resorts & Spas, Breathless Resorts & Spas, Dreams Resorts & Spas, Vivid Hotels & Resorts, Alua Hotels & Resorts and Sunscape Resorts & Spas.

Many of the all-inclusive brands come from Hyatt’s acquisition of Apple Leisure Group. Hyatt has integrated some of the properties into World of Hyatt, and more resorts from this acquisition will join World of Hyatt later this summer. However, as you’ll see in a later section, Hyatt has a separate award chart for its all-inclusive properties.

Hyatt award chart for standard rooms

Most Hyatt properties, including participating Small Luxury Hotels of the World and MGM Rewards destinations, utilize a standard award chart for booking free nights. The primary exceptions that use separate award charts are all-inclusive resorts and the Miraval brand, which I’ll discuss later.

Hyatt implemented peak and off-peak pricing in Oct. 2021. So, here’s the Hyatt award chart for booking standard rooms at off-peak, standard and peak rates:

Hotel category Off-peak points per night Standard points per night Peak points per night
1 3,500. 5,000. 6,500.
2 6,500. 8,000. 9,500.
3 9,000. 12,000. 15,000.
4 12,000. 15,000. 18,000.
5 17,000. 20,000. 23,000.
6 21,000. 25,000. 29,000.
7 25,000. 30,000. 35,000.
8 35,000. 40,000. 45,000.

Here’s a look at the hotels and resorts in each category: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.

You can also use Points + Cash to book a standard room at Hyatt hotels and resorts, Hyatt Residence Club resorts and MGM Resorts destinations in Las Vegas. When you use Points + Cash, you pay 50% of the points required based on the chart above and get 50 to 70% off the standard rate for the room type you’re booking.

You can book standard awards, including Points + Cash awards, online. When these rates are available, you’ll see them when you check the “Use points” box before searching.

Hyatt award chart for club rooms

You can book club rooms at select Hyatt properties for slightly more points than standard rooms. As you might have guessed, these rooms give you access to the hotel club lounge, which typically offers guests complimentary breakfast, snacks, drinks and appetizers.

Here’s the award chart for club rooms:

Hotel category Off-peak points per night Standard points per night Peak points per night
1 5,500. 7,000. 8,500.
2 10,500. 12,000. 13,500.
3 14,000. 17,000. 20,000.
4 18,000. 21,000. 24,000.
5 24,000. 27,000. 30,000.
6 29,000. 33,000. 37,000.
7 34,000. 39,000. 44,000.
8 45,000. 50,000. 55,000.

When available, you can book club rooms online using points. Check the “Use points” box and scroll past the standard room awards listed on the results page when you search online.

You can book most suites with points online. However, you’ll need to call 800-544-9288 or contact your nearest Global Contact Center to book suites at Hyatt Residence Club resorts and suites (or standard suites or premium suites at Hyatt hotels and resorts) using Points + Cash.

Hyatt award chart for room upgrades

If you find a cheap paid night, redeeming points for a room upgrade might make sense. Here’s how many Hyatt points you’ll need to redeem for each upgrade type:

  • Club upgrade: 3,000 points per night.
  • Standard suite upgrade: 6,000 points per night.
  • Premium suite upgrade: 9,000 points per night.

Room upgrades may not be available at all Hyatt hotel or resort locations. There may also be minimum room type and rate requirements that you must meet to upgrade your reservation.

You can book new stays online. However, to upgrade an existing paid stay using points, you’ll need to call 800-544-9288 in the U.S. and Canada or your nearest Global Contact Center.

115,000 (premium suite).

Here’s a look at the hotels in each category: A, B, C, D, E and F.

Hyatt is still integrating some of the properties it obtained through its acquisition of Apple Leisure Group. So, although there aren’t currently any all-inclusive properties in the D, E and F categories, this may change soon.

Only two guests are included in Hyatt’s award night rate at all-inclusive resorts. So, as you can see in the following chart, you’ll need to use more points if you plan to bring a third or fourth guest on your award stay.

All-inclusive category Off-peak points per person for the third or fourth guest Standard points per person for the third or fourth guest Peak points per person for the third or fourth guest
A 6,500. 7,500. 8,500.
B 8,500. 10,000. 11,500.
C 10,500. 12,500. 14,500.
D 13,000. 15,000. 17,000.
E 17,000. 20,000. 23,000.
F 22,000. 25,000. 29,000.

Based on the points cost for additional guests, a family of four might prefer redeeming for two rooms with two guests each instead of one room with four guests.

There are three Miraval Resorts currently open and bookable with Hyatt points: Miraval Arizona Resort and Spa, Miraval Austin Resort and Spa and Miraval Berkshires Resort and Spa. These high-end properties are all-inclusive, making the high redemption rates easier to justify. The award chart is the same, regardless of which property you book:

Award type Off-peak points per night Standard points per night Peak points per night
Standard room 40,000 (single occupancy).

57,500 (double occupancy).

45,000 (single occupancy).

65,000 (double occupancy).

105,000 (single occupancy).

125,000 (double occupancy).

115,000 (single occupancy).

137,000 (double occupancy).

Every award night at Miraval includes meals, a $175 resort credit per person, fitness classes and wellness activities. You can book the Berkshires location online, while you’ll need to call to book stays at the other locations. Points + Cash rates are available at Miraval properties as well.

How many Hyatt points do you need for a free night?

You need 3,500 Hyatt points to book an off-peak award night in a standard room at a Category 1 Hyatt property. However, you could book a room for as little as 1,750 Hyatt points plus a cash copay if you book a Points + Cash rate.

There are a lot of impressive Hyatt Category 1 properties. For inspiration, check out our guides to the best international Category 1 Hyatt properties and the best U.S. Category 1 Hyatt properties.

What is a Hyatt point worth?

Based on TPG’s valuations, a Hyatt point is worth 1.7 cents. This valuation is based on the value TPG can get from using Hyatt points to book award nights and the value at which TPG is willing to buy Hyatt points.

How can you earn Hyatt points?

There are many ways to earn Hyatt points, such as through paid stays, travel partnerships and more. One easy way to earn Hyatt points is by using the World of Hyatt Credit Card, which offers a sign-up bonus for new cardholders and bonus categories for ongoing spending. Meanwhile, a quick way to boost your balance is to transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Hyatt.

How do you redeem for Hyatt award nights?

If you know the city you want to visit using Hyatt points, simply search as you normally would on Hyatt’s website and check the box next to “Use points.”

Otherwise, you can use Hyatt’s Explore Map function to filter Hyatt properties based on hotel amenities, hotel category and brand. This feature can be a great way to quickly find properties in a particular brand as well as low or high category properties in specific parts of the world.

Do Hyatt points expire?

Hyatt points expire if your account is inactive for 24 consecutive months. However, there are many ways to keep your World of Hyatt account active. For example, you could earn Hyatt points on an eligible hotel stay or buy Hyatt points. You could also combine points with another World of Hyatt member’s account or have an active World of Hyatt Credit Card associated with your World of Hyatt account.

Bottom line

The World of Hyatt award chart can be overwhelming since there are multiple room types that you can book with points. However, all of this can be a good thing once you get a handle on the award charts – especially for travelers interested in booking upgraded rooms or all-inclusive resorts. Even if you prefer to stick to the low-end of the award chart and stretch your Hyatt points, there’s still a lot of value to be found.
