World of Hyatt rewards its members for each hotel stay across its global portfolio. You can earn points on all Hyatt hotel stays booked directly through Hyatt’s website, which includes the 300+ Small Luxury Hotels of the World properties that were added last year along with the Thompson and Joie de Vivre brands added as part of the Two Roads Hospitality integration. The exact number of points you’ll earn on each stay depends on a few different factors:

  • How much you paid for your stay
  • Your World of Hyatt elite status tier
  • Any promotions for which you’ve registered

Travelers with World of Hyatt elite status will earn an additional points bonus on all hotel stays. Here’s how many extra points each tier earns:

  • Discoverist: 10% bonus (0.5 extra points per dollar spent)
  • Explorist: 20% bonus (1 extra point per dollar spent)
  • Globalist: 30% bonus (1.5 extra points per dollar spent)

In addition to this double points promotion, Hyatt is currently offering members the opportunity to earn 3,000 bonus points — worth $51 based on TPG’s most recent valuations — for every paid stay at SLH properties through March 2, 2020, if you registered by the end of January.
