It's been a busy year for the World of Hyatt program. From a new partnership with expedition company Lindblad to the addition of brands like Thompson and Joie de Vivre, Hyatt is working hard to expand the number of ways to earn and redeem points for its members.

Now, the program is back with a sixth round of integration from Small Luxury Hotels of the World — as of today, another 56 properties have been added to Hyatt's award chart. Following previous additions from December, January, February, May and October, this brings the total number of SLH properties available using Hyatt points to over 300. When you consider that Hyatt's own branded hotels number less than 1,000, this represents a fantastic expansion of the program's award chart.

To celebrate, Hyatt is also launching a new promotion for stays at participating SLH properties. Members will earn 3,000 bonus points — worth $51 based on TPG's most recent valuations — for every paid stay between December 10, 2019 and March 2, 2020. Registration is required by January 31, 2020, so visit this link to make sure you don't miss out on a decent haul of Hyatt points.

Hyatt notes that the SLH partnership has added a total of 27 additional countries with participating properties for members to earn and redeem points, and the new additions as of today look quite enticing, including:

The new properties will offer the same earning rates and perks as previous additions. World of Hyatt members will earn 5 points per dollar spent on paid stays, and elite members will earn the standard bonuses. All Hyatt travelers, regardless of status, will enjoy a number of on-property benefits, including daily complimentary continental breakfast for two, a space-available, one-category room upgrade at check in, and early check-in/late checkout (subject to availability). You can find full details of the Hyatt-SLH partnership at this link.

Note that these properties also count as Hyatt hotels when you swipe the World of Hyatt Credit Card, so you'd earn an additional 4 Hyatt points per dollar spent, making this a terrific option for these stays.

All 56 of these new properties have also been added for award stays, and they cover the following categories, with standard award rates in parentheses:

  • Category 3 (12,000 points per night): 1 hotel
  • Category 4 (15,000 points): 5 hotels
  • Category 5 (20,000 points): 10 hotels
  • Category 6 (25,000 points): 17 hotels
  • Category 7 (30,000 points): 13 hotels
  • Category 8 (40,000 points): 10 hotels

Just remember that World of Hyatt will be adding peak and off-peak pricing starting in March 2020, so these award rates will fluctuate based on the dates of travel.

  2. Rome, Italy (previously #1)
  3. Shanghai, China (previously #4)
