Last month, Hyatt introduced its Work From Hyatt program, with packages at more than two dozen properties across the U.S., Mexico and the Caribbean. They were designed for the countless people working remotely or attending “Zoom University” looking for ways to flip the script on the pandemic and use their newfound flexibility to change up their routine — at least for a few days.

These packages, which start from $139 per night with a seven-night minimum stay requirement, include standard amenities like a dedicated workspace, housekeeping, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi and discounted or complimentary laundry. And, depending on the property, you’ll receive additional perks like complimentary pool cabanas, free rounds of golf, s’mores kits, private cooking classes, a dedicated concierge and free kids’ programs.
Resort fees are waived when you book a Work from Hyatt package, and you’ll still receive the benefits you normally would, including points earning, elite-night earning and elite-status benefits (if applicable). You’ll also be able to use your World of Hyatt points to book a Work from Hyatt package.
With more than 60 participating properties, you should have no problem finding a place to go, whether your idea of a perfect remote work or learning destination is a ski lodge or an all-inclusive Caribbean resort.
Some of our favorite hotels currently offering a Work from Hyatt package include a slew of Hyatt Regency properties including the Hyatt Regency Lake Tahoe in California, the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, the Hyatt Regency Clearwater in Florida, the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa at Gainey Ranch in Arizona and the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa in Texas.
And we’d also love to work remotely from the Park Hyatt Aviara in California, the Grand Hyatt Vail in Colorado, Hyatt Ziva and Zilara Rose Hall in Jamaica, Hyatt Ziva and Zilara Cap Cana in the Dominican Republic and especially the suspended daybed on the balcony at The Cape, a Thompson Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Some of our favorite additions to the list include the Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya near Cancun, Mexico, the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek in Colorado, the Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour, Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort, Spa and Casino, the Andaz Costa Rica Resort at Peninsula Papagayo, and so many more.
What Work From Hyatt packages tell us about travel
Hyatt more than doubled the number of hotels participating in the Work From Hyatt program, meaning it’s seen positive feedback from travelers. In fact, based on customer feedback, we can learn a little more about the mindset of a pandemic traveler in 2020.
Perhaps most significantly, travelers are booking trips much closer-in to the time of travel. Pre-pandemic, the majority of travelers would plan trips several months ahead of time, but now, according to Hyatt, the booking window for a Work From Hyatt vacation has decreased to about a month, with a quarter of all of these stays beginning in late September.
According to the chain, the majority of the Work From Hyatt reservations are slated for 2020, indicating people want a break from their everyday routine.
Finally, people want to travel closer to home and places with warm weather and wide-open spaces. The regions that have seen the most Work From Hyatt bookings are Florida, Southern California and Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. And within these regions, the most-booked resorts (except for the Mexican resorts) are ones that people can easily drive to, like the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa in Southwest Florida and the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.
If you want to book one of these packages for yourself, you can find more information here on availability and pricing, or call Hyatt directly at 1-866-886-5053 and use the booking code WFHYAT.
