Hyatt's loyalty alliance with Small Luxury Hotels of the
World goes into effect Dec. 6, when Hyatt customers can begin earning and
redeeming points at 50 SLH properties.
Most of the initial 50 hotels in the Hyatt program are in
Europe. They include Hotel Lord Byron in Rome, Centurion Palace in Venice, On
the Rocks in Santorini and Hotel de Orangerie in Bruges, Belgium.
World of Hyatt members will earn 5 base points per dollar
spent on SLH accommodations. Qualifying nights at SLH hotels will count toward
earning Hyatt elite-tier status.
Members will receive their standard tier bonus points on SLH
accommodations: Discoverists earning 10% bonus, Explorists 20% and Globalists 30%.
Each SLH property has been categorized in Hyatt's hotel
award chart, which includes a new Category 8 at 40,000 points.
SLH properties will also grant a variety of on-property
benefits to World of Hyatt members, including free Wi-Fi, daily breakfast, room
upgrade options and early check-in and late checkout, based on availability.
World of Hyatt plans to expand the partnership to additional
SLH properties throughout 2019.
