Hyatt Gold Passport is the loyalty programme of Hyatt Hotels, which allows members to earn and redeem points for stays based on a seven-tier category system.
The hospitality group recently announced major changes to the Hyatt Gold Passport award chart, which will see 56 hotels move to lower categories and 50 hotels bumped up.
The changes will take effect on August 1.
Reservations made until then will continue to be based on the current award chart.
Members that use their points for stays after August 1 will receive a refund for the point difference if their hotels have been moved to lower categories.
For example, Hyatt Regency Guiyang is currently a Category 2 property but will become a Category 1 hotel. This means members who booked a standard room for after August 1 will be entitled to a 3,000 point refund.
The Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur will be downgraded from a category 4 to category 3 hotel
The number of points required for redemption has not changed:
|Hotel category||Standard room points per night||Regency/Grand Club points per night||Suite points per night|
