New Hyatt 20% Off Rate (Includes Breakfast)

Hyatt has launched a new discounted room rate:

  • 15% off plus breakfast
  • 20% off plus breakfast for loyalty program members

This is available for bookings made by September 8 for stays checking in through December 20, 2020.

The member rate prices 20% below the ‘Daily Rate’. That means it isn’t 20% lower than the best rate you can find (it won’t be 20% off AAA, for instance) but it’ll generally be the best rate.

It’s not just base rooms that are available at ‘20% off’ you can book suites as well.

Bear in mind that hotels know this rate is being offered, it isn’t a secret. It’s publicly advertised at Hyatt.com without a need to log in. That makes this effectively ‘the discount rate Hyatt wants to be promoting’. However the Hyatt Daily Rate really is what you’ll find at most large online travel agency sites, and those rate parity rules ensure that the discount is ‘real’.

That said, the room rate doesn’t have to be available for all dates. And it isn’t offered at “Hyatt Ziva, Hyatt Zilara, Hyatt Residence Club hotels or resorts, some Destination Residences, Alila Ventana/Big Sur, Miraval Austin, and Miraval Tucson.”

However if you’re able to book it you can cancel within 24 hours of check-in and stays through September 15 earn Hyatt’s new bonus of 2500 points for first stay if you’re elite, triple points starting with second stay.

Between promotions and discounting – though in some cases I’d expect to see lower prices – Hyatt is aggressively working to put heads back in beds. I wouldn’t make decisions on this rate based on breakfast though which in many cases, due to cost conscious attempts at distancing in many cases breakfast will be a shadow of its former self.

  1. If the included Hyatt breakfast is a pre-made sandwich, packaged cereals and juice boxes, it has very little value.

  2. Breakfast at the Hyatt House Houston Galleria this morning was individually packaged cookies, chewy granola bars, and whole oranges. I think I would have been less upset if they didn’t offer anything at all.

    No employees even had masks with them.

    Too dangerous to feed guests, but but not dangerous enough to actually follow city mask mandates.

  3. agree with other posters – blogs, your’s included, seem to give a high value to the “free” breakfast (never mind many doctors say it is a habit and not required that something very light is better until lunch). In today’s world unless it is a comp at a full service restaurant where someone can prepare and bring you breakfast it is of little value. I’ve stayed in 4 different hotels since the lock down ended and at 3 of them it was prepackaged muffins (incredibly high in sodium, calories and chemicals) plus a power bar. One had “hot” food but it was powered eggs! At least they had low fat yogurt for me.

    I wouldn’t pay a dime for breakfast being included. You don’t know what you will get and if you are actually hungry in the morning find somewhere for a cup of coffee and something light but healthy (fruit, yogurt, etc.). not only will be be cheap but also a lot better for you than the typical hotel breakfast (especially now).
