Hyatt Award Chart Updates More Good Than Bad

Hyatt posted their award chart updates.

22 properties went up in categories, but 48 properties went down.

Some highlights:

Hyatt Place Orlando Airport21

I actually really enjoyed this Hyatt Place property and it is really convenient.  I’m surprised (but glad) to see it go down in category.


I have no idea why Excalibur is going up in category when you can regularly get rooms there ridiculously cheap.  And it definitely does not stand up to other Hyatt category 3s in service/comfort/cleanliness.

Grand Hyatt Washington54

While this is a very nice property, you can regularly find the room for $85 when conventions aren’t going on.

Park Hyatt Washington65

Similar to the GH, I usually see this going for ~$200, plus it does not have the amenities of other Park Hyatts.

MGM Grand54
Mandalay Bay65

I never understood the category pricing of the MLife properties, so I’m glad to see these go down.
Park Hyatt Maldives, Hadahaa from 6 to 7: I have a feeling a lot of those in the frequent flier community will be upset by this.

A reminder, you can book stays prior to January 22nd at the lower category if the hotel is about to jump up.  Also, if the hotel you are booked at goes down in category level, you will receive a refund of points.
