Thoughts About (another) Weird Hyatt Booking Bug

I’ve come across another strange Hyatt booking bug.

I think it only happens in Chrome, but I keep trying to book award stays that never go through.  When I click *book*, it says my session has timed out.

I think I found a common thread to whenever I have this problem.  For some reason, when the Hyatt property is available on points the first night but not the second night, it sometimes has displayed points as an option when booking.

Then the website freaks out when I choose that option and ends my session.  Because that option isn’t actually available.

When I break up the trip, I can book the first night on points and the second night in cash.

YMMV with this problem, but I figured I’d drop a note about it in case anyone else is having a frustrating time with it.

Another Big Hyatt Website Bug

I keep running into the weirdest Hyatt bugs, but this one would have been particularly …


  1. Mind reader! The exact same thing was happening to me last night – of course as I was trying to book rooms at the Baha Mar before they went up – and it was making me crazy. It also kept pulling up the other members of my family who all have Hyatt accounts, even though I had logged out of their accounts (repeatedly!) and logged into mine. I just gave up.
