I recently at the Hyatt Place Chantilly/Dulles Airport-North, as part of accumulating some nights for my Hyatt Diamond Challenge.
I noticed an unusually low rate for the night I stayed, so I decided to book.
Interestingly, I noticed a “Gas N Go Package” rate of $84, ten more dollars than the Hyatt Daily Rate. When I clicked on the package, it offered me a $25 gas card. So, I could either book a $74 hotel room, or I could book an $84 room and essentially get $25 back. That’s a no brainer.
When I booked the room, I got my confirmation email, and it did in fact confirm my $25 gas card.
When I checked in, the clerk went to the back office, and low and behold pulled out a $25 Visa Gift Card. She told me it could be used on any purchase I like, and not just at a gas station. Intrigued, I inquired whether I could use it in the morning and she said I could!
So…basically…if you stay at a Hyatt, and there’s a $25 Gas N Go Package, you’re guaranteeing yourself at least a $25 discount off of the room rate. While I don’t know if all Hyatt’s offer a similar package, or even use the Visa Gift Cards in lieu of a true gas card, this is quite a deal.
So, combined with my $25 gift card, I paid $59 for my stay, before taxes. Too cool.
Has anyone else found this benefit before?
