With today being New Year’s Day, this is a very relevant question that was asked of me, so I wanted to post the answer for everyone to see.
Let’s say you checked into a Hyatt hotel on December 31, 2014 (or any date in 2014), and checked out on January 1, 2015 (or any date in 2015). What program year would the stay/nights count for?
There’s actually two answers to this question, and both fall in the favor of the Hyatt Gold Passport customer.
Here’s the technical “correct answer:” The stay will post and count for the 2015 program year, meaning you’ll have a head start on your 2015 elite status track.
However, what if you’re one stay or so many nights short for 2014, and this last night or stay is what you need to cross into the next elite status tier? You can call Hyatt Gold Passport and they can manually adjust your account to reflect the stay on the more beneficial year – in the case of this example, 2014.
Hopefully many of you qualified or re-qualified for Hyatt Diamond status like I did! If not, consider buying Hyatt Platinum Status for $149.
