Hyatt, interestingly, has 5 status levels, though there’s a lot of “blur” between each of the levels – it’s not as cut and dry as airline status.
- Platinum, the most basic status (you can buy this status for $149)
- Diamond, the highest tier status, earned by staying nights or stays
- Lifetime Diamond, earned with $200,000 in spending and 10 years of loyalty
- Diamond Premier, the status I’ll explain in this post
- Courtesy Card, which is a select status you can earn upon nomination of a hotel, or extensive revenue spending
As a Hyatt Diamond, I recently came across the additional “Premier” titling as I was checking in to a Hyatt Regency. So, what do you need to do to become a Diamond Premier?
Well, not a lot, actually…other than the fact that you need to own a hotel. It’s as “simple” as that.
Once you own a Hyatt hotel, you’ll earn Diamond status, though I suspect it might be much cheaper to earn it based on completing the minimum annual stay/night requirement… 😉
Another competing chain, Accor hotels, has offered a similar offer for their top tier status, Platinum, whereby you can essentially purchase it for $1900, owning stock in the company.
