Hyatt Debuts New Loyalty Benefits for Hyatt Gold Passport Members

Frequent guests at Hyatt hotels will enjoy some new perks this year, according to Hyatt Hotels Corp., which today announced three new benefits for members of its Hyatt Gold Passport loyalty program.

Available to Hyatt Gold Passport members who achieve Diamond status through 25 stays or 50 nights each calendar year, the new benefits include:

• Guest of Honor: Beginning March 1, members can extend their Diamond in-hotel benefits such as Regency Club or Grand Club access, free breakfast, and late check out to family or friends when they transfer a free night stay using Hyatt Gold Passport points. 

• United Club Passes: Also beginning March 1, Diamond members will receive two complimentary United Club one-time passes annually. Diamond members will receive access to more than 45 United Club locations at airports served by United Airlines.

• Premium Wi-Fi: Beginning Feb. 14, Diamond and Platinum members will receive premium Wi-Fi access in guest rooms and social spaces, such as lobbies and Hyatt-operated restaurants, at every Hyatt hotel worldwide.

"Listening to our guests around the world is an important part of building meaningful relationships, and our best members have expressed a desire for a relationship that goes beyond a hotel stay," Jeff Zidell, senior vice president, Hyatt Gold Passport, said in a statement. "These new Diamond benefits broaden the traditional definition of loyalty and provide real value by celebrating and supporting our guests through their Hyatt experiences and beyond."
