A lot has been written since Hyatt announce it’s version of devaluation late yesterday. I like the review by my Canadian fellow blogger.
The really bad thing is the increase for suite and Regency Club upgrades, from 6,000 and 3,000 points for up to 4 nights (respectively) to those same numbers per night. Makes the Diamond Suite upgrades even more valuable.
The really bad news, in my book, is the Hyatt 48 Lex which goes from 18k to 25k points per night. Whilst 18k was undervalued for New York, the increase (38%) is huge.
Whilst the devaluation is not as bad as it could have been (small consolation), and I doubt it will change my staying habits much, I wanted to let you know that there is still time to get some extra Gold Passport points if you need them.
