Hyatt hasn’t been one for promotions this year, with only one program-wide offer in all of 2017 and nothing since June. However, they’re now trying to remedy the situation with an offer for double points and a percentage off of their Exhale services. Is it worth it for you the consumer? Let’s take a look.
The new points promo is being offered for six weeks only on stays completed between November 15 and December 31, 2017. In order to qualify, you must register by November 30 through Hyatt.com or the World of Hyatt app. Stays booked through other means are not eligible for the promotion. Only your base points on the room occupied by the cardholder will be doubled, but M-life-eligible nights are also eligible. You’ll receive your points two or three weeks after your stay.
So, it looks like you earn double points only on one room, even if you book more than that. You also don’t earn double points on additional services, just the basic room. Sounds less than generous. Will their Exhale services promotion make up for it?
Exhale is a spa provider that Hyatt has acquired to appeal to a health and wellness crowd. Between now and February 28, 2018, new exhale guests who are also World of Hyatt members can get a one-week package for $30 that includes unlimited fitness classes, 10 percent off purchases made in the wellbeing boutique and 20 percent off spa therapies in Atlanta Midtown, Dallas, Boston Battery Wharf, Boston Back Bay, Miami Bal Harbour, Miami Downtown and Miami South Beach. You must provide proof of World of Hyatt Membership before checking in. If you’re looking to go to the New York Flatiron Exhale, the offer is for a $40 one-week package with unlimited fitness classes and 10 percent off wellbeing boutique purchases.
What does this work out to? It looks like you’ll get $10 off fitness classes and $25 off spa therapies that take an hour to an hour and a half. You’re not offered any bonus points for trying out Exhale as a new customer either. It hardly seems worth it.
If you’re staying at the Hyatt anyway, feel free to take advantage of their double points for booking, but don’t go out of your way to make a trip for a less than generous offer. The same goes for the royal treatment at Exhale spas. If you’re looking to try them out, you may want to wait for a more substantial proposal.
