I’m turning into quite the Hyatt junkie. I also love my Chase Ultimate Rewards points. So how did using my Ink Plus® Business Card get me a $3,000-a-night Diplomatic Suite at the Park Hyatt in Abu Dhabi?
Using a Points + Cash stay from Hyatt, I booked a room for 3 nights at the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi – a Hyatt Category 5 – at 10,000 Hyatt Gold Passport points + $125 cash per night.
- The suite upgrade – well, that part is just a little more unbelievable. We were checking in as a Diamond guest. The confirmation was for a Park King Suite. When we arrived at the front desk, the agent was cordial and told us that we were going to receive an upgrade. I figured it would be a Suit with a better view – never expecting a Diplomatic Suite … the second nicest suite below the Presidential Suite.
How To Use Chase Points
The points can be transferred to loyalty partners, and if you don’t know how to do that, just see my “How To Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards To Travel Partners” for a step by step process. Of course, I chose Hyatt!
This is one of those situations that is just unreal – receiving an amazing amount of points from Chase for applying for a credit card and meeting the minimum spend, and then transferring them to the amazing Hyatt hotel chain, and then landing the ‘big fish’ suite upgrade. I’ll post a room report on my Diplomatic Suite (with lots of pictures) soon … stay tuned!
