Bottom Line

The great thing about doing a Hyatt Diamond Challenge now is that the status would last through February 2016 meaning you will maintain this status for 17 months.

Another cool thing about doing a challenge is that you earn the four Hyatt Diamond suite upgrades at the start of the challenge, so you can use while completing the challenge.

  1. i want to do the challenge but may need to add some mattress runs locally. Any suggestions how and where to do the in So Calif? Do you actually need to stay or can you online check in?
    How long does it take once you request to get status?
    Sorry for all the questions and thank you for all the informative insight.

  2. I’m staying at a Hyatt as part of a conference–the rate was negotiated down for conference attendees. Would these nights count toward the challenge?

  3. My wife just finished the spend requirement to earn 2 Free rewards nights with Hyatt. I spent hours looking for upper tier availability and also spoke with a reservations specialist. Bottom line, do not expect to get upper tier awards with Hyatt. I checked the US and 4 European countries over a nine month period. Nothing!
