As a Hyatt Diamond member (earned the hard way) one of my favorite benefits are the Diamond Suite upgrade certs. These become very important to our family because we can guarantee that we will have a bigger room when we are traveling as a family of 4. If you are new to Hyatt Diamond (maybe you did the recent status match and gained Diamond status) as a reminder you can and should, “Treat yourself to a suite upgrade at the time of reservation four times annually on eligible paid nights.” Last year I waited until the last minute to use one of mine and found myself with long hold times with Hyatt. Don’t forget to make your reservations and use your Diamond Suite upgrade certs by the February 29th deadline.

  1. Important to note that you must RESERVE the nights you plan to use the certificates by their expiration date. You don’t necessarily have to have a Hyatt stay prior to their expiration dates.

    For instance we found ourselves with four certificates at the end of the year and realized they would expire so we planned four trips in 2016, applied the certificates, and triple-checked with Hyatt to make sure they would be valid. They said they will work -as long as we don’t cancel or revise the reservation AFTER the expiration date.

    Thanks for the reminder – Nobody should let these go to waste. Hyatt is now our favorite hotel brand, at least until Diamond status expires….
