  1. Your post is misleading. The annual free night is restricted to Hyatt property category 1-4, but the 2-night sign up bonus does not carry this restriction. You should clarify in the title or at least the introduction.

  2. I’m trying to use my free night and I’m finding when I search online that, while points nights are available, the free night award is not showing on the nicer resorts. I was under the understanding that if rooms were available, the free night would be as well. Am I missing some kind of blackout clause or something? I’ve checked for Papagayo, Trinidad, Puerto Rico, Miami, and more. And so far have only found a free night in Daytona at a Hyatt Place (ugh) searching a 6 months time period.

    On the same note, Papagayo seems to have points nights wide open, but no free nights and no points and cash.

  3. can I use my free night from my Hyatt credit card at the Hyatt downtown in Los Angeles?

    if not what hotels can I use it in the Los Angeles area?
