Hyatt announced a new partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH), where World of Hyatt members will be able to earn and redeem World of Hyatt points at participating SLH hotels when members book through Hyatt channels. Participating SLH hotels have not yet been determined, however will be shared closer to launch later this year.
Additionally, eligible stays by World of Hyatt members at participating SLH hotels will earn tier night credits when booked through Hyatt channels.
For those looking for an accelerated way to qualify for elite status this summer, you can Earn Double Elite Qualifying Nights at Andaz Hotels through August 31, 2018. Additionally, Hyatt currently has an offer going on where Hyatt Cardholders Earn 10% Back on Redeemed Points through September 30, 2018.
Hyatt currently offers an extensive partnership with MGM Resorts International, where World of Hyatt members can earn and redeem at MLife properties, which has been a tremendous hit, for World of Hyatt members traveling to Las Vegas.
Hyatt Hotels Corporation and Small Luxury Hotels of the World today announced plans to bring World of Hyatt members opportunities to enjoy loyalty benefits in many more places. The launch is targeted for the end of the year.
Hyatt, a leading hospitality company with more than 700 hotels worldwide, and SLH, a collection of more than 500 independently owned luxury hotels around the world, are working together to offer World of Hyatt members the opportunity to earn and redeem points during stays at participating SLH hotels when they book through Hyatt channels.
“We are constantly looking for ways to add value for our many independently spirited hotels. This coming alliance with World of Hyatt does just that,” said Filip Boyen, chief executive officer, Small Luxury Hotels of the World™. “Our work together will allow World of Hyatt members to enjoy loyalty benefits across a wider choice of small independent luxury hotels. For SLH, our hotels are our brand, and we look forward to expected increased occupancy with significant exposure to the World of Hyatt program’s more than 10 million members.”
What’s great with this new partnership is that will increase the properties for World of Hyatt members to earn and redeem, especially in Europe and Asia, where Hyatt’s footprint isn’t as large as their competitors such as Marriott.
It’s still yet to be determined which SLH properties will be participating, however I’m optimistic that we’ll see a great level of engagement from their collection of hotels once this launches later this year.
