World of Hyatt and Small Luxury Hotels Loyalty Alliance

As a follow-up to the initial announcement, World of Hyatt members will now be able to earn and redeem points at over 50 Small Luxury Hotels starting December 6, 2018. Additional SLH properties are expected to join the program throughout the rest of 2018 and into 2019.

World of Hyatt members will earn elite qualifying nights at SLH properties, and all World of Hyatt members will receive additional benefits including Wi-Fi, continental breakfast, room upgrades, and early check-in and late check-out.

What’s unique about the World of Hyatt benefits at Small Luxury Hotels properties is that there is no differentiation for Discoverist, Explorist, and Globalist, making SLH properties even more enriching for Discoverist members.

Additionally as a result, World of Hyatt is implementing a new Category 8, which will cost 40,000 points per night to stay at. A select number of SLH properties will be added in at this category, however no legacy Hyatt properties will be moving up.
