Hyatt & Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) Partnership (49 More Properties Added)

Update 10/14/19: Another 49 properties has been added. Bringing the total to over 250. Full list available here.

Update 7/20/19: Chase Hyatt cardholders now earn 3x/4x points on all purchases made at SLH properties.

Update 5/9/19: More properties have been added, there are now more than 200 properties available.

Update 2/27/19: An additional 57 SLH properties have been added. Bringing the total to 167 or ~30% of the portfolio. Full list available here.

Update 1/30/19: You can now book an additional 56 properties, bringing the total to 110 properties or roughly 20% of the SLH portfolio. You can view all these properties here.

Update 11/29/18: The Hyatt & Small Luxury Hotels of the World partnership is now live. To begin with 54 properties are available to book through Hyatt, this is roughly 10% of properties under the SLH umbrella, with the rest to be rolled out over time. You’re able to make reservations starting today, but first stays aren’t possible until December 6th, 2018.

Hyatt has announced a new partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH). Starting soon Hyatt members will be able to earn and redeem World of Hyatt at participating properties under the SLH banner. A full list of the 500+ SLH properties can be found here. Hyatt members will also get elite night credits for these stays if booked through Hyatt channels.

It’ll be interesting to see if the full 500+ property list will be eligible, or if it will be heavily property restricted based on properties opting in/out for the program. It looks like you’ll also need to book through Hyatt directly instead of SLH, so we will need to compare the pricing of the two as well. Keep in mind your Hyatt status isn’t recognized and SLH has their own elite program, so don’t expect room upgrades/breakfast based on your Hyatt status.

This partnership has the potential to be very useful for Hyatt members, but the execution will be what matters.

I’m happy that Hyatt is doing this partnership! Just looking at their available US Properties (they only have 22) I definitely like the 3 NYC Properties that are at or below $200 a night, meaning (hopefully) they’d be a Category 2 Property. 8k points for a night in NYC is a good deal to me when we visit we have to go to Jersey for a good 8k night, it’s only 20 mins from Manhattan so not too bad, but I’d really like to try out the new SLH ones in the city.

It would be really interesting to see if they’d be available in the WOH App or how the redemptions for those Properties will work. I’ve checked out their Oasis Properties and I’m definitely not impressed with their redemption rates or pricing at all.

Any thoughts on how the SLH US Properties will come out?

It looks like they have hotels priced less than $300 so hopefully whatever hotels participate are not all going to cost 30k points.

I would hope they’d go with the same categories Hyatt hotels get with similar price points, but I guess we will see!

They should just link DoC’s article/website to these promotional emails. I always find myself back to this site to read what the official email states in plain English.

I literally did just that – read the email, then came here to see what it means.

Do free night certificates work here? I have two free nights at any Hyatt property that expire in December.

Hyatt isn’t exactly in favor with the big blogs (until they introduced the new credit card) – but having maintained Globalist Status has been one of the best decisions I made for 2018-2019; Hyatt treatment (including suite upgrades) has been just outstanding. Here’s hoping they don’t get acquired by Hilton or IGH anytime soon. I understand someone will eventually buy them but hopefully it is still 4-5 years away.

Hyatt is my favorite of the bigger chains, I always find them the most consistent. Paired with UR transfers makes them my go to for most travel. I am excited about this partnership. I have always loved smaller boutique hotels and this opens the door for a good many in good locations.

These look absolutely fantastic.

Two thumbs up to the Wentworth Mansion in Charleston and the Trident Hotel in Jamaica.

I have been looking out for Trident Hotel for a long time. Now they just need to open up some award space.

Wentworth looks beautiful, but a bit too expensive on points at 30k/night when there are a few other great options in Charleston at 8k-12k/night!

Nice. Some options are better for points redemption than redeeming for Grand Hyatt or Hyatt Regency.

The Mozambique property is 20k points for a room that looks to average 600/night, and the Zanzibar property is at the new category 8 – 40k points for a $1800+/night cash rate!

These look great. Lots of properties in Greece where we’re planning to go in August. Looking at the ELOUNDA GULF VILLAS AND SUITES but doesn’t look like it’s bookable at all yet.

Anyone have experience with an announced property not being bookable and then coming online?

I tried to do dummy bookings (lots of dates) at both The Liming Baquia and the Sailrock Resort. Both show that they are not available to book on points. So even though they have been “added,” I can’t book them. What gives? Hyatt tells me that these hotels are not participating (yet?). If that’s the case then why market them as participating!!??

Is there a list of these hotels, sorted by average room cost per night?

Anyone stayed the Enzo Ango Fuya II in Kyoto? We were thinking of just staying at the Regency Osaka but this seems like a great option.

Is there a simple list of all participating properties (preferably grouped by region) and the number of points required? I’m more interested in the affordable boutique properties than the ones than the ones that will cost me 25,000+ points.

Here you go: https://www.hyatt.com/explore-hotels/small-luxury-hotels-of-the-world

You can switch between “list” and “map” view in the top right, and even filter down to specific award categories.

Thanks. That page is quite useful. Of course, it does show (not surprisingly) that most of the Small Luxury Hotels are expensive. But if you find one for 15,000 points, does anyone know if you can use a Hyatt certificate (like the Chase or Brand Explorer certs) to pay for it?
