It might have started slow, but World of Hyatt is evolving into an exciting program. Their latest partnership with SLH Group or Small Luxury Hotels of the World gives Hyatt members access to over 550 SLH properties.
SLH is a collection of hand-picked and vetted boutique hotels across the world. And it’s a pretty good collection. And now with Hyatt partnership, earning and redeeming awards is also a great option.
What do you get?
- 5 Base Points per eligible $1 USD spent
- Complimentary continental breakfast for two
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Early check-in 12:00pm (based on availability at check-in)
- Late check-out 2:00pm (based on availability at check-in)
