20 new Hyatt hotels where you can get 500 extra points per night

Editor’s note: This is a recurring post, regularly updated with new information and offers.

I stayed at the Hyatt House Johannesburg Sandton in South Africa shortly after it opened. When I checked my account activity after my stay, I noticed an “opening bonus” of 2,000 points. Then, I remembered that Hyatt offers 500 bonus points per night on qualifying stays at new hotels.

I unknowingly received the benefit since Hyatt doesn’t require members to register for this promotion. Perhaps you, too, have forgotten about this promotion or never knew about it. In either case, here’s what you should know about this World of Hyatt promotion, including the newest properties where you can earn 500 bonus points per night.

How to earn 500 bonus Hyatt points per night

This promotion is simple: World of Hyatt members receive 500 bonus points per night for qualifying stays at select hotels new to the Hyatt portfolio. You must stay within a set time frame to earn the bonus points, typically in the first few months after the hotel opens. Specifically, you’ll only earn bonus points if your checkout date is during the offer period for your hotel.

To get the bonus points, you must provide your World of Hyatt number when you check in. You must also pay an eligible rate or redeem a free night award (including redeeming World of Hyatt points). You’ll only earn bonus points for one room per night.

The terms of this promotion note that it may take three to four weeks for the bonus points to appear in your account. In practice, though, Hyatt typically posts the new hotel bonus simultaneously with the other points for your stay.

The 500 Hyatt points you’ll get per night when booking an eligible rate or free night are worth about $8.50, based on TPG’s valuations. So, this promotion may be the tiebreaker when considering where to stay the next time you travel to a location with a new Hyatt hotel.

Bottom line

On top of earning 500 extra points per night, staying at a new Hyatt hotel can also be fun since you’ll often get to stay in a room with new furnishings. However, new hotels may still be working through some issues, and it’s possible that not everything on-site will be completely functional.

The current list includes nine Hyatt Category 1 hotels, four Category 2 hotels and one Category B all-inclusive resort. So, if you want to redeem World of Hyatt points for your stay, you can find many low-category options on the current list of new hotels.
