If you are visiting New York City (or want to visit New York City), I found a great points and cash rate at a prominent World of Hyatt Hotel in Manhattan. Is it the Park Hyatt or Andaz? No, but it is the Hyatt Herald Square, a category 5 World of Hyatt hotel, centrally located on West 31st Street.
The rate at this hotel is usually in the mid $200s per night and frequently over $300. One day, I was researching rates in NYC for various dates and discovered something. On the scattered dates when points and cash is available, this is what it looks like:
Yes, through the end of the calendar, when the points and cash rate is available at the Hyatt Herald Square, it is always 10,000 points plus $60. This is regardless of what the Standard Rate is. There is also the evil destination fee of $22.95 per night, which is waived if you are a World of Hyatt Globalist member.
Is this a glitch or a marketing maneuver? I don’t know. But I would recommend booking now, because the rate can change at any time.
Let’s have a meetup in NYC!
Have a great Saturday!
