HELLO THOMPSON, WELL HELLO THOMPSON . . .
A few months ago, World of Hyatt announced that it had acquired Two Roads Hospitality (see, Hotel News: Hyatt Acquires Two Roads Hospitality, Including Joie de Vivre, Thompson and Other Hotel Brands!)
Since October, we have patiently waited to hear the next step. Today, Hyatt has officially announced the introduction of Thompson Hotels as the first of the Two Roads brand to join the World of Hyatt loyalty program for stays starting March 28, 2019.
There are eight participating Thompson Hotels located throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. These properties include Gild Hall and The Beekman in New York City; The Cape in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Thompson Chicago; Thompson Nashville; Thompson Seattle; Thompson Toronto; and Thompson Zihuatanejo on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. (Properties currently under development include Thompson Hollywood in California, Thompson D.C. in The Yards, Thompson South Beach, and Thompson San Antonio).
Thompson Hotels Categories
Here are the award chart for each of the eight Thompson Hotels:
HYATT MEMBERS WILL RECEIVE FULL BENEFITS AT THOMSON HOTELS
I was curious whether and what benefits Globalists and other World of Hyatt members will receive at Thompson hotels. In particular, would Globalists receive the full gamut of Hyatt benefits for stays at Thompson Hotels or would they receive diluted benefits, such as they receive for stays at SLH hotels?
I am happy to report the answer: Effective March 28, 2019, World of Hyatt members can earn and redeem points for their stays and enjoy full in-hotel benefits that they’re used to receiving at Hyatt hotels and resorts, at these eight participating Thompson Hotels properties when paying an Eligible Rate or redeeming a free night award.
So, Globalists will get their upgrades and 4pm checkouts and waiver of resort fees, etc.
It ALSO follows that World of Hyatt members will be able to use free night award certificates at the two Thompson category 4 hotels – one in Chicago and one in New York City.
ROLLING, ROLLING, ROLLING . . .
Here is the schedule for all four Two Roads hotel brands being added to World of Hyatt:
- Thompson Hotels (for stays starting March 28, 2019)
- Joie de Vivre Hotels (for stays starting May 15, 2019)
- Alila (coming soon)
- Destination Hotels (coming soon)
