When you book a hotel at the Hyatt website, you fill in the basic information. You can also add special codes, such as Government, or Senior or AAA, which may or may not change the price. You can also add corporate or group codes that you qualify for. Some of these codes are just shortcuts. For example, 51440 is the code if you wish to book a points and cash stay.
What is 54749????
Curiously, I somehow came across the code 54749. It shows ridiculously low rates for some hotels, but when you click on any of the individual hotels listed, a different rate shows up. For example, this is a search for a hotel in Scottsdale, AZ for March 1st to March 2nd using the code 54749.
This leads me to think that 54749 might be an internal code, but what the heck is it?
One blog, Tokyo Hyatt Fan, in a post written in 2014, states only that this 54749 is “the group/corporate code for a points reservation night” but does not elaborate further. I’ve checked google and flyertalk and all the other usual suspects but found no further guidance.
My best guess, though I’m certainly not positive, is that 54749 represents the rate the hotel is paid when a guest books a points or an award stay.
I’m continuing to research this and will share more when I know more.
