DC Hyatt bonus & Diamond challenge

A good deal becomes a great deal when it can be stacked with other good deal and here is one for DC visitors. Combining the Diamond Status match program with DC bonus stay points will award you 5,000 extra Hyatt Gold Points.

Stay two nights at the  Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill from 08/24 – 08/26. Total price will be $170 for two nights

You will get

    • 2,000 points from the Diamond Status Challenge
    • 2,000 from the DC bonus stay
    • 1,000 from the hotel amenity when you decide to get points instead of the gift
    • 850 points from hotel stay (5 points/$ spend) + 30% bonus as a diamond = 1,100 points
    • Total = 6,100 Hyatt points = $120 (2 cent/point value)
Plus, you will get free breakfast (access to regency club), 4 PM check-out, and internet for the two days  and Hyatt is very likely to upgrade you to a suite. $120 + all of the Diamond benefits are very close to $170 in spending.


My search shows that most weekends in August and September have very low rates on the eight participating hotels, I found $99 per night for Grand Hyatt Washington (08/10-08/12 and 08/03 – 08/05). So when you are in DC in Aug and Sep/2012, try to take advantage of these points.

  1. Dude, your killing me! My daughter just asked about going to DC! Maybe we’ll go after we get back from our trip to Hong Kong next week (if United honors it). Thanks!!

    • Ha ha, I am going to Hong Kong in September as well if United extends their generosity. Hotels in DC are getting cheap in the next two months + the bonus points make it affordable.
