How do I maximize my HGP Points value?

When redeeming HGP points, you can compare the rewards earn rate of different redemption options to see if you are getting the most of your points. To estimate the rewards earn rate, divide the standard rate of the hotel stay by the number of HGP points required to redeem one night. Let’s look at a few hotel stay redemption examples for a night near San Diego, California:

///This Hyatt Regency in the La Jolla Village is a 4.5-star upper upscale hotel brand. It has a nightly average of $325 USD, and requires 15,000 HGP points per night to redeem.  Let’s estimate the point-value of this redemption:

$325/15,000 = 0.0217, or 2.17 cents per point

Let’s look at another redemption option. This is the Andaz brand also located in San Diego; this is a 5-star luxury brand, with an average nightly rate of $299 and a redemption rate of 20,000 HGP points per night.

$299/20,000 = 0.01495, or 1.495 cents per point

Although the Andaz has a lower nightly rate as a higher-ranked hotel brand, its redemption value is lower than that of Hyatt Regency’s. You might consider booking the Hyatt Regency when redeeming with points, and the Andaz when not.

Here is another brand, the Hyatt Place, a 4-star upscale brand located in Vista-Carlsbad. The nightly rate is $164, and it only requires 8,000 points a night to redeem. Here’s this hotel’s earn-rate value:

$164/8,000 = 0.0205, or 2.05 cents per point

The Hyatt Place is not ranked as high as the Andaz, but what would be used to redeem 2 nights at the Andaz can redeem 5 nights at the Hyatt Place. Paying for 2 nights at the Andaz would have been roughly $600, while 5 nights in Hyatt Place would have been $820; both reward redemptions cost 40,000 HGP points. In general, for Hyatt hotel brands, you want to aim for point values above 2 cents per point in order to maximize your earning-rate.

How do I redeem HGP points for airline miles?

With Hyatt Gold Passport, you receive 1 mile for every 2.5 HGP point you convert, beginning with a minimum of 5,000 points and increasing in increments of 1,250. When you convert at least 50,000 HGP points, you also earn 5,000 Bonus Miles. Currently, you cannot redeem HGP points directly for flight tickets. Convert your points here.

Other ways to redeem HGP points

Car Rental

Apart from airlines miles, you can also redeem points for car rental awards. Car Rental Awards can be redeemed at participating Avis car rental locations. A free intermediate-size car for one day is only 6,000 points a day! You can reserve by calling 1-800-228-3360. You should book in advance and allow 4-6 weeks for the Award to arrive by mail.

Dining, Spa, and More

You can redeem HGP points at participating restaurants and spas, even when you’re not staying at a Hyatt hotel. You can also redeem your points during check-out at participating Hyatt hotels for dining and spa experiences, in-room movies, parking, transportation, and more.
