Hyatt adding 1,000 Gold Passport points as Diamond amenity option at international properties!

While it hasn’t been officially announced yet, per this FlyerTalk thread it appears as if Hyatt is now offering 1,000 Gold Passport points as a Diamond amenity option at international properties. Up until now you’ve automatically received the food and beverage welcome amenity at international Hyatt properties, while at US properties you had the choice between the points or the amenity.

This has always been a frustrating policy, so it’s nice to see them finally change it.

Now, at the more generous properties I may still choose the food and beverage amenity over the 1,000 points. For example, this was my Diamond welcome amenity at the Park Hyatt Saadiyat Island:

Conversely, at the Hyatt Regnecy Mainz, this was the extent of the food and beverage amenity:

I’ll let you guys guess at which property I’d take the 1,000 points. ­čśë

  1. Its quite frustrating how hotels benefits can be so disparate!!!same with IHG while you earn point for each $ spent in intercontinental properties in US
    you just get 2000 around IC worldwide properties as if the money we are paying have less value!!!i like hoteks description fir fruits!!!it can be a propper basket if fruit as it can be 3 apples as i experienced fir the kadt 7 years at intercontinental park lane ending up mentioning on my profile more fruit.

  2. By far the most disappointing amenity ever was 6 apricots at the GH Istanbul. They were just like the apricots which were available from 6 am to 10 pm in the lounge, but I suppose someone went to the effort to deliver them to my room.

  3. I always get my 1000 Diamond amenity at international Hyatt Hotels…with a phone call to the Diamond desk …

  4. Hows this trip. In florida for spring break. last minute had to get to Shanghai for meeting on Tuesday. Left FLL at 6:00AM to Houston, Houston to LAX, Lax to Shanghai. Arrived Shanghai at 5:00PM on Monday Night. Stayed at the Marriot Honqgaio Monday and Tuesday night. Had two meetings on Tuesday. Flew home to Ord on Wed, loved the AA Business Class lie flat seat

  5. At the Hyatt Regency Kyoto they are giving me the option to choose my amenity. I really appreciate this since we don’t drink alcohol so the wine is useless.
