Hyatt Award Chart Changes 2024


Hyatt has announced their award chart changes for 2024. Before we get into some of the not-so-good news, here’s the GREAT news—the Hyatt award chart is still around. Hyatt is our favorite brand because of the oversized value it offers, and the award chart is a huge part of that.

There has been some speculation about Hyatt getting rid of their award chart and moving to dynamic pricing, but this announcement seems to indicate otherwise. So while some fantastic properties may cost more soon, the fact that the award chart is still around is really good news.


The Details

  • How many properties do these changes impact?
    • 183 (137 hotels are moving up to a higher category and 46 are moving down to a lower category)
  • When will the changes take effect?
    • March 26, 2024
  • What if I make a reservation before March 26?
    • You will lock in the current rate
  • What if I already have a stay booked at a hotel that’s moving down a category?
    • You’ll receive an automatic refund after March 26
  • What if I make changes to a reservation with the current rates?
    • Any changes made will result in being charged the new (higher) rate


The off-peak, standard, and peak point values for each category are not changing. They remain as listed below:

Bottom Line

You can view the full list of properties changing categories HERE. Devaluations are never fun, but this is why we earn and burn! And honestly, it could be much worse. We still have a Hyatt award chart, and for that we’re grateful. Will you be booking any stays at these properties before the changes go into effect? Let us know in the comments.

    Just booked Andaz Papagayo for Spring break next year. Hope it works out that we can actually go. Last year I booked Hyatt Centric Key West before the changes took effect and we FINALLY get to go in a few weeks. That was one of my first ever redemptions so I’m excited about it.

    As a Californian it’s interesting to see a lot of properties moving into the Cat 4 (free night cert) space. And mostly I’m excited to see no change for Kauai as that’s my target vacation for 2025!

    Interesting to see that Hyatt Fisherman’s Warf in San Francisco will now be a cat 4. I think that’ll make it the only Cat 4 hotel in SF. As a local, not exactly the place I’d be most excited about, but you can’t deny that’s a central location for a San Francisco vacation.
