Hyatt and Small Luxury Hotels of the World Announce Strategic Loyalty Alliance

As a luxury travel-stay option, Hyatt has every reason to keep its brand profile and its reputation high, while never resting on its laurels and always seeking new ways to satisfy its world-class clientele. The gold class of Hyatt’s frequent world travelers are its World of Hyatt Members, who already receive exclusive benefits, such as free nights at Hyatt Hotels.

With the recently completed merger of SPG and Marriott, along with the even more recent NH Hotel backoff, Hyatt is feeling a bit left out in the cold and need to bolster their catalog of hotels lest they lose more guests who value loyalty perks to the megachain that is Marriott/SPG.

Moreover, loyal travelers attracted to Hyatt stay all over the world and have expressed their desire to experience the luxury and privileges of their World of Hyatt membership status in other localities than those currently having a designated Hyatt Hotel. Hyatt fully understands and appreciates the needs of its guests and has just upped the staying clout of its World of Hyatt members by implementing a strategic alliance with Small Luxury Hotels of the World, a luxury chain of independently owned distinct, high-end hotels. This alliance considerably widens the staying options of World of Hyatt members from about 700 options to about 1200. Hyatt’s 10 million+ members will prove a boon for the small luxury chain. Meanwhile, the members of Hyatt’s exclusive World of Hyatt will have the option of staying at one of the singular boutique Small Luxury Hotels of the World, located in more than 80 countries, while continuing to redeem their Hyatt points.

Key Takeaways:

  • Small Luxury Hotels of the World has approximately 500 distinct boutique hotels in its chain of independently owned hotels.
  • The entirely distinct and high-end hotels are located in eighty different countries around the world.
  • The new strategic alliance with Hyatt should create higher occupancy rates to the chain’s hotels due to Hyatt’s ten-million+ members being allowed to use the chain’s hotels and redeem their points.
  • Members should be able to earn and redeem World of Hyatt points at Small Luxury Hotels of the World by the end of 2018.
