In August the group announced plans to enable members of its World of Hyatt loyalty program to earn and redeem points at over 50 Small Luxury Hotels properties, with a targeted launch date of the end of 2018.
And Hyatt has now confirmed that the partnership will become active for stays from December 6.
World of Hyatt members will earn five base points for every US$1 spent from this date, and can redeem points against stays at SLH properties.
The terms and conditions of the partnership notes that “at some Participating SLH Properties, standard-room inventory available for Free Night Awards may be limited, but there are no black-out dates at Participating SLH Properties”.
Commenting at the time of the launch of the partnership, Filip Boyen, CEO of SLH said:
“We are constantly looking for ways to add value for our many independently spirited hotels. This coming alliance with World of Hyatt does just that.
“Our work together will allow World of Hyatt members to enjoy loyalty benefits across a wider choice of small independent luxury hotels. For SLH, our hotels are our brand, and we look forward to expected increased occupancy with significant exposure to the World of Hyatt program’s more than 10 million members.”
