Last Updated 2023-05-28 By R.Flowers III

How much are Hyatt points worth? On average, they are worth about 1.8 cents apiece meaning that 10,000 Hyatt points are worth about $180 in value towards free nights. This is the easiest value you can obtain with little to no research, but it doesn't take much additional work to get 2 cents or more in value out of Hyatt points.

Here are The Point Calculator's valuations for World of Hyatt points:

Hyatt Points Value
Redemption option Redemption value in cents
Award nights at Hyatt brand hotels 1.8 - 2.2
Award nights at MGM resorts 1.3 - 1.5
Exhale Spa 1.3 - 1.9
Lindblad Expeditions 1.6
Meeting credits 1.33
Dining, spa, and room charges 1 - 1.53
Car rentals 1

Award night redemptions: 1.8 to 2.2 cents per point.

Hyatt Points will have the best value when redeemed for free nights at Hyatt brand hotels. This will give you anywhere from 1.8 to 2.2 cents per point on average.

Hyatt Points can also be redeemed for free nights at all-inclusive resorts, Miraval resorts, and MGM Resorts International.

Hyatt brand hotels

Hyatt points can be used to book free nights at Hyatt hotels and resorts, Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) and MGM Rewards destinations.

Hyatt is one of the few hotel rewards programs that still uses an award chart. It is broken up by room type and then by off-peak, standard, and peak pricing.

It's not hard to get a minimum of 1.8 cents in value when booking award nights at Hyatt brand hotel. In fact, you'll typically find redemptions that go over 2 cents in value with little to no research.

What makes it even better is that when you're looking for award availability, Hyatt shows the cost in cash per night and the cost in points per night side-by-side. This makes it very easy to calculate the value of Hyatt points and find out which redemptions offer exceptional value.

As an example, let's look at the first 10 Hyatt hotels in the Atlanta, Georgia area during early fall.

Hyatt makes it easy to calculate the value of your points.

The "worse" redemption value was the Grand Hyatt ATL/Buckhead at 2.16 cents per point while the best value was the Hyatt Regency at 3.56 cents per point. The average value of all 10 hotels came out to be 2.65 cents per point.

As you can see, all ten hotels offered more than 2 cents per point in value which is not uncommon.

All-inclusive resorts

Hyatt Points can be used to book award nights at all-inclusive resorts brands which includes:

  • Hyatt Zilara and Hyatt Ziva
  • Alua Hotels & Resorts
  • Breathless Resorts & Spas
  • Dreams Resorts & Spas
  • Secrets Resorts & Spas
  • Sunscape Resorts & Spas
  • Vivid Hotels & Resorts (coming soon)
  • ZoĂ«try Wellness & Spa Resorts

With all-inclusive hotels, everything is included in your stay. This includes lodging, food and restaurants on the resort, top shelf drinks, and most activities.

Stays booked at these resorts (as they begin to participate in the World of Hyatt program) using a all-inclusive award chart. As with the standard chart, it is broken up by room type and then by off-peak, standard, and peak pricing.

It also includes an extra section which details the amount of points per additional person staying in the room beyond double occupancy—up to 4 people per room.

Redeeming Hyatt Points for all-inclusive hotels will typically fall at or under 1.8 cents per point on average. Since food, drink, and activities are included, you'll actually be getting significantly more value than what's calculated.

Let's look at a few of the all-inclusive hotels in Cancun, Mexico.

Here are the values offered for each of the hotels listed above.

Hotel Point value (in cents)
Dreams Vista Cancun Golf & Spa 1.56
Breathless CancĂşn Soul Resort & Spa 1.74
Dreams Sands Cancun Resort & Spa 1.42
Hyatt Zilara Cancun 1.86

The worst value is 1.42 cents per point for Dreams Sands Cancun Resort & Spa. While this seems to be a "low" redemption, you have to factor in that you don't have to pay for food, drink, or activities.

If you ate 3 meals a day, had a couple of drinks in the evening with friends, and participated in an activity or two daily, you would probably spend close to $150 or more in a day.

Add that to the average price per night of the hotel and you're looking at a true total of $392 per night. That means you would be getting around 2.3 cents per point and not the calculated 1.42 cents each.

If you eat or drink even more and participate in a lot of activities (which would normally cost you money at a non-all-inclusive hotel), you would be raking in even more value.

Miraval resorts

Hyatt Points can be redeemed for stays at Miraval resorts. Awards nights booked at these resorts include luxury accommodations, a $175 resort credit per person, gourmet cuisine, freshly prepared snacks and beverages, and complimentary wellness activities, lectures, fitness classes and more.

Miraval resorts has their own award chart in which you can book a free night starting as low as 40,000 Hyatt Points.

The value you get out of Miraval Resorts will vary depending on if you're visiting a spa location during an off-peak, standard, or peak time.

For example, the Miraval Berkshires Resort and Spa will cost you 45,000 points per night in August with the cash rate being $1,149 points per night. This would give your points a value of 2.5 cents each (and even higher value if you factor in the $175 resort credit).

Points + Cash bookings

You can combine points and cash to book award nights at Hyatt hotels and resorts, MGM resorts destinations, and Miraval resorts. It will require 50% of the points required for a free night at 50% - 70% off the standard rate for the choose room type.

This will generally give you about the same value as standard bookings, but it's possible to get higher value with some Points + Cash redemptions. This will happen anytime you get more than 50% off the standard rate.

Room upgrades on paid nights

Hyatt Points can be used to upgrade your room on paid nights which can offer exceptional value depending on the hotel. You can estimate the value of the redemption based on the difference in cost between the standard rate and whichever room type you're trying to upgrade to.

Hyatt & MGM Resorts Destinations

As an example, lets breakdown the pricing for the Hyatt Regency Atlanta. We will look at the point values for booking a standard award, premium suite award, and upgrading a paid standard room booking to a premium suite.

Redemption Type Point value (in cents)
Standard Room at $184 or 8,000 points per night 2.3
Premium Suite at $544 or 16,000 points per night 3.4
Upgrade on paid stay from Standard to Premium which is a $360 difference for 9,000 points 4

If you were trying to book a Premium Suite, the best route would be booking a standard room for $184 and then using points to upgrade your room to the Premium Suite. This would give your points a whopping value of 4 cents each.

Of course, if you didn't want to pay anything out of pocket at all, the 3.4 cents per point for the Premium Suite is also fantastic value.

It really comes down to the personal preference of trying to maximize your point value versus trying to avoid paying cash at all.

Hyatt point transfers to airline partners: 0.4 to 1.2 cents per point.

Hyatt Points can be transferred to over 20 airline partners mostly at a 2.5:1 ratio meaning that every 2,500 Hyatt Points you transfer will give you 1,000 airline miles.

On top of that, Hyatt gives you an additional 5,000 airline miles for every 50,000 Hyatt Points you transfer. This will give you 25,000 airline miles total per 50,000-point block which brings the ratio to 2:1.

While Hyatt does offer an excellent transfer ratio, the drawback is that converting your points to airline miles will devalue your points. 2.5 Hyatt points are worth about 4.5 cents in value per point whereas 1 airline mile ranges between 1 and 2 cents per point depending on the airline and the fare class.

So you'll want to take that into consideration if you plan on transferring your Hyatt points to their airline partners.

Hyatt dining, spa, and room charges: 1 cent to 1.53 cents per point.

You can apply your Hyatt Points to spa and dining charges at Hyatt's around the world regardless of whether or not you're spending the night at a Hyatt. You can also apply your points to in-room movies, parking, transportation, and more when you're staying as a guest.

hyatt hotel charges redemptions

Redeeming your Hyatt Points to cover these type of charges will give your points a minimum value of 1 cent per point for a $10 credit up to 1.53 cents per point for a $1,000 credit. You can use your points during checkout to cover these types of charges.

Meetings & events: 1.33 cents per point.

If you plan on having a meeting or event at Hyatt, you can use your Hyatt Points to shave down the cost with a Meeting Credit. Meeting credits will give your Hyatt Points a value of 1.3 cents per point.

You can get anywhere from a $200 Meeting Credit for 15,000 Hyatt Points up to a $1,000 Meeting Credit for 75,000 Points.

Remember that hosting paid meetings/events with Hyatt will earn you Hyatt Points and credit towards Hyatt Elite Status.

Hyatt FIND experiences: point value varies.

Hyatt Points can be used to pay for various experiences with Hyatt's FIND Experiences program. Experiences offered by this program features a range of categories such as culinary, fitness, tours, and more.

hyatt find expriences

The value you get of this program will depend on the experience itself. Most of the experiences will have a cash value associated with them, but some are indeed priceless. So you'll have to figure out if an experience is worth your Hyatt Points or not.

When paying cash for experiences via Hyatt's FIND Experience, you'll earn a whopping 10 Hyatt base points per $1 spent making this a great way to push yourself towards Hyatt Elite Status & Hyatt Milestone Rewards.

Using points for Lindblad Expeditions: 1.6 cents per point.

Hyatt Points can be redeemed for expeditions with Lindblad Expeditions. These expeditions take you to various exciting and remote places such as Antarctica, Galápagos, the Arctic, and various (non-freezing) exotic destinations.

Booking these expeditions will also give you a $250 USD onboard credit per reservation.

These expeditions can be anywhere from a couple of days like your typical cruise up to a month or longer. Cash prices for these expeditions hover in the thousands of dollars and some in the tens of thousands of dollars.

In terms of redeeming Hyatt Points, you'll looking at redemptions ranging from 170,000 up to 7 million Hyatt Points (yeah you read that right).

Redeeming your Hyatt Points for Lindblad Expeditions will give your points a value of 1.6 cents each. If you're looking for ways to build up your Hyatt Points to these type of levels, you'll want to consider the Chase Ultimate Rewards Program since you can transfer your earned points directly to Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio.

When booking Lindblad Expeditions with cash, you'll earn your standard 5 base points per $1 spent along with any elite tier bonuses. Nights also count towards elite status which is great considering the length of some of their expeditions.

Redeeming points at Exhale spa: 1.3 cents to 1.9 cents per point.

Hyatt Points can be redeemed for boutique fitness classes and spa therapies with Exhale. You'll get 1.5 cents per point when redeeming your Hyatt Points for a fitness class.

The value you get when redeeming for a 60-minute massage or facial will vary as the prices range depending on the type of massage/facial and your location. The estimate range of value I got was from 1.3 cents to 1.9 cents in value which is not bad at all.

exhale spa hyatt

If you plan on earning or redeeming points with Exhale, I recommend that you link your World of Hyatt and Exhale accounts to make things easier.

Remember that you will earn 10 Base Points for every $1 spent at Exhale locations and for Exhale On Demand subscriptions purchased on exhalespa.com.

Renting cars with Avis: 1 cent per point.

Lastly, you can redeem your Hyatt Points for rentals with Avis. For 6,000 Hyatt Points per day, you can book an intermediate-size car. 6,000 Hyatt Points have an average value of $108.

Typically, rentals at Avis will not reach such a high price on a per-day rate unless you're booking during an extreme peak time.

Based on rental experience with Avis as well as looking through their website, intermediate vehicles hover around $50-$70 on average so you'll get close to 1 cent in value for this redemption which is pretty low.
