Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced a new loyalty alliance with Joie de Vivre Hotels, the company revealed today, joining three other new brands.
World of Hyatt members will be able to earn and redeem points and enjoy in-hotel benefits at 14 participating Joie de Vivre boutique hotels (Galleria Park, Hotel Carlton, Hotel Vitale, and The Marker hotels are excluded) located throughout the U.S., for stays starting May 15, 2019.
The continued program expansion quickly follows the recent addition of Thompson Hotels, including the Thompson Playa del Carmen and Thompson Beach House in Mexico, with Alila Hotels and Destination Hotels set to follow later this year. In total, more than 60 hotels will be added to World of Hyatt, across more than 20 new destinations.
Members can earn 2,000 bonus points for their first stay exploring each of these new brands, plus a free night when they try all four.
The announcement comes as Hyatt and Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) expanded their existing loyalty alliance to 200 of SLH's luxury boutique hotels in new locations across growth markets for Hyatt, including Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Italy, Kenya, Mozambique, New Zealand, Portugal, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, Turks and Caicos, and more.
This latest expansion has quadrupled the number of participating SLH properties since the alliance launched in November 2018, and its expansion is expected to continue throughout 2019.
Participating SLH properties will provide the following on-property benefits to all World of Hyatt members, regardless of status:
- Complimentary WiFi
- Daily complimentary continental breakfast for two guests
- Room upgrade (one category at check-in if available)
- Early check-in (noon, based upon availability at check-in)
- Late check-out (2:00pm, based upon availability at check-in)
