No award nights available at that Hyatt you’re looking to book in to? Tired of checking every day (or multiple times daily) to see if anything has changed? Now there’s a tool which can help you with that. Introducing the Hyatt Award Alerts from Wandering Aramean Travel Tools. The concept is pretty simple and similar to the various other award alerts I’ve built, though there are a few differences worth noting.
Like the other alerts you simply choose where and when you’re hoping to see an award become available. Unlike the others, however, this search requires choosing a specific hotel rather than anything near an airport. So, fill in your details, create the alert and let it go.
Also of note is that the hotel name search is based on the name Hyatt has given the property, not its address. Typing in Las Vegas will only show you the Hyatt Place there; if you want any of the partner properties (e.g. Aria, Vdara, etc.) you need to type in that name, not just Vegas. On the plus side, there is an option to select the hotel from a map rather than typing in the name:
Just click on a hotel and it should populate the search box at the top of the page.
Once you’ve added the alerts you’ll have a list you can manage which looks a lot like this one:
Regular members on the site can have up to 5 active alerts at any given time; First Class members can have up to 50.
And, should the alert trigger you’ll receive an email with the details.
Hyatt offers multiple different award types at some properties at different price points so the alert will include the details of both the room description and the points required to reserve a night there. The alret details are also visible on the site in the Search History page.
There are 598 hotels currently supported by the tool, which I believe covers every Gold Passport property in the Hyatt system. If there’s one you see missing please let me know and I’ll get it added. I also think I built it so it can self-update as new properties are added, though I suppose we’ll need to wait for that to happen before I can tell if it is working.
Like most of the tools I’m sure there are some bugs in this one. I’ve tested it a bit and even had a few others help but there is no doubt a few slipped through. Drop me a line if you see something amiss.
