I give props where props are due and Hyatt is doing a great job introducing creative ways to engage consumers.
This morning I received an email with the title “Take Your Work On A Vacation.” Immediately, I thought to myself “why would I want to do that?” Call me naïve but I opened it because I was curious as to how they were going to convince me to take my work on vacation.
Well, if anything, they are creative and it’s worth considering for a number of reasons. Let’s take a look at the details.
WORK FROM HYATT
The truth is, many people are working from home and have been working from home for months. Sometimes, you just need a change of scenery. So Hyatt has introduced “WFH Rates.” No…not “work from home rates” but “Work From Hyatt Rates.”
These package rates are being offered at select properties in the US, Mexico, and the Caribbean. And yes, at time of publication, Mexico and a handful of Caribbean islands are allowing Americans to visit.
The basic framework is:
- You have to stay a minimum of seven nights to take advantage of these rates and the rates start at $139/night (though vary depending on property)
- The rates are valid for stays between 25 August 2020 – 31 March 2021
- You have to enter the offer code WFHYAT during booking
Interestingly, you can also redeem World of Hyatt points for these rates by calling Hyatt 1-866-886-5053, though they are vague about how many points it costs. If you call and determine how many points, feel free to drop a comment below.
SO I PAY $139+ FOR A HOTEL ROOM…THAT’S IT?
If you just paid $139 for a hotel room, that wouldn’t be much of a promotion would it? So there are some perks to this offer including:
- Standard guestroom or suite accommodations with the option to upgrade
- Workspace options that may include a suite living room, a connecting room or a private meeting room
- Daily food and beverage credit
- Complimentary or discounted laundry services
- Complimentary self or valet parking
- Complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi internet access
- Housekeeping services that reflect guest preferences on frequency and time of day
- Waived resort fees
- Standard World of Hyatt in-hotel benefits including earning points and having nights count toward elite-tier status.
- Ability to use World of Hyatt points to redeem for a Work from Hyatt package
Let’s discuss the complimentary laundry service and housekeeping. For some (including myself), that’s worth the $139 right there. 😉
Some properties offer additional perks. For example, the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Complimentary pool cabana.

I’m glad to see Hyatt thinking outside the box as this promotion is creative. Similar to many offers, it may not be ideal for everyone to pay ~$700+ for a week in a hotel. However, if you’re going stir crazy, miss the experience of being in a hotel near the mountains or the beach, want a few perks, and/or need a change of scenery, I can very much see the appeal.
I would recommend comparing the price of a standard stay vs. the promotion and determining if the cost difference is worth the perks.
Are you planning to take advantage of this promotion?
