The Grand Hyatt Santiago is offering suites as cash and points redemptions, for the price of a regular room. This is available throughout the year but this deal is unlikely to last long.
Since these rooms should be cancellable up until the day before arrival, it’s worth making speculative bookings if you might have a need for a room (suite) in Santiago, Chile at some point over the next year.
A Grand Suite comes up as a bookable room type when searching for cash and points awards at this property.
Oddly cash and points rates are displaying in Google Chrome without detail on the points portion of the rate. And trying to book the room errors out.
But the cash and points rate comes up fully using Internet Explorer as my browser.
It is indeed bookable with Internet Explorer:
Here the ‘Grand Suite King’ which is ~ 871 square feet.
What’s more, suites at this property get club lounge access.
The requisite Hyatt points can be transferred instantly from Chase Ultimate Rewards if needed.
This isn’t the most expensive room I’ve seen at a Hyatt, but it’s still a good deal for a suite considering that the cancellable rate on many of the nights I checked is over $300.
I wouldn’t make non-refundable travel plans around these hotel reservations. Instead I’d wait several days to make sure the hotel plans to fully honor the special deal they’re offering to fill rooms at a time when South America travel is down substantially.
