I just booked a two night stay at Hyatt’s flagship property in New York, the Park Hyatt New York! The Park Hyatt is a luxurious five star hotel located right in the heart of Manhattan, next to Central Park. I’ve never been to New York before (except the airports) and I can’t wait to go and explore, it is the last city I’d like to visit in the United States that I haven’t been to yet.

So… how much will this experience cost? Well, here are the daily weekend rates for the hotel:

The cheapest room is the Park Deluxe King which costs $975 USD per night, without taxes! And the total cost with taxes for two nights is…

$2244.62 USD TWO THOUSAND DOLLARS! Crazy!!!

Now… how much did I pay? Zero. I didn’t pay a cent for this stay, nada, nothing. How? Through the Chase Hyatt Credit Card. The sign up bonus on the card are two free nights at any Hyatt worldwide after spending $1k USD. Well, I paid my taxes with the card… and for paying my taxes I got two free nights at a five star hotel that costs a thousand dollars a night. Aren’t credit cards just amazing?! You can also redeem 30k Hyatt Gold Passport points per night, so essentially since this is a Category 7 hotel, the sign up bonus on the card is 60k Hyatt points in the form of free nights.

The other category 7 Hyatt hotels are:

  • Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa
  • Park Hyatt Sydney
  • Park Hyatt Tokyo
  • Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa
  • Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme
  • Park Hyatt Milan
  • Park Hyatt Zurich

Originally I was going to redeem my two free Hyatt nights in the Maldives but getting there is a pain, I still have time to cancel this reservation if I need to and perhaps still use my two free nights in the Maldives but I don’t know… If anyone has advice on what I should do, please let me know. For now, I can’t wait to visit New York!
