The coveted Hyatt Globalist status is once again within reach. Thanks to Elery, one of my friends and member of my group – Daddy Travels Miles and Points on Facebook, he shared screen shots of this new fast track promo to become Hyatt Globalist. And all throughout the day, so many great posts galore from AwardWallet, MilesTalk, FrequentMiler, Travel on Points.
Being a Hyatt Globalist has changed the way we view hotel perks and benefits. Since 2021, I guess you could say that we have officially waved the Team Hyatt Flag.
This was a recap of how we earned our Globalist status in 2021. The traditional way to earn Globalist status is by having 60 qualifying nights during the year. 60???? That’s a lot of nights. Not everyone has the opportunity to stay at Hyatt hotels for 60 nights. This was the reason why we took advantage of the 2021 challenge and earned our Globalist status in as little as 15 nights.
What’s so special about being a Hyatt Globalist
To those not so familiar with this status, it’s the creme de la creme of status with Hyatt:
- Upgrades to available vacant suites upon check-in. This is not guaranteed, but a sweet surprise.
- Free breakfast or club access at all Hyatt hotels. There are Hyatt hotels that charge up $50 for breakfast, so the benefit and its savings could add up.
- Say goodbye to parking fees. I know of some Hyatts that charge $20+ fees per day.
- Say goodbye to resort fees – another big plus in my books. Some of the Las Vegas Hyatt properties (or casinos) have a great deal per night, but what kills it for me is the additional resort fees. We also frequently visit Hawaii, and many non-Hyatt properties charge resort fees. But as a Globalist, when you book on points or award night, those fees are waived.
- Late checkout (4pm) – I love this option. There have been many stays where a late checkout in the afternoon could really help us with our trips
- Earn a 30% bonus on your hotel stays. So a 12,000 points stay at a Hyatt property, this gives you a bonus of 3,600 points.
- Guest of Honor privileges – you can sponsor or book for someone else, doesn’t have to be a household member or a relative. This is a great way of sharing with them your Hyatt benefits. These members could simply do a points transfer to you, and you book on their behalf, and they enjoy the Globalist benefit.
The list is long. For a complete list of Globalist benefits, click here.
Once we reached Globalist status in Feb 2021, you better believe that we took advantage of the Globalist benefits. In 2021 alone, we stayed in 25 different Hyatt properties.
How to become Hyatt Globalist through 2025

Anyone can join and sign up to be a BILT Rewards member. You do not need to have a BILT credit card to do this. You have an opportunity to sign up for this new way to fast track to Globalist in 20 qualifying nights vs. the traditional way of 60 qualifying nights. 20 nights? Yes, that’s more manageable….attainable. But you have do the following.
