Note: Our process for getting the values on the right most column in the table: We counted 360 days ahead from the date we calculated. We divided 360 days into durations with 15 days long (24 durations in total) and randomly picked up one day in the duration to represent the avg price for the whole duration. Finally we got the average price for all durations. We wouldn’t count if a hotel is not available on a specific date.
We list the top 20 expensive hotels above, however, we don’t mean these are the only good deals. If you plan a trip solely because the Hyatt hotel is expensive, you may end up paying much more on other expenses. We strongly suggest you plan your trip ahead before applying for the card to make sure you can make use of the sign-up bonus. If there are no top Hyatt hotels at all in your destination, you should probably apply for the card at a later time.
The chart below tells us clearly, in order to avoid “wasting” the value of the free night, how much the free night should be worth.
In the above chart, the vertical axis is the hotel rate and the horizontal axis is the hotel ranking. If the rate for one night is over $500, it’s a top 20 hotel from a price perspective. If the rate is over $300, that’s around top 80, which means it’s more expensive than almost 90% of Hyatt hotels. That’s why our blog set the estimated free night value without category restrictions at about $300. If the rate of your stay is more than $300, it’s okay to use the free night . If it’s not, you should consider using some other ways to book and apply for the card later when you are targeting to stay a suitable hotel.

Similarly, this top 20 charts is just a reference as well. Other hotels can also be considered valuable to stay. Actually if the rate is over the annual fee of $75, you are getting good value. There are way too many hotels if you simply want to meet that requirement. 95% Hyatt hotels rate are more expensive than $75, so it’s hard to find a rate less than annal fee. The next chart shows the distribution of category 1~4 Hyatt hotels:
Hope everyone is able to make the best use of their free nights!
