A few weeks ago, Hyatt launched Work From Hyatt. This is a special program that – I thought – charged higher rates for stays of at least seven nights which, on the face of it, doesn’t sound like a deal at all.
However, the packages include several additional perks and benefits which might make it worth the additional investment, especially now that Hyatt has launched new promotions offering at least triple points on paid stays and double elite nights.
Even better, it turns out that the Work From Hyatt program doesn’t necessarily cost more. In fact, you could potentially save hundreds of dollars by booking this special rate even before taking into account the value you receive from the package benefits.
Here’s more about how the Work From Hyatt program works.
- Book a stay of 7+ nights at participating properties using rate code WFHYAT to access Work From Hyatt rates and benefits.

The value you can get with these Work From Hyatt packages can vary greatly by property. That’s because not only will the rates vary, but the package of benefits and perks is different from property to property too.
When Greg had looked at a couple of eligible hotels in the past with this rate, he hadn’t seen anything particularly noteworthy. That might well have been due to the particular properties he’d checked though because there’s definitely some value to be had out there.
Reader Mark put these rates back on our radar after emailing us with the following details of a reservation he’d made:
I enjoyed the Hyatt discussion on the latest podcast and wanted to share a few thoughts:
The Work from Hyatt rate has some really good opportunities…I think you undersold the advantages. I just booked 10 days down in Miami(at the Confidante) during November and got an extra room, waived resort fees, waived parking fees and $25 per night in food and beverage. The value of the resort fees and parking is almost $85 per night(as I do not have high status) and I am paying $180 per night(for 2 rooms). When you add the newest promotion this is going to be a big win!
The Confidante isn’t the only property offering some value though. When checking the options for the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina in Maryland, I was surprised by how low the Work From Hyatt rate was compared to other rates.
As you can see, the Work From Hyatt rate is the cheapest of all the Hyatt-specific rates by at least $19 per night. You can get the same rate if you have AAA membership, but that’s not something everyone has, plus…
