Hyatt has launched an offer to try and get guests in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, to book stays of at least 29 nights. These ‘Great Relocate Packages’ sound a bit mad in the current situation – but the more I think about it, the more sense they make.
The crucial point is that you can book dates all the way up until the end of this year. Also, while a deposit for 29 nights is required, bookings made under this offer may be cancelled at no charge up to 72 hours before your scheduled arrival.
Hyatt Great Relocate Packages include:
- Housekeeping twice a week
- Complimentary gym access
- Airport or train station pickup
- Up to three hours of complimentary board meeting room usage per month
- IT concierge to help smooth out any tech issues
- 25% off food & beverage**
- 25% off laundry services
- For World of Hyatt members, standard in-hotel benefits including earning points and having nights count toward elite-tier status.
What are the prices like?
Excellent – some of these rates are genuinely remarkable. We will take a look at some examples of the headline rates here, and I will explain in an article tomorrow why the value could well work out even better than it first looks…
For the following examples, I have selected dates between June-September 2021 – you might be able to find even better rates at other times of the year.
Hyatt Regency – The Churchill: £103 per night (lowest alternative rate is £273)
Andaz London Liverpool Street: £93 per night (lowest alternative rate is £204)
Great Scotland Yard Hotel: £103 per night (lowest alternative rate is £270)
Hotel Du Louvre: 180 Euros per night (lowest alternative price is 260 Euros for another long stay rate, but standard prices are more like 400+)
Hyatt Regency Etoile: 115 Euros per night (lowest alternative rate is 168 Euros)
Park Hyatt Vienna: 140 Euros per night (lowest alternative rate is 384 Euros)
Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere: 100 Euros per night (lowest alternative rate is 230 Euros)
Park Hyatt Hamburg: 137 Euros per night (lowest alternative rate is 193 Euros)
Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht: 101 Euros per night (lowest alternative rate is 368 Euros. That’s a 72.5% discount!)
Hyatt Regency Amsterdam: 101 Euros per night (lowest alternative rate is 216 Euros)
Note that different room types are sometimes available with the discount too. For example, you could book an ‘Andaz Large Suite’ in Amsterdam for 251 Euros per night rather than ~1000 Euros per night.
When I consider the sort of travel that is likely to be possible/popular later this year, these long stays tick a lot of boxes. Many people are already desperate for a change of scene, and ‘work-from-home’ is now so established in some industries that there are a lot more people with flexibility regarding their location. Travel restrictions of some kind are still likely to be in place, so you might not want to venture too far, and certainly don’t want to book anything that involves a lot of flights or crossing borders.
Airbnb and other self-catering options might be a first choice, but luxury accommodation in major cities can be extremely expensive.
If you have ever idly wondered about spending a Summer in Paris, or wanted to get to know great cities like Amsterdam or London better, this could be an incredible opportunity to actually make it happen.
I’ll share some thoughts tomorrow about how you could get even more value from these Great Relocate Packages.
