Last month, Ben at One Mile At A Time wrote a post about his choices for the best uses of your Chase Hyatt Credit Card anniversary free night certificates. But I think he left out two great choices in the states and one of them is a hotel I’ll be using mine at this year. As a reminder, each year Hyatt gives its cardholders an anniversary free night certificate. It can be used at any Hyatt category 1-4 hotel. There are some exclusions, but there are still plenty of awesome choices all over the world. He did list the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, which is one of my favorite hotels in Vancouver, BC.
But he didn’t show any love to my favorite local Hyatt, the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine. Depending on the time of year and whether or not they have corporate functions going on, rates can be $400+ a night. Ouch! Whenever I pay cash for a hotel stay, I always use Pruvo to monitor for price drops.
And there are plenty of nights that you can’t get rooms on points or with points and cash. It’s a fabulous property in a great location. The lounge is exceptional and it’s a great hotel for families with kids. It’s all about their amazing pool!
But I digress! I’ll be using my Chase Hyatt Credit Card anniversary free night certificate at the Hyatt Regency Boston Harbor. I’ve stayed here before and like this hotel a lot. Rates can top $300 a night. If you need a hotel near the Boston Logan International Airport, it’s right there. But even when I play tourist in Boston, a city I totally enjoy, I’m partial to being out of the city center a bit and being by the water. I’ve written an in-depth review of this hotel, so I won’t go into many of the details here, but if you’ll be in Boston and have a Hyatt anniversary free night certificate available, please consider this hotel.
Are you using your Chase Hyatt Credit Card anniversary free night certificate at any of the hotels I’ve mentioned? If not, where are you using your anniversary free night certificate this year? Let me know in the comments.
