How Does Hyatt Guest of Honor Benefit Work?
- Hyatt’s Guest of Honor benefit is only available on points or Hyatt Free Night Award that is earn either through Chase World of Hyatt Credit Card every year or other ways to earn Hyatt Free Night Award.
- Points or Hyatt Free Night Award has to come out of Globalist’s account, not the guest of honor’s account.

- The Guest of Honor does not have to be friends or family, it can be virtually anyone.
- Globalist member can stay in conjunction with the guest by booking a second room for the guest at the same Hyatt property, or the guest can simply stay without the presence of the Globalist member.
