Hotels

Not only can you use your 90K points for flights, but you can also use them for hotel stays. You can transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards points to three hotel partners.

Chase Hotel Transfer Partners

  • Hyatt
  • IHG
  • Marriott

All Chase Ultimate Rewards points transfer at a 1:1 ratio so one Chase UR equals one World of Hyatt point. Hyatt has a low award chart, rooms start at just 3.5K points a night and go up to 45K points a night. IHG and Marriott on the other hand don’t have award charts but use dynamic pricing where the cost in points is tied to the cash rate. Often, they charge more points than Hyatt for a similar caliber hotel.

Because of this, we recommend sticking to Hyatt when it comes to transferring your Chase Ultimate Rewards points to hotel partners. The only time I would transfer points to IHG or Marriott would be to top off my account if I am just short on points so that I can book my trip or extend my stay. Here are some ideas of how to use 90K Ultimate Rewards for hotels:

 

Stay 3-4 Nights at a Hyatt All-Inclusive

With your 90k Chase Ultimate Rewards points you can stay at one of the many all-inclusive Hyatt Resorts throughout Mexico and the Caribbean. Ziva is their family-friendly option and Zilara is adults-only. Here is the cost per night at each location:

  • Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta-20K points
  • Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos-20K points
  • Hyatt Ziva Cancun-25K points
  • Hyatt Zilara Cancun-25K points
  • Hyatt Ziva Riviera Cancun- 25K points
  • Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana- 25K points
  • Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana- 25K points
  • Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall- 25K points
  • Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall- 25K points

The prices above are for two guests, additional guests (age 3 and up) will cost you 10K points per night at the Puerto Rico and Los Cabos locations and 12.5K points per night at the other locations. Three to four nights at an all-inclusive resort with just one welcome bonus is incredible!

Hyatt recently partnered with Dreams and Secrets resorts. Some of these resorts charge just 12,000 points a night! You could get 7 nights with those 90,000 Ultimate Rewards!

Three Nights at a 5 Star Resort in Kauai

For 25K points a night you can stay at the Grand Hyatt Kauai. This resort is absolutely beautiful! This was the first hotel Alex ever travel hacked and it set the bar high!

6 Nights at the Hyatt Regency Paris Ètoile

At just 15K points a night you can stay for 6 nights at the Hyatt Regency Paris Ètoile. This skyscraper hotel offers stunning views of the city! We really enjoyed our recent stay there when we were in Paris

 

Enjoy these stunning Paris views!

 

2-3 Nights at the Park Hyatt Paris Vendome

This is a bucket list stay for sure. The Park Hyatt Paris is incredible per Jess’ review of it!  It is still on my list of hotels to visit! Being able to stay in pure luxury with one signup bonus is something that I am always looking for!

18 Nights at a Category 1 Hyatt

Eighteen! That is a lot of nights! Now before you go and assume that category 1 means this is a junk hotel….let me assure you, it does not! Alex has stayed at many Hyatt category 1 hotels and they have all been really nice! When her kids travel for sports, they take a road trip, or just need a nice, clean place and aren’t needing the whole resort experience, they always stay at Hyatt Place hotels! They are our favorite family hotel.

She gets two queen beds, a pull-out sofa bed, and a free breakfast. Many of the ones she has stayed at have been brand new as well and in really great locations. She is lucky to live near a lot of really great Hyatt Place hotels that start at just 3.5K points a night for off-peak dates. If you’re able to find off-peak availability, that’s even more than 18 nights! Last year she took her son to stay overnight at a category 1 Hyatt Place for his birthday. He loved it!

 

We love Hyatt Place hotels!
