World of Hyatt Globalist for 20 nights only!

Ever since the Hyatt Gold Passport has morphed into the World of Hyatt, one of the most confusing aspects has been about how to get back Diamond Globalist status. Hyatt moved the goalpost from 25 stays/50 nights to 60 nights or 100K base points per annum, thus completely eliminating the option to qualify on 25 one night stays.

However, if you work with certain companies, you may still be in luck to get your status to Globalist quickly. Hyatt is offering Elite Tier & Fast Track offers for many corporates.
