Hyatt is beefing up its presence in major European cities, and a new property has arrived in Bordeaux, France.

Here’s what you need to know!

FirstName Bordeaux Now Open for Guests

FirstName Bordeaux is the first hotel in France to join JdV by Hyatt, a collection of independent hotels. The relatively new FirstName brand focuses on “sustainability for all” — for guests, locals, and the environment.

The hotel offers nearly 150 rooms and suites. Guests have their pick of several room choices, with names such as Cocoon, Canopée, Carat, Collector Suites, and FirstRoom. Pets weighing up to 22 kg (~44 lbs) are allowed for a fee of 25 euros (~$27) per night.

Amenities include a 2-story, 24-hour gym and a speakeasy. The hotel also boasts a restaurant and bar, Le Bada, featuring wine and dishes from Bordeaux’s famed wine region.

To celebrate the opening, the hotel has several package deals on room rates, including perks such as a complimentary yoga session or wine tasting. You can take a look at the property and book directly at its website.

How To Book

Like many World of Hyatt hotels in Europe, the new FirstName Bordeaux is competitively priced if you plan to use points. As a Category 5 hotel, standard award nights range from 17,000 points per night during off-peak dates to 23,000 points per night for peak dates.

If you want to book this property (or any other Hyatt property), make sure you have enough points to do so.

If you have a card that earns Chase Ultimate Rewards points or Bilt Rewards points, you can transfer them to World of Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio.

Hyatt also has 2 branded credit cards and here are their respective welcome offers:

  • The World of Hyatt Credit Card ($95 annual fee): Earn 35,000 points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in your first 3 months. Plus, up to 30,000 additional points by earning 2x in the first 6 months on purchases that normally earn 1x, on up to $15,000 spent.
  • : Earn 60,000 points after you spend $5,000 on purchases in your first 3 months. Additionally, earn 15,000 points after you spend $12,000 in the first 6 months.

Hot Tip: Both cards offer complimentary World of Hyatt Discoverist status, which includes waived resort fees (on award nights), 2 p.m. checkout, and complimentary bottled water.

Final Thoughts

This is yet another big moment for Hyatt in Europe where the chain doesn’t have as significant of a presence as Hilton, IHG, or Marriott. However, that’s beginning to change. In recent days, Hyatt has announced new properties in Spain (a Grand Hyatt) and Türkiye (a Hyatt Regency), so it’s only a matter of time before we learn of other openings.
