Last month, Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) announced the end of its partnership with Hyatt and plans for a new partnership with Hilton. We now have more details about how and when SLH and Hyatt’s partnership will end — and how any future bookings may be affected.

Let’s jump right in.

Hyatt and Small Luxury Hotels Parting Ways in May

We now know that the Hyatt partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) will be ending on May 15, 2024.

It was first announced in February that SLH would be parting ways with Hyatt and forming a new partnership with Hilton Honors. However, at that time, we didn’t have many details about how or when the partnership with Hyatt would be ending.

The last day that World of Hyatt members can earn or use points at SLH properties is May 15, 2024. Nothing will change if your check-in date is on or before May 15, and you’ll still earn any points or elite night credits you were entitled to as part of the World of Hyatt program.

Reservations for SLH properties made through Hyatt, with a check-in date after May 15, will still be honored. However, Hyatt benefits, including free breakfast, points earning, and elite night credits, won’t apply.

If you need to change or cancel an SLH reservation on or before May 15, 2024, you can do so through Hyatt. For changes or cancellations after May 15, 2024, you’ll need to contact Small Luxury Hotels of the World.

The benefits of this partnership will last a little longer for anyone who has The World of Hyatt Credit Card or the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card. Hyatt cardholders will continue to earn 4 Hyatt points per dollar spent at SLH properties through August 31, 2024.

Hot Tip:

While it’s sad to see Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) go, all hope is not lost. Hyatt recently acquired Mr. and Mrs. Smith, which will add over 1,500 boutique hotels to its portfolio.

Final Thoughts

We learned last month that Small Luxury Hotels of the World was ditching Hyatt for Hilton Honors, but we didn’t know exactly when that was happening until now. May 15, 2024, is the last day to enjoy Hyatt benefits at SLH properties.

Reservations made through Hyatt with check-in dates after May 15, 2024, will be honored; however, Hyatt benefits and points earning will no longer apply.

The information regarding The World of Hyatt Credit Card was independently collected by Upgraded Points and not provided nor reviewed by the issuer.
