It’s an exciting time to be a World of Hyatt member.

As of Wednesday, April 24, 700 new properties have joined the World of Hyatt portfolio via Hyatt’s acquisition of the Mr and Mrs Smith brand last fall. That deal, worth around $65.5 million, opens the door for boutique, curated properties around the world for World of Hyatt members.

Better still, those members can now earn and redeem points for stays at select Mr and Mrs Smith properties that have joined the portfolio.

“From glamping stays and boutique wellness retreats, palazzos, world-class ski resorts, and more, we are thrilled to welcome World of Hyatt Members to Mr and Mrs Smith hotels,” said Laurie Blair, vice president of global marketing at Hyatt.

Let’s delve a little deeper into the hottest new partnership the hotel world has seen for a while.

Everything You Need to Know About Mr and Mrs Smith Joining World of Hyatt

Over 700 New Properties Join World of Hyatt

The Mr and Mrs Smith portfolio comprises over 2,300 properties, with just over 700 hotels joining Hyatt to start.

“We know our members will both value and love this expanded portfolio of global boutique and luxury hotels that guests and members will now have access to,” said Blair.

These 700 Mr and Mrs Smith properties are spread around the world, including in 20 countries where Hyatt previously had no presence, such as Fiji.

The list of new countries to join Hyatt’s portfolio currently includes Andorra, Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Bhutan, Bolivia, British Virgin Islands, Cyprus, Denmark, Dominica, Ecuador, Fiji, Grenada, Israel, Laos, Mauritius, Mozambique, Myanmar, Namibia, Norway, Romania, Saint Barthelemy, Slovenia and Tanzania.

The partnership will mean the expansion of Hyatt’s footprint in countries where the brand already has properties, such as Greece. This includes a total of 20 Mr and Mrs Smith hotels scattered around the Aegean Sea, bringing an experience that Hyatt members weren’t able to enjoy previously.

While not all of Mr and Mrs Smith’s 2,300+ properties will join the Hyatt portfolio initially, Blair says this is just the first phase of integration. However, note that some hotels won’t be included in the long run.

“Due to brand conflict, there will be some hotels that won’t ever join the Hyatt portfolio,” said Aimee Hodgkin, hotel and villa partnerships director at Mr and Mrs Smith.

To check if there’s a Mr and Mrs Smith hotel where you’re headed next, simply sort the hotels by brand when booking your next Hyatt stay.

Earning and Redeeming World of Hyatt Points on Mr and Mrs Smith Stays

World of Hyatt Members can expect consistent earning and redeeming benefits. For example, members will earn 5 points per $1 spent on eligible Mr and Mrs Smith stays. All Discoverist, Explorist, and Globalist Status holders will also receive their respective points bonuses of 10%, 20%, and 30%.

Each eligible night stay will also count towards World of Hyatt elite status as well as Milestone Rewards earnings and Brand Explorer rewards.

It is also now possible to earn American Airlines AAdvantage miles for stays at Mr and Mrs Smith properties when booked through Hyatt.com, as part of an existing partnership.

How Many World of Hyatt Points Are Needed to Stay at a Mr and Mrs Smith Property?

First and foremost, redemptions for stays at Mr and Mrs Smith properties will not be aligned with an award chart. That’s the bad news. However, all rooms that are available at a paid rate will be redeemable for World of Hyatt members.

Here are some examples of the number of points you can expect to redeem for stays at some of the new Mr and Mrs Smith properties:

Benefits

Perks and benefits associated with hotel elite status are of high importance to frequent travelers when considering where to stay on the road.

All World of Hyatt members will get extra perks, similar to the existing “extra” that guests receive when booking directly with Mr and Mrs Smith.

Whether it’s a bottle of Champagne at Uxua Casa Hotel and Spa or a private yoga class for 2 at the Aguas Claras in Costa Rica, World of Hyatt members will enjoy additional complimentary benefits.

Members who redeem Hyatt points for stays at Mr and Mrs Smith properties will be inclusive of resort fees and will often (but not always) include breakfast.

However, when it comes to other World of Hyatt elite benefits, such as Globalist breakfast, that won’t be a consistent benefit like it is at other Hyatt properties.

“We are continuing to evaluate ways to enhance guest experiences, especially for our most valued elite members,” said Blair.

What To Know About Mr & Mrs Smith

Mr & Mrs Smith was founded by travel-loving couple James and Tamara Lohan back in 2003. Their love of luxury and boutique hotels inspired them to curate a handpicked list of their favorite properties to recommend to friends.

20 years on, the portfolio of hotels features more than 2,300 properties around the world, such as the magical Arctic Treehouse in Finland.

Mr and Mrs Smith do not own the properties featured in its portfolio. Rather, each hotel is invited to join the program by a team of hotel experts.

“All of the hotels are invited into the program, they don’t buy their way in,” explained Marion Barrere, curation director at Mr and Mrs Smith.

Final Thoughts

The day has finally arrived: World of Hyatt members and guests can earn and redeem points for stays at select Mr and Mrs Smith properties around the world.

This is an exciting time for World of Hyatt members, who will get to enjoy a host of gorgeous luxury and boutique properties in much-loved and brand-new destinations. However, the lack of an award chart and inconsistent elite benefits are a slightly disappointing development.
