Hyatt has spent the last several months integrating properties from the former Two Roads Hospitality collection into its own portfolio. Two Roads consists of four brands, or “flags,” which are Thompson Hotels, Joie de Vivre, Alila, and Destination Hotels. Rather than all at once, each brand has been added one at a time, and in some cases a few properties at a time.
The first wave of Destination Hotels is finally live on the Hyatt website, with more coming soon.

I’ve been to the Motif in Seattle a couple of times, including when it used to be a Red Lion. It’ll be nice to have even more properties in what I consider my “home town” and at an attractive award rate, too. More and more hotels around the West Coast have been bumping up a category lately. Category 4 is still eligible for the free night award that comes with a Hyatt credit card.
Other Destination Hotels (coming later) are properties in resort destinations. These include the Resort at Squaw Creek, The Gant in Aspen, and Mauna Lani Point on the Big Island of Hawaii. Many are in areas that just don’t have a lot of hotel options to begin with, or at least not a lot of award redemption options. These additions could make the World of Hyatt program more compelling.
Remember that through December 31, 2019, you can continue to earn 2,000 points for your first qualifying stay at any of the four new brands incorporated from Two Roads Hospitality, as well as a free night when you try all four. Check out the Hyatt mobile app to see which brands you’ve already visited.
