Last week, I talked about how I had booked 3 different hotel reservations but gotten 0 upgrades.  This is all for our upcoming trip to Peru

One of these hotels was the Grand Hyatt Washington, where I was using the free night certificate on my wife’s account.  I was hopeful to add my Diamond err I mean Globalist status onto the reservation, so we could take advantage of things like room upgrades, executive lounge access, etc., so I was wondering if you can add your Globalist number on someone else’s award stay.

Try #1: Twitter

Twitter is usually a good way to get things like this done, so that was my first try

(SEE ALSO: List of airline and hotel Twitter contacts)

Unfortunately, that did not work

Don’t give up! Try #2: Emailing the hotel directly

I got the email address of the hotel (again, from Twitter) and send them a quick note to see if adding your Globalist number to someone else’s award stay was possible.

I didn’t hear anything for a few days but then BOOM!  I got this email back from the hotel

Mr. Miller,

We have added your Globalist membership number on the reservation and assigned a room for you and your wife on the 12th floor.  Thank you for your loyalty.

We look forward to welcoming you.

Kind Regards,

So I got that goin for me, which is nice.  Perhaps the ability to add your own Globalist number to someone else’s award stay is common knowledge, but I did not know it

Did you know about this ability to add your Globalist number to someone else’s award stay?
