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
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.
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?
