Amongst the major hotel loyalty programs, World of Hyatt is renowned for the generous benefits it offers to elite members.
Another unique perk afforded to Globalists is Guest of Honor, through which you can share your in-hotel benefits with a guest who has been gifted a stay on your behalf.
What Is World of Hyatt Guest of Honor?
Recall that Globalist status is the highest tier within Hyatt’s status program, and is earned by accruing 60 nights, 100,000 base points, or 20 events to your account each year.
The Guest of Honor benefit lets you book an award hotel stay for anyone of your choice, and in turn, your guest will enjoy Globalist benefits during their stay.
The Globalist benefits you’ll get to share with your Guest of Honor include:
- Complimentary breakfast
- Lounge access
- Room upgrades to standard suites
- 4pm late check-out
- Free parking
- Waived resort fees
With the Guest of Honor benefit, you can generously gift family and friends with a luxurious experience they might not otherwise receive without achieving status on their own.

Likewise, earning Globalist status is no small feat, especially for infrequent travellers. Therefore, by booking someone through the Guest of Honor program, you’re allowing them to temporarily bypass elite status requirements, and enjoy a taste of what you’ve come to enjoy with your World of Hyatt status.
