6 Restaurants to Visit for Hyatt’s Dining Promotion

Bet you never thought to order from a hotel restaurant when you're at home. And you'll get a side of bonus points.

Many or all of the products featured here are from our partners who compensate us. This may influence which products we write about and where and how the product appears on a page. However, this does not influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own. Here is a list of our partners and here's how we make money.

Dine in or order takeout from your local Hyatt hotel’s in-house restaurant and you’ll rack up bonus points toward free hotel rooms. That’s thanks to a fresh World of Hyatt promotion in which you can earn roughly 30% of your restaurant bill back in the form of World of Hyatt points.

Between now and Feb. 28, World of Hyatt members can earn triple points on dine-in, delivery or takeout at participating hotel restaurants — even when you’re not staying the night at the hotel.

To get those triple points credited to your account, you'll need to share your World of Hyatt member number with your waiter or at the cash register at the time of payment.

That’s a good incentive to finally dine at that Hyatt restaurant in your neighborhood that you’ve been yearning to try. As it turns out, not all Hyatt restaurants are the overpriced, generic poolside pizza and ice cream that you might expect from most hotels.

In fact, some of Hyatt's hotels are home to restaurants that are destinations in themselves, like the Park Hyatt Washington D.C.’s Michelin-distinguished Blue Duck Tavern. Or, head to the Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, where you can dine at Morimoto Maui, led by celebrity chef Masaharu Morimoto of "Iron Chef" fame.

Nerdy tip: Points may take two to three weeks to be credited to your account, and there is a cap of 100,000 bonus points that you can earn (though that’s more than $6,500 in spending, so you probably don’t have to worry about hitting that limit).

How much is Hyatt’s 3X dining promotion worth?

Triple points translates to roughly a 30% return on your restaurant bill, based on NerdWallet’s valuation of Hyatt points at 2 cents each.

Here’s how that works:

All World of Hyatt members (regardless of elite status tier) earn 5 Base Points per eligible $1 spent at Hyatt hotels. With the triple points promotion, that works out to 15 points per dollar spent (we value 15 points at about 30 cents).

Plus, if you hold elite status, you could earn even more: Discoverist members get an additional 10% bonus on eligible purchases while Explorist members get 20%, and it’s 30% for Globalist members.

Say you’re dining lakeside at the Tarpon Bay restaurant inside Florida’s Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa. You order a crispy whole snapper ($45) for you, plus the lemon Parmesan-crusted salmon ($36) for your date. You split the jumbo lump crab cake with queso and avocado creme ($17) as an appetizer, a bottle of rose ($48) to drink and a strawberry-chocolate baked mousse tart ($9) for dessert. The bill is $155 before tax and tip, which means you’ll earn about $45 worth of points from your meal. Not a bad kickback for a fancy seafood date night.

Here’s how that bill shakes out in terms of points:

Qualifying spend: $155

Base Points: 755

Non-Stay triple points (the additional 2 points per $1 over your Base Points): 1,510

Total points earned: 2,265 (worth about $45 based on our valuation of 1 point at 2 cents).

Plus, you can stack this offer with any additional credit card dining rewards points. Say you paid with your Chase Sapphire Reserve®, which earns an unlimited 3 points per dollar spent on dining. In the above scenario, that’s an additional 465 Chase Ultimate Rewards® points, which you can opt to transfer right back into World of Hyatt points (or you can opt to claim them for other travel rewards for more flexibility).

6 great restaurants to take advantage of the Hyatt dining promo

Hyatt Category 1 properties start at 5,000 points, which means you’d need to spend about $350 at Hyatt restaurants through the promotion to rack up your first free room. If that kind of offer has you saying “challenge accepted,” here are six tantalizing Hyatt restaurants in the U.S. to take advantage of the triple points promotion:

Blue Duck Tavern at the Park Hyatt Washington D.C.

City: Washington, D.C.

Restaurant: Blue Duck Tavern.

Why it’s great: The restaurant itself is certified-great, considering it was recognized in the 2020 Michelin Guide for Washington, D.C. As far as the dining experience itself, a large garden terrace is ideal if you prefer outdoor seating. And if you’re the takeout type, Blue Duck Tavern has its own webpage for online ordering, which you can select for pickup or delivery.

COVID safety requirements: Face coverings are required in hotel indoor public areas and when moving around in outdoor areas.

Open for takeout? Yes.

Weft & Warp Art Bar + Kitchen at the Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Bungalows

City: Scottsdale, Arizona.

Restaurant: Weft & Warp Art Bar + Kitchen.

Why it’s great: Brunch is offered on weekends only, but you can still order the avocado toast served with sunny side up cage-free eggs and lemon preserves ($16) any day of the week.

COVID safety requirements: Face coverings are required in hotel indoor public areas and when moving around in outdoor areas.

Open for takeout? Yes.

Shor American Seafood Grill at the Hyatt Centric Key West Resort & Spa

City: Key West, Florida.

Restaurant: Shor American Seafood Grill.

Why it’s great: The views. Shor, a seafood restaurant, has always been about outdoor dining, with seating on a veranda overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

COVID safety requirements: Face coverings are required in hotel indoor public areas and when moving around in outdoor areas.

Open for takeout? Yes.

Blue Mojito at the Hyatt Centric Key West Resort & Spa

City: Key West, Florida.

Restaurant: Blue Mojito Bar & Grill.

Why it’s great: If you prefer a bar to a full restaurant, skip Shor and instead head to Blue Mojito, which is located next door. It has open-air lounge seating, and well cocktails are 50% off during the daily happy hour from 3-5 p.m.

COVID safety requirements: Face coverings are required in hotel indoor public areas and when moving around in outdoor areas.

Open for takeout? Yes.

TENN at the Holston House Nashville

City: Nashville, Tennessee.

Restaurant: TENN.

Why it’s great: TENN is all about brunch, where you’ll find hearty dishes like a Denver omelet ($15) or a short rib hash with sweet potatoes and a sunny egg ($14).

COVID safety requirements: Face coverings are required in hotel indoor public areas and when moving around in outdoor areas.

Open for takeout? Yes, and also delivery.

1886 Cafe & Bakery at The Driskill

City: Austin, Texas.

Restaurant: 1886 Cafe & Bakery.

Why it’s great: The Driskill's signature restaurant, The Driskill Grill, is currently closed — but the adjacent 1886 Cafe & Bakery is open for weekend brunch and daily takeout. And it's not a bad consolation prize (even if you were hankering for a dry-aged steak), largely thanks to the Texas Pecan Waffle ($13).

COVID safety requirements: Face coverings are required in hotel indoor public areas and when moving around in outdoor areas.

Open for takeout? Yes.
