When we think of points, we typically think of airlines. My advice is to only use Amex points for flying or an airline credit card like American Delta or United. Don’t ever use these cards for hotel stays because the redemption value is terrible. Now more than ever, hotel points programs are anything but pointless (no pun intended) – the value is there and the value is real.
When we think of hotel points we think of our average Marriott, Hilton, Holiday Inn, Ritz Carlton or Hyatt Hotel and many of us prefer boutique hotels and lesser known brands familiar to certain areas of the world. Fear no more you point doubters….our top brand hoteliers have partnered with all of the above to include these fantastic properties in every location at incredible values.
Today I am going to show you the incredible value Hyatt Hotels that frequent traveler program members can redeem their precious points at in Italy this summer.
Palm Suite for 25,000 points a night. You can stay inside a grand 18th century building located within walking distance of the Pantheon, the Colosseum and Basilica of St Peter.
Hotel D’Inghilterra is also only 25,000 points a night and is located neighboring the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain – a 16th century masterpiece. This is one of my favorite hotels in Rome.
Margutta 19 is a tad pricier at 30,000 points a night but this boutique stylish hotel situated on the cobblestone “artists street” feels secluded and precious while still affording you the ability to walk to most of the city’s famed attractions.
Palazzo Manfredi is 40,000 points a night but pure luxury and full of history located in the heart of the city, built in 1500, beautifully restored and modern with spectacular views of the Colosseum.
For 25,000 points Regency Hotel offers stellar service in the heart of Florence – yet still tucked away. A historical stay with luxury amenities.
Villa di Piazzano. For 25,000 points a night you can stay at this rich centuries old estate once owned by Cardinal Silvio Passerini. The Tuscan property is spectacular in every way.
For 40,000 points Casa Angelina is a dream boutique property located among the cliffs of the Amalfi Coast. This adults only pure white theme hotel is the essence of beauty and luxury combined.
For 40,000 points a night Hotel Villa Franca located in Positano is Hyatt’s most exclusive and best value for your points property.

The Grand Hotel Cocumella will set you back 30,000 points a night but you will stay at a magnificent Sorrento hotel surrounded by fabulous views of the Bay of Naples and perfectly manicured gardens. This is top notch luxury at a great value.
For 30,000 points a night the luxurious La Villa del Re is a wonderful choice if Sardinia is on your Bucket List. The resort is situated on the Sardinian coastline nestled between mountains and gardens offering something for everyone with wonderful views everywhere you look.
