Not sure how many of you follow the Hyatt program, but they've recently announced a revamp of their rewards program, entitled "World of Hyatt"

 

They've remade/renamed their elite levels. Changes will go into effect on March 1st of 2017.

Some great benefits in my opinion, and I wish Marriott would do some of them. Some changes aren't so great though.

 

Personally love the free parking on award stays, and the ability for a Globalist to let anyone else receive their benefits if you're booking an award for them. Don't know how many of you would be interested in this, but I think it's important to stay up to date on the competition.
