All members upgrading to Platinum or Black will automatically receive a membership card in the mail approximately 4-5 weeks after they upgrade.

What are Extraordinary Demand Dates?

DISCOVERY Black and Platinum level member benefit of 'Guaranteed Room Availability' is not available during certain dates and exceptional events that generate extremely high demand for the desired destination. These dates are known as Extraordinary Demand Dates. The use of Extraordinary Demand Dates is very rare, and we at Doyle Collection strive to minimise the need to invoke this clause wherever possible.

What is a Local Experience?

A Local Experience provides you, as a member, with an opportunity to discover the world outside of your hotel. It provides a local twist to a favourite attraction at your destination or gives you access to an activity you wouldn’t normally be able to do. By using our local contacts we provide unique experiences to enrich your stay and bring the discovery element back into travel. Local Experiences are authentic, unique and original and layer onto your itinerary to create a memorable stay.

How can I earn a Local Experience Award?

PLATINUM LEVEL LOCAL EXPERIENCE AWARDS are earned...

  • upon attaining Platinum Level membership (after staying 10 nights in GHA hotels within a year)
  • when staying at another GHA brand for the first time (as a Platinum Level Member)
  • Upon renewing your Platinum Level membership status by spending more than 10 nights at GHA hotels annually

BLACK LEVEL LOCAL EXPERIENCE AWARDS are earned...

  • upon attaining Black Level membership (after spending 30 nights at GHA hotels within a year)
  • when staying at another GHA brand for the first time (as a Black Level Member)
  • upon renewing your Black Level membership status by spending over 30 nights at GHA hotels annually

How do I redeem a Local Experience Award?

Local Experiences can be viewed and booked on  gha.com. Upon selecting  ‘Redeem’ on your selected Local Experience, you will be asked to select the award you’d like to redeem (if applicable). You should then enter the date when you wish to participate in the Local Experience and enter the confirmation number for your reservation at the participating hotel. Provided you have a valid Local Experience award to redeem and after confirming your selections, you will be presented with a confirmation screen detailing the summary information and a confirmation email will automatically be sent to your previously provided email address. Please present a print-out of the confirmation email to the hotel upon check-in.

How long do I have to redeem a Local Experience Award when I earn it?

Validity periods for Local Experience Awards differ according to their tier level. Platinum Awards are valid for 12 months and Black Awards are valid for 15 months.

Must I have a valid stay at the hotel to reserve a Local Experience?

Local Experiences that take place within the hotel may be booked independent of a reservation, unless specified otherwise. These include dinner, lunch and afternoon tea Local Experiences

Local Experiences that occur outside of the hotel, such as tickets to a local attraction or luxury store gift cards, must be booked in conjunction with an overnight stay in the hotel.

Each Local Experience on gha.com clearly indicates if a reservation is required in order to reserve it via the "Stay Required" or "No Stay Required" notice.

Can I book a Local Experience when I get to the hotel?

Many Local Experiences can be redeemed in the hotel upon check-in. However, some Local Experiences require advance booking (i.e. select concerts and ticketed events). Please check the individual terms and conditions for each Local Experience for any advance booking requirements or enquire with a member of staff at hotel reception.

How do I cancel a Local Experience?

You can cancel a previously booked Local Experience by logging in to your Member account and selecting the ‘View My Account’ menu. Here you’ll see a list of Available, Reserved and Past Awards. In the ‘Reserved Awards’ section, click on the ‘Cancel’ button beside the Award you wish to cancel. Upon confirming this choice, you’ll receive a cancellation email and you’ll see that this Award is now listed within the ‘Available’ section of your account.
