    If I book a Hotel (let's say a Hyatt) through the Rocketmiles website will I still get Hyatt GP Plat. or Diamond benefits?

    No. Rocketmiles doesn't honor elite benefits, to my knowledge. PointsHound does on some of their rates.

    What would Rocketmiles have to do with it? I am only booking through them. Would it not be the Hotel that makes the call if they give me the Diamond benefits even when my rate was a Rocketmile rate? Or do I understand that wrong?

    I haven't booked through Rocketmiles, only Points Hound. My understanding is that the Rocketmiles rates are true 3rd party bookings and thus ineligible for many of your Elite benefits. PointsHound does have rates that are eligible, called Double Dips.
