Cool, I never think of the 2! Maybe I am secretly anti-Glendale or Eagle Rock or wherever it comes in to the 134.

I'm with ya. Unless I am craving kabob or schwarma, I steer clear of Glendale as well. Not really a fan of Americana either- I much prefer the grove.

The pool request triggers my asking if the nights can be used at the Hotel Victor in South Beach? I always enjoy staying there.

Also, the Manchester Grand Hyatt in San Diego is a big convention hotel, but I always get a really nice room and love being close to downtown.

Zürich - no way! Glorified, overrated hotel with no upgrades, no pool, average service, average breakfast - I don't like a'la carte stuff, where you have order from small choices and then wait for it...definitely skip that.

You didn't rule out South America. We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Grand Hyatt Santiago. They have a *fabulous* (outdoor) pool - and it's the right time of year for the pool in that city.

Zurich. Fantastic King Suite. Perfect and attentive service. Great breakfast buffet. Great location. Never disappoints.

Thumbs up re Buenos Aires

Went to Mendoza for two nights, concierge set up 5 winery tours, they had outdoor pool and even won $ in casino. I highly recommend both hotels.

Partial Email I sent to Gold Passport/both hotel GM's re WOW experienece:


The Hyatt teams in both Park Hyatt hotels were extremely attentive, friendly, and professional. The Doormen and front desk staff at the Buenos Aires location greeted us warmly each time we entered the hotel and made us feel very welcome. The upgraded rooms were very clean and fantastic. Special recognition is extended to Head Sommelier Macrello Rebole and Food/Beverages Service Manager Sebstian Llanos in Buenos Aires, thank you for the wine insights and recommendations, plus exceptional service. The Buenos Aires concierge team also professionally facilitated several reservations and modifications. I enjoyed the easy to use e-concierge service. The team who worked the breakfast shift in the Gioia restaurant were very attentive and service focused, plus the continental breakfast was really good.

Warm regards are also extended to the the team working in the Buenos Aires Ahin spa. (Thank you for offering the opportunity to shower and refresh hours before my room was ready. This act of kindness was a great way to start my first day in Argentina!) I also thoroughly enjoyed my two spa services.

Additionally, Chief Concierge Martin Fleury in Mendoza was very helpful and provided wonderful guidance. Thank you for creating a memorable vacation and I look forward to a return visit to further explore the wine region.

I would also like to recognize service from the US Gold Passport Diamond phone line. After we checked into the Buenos Aires hotel, we decided to take a side trip to Mendoza for two nights and then return to Buenos Aires. The Diamond team promptly adjusted my reservation without reciting fees, regulations, rules, etc. I sincerely appreciate this high level of service and am very appreciative of the ability to modify my stays.

THANK YOU all again for a GREAT week!

Warmest regards,

Here is my trip report for the Hyatt Lake Tahoe.

http://boardingarea.com/blogs/pointsmilesandmartinis/2010/03/hyatt-lake-tahoe-trip-report/


Not one of the most luxurious Hyatt's but is a fun trip.

Here is my trip report from the Park Hyatt Paris.

This is a great luxurious property.

When you check PH Zürich Master Thread, you'll find there are many more expriences similar to mine than yours. "Never dissapoints" are big words.

I found the Hyatt Clearwater to treat Diamonds very well. They upgraded us to a 2 bedroom suite and gave breakfast every day.

Would also recommend PH Paris. Rooms ont he 1st floor also have a small balcony looking onto the inner courtyard.

Not applicable to the OP's question but for other readers looking for good Hyatt's, you can't beat the Park Hyatt Dubai...incredible swimming pool and service.

Still PH Duhau, Buenos Aires, for me. The facilities -- whether you like modern elegance or period elegance. The service -- including the GM's reception with waiting name tags (all Diamonds or other similar - - claim to fame). And he was really there, and got around to everyone.



BTW, and I don't remember if I put this in my review thread post... I had one incident here -- a biggie to me. I had put the (leather) "No moleste" sign out before I left for the day. When I returned, the room was made up. I called Housekeeping to say I didn't think this was right. The next morning, there was an apology signed by the GM under my door. Mentioned here as another high water mark, afterall.
