I've asked this questions a couple of times in regards to Virtuoso and FHR bookings. Unfortunately it seems that using the points upgrades is restricted to booking the actual Hyatt Daily Rate; so even though the rate is the same those programs aren't eligible. If however, you have a DSU then yes you can upgrade those rates....

If perhaps Hyatt had an in house affinity program on the Horizon, then maybe those rates would be eligible for upgrade using points.....
