If you are going for a Hyatt, I recommend the Hyatt Embarcadero instead of the Hyatt Regency. I've stayed at both. It's an easier walk to the Omni, and with a bit of luck, you get a nice high room on the east side with an unobstructed view of the ferry building and Bay. (However, Park Hyatt is closer to Omni than either of the other Hyatts.)

I didn't think much of the Renaissance on California St.: all of the times I stayed there on corporate rates, I was on the inside of the courtyard, facing only other sides of the courtyard. Every morning around 5 or 5:30, the doormen started blowing their whistles for taxis, whistles that echoed in the courtyard; a rooster would have been easier to sleep through . . .

[Edited to add:] For seafood, try Scoma's in Fisherman's Wharf. Omni has a nice steak restaurant. Look in SF Dining Forum (assuming it still exists) for many good recommendations.
