This would be for the PH Milan, if that matters.
According to two Hyatt phone agents today, the cash room type/rate that is upgradeable with points to a suite is a room that can only be booked by calling Hyatt.

I had an email exchange with a Virtuoso agent who did not suggest that I could upgrade a room booked through the agent to a suite with points. The cost difference between the base room and the suite far exceeded the value of Virtuoso or Prive benefits plus 9,000 points.

To be clear, I'm referring to "Room upgrades on paid nights" on https://world.hyatt.com/content/gp/e...-upgrades.html

In light of posts that a Virtuoso booked room can be upgraded with a DSU, this surprises me.
