Hyatt Regency Sacramento REVIEW - MASTER THREAD

Preface: The pressure is still on to get some stays in this year to maintain Diamond status. An associate was in town so took the opportunity to check-in last night.

Rate: AAA rate of $107.10. We have an annoying local tax of $1.50 and a CA tour tax which added .13 to the bill. This is atop room tax which was $12.85. Not a cheap stay but a stay. Was not able to check-in online.

Transportation: We drove in and parked on the street before heading out to Dim Sum. There are lots of parking meter spots. Sunday is free. There is a parking garage behind the Hotel which is attached. You can get comped for a couple hours if dining at the Hotel.

Parking: As noted above.

Check-in: We checked in early. Our upgraded room was still being cleaned and the agent checked to see if it was ready. It was.

Perks: Upgraded to RC floor and offered amenity card. Took the points. The RC is on ten. The Club has been renovated but seating remains limited. There is a flat panel tv on the wall and a computer with a printer. Free access. The spread this morning was nice. Much better than the Sheraton. It had the usual continental items along with cheeses, meats and smoked salmon. Bottled water was available. During the afternoon a variety of soft drinks are available along with cookies.

Room: The room was ok. A bit dated. We had a direct view of the Capitol. You enter and have a bathroom on the right. Standard dated bathroom with push out rod for the tub. The king bed was up against the bathroom wall. You have a sofa, table with comfy chair. You have a half window which opens then a desk. The tv center is standard then comes a frig and closet. Not exciting but comfortable and functional.

Internet: $9.95 for 24 hours.

Gym: Did not go.

Spa: ?

Eating venues: We have eaten at all the venues at one time or another. All are good. Around the area are a multitude of places.

Local markets: I have not noted a local market in the area. Of course the Downtown Plaza shopping area is close.

Local area: Center of Sacramento. Nice just to walk around.

Negatives: The Hotel can use a renovation of their rooms.

Closing: A comfortable place to stay. If you have status it will get you more at the Sheraton where you often get a corner suite.
