I have an upcoming stay and read the entire thread. I saw some common themes, and thought it would be useful to start a wiki. Please feel free to update or correct anything. I haven't stayed here, so the information is based on the contents of the thread:

- Diamond Suite Upgrades are NOT available at this property.
- Diamond members receive a complimentary full breakfast for up to 4 guests.
- The beds are very firm platform beds. I saw a few posts where a foam pad for the top of the bed was requested.
- Docked cruise ships that may obstruct the view from the Harbour view rooms.
- The hotel is 4 stories.

The concierge desk offers a weekly tour of the Rocks on Saturday.

Link that shows when cruise ships will be docked opposite the hotel:

Thanks all. Sad, just checked the Saturday night availability and it says hotel is possibly booked out. I guess it sounds like I not gonna be able to check in early on Sunday.

Have you reached out to the hotel to ask?

The issue is that most international flights arrive in the morning peak at SYD 6-9AM do the vast majority of guests all want early check in.

Why not throw some points at the HR and prebook a night on cash and points, go there, shower, rest and then head over to the PH at 3PM?

That sounds likes a lot of trouble to me. PH can sure arrange shower for him even he couldn't get a room

Depends on comfort. We prebook the same room for convenience.

Recent two night stay here, booked as an award. Received an Opera Deluxe room without asking. Very spacious room with an amazing view.

Great hotel with excellent service. Loved the Globalist breakfast too, which included the buffet as well as ala carte menu.

Would anyone share a DP on whether PHS allows Globalist breakfast served in room? In the past, I have had in-room breakfast at PH Toronto & PH Chicago, but at PH Sydney, they have charged me. Are there any standards around it as to which hotels charge, which doesn't charge for in-room dining?

Just to share my experience, I landed at around 7:30 and was at Hotel around 9. They let us use the swimming pool and Shower in the gym to freshen up while the room gets ready. Was given harbour/city view room, but was able to see Opera house without craning the neck. There were 2 kids and 2 adults, so they offered to put in a roll away bed, and even with that in the room, I felt there was enough room to move around. Most the staff was very friendly. All in all a decent stay except for the breakfast issue mentioned in my previous post. Any help with it would be greatly appreciated.

The standard is that unless they tell you that it's a free benefit you will be charged.... Glob status doesn't give you free room-service unless a property offers it as a gesture.

Under the WoH T&C (and GP before) room service breakfast is not a benefit.

Breakfast benefit (where provided) is not valid for in-room dining.
A small number of properties offer an exception. It is NOT an entitlement in any way, shape or form.

Here tonight.

I'm a 'real' Globalist with 40 nights to date this year, and average around 100 if that makes a difference.

Used free night we all received in March, booked Park King,
Checked in and upgraded to amazing Opera Deluxe.
Not a suite, but sweet enough. Epic view of Opera House.

Previously was at Four Seasons Sydney.. That place is a dump comparatively.

I'm very pleased with the result.

Hey everyone. I posted my review of our recent 4 night stay at the PH Sydney in the Luxury Forum...since I'm a luxury hotel regular but not a Hyatt regular:

I don't know if the Hyatt mods can also add that link to this forum or not.

Is this hotel worth 30k points per night? Not asking on a monetary basis (it clearly is). But more so if the hotel justifies using that many points or if there are better options around Sydney.

We used 30K per night for 4 nights for my mother's room. It was totally worth it for us. We also used 12K per night for the Westin for our final 1-2 nights. I had major issues at the Westin. Was the experience at the PH twice as good as that of the Westin? You bet it was.
