I spoke way too soon. I thought we got a free upgrade to a suite but the gold passport line somehow goofed to use my last diamond suite upgrade on his one night MR. After many calls and waiting hours for the twitter team to respond I think I may of fixed the issue. Still, I never made any mention of the suite so idk what happened over the phone.

Suite Question:

So I'm booked into a Balcony Suite, which has so-so reviews. I'm really curious if the photo on their website: http://sanfranciscoregency.hyatt.com...31418.jpg.html
is really representative of the room. This makes it look like there's a tub right next to the balcony. Not that that'd be a bad thing, just curious, anyone stayed there?

I've stayed in two different balcony suite setups. One, on a high floor, had only one bathroom with no tub that was not near the balcony. The other, on a lower floor, had 1 1/2 bathrooms. The master bath did indeed have a tub (separate from the shower) with a window that overlooked the balcony.

The room with one bath on a high floor was a xx56 series. I think the other setup was the same but I don't recall.

Thanks for the info. The e-mail confirmation shows spa tub in the description, so if I end up without one I'll probably aim to change rooms, though I hear lower levels are a bit noisier. Estandby offers upgrade to the Grande Suite for 500: a bit pricey to get the best of both worlds, and it wouldn't be guaranteed anyway.

I actually like the SF HR, but I can't imagine that anything in the hotel would be worth $500+.

Anyone notice that rates for weekends in Sept / October are crazy high -- least expensive are about $350. In past, was able to book rates in high $100 and low $200s.

I feel as if rates in SF are generally ridiculous this year. I see it at most Hyatts, Marriotts, and Kimptons (those are just the ones I monitor). Seems to be the increased market demand and lower occupancy rates.

Definitely noticed. I'm doing points+cash HR Embarcadero fleetweet weekend, but saw the rates were 500+. Looks like on a couple weekends there's no availability even!

I was just there for a two-night stay at $100+points+DSU, and found the xx56 room to be terrific: Living room, bedroom, 1-1/2 baths, and large balcony. The only complaint on the stay was that the RC closes at 9pm; it should be no earlier than 10pm. A lot of people (including me!) had come in after dinner to enjoy the RC, and kicked out by staff promptly at 9pm.

As noted above, September is convention time. Rates have been in the $400-600 range the past few weeks.

Just scored a $198 AAA rate for this weekend; prices dropped just today.

I just booked first week of December for $450 a night! Nothing available in the city right now due to conventions.

As a diamond, what kind of upgrade will I receive for four night stay? Are the amenities (lounge, breakfast) still really bad?

Thanks!

The lounge at the HR SF is the best in the city. You may get a balcony room and/or a regency floor. Likely you won't get anything more than that.

Hopefully its on ER cause 450/night is rough for this hotel.
