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.
I've stayed in one of the lower Balcony Suites on the 3rd floor. All of the above is correct. 1.5 bathrooms was nice. The main bathroom did have a smallish spa tub right next to the window/balcony.

I really liked the location of the HR although I agree that the GH is nicer.

That is a brutal rate. Totally not worth it. How's the GH?

As a diamond, what kind of upgrade will I receive for four night stay?
Yeah, balcony and/or regency club. I am so not a fan of the rooms at this property. They are drab and poorly decorated, and I have always had noise issues. The basket of towels on the bathroom floor is just pathetic.

Are the amenities (lounge, breakfast) still really bad?
Per prior comments, the lounge is pretty nice, with the best bay views in the hotel. Evening spread is particularly good. I was unimpressed with the breakfast.

It was nice, it was a cool spa area too, but the curtain was a little tough to open.

If anyone else is interested in a preview of rooms/suites, I posted a short video previewing the Regency Club Balcony, a One Bedroom Balcony Suite, and room 1756 (one of the less impressive of the Grande Suites)

Great deals all this week for Thanksgiving. $128 for My Elite Rate. That's the lowest I've seen since 2008 Financial Crisis.

Please, don't consider paying $450 here early December though unless you really hate your employer and/or clients.

+1 Got that rate last night for a little holiday time in the city.

Another stay here a few nights ago. To be fair, I've only stayed in suites here, so I can't comment on the regular rooms, but judging by my experiences so far, this is my favorite Hyatt, period.

The lounge is just fantastic, the best Hyatt one I've ever seen, in the former circular restaurant at the top of the hotel. It provides magnificent views of the SF waterfront and Bay Bridge. The food selection in the evening and at breakfast were both extensive and tasty. Unlike the GH lounge, it's easy to have a complete dinner at the HR.

My balcony suite was on the 14th floor and was again spectacular (even better view than my last one by far).

Absolutely no complaints whatsoever. A great stay again from beginning to end. The GH is also absolutely great, but the lounge and the location of the HR put it over the top for me!

Quick question-- on the SF Regency Club website, it says that Regency Club accomodations are an extra $75, based on single occupancy. I just booked 2 nights on points for RC room next week for my wife and I. I assume we won't have to pay extra for her to have access to the Club lounge?

Hello DaveInLA,

Thanks for your question and happy to assist. If you book the Regency Club directly, it will cover Club access and benefits for number of guests on your reservation. The amounts quoted on the website were regarding upgrading to Regency Club at check in which is subject to availability.

I am certain you will have a fantastic time at Hyatt Regency San Francisco with those fabulous views. Thank you for choosing Hyatt!

Safe travels,

Julie B--Hyatt Guest Relations

Is the Embarcadero Suite worth a ~$65/night upgrade on a 2 night points stay (that is occurring before July 31st so will end up netting to 24k points for the stay due to 20% CC holder rebate)?

Related question - would that upgrade include RC access?

For me, it would not be worth it.

Paid suite upgrades in the United States do not include RC access.

1. Do all Club Level rooms have kings?

2. Is it possible to get Club lounge access using $ or points and keep a paid standard room with two beds?

OT - but every time this thread gets bumped back to the front page of the Hyatt forum, and I notice the thread starter, it makes me think of how strange life is, and how our internet life can be such a poor reflection of our real life.

and now, back to your regularly scheduled programming...

I'm not sure about 1, but it is definitely be possible to get club access with a two bed room. Suggest you book over the phone through GP and make your request.
