Yes, both of those have the parking permits now. Also, Marriott Suites. We had used Homewood Suites parking FOREVER and never had a problem until September when we noticed all of the parking permits there so we checked all of the hotels in that area and they all had permits in different colors., I guess color coded for the property....Bummer)

Did it a few times already, never had any problems. Judging from the amount of cars parked at the shoe mall across the Hyatt, I was not the only one.

Homewood cars had permits hanging but in the back between CP and Marriott I saw plenty of cars without any tags. That's where I ended up parking a couple days ago. YMMV of course.

agreed. Received the North Wing Room on 5th Floor this time. Its renovated and last time I got a room in the south tower...its like a night & day difference.

Parking fee is so high. Is the ES lot cheaper to park? I wonder if I can walk up there and just pay for a parking permit for a night.

The $15 self parking fee isn't that bad when you consider the cheap rates that are often available in the $70 to $80 range.

The ES, as with all Hilton properties along Harbor Blvd., charges $12/day for parking (except the main Hilton which is $15).

The lobby renovation is starting this week. They were moving/making temporarily Disney/bellman and other desks this morning when I was checking out. It is probably going to be quite a mess for the next couple of months.

I received my very first upgrade to a 2-room suite at any Hyatt as a Plat Sunday night. AAA rate with breakfast ~$75 is great, cheaper than the Sheraton Cerritos.

Thanks for the reminder, I forgot this was coming. I return this weekend for a stay for the first time since November. I overheard a waitress in the restaurant comment that the lobby restaurant would be closing and the buffet will be moved temporarily to one of the banquet rooms. Can anyone confirm if this has happened yet?

Yes. I was just there, and the old restaurant and bar area is blocked off with a temporary wall. The restaurant, and temporary front desk, are housed in the banquet area beyond the elevators in the South Tower.

Because the old restaurant are is walled off, you have to take a detour from the parking lot around the North Tower elevator lobby, past the Starbucks, past the old front desk, way down to the South Tower lobby. A long way to schlep your luggage.

During the day---probably only from M-F--the mess and noise is substantial.

That's why they have a $69 Hard Hat rate, if you can put up with the noise or avoid it during the day.

If you are heading out to Disney for the day you probably avoid the mess, also I dont mind paying the parking here as you know your car is safe etc, Anaheim is not the safest city in the World . If you have a suite with microwave there is a great Chinese place right across the street and you can warm up the left overs also Target for snacks etc
