If it's Rancho Cordova, House. If it's Pleasanton, Place. Generally, House for more character and possible suite, kitchen...

I am at FLL now.. At the HP. The only reason that I chose HP over the HH across the street was due to the HH rate only being a studio. IIRC the rooms at the HP are bigger than the HH studio. If I knew I would have gotten an UG to a 1 BR, I would have def. gone for the HH...

Only other prob with the HH is that you sometimes have to deal with the smells of others cooking...

I think the breakfast at HH is better and the HH offers the reception..

If you're thinking about stopping at the bar, then definitely the Hyatt House. You're more likely to interact with other guests at HH, if that's something you like to do. I generally feel a more upbeat "vibe" at HH, too.

Add my vote for HH. Wouldn't choose an HP over them except maybe LAX/El Segundo and HP Des Moines.

Just booked Hyatt Place Dublin/Pleasonton based on this - mind saying why you prefer this HP vs the HH Pleasanton? Generally, I've found the HH's to be a little nicer.
Thx,

The renovated and brand new HPs are better than the old awful ones. In addition to Des Moines, Madison and the new downtown Minneapolis are pretty good.

I wish there were more HH choices.

In Pleasanton, the House is a much newer property, more conveniently located to freeway and shopping. The House is back in the "industrial parks" and office buildings. It's an older property, more run down (as of a year or so, my latest visit). They also apparently have a "party problem"; all guests have to sign a "no party" pledge. If there aren't any parties, though, House could be slightly quieter (further from freeway and busy roads), but I wouldn't want to be in the House without a car.

Edited to add: if you have a car and want to trek about 10 miles north, the Hyatt House in San Ramon is nice - former Hotel Sierra.

Depends :-) For one night, I'd suggest Hyatt Place. it's more consistent and so you'll know what you are getting. For an extended stay, I'd choose Hyatt House. You get some variety in the suite and can get past some of the bumps. In the few times I've stayed at Hyatt House, I've found the staff to be friendly and hospitable but not quite up to running an all-suite hotel. Hyatt Place gives you a better and smoother hotel-type experience.
