If your stay was multiple nights then, they will adjust it for sure.
Yes, that was explained to me afterwards by the Hyatt FT rep, who I DM'd (they have to do a manual correction in this case); however things have been corrected, and my tier status properly updated.

If I didn't need to make that one stay for the purpose of status, it wouldn't have been as of much importance, but circumstances didn't really give me a choice, as it were. I normally wouldn't wait for the last day.

I am planning a stay in Hyatt Regency Maui and have platinum status with Gold Passport. Would they provide free lounge access to the platinums there? Anyone with the experience ? Thank you

Thanks
I suggest going to the website betterbidding . com. Lots of tips there for figuring out certain hotels on Priceline and Hotwire.

Based on everything that I have read, including the thread listed here, you will only get points on up to 3 rooms.

Not unless the front desk makes a mistake.

Typically resort fees aren't charged on award/compilmentary nights but you can always double check with Hyatt Reservations

Welcome to Hyatt Gold Passport forum & Flyertalk^
Lounge access is not a Platinum benefit it is a Diamond benefit so highly unlikely
You could always ask nicely at check in but I would expect to pay for it as a Platinum
Have a wonderful stay
Cheers

Just curious-is there a compiled thread of platinum upgrade successes? (I did a quick search but couldn't find one). I know the SPG forum has a thread with gold upgrade successes and it's just nice to see which properties are generous in terms of upgrading rooms for the mid-tier members.

I'm guessing that thread, if it were to exist, would be rather brief.

It would be a useless thread as well.... plat status means little and any upgrades would be incidents that would depend on what was available at that time and most likely have a lot to do with stay history of a specific member.

It would only serve the purpose of setting people up with false expectations.

I had two rooms booked at one of the Park Hyatts under my name during the same time period. My family and myself stayed in these rooms, and I paid for them with my Hyatt card. However, I noticed that I only got credit (in terms of nights and points) for only one of these rooms. Is it because I could not physically stay in both rooms? Yet, I booked them under my name and paid for them. Shouldn't I get credit for both?

You only get credit for 1 room per night. You should get points for both of them.

Mods can we add a Wiki to this thread? There are some questions that are asked a lot so it would be nice to have a FAQ. Also, it would be nice to post links to other important stickies such as the Points FAQs. I was about to do it but didn't want to step on any toes.

Every user can create a wiki, we don't need a mod to do it.

As well, this is supposed to be the flame-free thread for newbies to ask questions without being told to "go search" or "look at the wiki." That's one of the reasons the ambassador program was created - to make sure newbies and newbies to the forum don't get hit with those lines.
