Park South • NYC • joie de vivre [master thread]

Starting a new master thread for this brand new Hyatt option in NYC. Fantastic location.

Anyone stayed here?

I just made a dummy booking, and there seems to be a resort fee. And for now it seems not to be waived for Globalists (as I understand it should be).

why wouldn't it be waived? if you're a globalist, you do not pay resort fee.

How can you tell? My bookings always show the resort fee in the summary and I never have to pay it. On my one prepaid stay, the destination fee was charged at booking and then refunded when I checked out.

The website just doesn't take status into account when computing the total, but the hotel does. I don't know why they don't fix this.

That's unfortunately how *all* bookings work. So it's not conclusive.

(My bookings always show the resort fees, then they get taken off on checkout).

Given they just joined, it's quite possible they are not trained on how to treat elites quite yet.

No... I just booked another Hyatt in New York and there was no resort fee showing in my reservation despite it being prominently mentioned on the general booking page.

I have reservations at 5 different NYC properties over the next few months. All show a destination fee when I look at the detailed breakdown of charges in my reservation. As a Glob, I don't expect to be charged the fee.

If you go under the reservation details and view the full breakdown, the destination fee is not listed there? I've literally never seen that in any of my stays at hotels with resort or destination fees. I've never had to pay it (once a resort fee for one night was accidentally charged to my room, but that was quickly removed when requested), but it's always listed there and included, and shows up as a line item in the "See Full Breakdown" section.

Nice hotel

At the hotel now on a one night stay. I reserved the 1-double bed room at $168/night for the “member” rate. Great rate. Super friendly staff. I was informed at checkin that I have breakfast included. Unclearbif that’s a benefit for all WOH members here. I’m a lowly Discoverist. Room is super small, but suits my purpose and I knew that going in.

Had 2 nights stay here in early August. Room rate is decent.
Not sure if we got any upgrade or not, but the room is one at the end of the hall and appear to be slightly larger than most other rooms based on the map.
There is a separate elevator near our room. However, the front desk told us if we leave the hotel from that elevator in the night, we won't be able to get back in from that entrance. Instead, we would have to walk around the block and re-enter the hotel from its front entrance.
The pillow is very comfy as it provides ideal amount of firmness. Often times, I found default hotel pillows to be either too firm or too soft.
There is also a small box of 4 piece decent quality chocolate in the room. Not sure if that is a globalist amenity or they give that to every one.

The breakfast was a mixed experience. The food was decent and we enjoyed it. But the service was strange.
I dont want to bother you with the details, but basically, upon knowing we have breakfast included (they asked for room number first to check on that), they dropped the food and avoided us like a plague, including a guy who looks like the manager. One thing nice is that they did not ask us to sign anything and just waived us away when we left.
It makes me wonder perhaps the waiters are not receiving tips for tables getting free breakfast, hence the attitude. We know this should not be the case based on WOH term. But being a relative new hotel in the family, I wouldn't be surprised that they are not following that.
Also sides are not covered (which one side should be, based on WOH terms for globalist). It is a small charge so I did not want to waste my time fighting for it.
