portions are good sized I could not finish mine good quality too.
I went this morning right when it opens at 7am, nobody at hash house said anything about that and I ordered two, and I just went to VIP registration for a confirmation, they said nothing had changed regarding two drinks, just no alcoholic drinks

Glob terms are juice and coffee. I would say as long as you adhere to the other parts of the terms, insist on juice and coffee. If they are comping you entree, appetizer, extra bread etc beyond the terms, then just accept what you're given. Some places are really good about going beyond so customers who aren't flagrant free stuff abusers know to just accept if they don't quite adhere to something like juice AND coffee if they already go above, but some places try and wriggle out of even meeting the minimum. Don't think that's the case here...yet (absurdly predictable this trend as already stated) but if you get 1 entree and want juice and coffee, I would get it and show the terms at check out if need be. Or also like many, if you can't be bothered to get what the terms state you are owed in benefits, just let it go and pay anyway. Maybe pay for a few other people too, to really show them how valuable your time is and how little you care about benefits.

Bahahahahahahaha. Hilarious. I can imagine the scene and tantrums being thrown by people who are shocked they are limiting take out for 4 "guests" for the 1 person ghost staying in the 20 room.

well was some complains 2 weeks ago but now the people who were gaming the system are not there anymore. Those asking for take away were single travellers just asking for convenience / remote work.

but anyway they are doing right now.

I rolled in right before 1100AM. Took a seat at the bar - there was a long line waiting to get in and I did n to want to be late. Two guys off to the right were trying to get both meals comped, even though only one was a Globalist (and clearly was not.a family). The guy told him no.

Not sure what are you trying to say, meals at hash house MUST room charge in order to get wipe off later, really no different when you go to any other hyatt properties, no meals are getting comped on the spot at any restaurant, of course the guy told him no, and being family or not is really irrelevant as long as you registered two people in your room, then you get both meals wipe off, any bills discrepancy you go to front desk to resolve

Walked in today and just ordered coffee, OJ, and my entree and then let the server know I am using my Hyatt status to room charge it. Brought the receipt to cashier who then didn't raise any questions about the two drinks, so I am guessing given that it's official T&C as long as there's no proactive pushback it should be fine?
