Hyatt.com charging more for a second adult?

Looking at staying at Hyatt Regency Birmingham. When I put in 2 adults it shows a members advance purchase rate (no breakfast) for £108 a night. However when I change this to just 1 adult it drops to £95. Never seen this before. Is it a glitch?

No. Unlike Hilton, Hyatt doesn't have an explicit spouse (or 2nd guest) stays free policy. Ymmv, when you book for one and show up with two. some places may be okay with it others may not.

I also find similar when a hotel website says "kids stay free" but charge way more when you try to book 2 adults + 1 child.

Simple answer is that you book for 1 and 2 people show up. A few hotels will care (Japan for sure) but most won't. As long as you aren't booking a food-inclusive rate it doesn't matter much.

Europe is very different from the US, where US usually charges per room (and up to 4 adults in some cases), whereas in Europe it is often per guest. While it is slowly changing to a "per room" basis, it seems the UK isn't yet. Switzerland now often has the rates on a per room basis, which makes more sense obviously.

Some European cities also charge per person occupancy 'tax', I've paid that in Paris and Berlin recently.

Some hotels, especially non-US, will charge for more than 1.

Some US properties will charge additional for more than 1 adult. I had encountered this while booking with just me (as a test) and booking for a family of four. This is at a resort in Hawaii.

FWIW, in some countries (especially Japan) a single room truly is a single room. If you tried to put 2 people in it, you would be in for a rude awakening.

Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland also charges $10 more for the 2nd adult in the room.

Darn many times I've travelled solo and booked the room as 2. Wonder if I have overpaid.

OT, but if you book for 2 over at Hilton whilst staying solo, a sympathetic front agent clerk will often let you have double the daily food allowance...
