Check In

While the hotel was certainly bustling as we reached the lobby from the escalators, it didn't seem overly busy, so I was surprised and delighted when Ted at the front desk casually stated "as you can see we're really busy, so we're putting you in our best suite."

I barely paid attention to the rest of the check-in, whereby he confirmed our choice of 1,000 points for our Diamond Amenity and went over the Regency Club hours.

We thanked the agent, took our bags and rode the elevator up to the top floor, taking the long walk down the hall to our room: 1756.

Room

Presently it is marketed as a "Luxury Suite", and contrary to what the front desk told us, it is not quite the nicest suite- that honor would go to the Presidential Suites.

Despite that, we walked in to find the room had been completely renovated, and while not the largest suite in the hotel, it does feature unparalleled views.

I fully intended to comprehensively film and photograph the room, but we were thoroughly exhausted, and we promptly collapsed on the bed for a much needed nap.

We woke up hours later after dark, and I commenced documenting the room:

A bit strange was the giant lamp in the main foyer.  Maybe it had something to do with the music theme of the room, but if so it went over my head.

The foyer itself featured two sitting benches and a display of vinyl records along one of the walls.

Straight ahead of us was the living room, featuring books, a sectional, two chairs with ottomans and a coffee table.

The room also had a wall mounted flat screen TV and attached to a dining nook, where a 3 person dining table faced a second flat screen.  There were also several dozen more books.

To the right of the main foyer was the bedroom, which housed a Hyatt Grand Bed, another television, two nightstands with-you guessed it-more books!

There was also a spacious closet with robes, a safe, and luggage racks.

In the bathroom I found they had removed the jetted tub in favor of an oversized shower and a more private toilet.

There was also a dual vanity with a mirror wrapped in frosted class with lighting behind it.

Another minute perk of the room was that unlike other rooms (featuring Hyatt's standard Kenet M.D amenities), this Luxury Suite was stocked with Pharmacopia soap, shampoo and conditioner.  While I'm far from qualified to tell the difference, these certainly appeared more upscale than the Kenet M.D brand.

Really the coolest part of the room remains the balcony, which I'm convinced offers the best views of all the rooms at the Regency Embarcadero.  There was a chaise, two chairs and a table just outside the bedroom, and a single chair with a table just outside the bathroom.  On one side you could look into the heart of the city, spotting the Transamerica pyramid, while the other side offered brilliant views of the Embarcadero and the Bay Bridge

Overall

Our free upgrade may contribute to a bias, but on top of many other stays here I have to recommend the HR on the Embarcadero to anyone thinking of staying at a Hyatt in the city.  A stunning atrium, comfortable rooms (even if a tad outdated), great views, and convenient access to the Embarcadero and the many piers associated with it make it my favorite of the three downtown.  Not to mention it's also directly next to a street car and the BART station.
