Around mid-May 2014, as I was trying to get the number of nights for the Hyatt Diamond Challenge (I got the information about the challenge from One Mile at a Time), I ended up staying at the Hyatt Embarcadero Center in San Francisco to check out the Diamond member's benefits and to fulfill the number of nights requirements for the Hyatt Diamond Challenge. Here's my impression on the hotel.
- The room is a decent size. I was upgraded to Regency Club room on the top floor.
- The view that I got was of the bay which is very nice.
- The room that I got wasn't cleaned properly, so when I open up the fridge I saw something there (that's not mine). I didn't complain about it though.
- The location of the TV isn't good because the bed doesn't actually face the TV, so you have to be on your side to get to watch the TV. Also, TV is not HD and the quality of the picture is quite poor.
- Note: They are upgrading all TVs to be HD in the near future (2014)
- The internet in the room is very fast and the amenities are standard of Hyatt Regency
- One of the best views of the regency club I've had anywhere
- The food spread for breakfast was really good. There was at least one hot options, and the cold cut for breakfast was really nice. Pastries are also really nice there as well.
- The dinner spread was even more amazing because there are usually 2 or more hot options, and they are very fresh and tasty. The desserts are served afterwards and they are usually really good (not as good as Hyatt Regency SFO dessert, however)
- You can see a 360 degree view of San Francisco and it's very romantic.
- There are a couple of massage chairs in the club. It was a good addition.
- The pricing at this Hyatt is a bit odd. It's more expensive on the weekdays and less expensive on the weekend (which was surprising).
