About two years ago I visited the Grand Hyatt, San Francisco during its refurbishment. The Review is here. I was pleased to be able to return for a few days last month. Again I applied one of my Gold Passport Diamond Suite upgrades and received a nice mid-level room.

I often find that using the suite upgrades doesn’t get the best room, and whilst this was no more than average suite, I was satisfied. Would I have preferred a bay view? Of course, but comps are comps and I took this view:

The suite is two double rooms, with two full bathrooms, presumably from when it was two separate rooms. The living room is therefore the size of a normal bedroom, with floor to ceiling windows. There is plenty of desk space, opposite the sofa and next to the large TV:

There is a fridge, which was empty when I arrived, for supplies:

The bedroom is large, and very light, because of the windows mentioned above. There is a day bed by the window, which I suspect people use primarily for luggage.

The bathrooms have either a large bath, or a shower and so you can choose depending on personal preference.

The Grand Club is well located and offers a good range of warm and cold items for breakfast:

For breakfast there are scrambled eggs with a selection of items that you can add – cheese, mushrooms, onion etc.

Although the hotel was pretty full there were always seats when I visited – morning and evening:

On my previous visit the lobby was not finished, but it is pretty impressive now complete. Lots of wood and autumn tones gives it a classy quality which I liked.

Concierge Desk:

The only real problem was the subway construction going on a little further down the hill, at the Market Street end. The noise of construction started early on the Saturday and work me. I imagine it was worse as I was on that side of the hotel:

One of the effects of the construction is that the entrance to the Muni/Bart closest to the hotel (and the Apple Store) is closed. This means that you have to either cross Market Street or use the elevator from the street on the North side of Market.

Some other views from the room:

So, all round a good stay at a property that I have always enjoyed and probably rates as my most visited Hyatt.

    Welcome to San Francisco. A nice place for a beer – i know you are a fellow Brit – is the Tunnel Top at Bush over Stockton. More good bats are down on Polk. Good tapas at Hyde and Union. Have a great time.
