Arriving in the dark at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco I had a little fun when I knew better than my driver where the hotel was located. A quick trip around the block and were back at the front of the hotel. Facing a complex set of works requiring me to navigate carefully to the entrance. The next morning I saw the huge fence as well as a good range of local shops.
The atrium of the hotel is spectacular with both a huge wall of lights and the enormous ball of twine (!) drawing your eyes up to the floors of bedrooms
Check-in was quick and the agent advised that he had a nice room for me. It was on the top floor and as very much a person won over by a great view I was hoping for something interesting.
to room 1740:
Opening the door I was met with a huge sitting room….
Two sofas and two easy chairs and a dining table:
There was a kitchen and a beautifully appointed bedroom:
Complete with a PC and printer:
The bathroom had a huge tub, seperate shower and wash stand
The bedroom doors opened on to a private balcony which overlooked Market Street and had views of the Bay Bridge. Night time views were a little limited, but I could see the Cable Cars below:
Along Market Street:
I went up in the lift to the Regency Club which occupies what used to be a revolving restaurant. I had not stayed at the property for many years and so was pleased to see the new, enhanced offering. There was a reasonable amount of seating with excellent views. The usual cold offering was laid out to help yourself:
The area featured a couple of super comfy chairs:
Good views of the Ferry Building
The service was friendly and attentive and I wish I had more time to linger, or had arrived the night before a little earlier.
However, it was a super upgrade and has won my heart away from the Grand Hyatt San Francisco.
The BART was soon wisking me back to the airport from the station which is just a few steps away from the entrance.
