Poll: Grand Hyatt New York – what sort of room did my suite certificate secure?

In recent months it has become harder and harder to use the 4  Suite Upgrades given to Diamond Gold Passport members annually. Last year I used one for a stay in this membership year. (You are allowed to do that as long as you make the reservation before 28 February in the year the upgrade was earned.)

As I don’t stay very often for more than one night and so I decided to apply the upgrade for my current two night stay at the Grand Hyatt New York. Checking in they confirmed the suite and offered a better one if I could wait two hours. I was tired so took what I was told was a Junior Suite. (The upgrade had been confirmed over 4 months in advance).

Now, however, looking at their web site it looks more like my room is an Executive King. It’s a zig-zag room so a little hard to describe as it wraps around a stairwell.

So, for reference these are the Grand Hyatt’s images of an Executive King taken from their web site:

This looks like a standard square room but the decor, sofa and table as all exactly as in my room.

This is their description of a Junior Suite:

This is larger, has a table with four high chairs, a large sofa with a foot stool, all of which are missing from my room.

These are images taken from the room allocated.

So which sort of room did the Grand Hyatt give me?

  1. I think it’s a Junior “Suite” because of that “doorway” to the bedroom. I’ve stayed there before and was upgraded to an executive king as a diamond. The room looks similar, but there was no type of division between where the bed was and the living area. I laughed when I saw the toilet…looks like something out of a high school (as does the shower). I recently stayed at the Andaz 5th Avenue and used points to upgrade a paid rate to what they call a Splash Suite. That’s a proper suite–high ceilings, massive living room then a massive bathroom with huge tub that you walk through to get to a nice-sized bedroom with amazing views. Really worth a shot there and definitely worth paying a bit (even a lot) more.
