Could someone else transfer there own ultimate rewards points into my hyatt account?
Theoretically but not a good idea unless it's your domestic partner (chase rule). Otherwise you're asking for A/A

How strict would Hyatt be in regard to exceeding room occupancy limit by 1 or 2? Is it something I should confirm before I get there, or is that going to raise a red flag?

I have 3 rooms booked at Hyatt Capital Gate AUH, 2 of them have DSUs.

I booked a room with a free night and then emailed someone in the "Executive Office Administration" at the specific hotel about paying for a room upgrade. We agreed to a cash price to upgrade to a suite, but he told me that he modified my reservation in the hotel's internal system and that it won't show up online or by calling HGP and nor can he email me an updated confirmation. Even when I called the front desk at the hotel, they think I'm in a standard room.

Sounds like I shouldn't trust this guy. (No, I haven't paid the cash yet.)

I'm assuming the cash would be paid on arrival? What could go wrong.
I personally like that kind of management,  There greediness tend to side with me

I assume that (or checkout) but what could go wrong? I get there and the clerk says we have no record of a suite in your reservation, and all our suites are booked.
Come again? What is he doing that's greedy?

Dunno what your deal with them was but I have had management do things off system so that they can pocket it

Oh. I didn't get that impression at all. He listed me all the options of upgrading and how much it would cost and even mentioned tax. I don't think he would mention tax if he was planning on pocketing it...

I just called Hyatt and they confirmed that there are 2 separate reservations systems. The general one, and then each hotel's individual system. Rep said that if a hotel makes a change in their private system, it won't be reflected in the main system. So I guess it does make sense.

8k points or 4k + $55. I'm guessing the c&p makes more sense?

Depends on the value you hold your points have and your mindset about them. I personally would go for straight points but I'm likely in the minority

looked into it some more. seems c&p makes less sense since I get the 20% back on points.

This is no different than your average guy selling miles. A bit risky but wouldnt say your asking for an A/A.

Transfer his UR to his Hyatt. Then his hyatt to your hyatt.
