I am going this weekend. I'd call that close in :). Did you have any success?
I tried about a month out at which point they didn't want to confirm an ocean suite, but a couple of days before our arrival I emailed again and was confirmed.

I actually emailed the reservation manager, not the GM.

do they verify when you use a government rate?

Likely YMMV with all rates.

In regards to combining points from 2 Hyatt accounts, there is a once per 30 day rule. Is that rule for both of the accounts, or only the one account that's getting all the points transferred into ?

How soon after my stay and where would I be able to view the amenity kit + other points received from a given stay?

Not sure which is the proper thread for this question, but I'll try here:
I'd like to stay at the Grand Hyatt in Kauai for 4 nights, but in a suite, as I have 2 children. I have 2 signup nights, 15k Hyatt points and many UR points, but I dont have Diamond status, only Plat. What would be the most cost efficient way to book? And, is it possible to transfer URs to a Diamond Member who has a DSU, book my first night with C&P and DSU through his account, and book the subsequent nights using my nights and C&P and stay in the suite?
TIA, I hope I was not too confusing!  :)

You can use extra Hyatt points to upgrade.

that should work but there are no guarantees. they might make you leave after you c & P nights but I guess in your situation it doesnt hurt to try

I checked the daily rate for the first day, which is the only way to upgrade with points, and it's $500 before tax. It would be much cheaper to pay 12.5k UR and $150...

Can someone PM me with the Hyatt Diamond Line? Regular Hyatt line has long wait and I haven't gotten my diamond card yet.

ETA: Got it.

When using Diamond suite upgrades, is there such a thing as a distinction between availability for a DSU for a paid reservation and a C&P reservation? Hyatt is saying that hotel only has DSU available for paid stays but not C&P.

Then apparently the answer is yes.
