I was there as a guest on a globalist account in August. Got kosher breakfast from MMFF (regular menu). They said it'd be a $25 allowance per person but didn't bill us when we went $20-30 over allowance.

Does Hyatt allow any member (or at least a Diamond member) to reserve award nights without sufficient points in the member's account?

globalists can do this if stay is greater than 7 days out

Correct

The check-in agent claimed it was an upgrade but it wasn't a suite.

Has anyone had success with Kosher Breakfast at Andaz WeHo?
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

Does anyone know if a Guest of Honor has any chance of being upgraded to a "premium" suite, or is there a hard rule that the suite needs to be labeled as "Standard?" This would be for a complimentary upgrade, not an upgrade cert.

Great news being released by all the bloggers. Hyatt listened to our complaints and all DSUs earned this year will be valid until the next Feb. Hyatt continues to listen and improve and for Top tier elites they are by far the best program.

Their only downfall is their small footprint but they are opening lots of new locations.

There are many more downfalls than that.

-No points amenity
-No 5th night free awards.
-No path to top-tier through credit card spend
-High night requirement for top-tier status
-Meaningless mid-tier status
-Hotels block redemptions when they should be available as per paid rates.
Etc.

-No points amenity That is offset by the free nights at 30 and 60 (55)
-No 5th night free awards. that hurts but its not the end of the world as most of the time you dont want to stay in the same hotel 5 nights in a row either way
-No path to top-tier through credit card spend its hard to get but once you get it its awesome that was my point
-High night requirement for top-tier status its hard to get but once you get it its awesome that was my point
-Meaningless mid-tier status I'm referring to the top status
-Hotels block redemptions when they should be available as per paid rates.
Etc. there are ways around this

Expiring free nights don't make up for the points amenity.

again it doesnt make up but lets take a look at SPG you can get 500 SPG points but no free breakfast so what would you rather have?

Marriott gives 500 points too so 30 marriott nights is 5k SPG which is nice but Id rather have a category 1-4 hyatt night that now expires in 6 months followed by a 1-7

Hilton gives tons of points but their elite recognition is horrible

-No path to top-tier through credit card spend

Perhaps this is precisely why they can afford to be so generous.
