To save you time, here's a sum up of this thread. If you're getting married close to NYC (yes, Brooklyn is in NYC) - just go to the Andaz 5th. :)

REMEMBER: You must take your kesubah with you, or give it to someone to hold for you. The kallah has to know where it is.

you can use a dsu for a Jr. Suite and points and cash
Once you're paying $300+15K for cat 7 C+P you might as well do the $500 Andaz for the full Splash suite vs a PH Jr suite IMHO.
Plus Andaz gives kosher brekkie without a fuss.

I hear the opposing argument (especially if you would use the PH pool), I just wasn't blown away by the PH.

See ETA above.
Personally I didn't find PH NYC service to be special in any way. PHs in North America are nothing like their international versions which I love.

$300 hyatt GC can be had for good discounts online. I personally disagree but I'll let ya know  ;)

specs (size wise) are pretty close..

http://newyork.park.hyatt.com/en/hotel/rooms/suites.html

BH we can afford points wise both options for many special occasions..

Also depends if you are staying in a PH city hotel or PH resort.

$500 Hyatt GC also has good discounts online.
For me the free minibar+kosher breakfast+higher tier suite tips it in favor of the Andaz, but you won't go wrong either way.

Where can I find discounted GC other then card cash?
PH offered me over the phone a suite for $400 + 25 or 30k (can't remember) points.
I declined

Very smart move IMO. Why waste those points when you can get a DSU for free? The hassle of booking through someone else is obviously a factor, but nowhere near the cost of 25K points.

Hi @Yehuda,
 
It was wonderful speaking with you yesterday – thank you for reaching out. I checked on our points plus cash availability for the summer for you, and unfortunately, we are unable to extend the points plus cash option for your requested dates, as the hotel is no longer offering this booking option. Please do let me know if I can help you in any other way. 
 
Best wishes,

Check into Hyatt Regency Jersey City. I once got someone there into the Bridal Suite (yes, they have a specific Bridal Suite).

not easy to get those. You will most likely end up in a fantastic suite
