As explained in the Hyatt Diamond benefits, it includes:
Receive exclusive access to the Regency Club or Grand Club lounge featuring complimentary continental breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres2. Enjoy daily complimentary full breakfast in hotels without a club lounge
And the terms for this state
Daily complimentary full breakfast inclusive of one entrée (or standard breakfast buffet), juice and coffee (tax, gratuity and service charges included) will be provided to the member and each registered guest in the room, maximum four (4) people. For stays at Hyatt Regency Bethesda, daily continental breakfast (tax and gratuity included) will be provided to the member and each guest registered in the room, maximum four (4) people. Breakfast is not valid for in-room dining. Benefit not valid when staying at Hyatt Place properties, Hyatt House properties, or Hyatt Residence Club resorts.
Taking a look at the benefit, it essentially means that if you’re Hyatt Diamond you get Club Lounge access, but if the hotel doesn’t have a lounge, then you get breakfast in the restaurant.
But what if the hotel DOES have a lounge, but you want breakfast in the restaurant? Here’s what I say: It can’t hurt to ask!
I recently stayed at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza hotel, which has a small Regency Club in the lobby. I asked at check-in if that is where breakfast is served and the front desk agent said yes. I then asked if I would be able to take it in the restaurant instead, and sure enough, that was agreed!
I stopped by the club lounge one morning, which was packed, and only had a continental style breakfast. I skipped that and headed to the restaurant where I was able to partake in the $32 breakfast buffet each morning, which had several hot dishes, made to order omelets, and even included a mimosa or a bloody mary.
Well most Diamonds may be satisfied to receive breakfast in the lounge, it can’t hurt to ask at check-in if you can take the breakfast in the restaurant. Sometimes they may say no, but I’m willing to met more often that not you’ll be pleased with the answer.
Have you stayed at any Hyatt’s with club lounges that allow you take breakfast in the restaurant? Feel free to share below!
