    I didn't see any thread for GH NY on the master list, so I figured I'd start a new one. This is not a review post, but rather a question.

    I just booked a room at this property, and out of my curiosity, I clicked on the eStandby Upgrade button. One of the choices is the following:

    I wonder what this upgrade offer really means. Does this mean an upgrade to a bigger room, but sans a "real bed", and as a compensation you will be given a 20% off the room rate?

    *Confused*

    Perhaps someone from Hyatt can clarify? Thanks!

    Wasn't sure, is this a " real upgrade "...? No real king sized bed?:confused:

    Well, what's strange is that they make you pay $5 for an upgrade that is essentially a downgrade. The only benefit I see from this "upgrade" is the 20% off room rate.

    I stayed in a room like this at the Hyatt in Austin, TX. Essentially it connects to a normal room making a large suite with the connected "upgrade" room providing your living room/dining room/bar kitchen. Sounds like they are trying to use the living room section as a room in itself.

    I suppose the question would be- is sleeping on a rollaway worth saving 20% off room rate for (in my case, it would be $240/night as opposed to $300/night).

    Seeing the issues with the bed, IMHO, that's not worth it, prefer in a Hyatt a real bed and would not take this so-called upgrade. [ Even with the savings in mind ]

    The question remains, " why would someone want to stay in the living room section of a suite and sleep on a rollaway bed there " ??? I would prefer them to offer a real suite upgrade with a " real " bedroom attached.;)

    Did your living room section have a full bath with shower?

    This was over two years ago, so all I can remember for sure is that it had its own bathroom. I am pretty sure that it had a toilet/shower/bath, but I don't think I ever used it.

    My little brothers (aprox 8 and 10 at the time) slept in the living room on roll-away beds.

    This is a room that they mainly use for "break out" meetings.

    It will be nicer tan the average room...but you'll be on a rollaway. Your call.

    Sleeping on a rollaway should be worth more then 20% off.

    Extra space in NY should be worth 20% more. ;)
