This airport is a great place to stay when you have an early departure, or just want to be close to SFO. When the SFO-TPA MR was still out there, I'd fly MCI-SFO on Friday night, stay at the Hyatt, go to TPA on Saturday, return to the Hyatt at 1:30am on Sunday, and then leave at 4:00am for SFO.. Front Desk: The hotel has a line for Platinum & Diamond members, which is useful when there are more than a few people in the normal line. Last time I checked in, a soccer convention was in town, so check in took twenty minutes. I've stayed at this hotel a number of times, but only once as a Diamond. I had to ask for the Diamond Amenity form, but the points posted without any hassle (unlike G1) Rooms: As a Diamond, I was given an atrium-view King.. In the past, I had always been given an outside facing room, so I was a bit disappointed. I did get put on the Regency Floor (9), and had access to the lounge. In September, I was given an angled room, which faced SFO and the bay. Many of the rooms have gotten new LCD TVs, but I've seen a few with the bulky CRTs.. Hopefully these will disappear over the next few months! Regency Club: The RC is a great place to meet friends, grab a quick snack, watch planes landing at SFO, or just relax. Around 5pm, Scott brought out salad, cheese, salmon, chicken, pasta, shrimp, and a few other items. Very tasty food! I made a caesar salad, which was delicious.. As I mentioned above, the deck of the RC is great for taking photos! I spent 30 minutes watching many of the international wide-bodies. Shuttle Service: The Hyatt offers complimentary shuttle service to SFO. On the way to the Hyatt, there is one stop at the Marriott. In the early hours of the morning, I've found the shuttle to be very full with guests from the Marriott. To make sure you get a spot on the shuttle, try and stand as close as possible to the area that it stops. I've had some close calls, but being right outside the shuttle door has helped me to get the last spot.. Below is the schedule for the shuttle.
