So I am just about finished booking my first award trip for June of 14. I am staying at a lot of Hyatt properties. I have spent most of my time this past year working on how to get and redeem the points but now am faced with a new task for my trip, logistics. I have read in the past about club lounge access and what not but never really payed attention to it because that was not my focus/goal at the time. I have done a little research online and see that some Hyatts (not all?) have lounges for elite members. Both my wife and I have the Hyatt credit card so we are platinum. We were thinking about doing a diamond status challenge right before our trip since we are staying at so many properties. Would that make a difference? Would we get access to the lounges? I see that some times people need to pay. Would we need to pay for breakfast if we don't go in the lounge? We are staying at the Park Hyatt Tokyo, Grand Hyatt Tokyo, Park Hyatt Maldives, and the Park Hyatt Dubai. I apologize for the "newbie" gold passport questions in advance.
