I’ve been to Hyatt Regency Coconut Point many times and have always considered it to be a five-star hotel. Even at 20,000 points it’s a bargain, because if I used 20,000 UR points to defray any other travel costs, I would only get $300 worth of travel. That’s about the cost of your average Hampton Inn in Florida during the height of the season! Of course, as you pointed out, it’s not as good a deal as the Grand Hyatt Kauai for 25,000 points (another favorite of mine) but unless you’re on the west coast it’s a much shorter trip. Either way, UR points which can be transferred to Hyatt or Hyatt points earned the old-fashioned way are the best travel currency around.
You guys know the lounge membership does NOT include Intercontinental or Regeant lounges!check out the fine print!
Well, I guess it does…but only the lounge itself… not the list of amenities you get with the club lounge room like you get with Marriott/Hilton/Hyatt
Terms say: Annual Lounge Membership does not include Club REGENT or Club InterContinental amenities or services beyond the physical lounge, e.g., free pressing, farewell amenity, airport transportation, etc.
So you should get the food etc. in the lounge. I don’t see how this is different from lounge access with Hilton or Hyatt etc.
