Getting off the plane at San Francisco International was fun – mainly as there was quite a queue building for the return flight back to JFK.
Meanwhile, my mind was focusing on the small room and how to get to the hotel. A comfort break later, and it was just focusing on getting to the hotel.
With no luggage to pick up, I headed straight through the magic door.
And whilst I could see signs for various things, I couldn’t pull up a shuttle bus timetable. I therefore swallowed my pride and another $20 for the ride to the Hyatt Regency San Francisco.
Yes, I could had gone for a Uber or a Lyft – but my mind wasn’t exactly focused on it.

I wandered into the hotel, and followed the signs towards reception.
With the clock pretty close to midnight, I checked in. My card was swiped for incidentals after a short wait to check in
With that I headed to the room – and noticed it face inwards to the atrium, as opposed to outwards. Normally, I’d be annoyed about this – but as its a free night, and also I’m staying for a night, I wasn’t in the mood to kick up a fuss.
The other thing was – I was pretty tired still.
Let’s take a look at the room. It’s a pretty standard Hyatt Room – and that’s no bad thing to be honest. It had two twin rooms (a little much for a night like this), a big TV and the usual amenities
One feature I loved was the night-light that self-activated when you got near it. A good thing to have when you’re wandering bleary-eyed in a hotel room you don’t know inside-out.
Plugs and USB Sockets were plentiful. Except I had to move the lamp forward a lot to cope with the oversized travel adaptor I fly with.
The bathroom is a typical airport hotel room one – in other words, it has a shower for a bath. It has the usual Hyatt Kentt MD products in the bathroom – as I’ve said in the past, nothing too offensive (but I do miss the White Ginger from oh so many years ago).
I popped some TV on (BBC America had an X-Files Marathon… I wasn’t exactly interested), and I watched, typed, and eventually dozed off
And woke up with the morning. And dozed off again.
By 9am, I was fully awake again. With a little time repacking my rubbish into my bag (as well as a post or two), I was almost ready for the off.
I headed to the check-out, and confirmed that all requirements had been satisfied and no further charges were required.. That done, I headed to the shuttle bus.
Overall: Hmm. Whilst this property was good in the past, there was something lacking this time. Maybe it was because I arrived at just past mid-night, or the inside facing room. But for a crash-pad, it did the job.
Although at $265 cash.. It’s more than a little steep for the Hyatt Regency San Francisco.
Next: Into San Francisco on the BART, the Cable Car and the Intercontinental Mark Hopkins.
