My Hyatt Diamond amenity bonanza.

I spent last weekend in Los Angeles with one of my best friends.

We stayed at the Andaz Hollywood and had a very mixed experience from night to night (review coming soon!), but one thing was just simply great: the Hyatt Diamond amenity.

If you are a Hyatt Diamond member, you have a choice of receiving 1,000 bonus Gold Passport points per stay or selecting a welcome amenity with each stay. The amenity varies by property, but typically includes either a beverage, or an hors d’oeuvre, or sometimes -if you’re lucky -both.

We got lucky.

Normally, I just take the 1,000 bonus points, but since this was a girlfriend getaway weekend, I decided to choose the wine and cheese.

For our own personal happy hour, a Hyatt employee arrived with a yummy bottle of wine and a delicious-looking platter of cheese and grapes, but as he was setting the wine glasses down on the marble countertop, he dropped one, and it shattered! He was mortified, and insisted on bringing us ANOTHER platter of cheese and grapes, plus a bottle of pink sparkling wine.

He brought up some milk and cookies as well, for a midnight snack.

Best 1,000 points ever.

What’s been your favorite Hyatt amenity?


  1. Cupcakes at the Hyatt Regency Maui. I think back to that trip and the thing I remember most fondly are the delicious cupcakes…

    The presentation of the milk and cookies is an adorable bonus.
