A Great Hyatt Diamond Amenity: Free Starbucks Coffee

The Hyatt Regency Albuquerque has a really unique Hyatt Diamond perk that I wish other properties would offer.

It’s not a welcome amenity, and isn’t in place of any of the other usual benefits such as complimentary breakfast, etc. It’s in addition to, which makes this really special, even though many would consider it inconsequential.

Upon checking in, I was offered one free grande cup of coffee, or Tazo tea in the full-fledged Starbucks store, located just off of the lobby.

You could receive one free cup per day of your stay, and all you needed to do was charge the bill to your room, where it would be removed at check-out.

I’ve never seen this perk before, and although some hotels offer complimentary coffee in the lobby, here you could actually receive a freshly made cup within the Starbucks itself – for example, the cup that I got retailed for $3-something.

Interestingly, the day I was checking out, I was craving a cup of coffee too – and this saved me from having to purchase one myself. Sure, it’s inconsequential in terms of what the perk is worth, but I really appreciate this hotel going out of the way to offer it.

The Hyatt Regency Albuquerque has most King rooms retail for around $100-ish a night, or you can use 5,000 Gold Passport Points, or 2,500 points and $50 cash using a Cash and Points rate. Many consider this to be one of the most valuable 5,000 point Category 1 properties there is.

I’ll have a full review of the property soon, but wanted to pass on this benefit to those who maybe staying here soon.
