Don't Diamonds get automatic upgrade to Club rooms? Shame if the hotel doesn't do that.
This is not true imo.first, the renovations of the regular rooms have started and at least one building is completely done as seen from the non club room I had. Size was not huge but how much time are you in the room?
They do, but when I checked in on Jan 1 there was simply no space available in the Club rooms as it was a long weekend. Fair enough. I asked that they tell me the next day when space became available. They didn't followup and I eventually followed up in the evening and was moved.
Some friends who should have been Hyatt Diamonds had they signed up for the program before their 2 months or so in the Grand Erawan were at the HR Hua Hin the week before me. They agree that this is not a property to go to unless you are in a renovated room. I don't know anything about the renovation schedule, but if some are done then fine. But unless guaranteed a room that is renovated I would never return to this property. I've been twice and enjoyed the first time in 2007 and this time in January 2011. But the old rooms are beyond due for renovation IMO.
As for the size of the room, it depends on the floor. And quite frankly I find it funny when people ask how long you stay in the room. Whether I stay in the room for 30 mins or 300 mins a day, I want a room that I feel comfortable in. The bathroom I felt was pretty spacious, but the bed area I felt was too small. I was offered a room with or without a balcony. I took the room with a balcony. This makes the room significantly smaller and I may have been happier in the larger room. In 2007 we were in a club room without a balcony and it felt spacious. This room felt very small. YMOV. BTW I loved the Phillips clock radio with an iPod connector that was built to support the iPad as well!!

I am getting ready for my trip to Hua Hin and as I sit here at my local Starbucks, I see the Via display and it triggers this question from a coffee addict: what's the caffein situation over there like? Is there an in-room coffee maker with drinkable coffee? A coffee bar of sorts to get a decent espresso drink? How about the club?
The answer I am hoping for is "don't worry", but if needed I'll stock up on some Vias for emergency situations
Hope this helps
Thanks, that makes me happy As long as the "club upgrades are offered at checkin based on availability" email reply I just received was just a formality....
I'd really be disappointed if they made us stay in a regular room fo the first part of our stay and then moved us to the Deluxe Club I booked for the paid part.
If you are a Diamond you will have access to the club regardless of where you stay.
I actually got quite a bad rate at the GH (10% less than the real exchange rate), after getting a good (same as exchange rate) in Hua Hin. This was a few months ago.
I meant to post this in response to a question about costco certs and exchange rates) a bit further up not sure how it ended up here.
Last year we stayed in a Barai Pool Suite. Flawless stay, beautiful property. We will be returning this year and can't wait. Review at http://www.driven2travel.co.uk/hyatt-regency-hua-hin---barai-pool-suite.html
