The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort on Ka’anapali beach in Lahaina was where we spent four nights on our big vacation for the year. I was pretty excited because I enjoy Hyatt hotels. A buddy of mine is a Globalist member (top tier elite) with the World of Hyatt program so I utilized his Guest of Honor benefit. This grants the guest most of the same benefits that a Globalist would receive. At the HR Maui, this includes Regency Club access for continental breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres, discounted/free valet parking, and room upgrades (or so I thought). Before having a kid, I was a Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond member so I’m pretty familiar with the benefits. I was looking forward to getting another taste of the good life at this resort but it’s possible I set my expectations a little too high.
