When I arrived at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco from the Ferry Building trying to find the entrance, I underestimated how large it was. I got lost looking for the lobby to check in, and it turned out that it was two floors above street level. I pressed the elevator button, which transported me to one of the largest and most futuristic lobbies I’ve ever seen.
The lobby alone has a front desk, gym, mini market, restaurant, lounging areas, and a 35-foot-high art installation. Even with these amenities, it doesn’t feel crowded thanks to a wealth of open space in between. My room matched the spaciousness: At 589 square feet, the suite felt bigger and more open than my 670 square feet apartment, and includes two bathrooms with a shower stall in the bedroom.
