UPDATE: Grand Hyatt Washington DC will be undergoing renovation from February 1 through July 31, 2024. Therefore, the Grand Club is temporarily closed. However, the hotel offers exclusive dining alternatives. See the photo below.

While staying at the Grand Hyatt Washington DC as a Globalist member, I received complimentary access to the Grand Club, where I can enjoy breakfast in the morning and small plates in the evening daily. 

The Grand Club at Grand Hyatt Washington DC exceeded my expectation. Therefore, I recommend it to World of Hyatt Globalist members or those who want to use the Hyatt Club Lounge Access Awards to redeem for the Club level rooms. The Grand Club is worth it, especially when you want to save money on food and drinks while visiting the Capitol of the United States – Washington DC.

  1. Has anyone had luck using the Club Lounge Access Awards while also being on a Free Night Certificate? I was told I can’t use both Awards at the same time and there’s no work around but wasn’t sure if anyone has any success getting both applied at the same time.
