This is odd. I couldn’t find this offer.  I found offers for the Omni and the Hilton and Kimpton Hotels, But not the Hyatt.

The same offers aren't available to everyone.  Also, sometimes offers are only available for a limited period of time.  If signed up for they will last until expiration but no new signups are allowed.

They don't charge for those who book through OnPeak.  I asked the desk twice regarding that before checking out.  However, if you check out through the app, the fees might be there.  I know the app did not deduct the parking discount.  To make sure they did not charge anything they shouldn't, I went to the desk to check out.

It looks like we need to call Hyatt again.   Could you please remind me of the parking discount we were supposed to get because I don't think we got that either.

I also went to check out downstairs instead of the app, I asked for an itemized bill and they said that as well about the destination fee being waved as part of the comic con block :)!

Never stayed with MMM before, when do they finalize the charge on your card?

My reservation has disappeared from my account completely and the panding auth dropped off.  ???

We stayed at the MGH and was given a room on the end overlooking the bay towards the Midway carrier, very nice hotel except they were remodeling the lobby. Great location because it was where I could pick up my volunteer T-shirt and right next to seaport village for swag swap dinner. I got the $10 off self parking and some credits to their bar for my refreshments

What kind of room do you choose with your other reservation? the kind of  $ and view (city, bay) you choose matters? or what kind of reservations have combined?

That is very true and I have already learned that lesson along with the fact that it is also up to the hotel if they want to charge you for an upgrade up and above your status ( Gold, Diamond, Friends & Family) reward. I have been upgraded to corner room queen  and king room, both with and without paying an upgrade fee and the higher floor rooms with views are more expensive. I have better luck with the Bayfront with a lot of the hotel front desk staff and management knowing / recognizing me from previous stays.

We also stayed at MGH this year.  At check in I was able to upgrade to a room with two queen beds facing the convention center with a great view.

Mine did the exact same thing but then popped up as a confirmed final charge today. Yours should show up anytime now. I was also at MMM.

I traded down to one bed because I was by myself.

This was my first time at MGH.  Despite the longer walk--which helped me with my daily exercise goals--I found it so much better than MMM.  I particularly liked having drinks and food at Sally's, which was shockingly uncrowded most of the time, and an occasional nightcap at the 40th floor bar.  MMM's common areas are just too congested.

I've never put MGH on my hotel request, but I may next year.

Right?!?  I love MGH :)

Enjoyed my stay at MGH as well. I will post a review later but I didn’t find the distance to the convention center (or even Indigo Ballroom) that bad, and the fulfillment room being in my hotel prevented me from getting annoyed at having to walk all the way there only to find out the ticket was for a stupid poster. The only thing I really didn’t like was that it was a bit of a hike from grocery/convenience. (Which to be fair still wasn’t too far, but I usually grab a few jugs of water and carrying those back did get tiring.)

I moved over to the Bristol for Sun/Mon nights and think this would still be my preferred con hotel. I asked why it wasn’t on the con block this year but the employee wasn’t sure and even seemed surprised, since she said the hotel was definitely full with Comic-Con attendees.
