The Hyatt Regency is located just outside the financial district in downtown. It is right next to a major shopping center that seems to have every store and major brand name there is. Along with the shopping center, it is also very close to numerous restaurants, most of which are on the high end. It is also only about a 10-minute cab ride or so from the Fisherman's Wharf and other tourists spots within the Bay area, so it is a good location if you plan to hit up those areas.
The hotel is very nice, and the room I was in was spacious but expensive. I was in a standard room, which ran close to $300 a night. A grilled cheese sandwich and a bowl of tomato soup from room service ran me about $20. My room had a full room service menu, wireless Internet access, minibar, cable TV, and every other standard amenity one can image.
The Hyatt also had a concierge service, the employees of which were very knowledgeable about the area, and a restaurant and bar within the hotel. I didn't bother eating there since it didn't look all that attractive. I decided to venture out into the city and try something more San Franciscan. I also had an amazing view of the Bay Bridge from my balcony. For you photographers out there, a picture of this bridge in the morning with the surrounding fog makes for a great souvenir! A cab ride (with tip) from the airport to the hotel runs about $40. All in all, the hotel is nice, but the location is what you really paying for. I probably wouldn't stay there again, opting for something a bit less expensive.

The room is large, with odd angles and shapes because of its architectural design, and the king-size bed was soft, but very comfortably supportive. I had a nice sleep on the bed. The water pressure was very high and I really felt the difference using the shower massager on it's strong pulse setting. The faucet has a elegant design but uses quite a lot of water.
There's a $1 charge for local calls and a minibar with an electronic lock with computerized sensors that will automatically charge your room for any items touched or removed. To use the fridge for your own personal items, call extension 54 for the fridge to be emptied for a $10 fee.
A small ice bucket is provided, and ice machines are at the opposite end of where the elevators are located.
Fitness room with treadmills, access with your swipe card. No swimming pool here, but there's a YMCA and a health club for guest use, each a block away at a daily rate of $10.
We booked our room here using Priceline.com, along with the aid of Bidding for Travel which helps with strategy, not overbidding, placing bids on Priceline through Amazing-Bargins.com as a way to support Bidding for Travel's free service, but I'd rather just find a good location at a better-value price, without having to jump through hoops with Priceline.
The hotel is nice, but they nickel-and-dime you on everything. Nothing is inexpensive at this hotel. A lot of conventions are booked here.
If you feel hungry late at night and don't want to spend for their hotel room service, there are a couple of late-night places right across the street, facing the entrance to the hotel. One is a Middle Eastern place serving foods based from that region, and another is a 7-11-type place.
Checkout is noon.
