Two weeks back I wrote about the Hyatt Regency Tokyo Point Card, a completely separate system from the Hyatt Gold Passport system, specifically for use at the spas and restaurants of the Hyatt Regency Tokyo. After that, I decided to actually apply for the card myself.
If you’re at the hotel, getting the card is fairly simple: just fill out the paper form and give it to staff at one of the restaurants, and they’ll give you the card right on the spot. But doing it remotely was a bit more tricky. First I filled in an online form (this step, like all of the others, was all in Japanese) requesting a written form. This came in the mail three days later. I filled out this form, placed it in the postage-paid envelope provided by the hotel, and sent it back. Three days later, the card arrived at my house:
The backside contains information on your enrollment date, the last date you used the card, and how many points are currently available. Apparently this information is updated every time you use the card!
The cool card alone was enough to make me happy, but the card also came with a whole bunch of coupons for use at the restaurants at the Hyatt Regency Tokyo:
- 100 points with the purchase of certain sweets at the Pastry Shop.
- 50% off drinks before 8pm at Eau de Vie.
- Free dessert at Caffe with purchase of Summer Casual Beer Plan.
- 10% off weekday Dim Sum set at Jade Garden.
- Free sparkling wine with purchase of Special Kaiseki Dinner at Kakou.
- Free drink with weekday purchase of Anago Meal at Omborato.
The coup de grâce was the birthday coupon: 1000 points with any purchase at any Hyatt Regency Tokyo restaurant or bar!
Perhaps I’ll see if I can combine that coupon with half-off drinks sometime, and see if I can find something that compares to the Timeless Passion Cocktail…
