Hyatt San Francisco is helping the San Francisco Symphony celebrate its 100th birthday with a special holiday package through Dec. 31.
The deal: The San Francisco Hyatt for the Holidays at the Symphony “Amour Package” includes a 25% discount on holiday season Symphony concert tickets; a reduced room rate and package amenities of breakfast for two, Champagne and strawberries and a 2:00 p.m. late checkout (valued at $78). If booking online, enter offer code: SYM100; by phone request the “Symphony Amour package.”
Although the deal is available at four Hyatts, I tested availability at the Hyatt Regency at Embarcadero Center, due to its proximity to Davies Symphony Hall at the Civic Center. The deal is also available at Hyatt at Fisherman’s Wharf, Grand Hyatt (on Stockton St.) and the Hyatt Regency at SFO. Davies Symphony Hall is easily accessible via BART trains and MUNI buses from all four Hyatts.

Tested: The deal was not available on Dec. 13 and 14, but seemed widely available on other December dates. Friday through Sunday night stays seemed significantly less expensive, priced closer to $200 per night rather than $300+. On Dec. 17, the “SYM100” package cost $219 versus $169 for the Hyatt Daily Rate, so you are paying $40 for the package’s amenities. On December 17, the Symphony is performing Handel’s “Messiah” at 7:30 p.m. (Tickets cost $30-$135, so your 25% discount could save you about $31 on a $135 ticket.)
Caveat: When I called Hyatt Central Reservations twice to test this deal, one reservation specialist couldn’t find it and the other could, so I’m recommending you book directly online or call the specific Hyatt where you want to stay. The phone number of the Hyatt Regency/Embarcadero is listed below.
Info: Hyatt Regency (Embarcadero), (415) 788-1234. Use code “SYM100” to book online or by phone. If calling, they also call the deal “Hyatt for the Holidays at the Symphony.”
