Yes. Every room has a safe which even includes a plug for you to charge your laptop while you secure it.
How do I get a room on the party floor?
Make a normal reservation and contact the BayCon Hotel Division at to have your room moved to the party floor. The party floor sells out early so make sure to reserve your room soon.
Can I bring my cat/dog/iguana/drama llama?
No. The Hyatt Regency is a Pet Free Zone, though documented and jacketed service animals are welcome.
Can I get there on public transit?
Yes; VTA's Great America Station is across from the Convention Center. This is served by the Mountain View-Winchester Light Rail line. (This is not the same as Amtrak/ACE's Great America Station, which is closer to VTA's Lick Mill Station.) If you're coming from Caltrain, you'll most likely want to transfer at Mountain View.
Is there a shuttle from the airport?
The hotel does not provide a courtesy shuttle. The least expensive way to get here from SJC is to take the free Airport Flyer to the Metro/Airport Station, then transfer to a Mountain View train.
Whom do I contact with questions or problems?
E-mail and our elite team of troubleshooters will help answer all of your queries, ponderings, or problems.
