Hyatt 48 Lex Review

As you remembered, I had a one night stay at the Hyatt 48 Lexington near Grand Central, New York City. The hotel is conveniently located 5 blocks from Grand Central and 3 blocks from 51st subway station.

I used 15,000 Hyatt points for the award night and I got a Diamond status trial via Hilton Gold match.
