Hyatt hotel via RCI exchange

I have an exchange on hold in RCI for a Hyatt hotel room for a week in August. Does anyone know whether the reservation will be cancelled if I arrive a day late? With timeshares, a call to the front desk always gets the unit saved for our one day late arrival, but I am concerned that the traditional hotel model of canceling a reservation if checkin is not on the scheduled date may lead to arriving one day late and no room being held.
Second question is that the room listed is for two people, and I am wondering if calling the hotel and requesting two queen beds instead of a king bed would be problematic. We will be two adults and two kids on this trip.

RCI Exchange for Hyatt

We've exchanged into several Hyatt Hotels. There would be no problem with arriving the next day, with an advance call.

You should be able to request 2 beds since they are many times 2 people will want 2 beds. I'd suggest a phone call to the hotel asking if they will allow 2 adults and 2 children -- since it does state an occupancy of 2. One time we had a king bed and my grand-daughter came to stay for a couple of the nites. There was no problem getting a roll-away bed for her.

A couple of times we were able to request a mini-fridge and microwave -- but some rooms are too small to handle those items. Overall we have been happy when they are rooms that would go for upwards of $200 per night.
