Located moments from Melbourne’s bustling central business district and surrounded by some of the city’s most notable sights, such as the Parliament House and St. Patrick’s Cathedral, this Park Hyatt outpost is a practical urban sleep with a magnificent two-story foyer of polished enameled wood, marble and chrome. The lobby is anchored by a grand, sweeping staircase, and it sets the tone for airy interiors, which feature glass, tan and ivory leather touches.
Bed and Bath
The 240 guestrooms are some of Melbourne’s largest, and all have madrona-paneled walls, patterned carpeting and Art Deco-inspired furnishings. Honey-colored throw pillows atop crisp white linens add color to the understated beige and wood-accented digs, which afford views of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the city skyline or Fitzroy Gardens. Certain rooms have fireplaces sandwiched between bookcases; the Park Club and Suite categories include access to the private club lounge for continental breakfast, snacks, evening cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. But the real highlight of the guestrooms are the Italian marble bathrooms, which feature deep two-person soaking tubs with inset TVs and walk-in showers.
The Park Hyatt also includes a mosaic-tiled indoor pool and hot tub backed by a large Grecian mural, as well as a tennis court and 24-hour fitness center. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head for the five-level Radii Restaurant & Bar, headed up by executive chef Dane Clouston, which churns out dishes such as wood-fired Aylesbury duck with puy lentils, marsala jus and navel oranges. The lounge serves traditional afternoon tea complete with freshly baked scones and a glass of sparkling wine, and for some pampering, pay a visit to the day spa for an aromatherapy massage.
In the Area
The hotel’s location on the fringes of Melbourne’s central business district gives guests access to the very best of the city. Explore the nearby precinct of Crossley Street and find Pellegrini’s Espresso Bar at the intersection of Bourke Street, or shop Charles Edward for tailored shirts and Madam Virtue for glam new and vintage womenswear and accessories. Also nearby is the Gingerboy, where you can sip hand-crafted cocktails, and Siglo, on Spring Street, has a not-to-be-missed rooftop bar right above the Melbourne Supper Club.
How to Get There
We stayed here in Feb 18, as part of our around Aust trip.
The hotel is at the top end of town but it feels a million miles away from the hustle and bustle,
the rooms are large and the bathrooms very spacious.
I really cant fault the hotel, the breakfasts were great although we skipped a few to explore the cafe scene that is Melbourne.
We have no hesitation in booking this hotel for our next visit from Singapore.
My husband and I stayed at the Park Hyatt for our anniversary and first night away from our toddler. We had an absolutely wonderful time. The room was amazing with a stunning view of the city, the food was delicious and the staff were uniformly friendly, warm and caring. We received a complimentary bottle of champagne for our stay which was a beautiful touch. I could not recommend this place highly enough. We will definitely be back!
We have stayed at the Park Hyatt a few times over the years. Last time it was obvious a refurbishment was needed. We were pleasantly impressed with the new look rooms! New carpet and furniture, bathroom still spacious, bed was very comfortable, there were just a few technical problems with the TV. Hopefully they will get around to upgrading Radi (the restaurant). It's looking a little dated, but breakfast was really good. Love Mr Walker (the hotel's dog) snoozing at the entrance.
On arrival at the Park Hyatt the staff were friendly and courteous they were well informed about my stay and assisted me to my room without having to ask. Over the next three days this level of friendly service continued at breakfast, lunch, dinner and checkout.
Recommend to all, staff were so helpful and friendly, food was absolutely perfect and the hotel itself had everything we wanted, perfect.such a wonderful hotel with all the fancy trimmings like a princess deserves
