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
My partner and I stayed at the Park Hyatt for a night last weekend and were blown away by the facilities and staff. We absolutely loved the room, the very comfortable bed, the bath, the pool and the buffet breakfast the next morning. We will definitely be back soon and will bring our girls next time.
Excellent hotel; fantastic service; nice location slightly away from bustle of CBD but still easy walking distance. Rooms of an exceptional quality with plenty of space and all amenities - Nespresso coffee included.
This was the first time I stayed at the Park Hyatt and it didn’t disappoint.
We opted for the club room and were pleasantly surprised with the room which more reflected a suite than a normal hotel room! The room was beautifully laid out with all of the amenities and services you would expect from a 5 star hotel.
The quality of the room service food was outstanding and the club room was well laid out with a good selection of food and drink options. It isn’t the best club room I’ve experienced in Melbourne but it is up there.
One of the highlights is the pool and spa area, definitely check it out as arguably one of the best in Melbourne.
I look forward to my next stay here.
