Overview

A-lister retreat rocking a 2012 renovation with killer Opera House views, a serene spa and mod Aussie fare

The Look

Quiet luxury in soothing neutral tones. Design firm BARStudio revamped this already beloved hotel with an open-plan residential look, with each high-end piece of furniture positioned to maximize views out of the harbor-front floor-to-ceiling glass doors. (For a sea-air breeze, enjoy the outdoors on your private balcony.) Stepping into these roomy suites (starting at 430 square feet) is like entering a cocoon—plush carpet, butter-soft leather couches and chairs, and an emphasis on natural light make for a relaxing, almost spa-like ambiance. Eco-friendly tech (automatic blinds to reduce heat, lights that dim when you leave the room) make this one of the most modern hotels in Sydney, while the specially commissioned artwork by famous Australian artists places you firmly in your local surroundings.

Bed and Bath

Room extras include LED TVs, Bose music systems, iPod docking stations and Nespresso coffee machines. For maximum views and luxury, opt for an Opera Suite, Harbour Suite, Rooftop Suite, Quay Suite, or—the top of the pops—the two-bedroom Sydney Suite. Bathrooms are spacious and, like the rest of the rooms, usually angled to take advantage of the Sydney Harbour views. The renovation added generously sized rain showers, deep marble baths, dual vanities, heated Toto toilets with built-in bidets and Le Labo bath amenities.

Beyond

Don’t be fooled by the no-frills names of the bars and restaurant here—The Dining Room serves modern Australian dishes deserving of its stunning harbor backdrop, and The Living Room feels like the airy great room of your wealthiest friend’s beach house—a comfortable but stylish setting for a light meal (made from local, seasonal ingredients, naturally) or afternoon tea, served from 2:30 to 5 p.m. Upstairs, The Spa is a retreat within a retreat, with five lavish treatment rooms, a relaxation lounge, two steam rooms and Natura Bissé products from Spain.

In the Area

Walk out the back entrance of the hotel and you’re on the rim of the most famous harbor in the world. You may be content to sit on a park bench and watch the Sydney ferries come and go, but if not, there are plenty of other diversions nearby. It’s mesmerizing just to look at the Opera House, but don’t miss the chance to go inside, whether it’s for a performance or a behind-the-scenes tour. Need something fancy to wear to dinner? Take a stroll or a short cab ride to the MLC Centre, a skyscraper that’s home to the Theatre Royal and luxury labels including Cartier, Longchamp and locals Anthea Crawford and Von Troska. On the streets nearby, you’ll also find local outposts of Chanel and Burberry. For a quiet respite on a hot day, head to the Royal Botanic Gardens, which sprawl over a harbor-front peninsula just behind the Opera House.

Our second visit after half a decade. Little has changed. It is still sheer class. Difficult to fault any moment spent in this superb hotel.Keep up the good work. You are the envy of almost any hotel in Australia, if not the world.

Wonderful staff, wonderful rooms, great service
Reviewed 2 days ago

We stayed for our anniversary and received a bunch of flowers on arrival. After paying for an upgrade we didn't like, a simple phone call fixed everything and it was no trouble at all for staff to move us back to our original room. Cocktails in the bar are divine! Breakfast was nice. The rooms are nice, expensive, but clean. Overall, we recommend this hotel.

The Best in Sydney

If I could use only one word to describe this hotel, it would be spectacular! From the moment we arrived the staff was ready and willing to help. The rooms were spotless, high quality, and everything was in perfect order. The views were amazing of the harbor. This truly is the best hotel in Sydney hands down.

Wedding night
Reviewed 4 days ago

We decided to splurge for our wedding night and stay at the Park Hyatt. It was the perfect venue to unwind after the wedding. Beautiful roof top terrace with pool and lounges overlooking the opera house and Sydney harbour.

The room was luxurious and we were given complimentary champagne and truffles for our special night. Nespresso machine included. Generous bathroom and large tub with views of the harbour. A glimpse of the opera house from the terrace.

Exceptional service. We definitely felt very special. A very memorable stay.

Opera House View
Reviewed 6 days ago

I was here two nights at Nov. 2018 ,paying AU$1300 per night(including breakfast). This is a so-called boutique hotel. Only limited number of rooms have a Opera House view and I took one of them. The room was small and its breakfast was really terrible , as it was no more than one at typical cheap business hotel. I stayed Intercontinental Sydney and Shangrila also. I don't like this kind hotel pretending luxury boutique hotel , but being in fact a second class hotel.I don't recommend at all unless you are willing to pay for the view of Opera House(don't forget majority of rooms have harbour view).
