Surrounded by Victorian architecture and close to the central shopping district, the Park Hyatt Melbourne enjoys a wonderful location. Guests are greeted by views of St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the Fitzroy Gardens and Cook’s Cottage.
The interior is luxurious: bedrooms are appointed with marble en suites, some with spa bath tubs, and the décor is inspired by art deco design. All rooms have internet access, hairdryer and a coffee maker, and cribs are available for families with young children. Deluxe rooms allow access to a private lounge which serves evening cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
The ambience of luxurious relaxation extends to the public areas of the hotel. Curl up next to the fireplace in the Cuba Lounge with a cocktail or fine wine, before moving upstairs to dine in the radii restaurant and bar. The Tea Lounge, with garden views, serves refreshments all day, including lunches, afternoon teas with delicious pastries and scones, and a selection of wines and coffees.
The hotel facilities are completed by a pool, spa, sauna, gym and sun deck. Melbourne itself has many offerings for visitors: there are markets, shops, museums and galleries aplenty. The oldest building in Australia, Cook's Cottage, sits just opposite the hotel, and the Eureka tower - the highest viewing platform in the Southern hemisphere - is not far. A trip to Melbourne wouldn't be complete without a visit to the cricket ground, and the Park Hyatt concierge can arrange excursions for guests.
