A smart, stylish hotel in Melbourne
Flanked by the lush greens of the Fitzroy Gardens, Park Hyatt Melbourne is an inner-city sanctuary on the edge of the central business district and nearby some of the city’s top sites like St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
The luxury hotel’s décor is all about quiet, contemporary luxury — hints of art deco design are found throughout, from the laser cut marble floors, chrome accents and polished dark wood furniture.
The two-story lobby is a stunner, with a grand curved staircase and walls of glass, a prime introduction to this sleek but inviting hotel.
Our Inspector’s Highlights
• A swim in the hotel’s Park Club Health & Day Spa’s 82-foot edgeless lap pool is a real treat — the mosaic tiles, colonnades and Grecian murals work together to set a tranquil mood that feels miles away from bustling Melbourne.
• Overlooking the city skyline, the outdoor tennis court is open for play and for private tennis lessons.
• The Melbourne hotel’s location is key for those who love to walk and explore the many shops and restaurants around Collins Street.
• Rooms all have spa-like spacious Italian marble bathrooms with large soaking tubs and wall-mounted TVs.
