I stayed at Park Hyatt Sydney for 5 nights in August 2012 and here are my thoughts.
The hotel just underwent a complete renovation I think 6 months ago, so everything looks very new. The style is quite modern. The hotel lobby area is actually surprisingly small. It's not the very grand feel you would get when you walk into a hotel lobby. In fact, I had a little trouble finding the hotel because there wasn't a big hotel sign. Therefore, the initial impression didn't blow me away.
Service however, was top notch. Very warm, friendly and accommodating. I can't complain about the service even if I wanted to. All staff was super friendly, especially the concierge. One guy from the concierge in fact was practically so helpful that he was begging to let him help us! Extra helpful staff although I planned most of the trip myself so I can't say how knowledgeable they are etc.
Most reviewers say that the location is "great", but they don't specify what "great" means. It's all relative. If you're looking for a location that has great views of the harbor bridge and of the opera house, that this is THE best hotel to get those views.
However, if you prefer a location in the middle of the city along George Street, then this may not be your best choice. Places like Hilton or Four Seasons are slightly closer to where the action is. In fact, the Park Hyatt/Circular Quay area is a little quiet at night.
Room: The room is actually not the best I've seen. The view is one of the best, but the room didn't blow me away. The size isn't that big (no bigger than a normal 5 star hotel) but there is a balcony. I stayed in the Opera King room just in case you're wondering.
Overall, a very nice hotel with a fantastic view. If you don't mind the location, and also the price, this is the place for you. There are probably better value for money 5 star hotels, but if you have a little extra cash to splurge, this would be a great hotel. If not, you're not missing out that much.
