“Great for a special occasion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

We have just finished a 2 night stay in this very nice hotel. My husband attended a conference - the facilities were excellent and the event well delIvered.
I spent these days exploring the city and found the location to be excellent. Quite central and only a couple of blocks from the main shopping mall, flinders station, federation square and the bridge to Southgate.

We stayed in a suite which was Devine. Tastefully decorated and beautifully furnished. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Huge bath. Two bathrooms!!! Perfect for holding a business meeting in the sitting room, while keeping the bedroom private.
Service was excellent from check in throughout our stay.
If you stay in a suite you have access to the club lounge with refreshments throughout the day, continental breakfast in the morning and drinks and canapés in the afternoons, all included in the room charge.

Highly recommended for business or leisure stays.

Dear Ali-May-99,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us, and it is great to read of your enjoyment of our service and facilities. Our suites definitely are a great way to enjoy your stay in more spacious surrounds and give yourself room to relax. We certainly recommend booking a room with access to the Grand Club on the 31st floor – it’s a great way to truly experience the hotel in Grand style! We hope to welcome you back next time you visit Melbourne.

We booked and paid ahead directly with the hotel, and stayed in a Club room on the top floor! Beautiful room, stunning bathroom and fantastic service. Having access to the Club Lounge was lovely, nice to have a few drinks before heading out at Night. Great location and super friendly staff. We can't wait to go back again. If youre looking to spoil yourself this is a great place to do it!

Dear bottega s,
Staying in a room with Grand Club access is definitely a wonderful way to spoil yourself, we would have to agree! Relaxing at the end of the day with a nice glass of wine, some bubbles or a cold beer and taking in the jaw dropping view from the 31st floor just can’t be beaten! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

As you would expect, the hotel is very good, great facilities, location and helpful staff. The rooms are also very good too. But its the attention to the small things that let it down like an unstable toilet seat upon arrival which is the last thinmg you need. An unstable room table that had to be replaced. Took five hours to establish email connection.

But the worst of the lot was the fact our room was not made up until after 3pm one day and 5.45pm the next day. After complaining the first time they sent a complimentary bottle of wine which was appreciated. But the second time the very next day was just UNACCEPTABLE.
Sure they offerered us complimentary breakfast on the day of checkout but it should never happen.

Dear Zara08,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay, and it’s great to see that overall you found our hotel comfortable and in a great location for exploring all that Melbourne has to offer. However, we are disappointed to read of the difficulties you experienced in regards to the refreshing of your room, and the small maintenance details that should not have been overlooked. Our Front Office & Engineering management teams have been alerted to your comments for review and training. We hope that you choose to stay with us again, and give us an opportunity to provide you with 5 star service and facilities truly reflective of Grand Hyatt Melbourne.

I recently returned to the Grand Hyatt after not having stayed there for some years. We travelled to Melbourne to see a musical at Her Majestys Theatre and to have a meal at one of our favourite restaurants in Little Collons St. The location of the hotel was excellent for both venues. Our taxi dropped us off at the entrance in Collins St which is the same level as the reception. Our room, on the 28th floor, had a view of the city through a large window. Despite the expanse of glass there was very little traffic noise. The room was large with an extremely comfortable king bed and a good casual seating area which included a decent sized table for in-room dining. The bathroom was excellent, large with a bath and good shower. We were not disturbed by any noise from the hallway or adjoining rooms and with the "do not distrub light" on outside we had no unwanted knocks on the door by house staff wanting to check this or fix that. As we only stayed the one night we did not have a chance to try any of the dining options in the hotel. However because we really enjoyed our stay we will certainly return and dine in-house next time.

Dear Hope51,
One of the great things about Grand Hyatt Melbourne’s location is the ability to walk just about anywhere you want to go – shopping, a match at the MCG, great bars and restaurants, and of course, Melbourne’s wonderful theatre district is just a short stroll away! It’s great to read you enjoyed your stay with us, and we hope to welcome you back soon.

Stayed at the Hyatt for the weekend due to work event in city. I was happy with the hotel, very friendly staff, valet service was excellent, check in was smooth and the rooms were nice and modern. We stayed in a grand view deluxe, the room was a touch on the small side compared to hotels I'd stayed in but it was set up quite well so you didn't notice. On the plus side the bathroom was very large and it was nicely fitted out in marble. The one thing I would say is, if I was going to pick on something, the pool area was quite dated, it was an indoor pool and it was quite small. Also the hotel seemed to get very busy, had to line up to get into breakfast which I've never had to do in all the years I've travelled, maybe it was just a smaller restaurant. Overall I would recommend staying here for sure. I gladly would

Dear AussieHolidayLover,
It’s wonderful to read that you enjoyed your stay with us, especially the marble bathroom – we hope you enjoyed a nice relaxing soak in the deep tub! Breakfast does get quite busy after about 9am – we are quite famous for the quality of our breakfast offerings! Being an open kitchen where everything is cooked freshly for you, sometimes there is a short wait however breakfast certainly is well worth it! We look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Grand Hyatt is our Corp hotel so I have stayed there several times this year. Reception is on L2 accessible via the lift. Both check-in and check-out process are efficient. As I have 2 different memberships which allows me to earn points during my stay, the staff explained the benefits of both programs which helps me greatly in making a decision.

Highest floor is L33. Rooms of bigger number have no view (faces buildings). Some of the rooms (e.g. 26 and 27) are hidden from the corridor. For example, I stayed at room 26 in the most recent trip, squeeze in between room 25 and 27 hidden from the corridor. I was expecting that it would be quieter but I was wrong. I could hear the guest in the next room singing in his shower, water running from their bath tubs and the sound of hairdryer every morning. I also suspect the "sound of vibration" i have been hearing come from the elevator, which is right behind room 27.

King size bed is comfortable with hard and soft pillows for your selection. Nice bathroom with both bath tub and standing shower. Generous amenities and towels are provided. I noticed that chips in the mini bar close to expiry date so please check before you consume anything from the mini bar.

International power adaptor is provided in the room but I could not locate any power socket near the working table area so do ensure your laptop charger is long enough to extend from TV consol to the work table. Wireless internet is chargable at a maximun daily rate of AUD29.

Food served at the lobby restaurant is very pricey (expected) and salty. Their lamp chop is the one dish most of us agree we would order again should we return. In-room breakfast (approx. AUD30 to 40) service is reliable and served timely according to the timing you specify. There are many eateries at much cheaper rate just 10 mins away from the Hotel at Russell Street or the nearby Chinatown.

All in all, other than the noise from nearby rooms, Grand Hyatt is still my choice hotel when visiting Melbourne.
