“The Best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

The Grand Hyatt is an outstanding hotel. The service was excellent in every aspect. Every single staff member I interacted with was at the top of their game. From valet to reception, concierge to housekeeping. The special touches were subtle but made the stay. From the moment we stepped out of the car till the moment we left, an impeccable stay.

The room itself was spacious and well thought out with a king size bed, couch and work area all facing a large window capturing views of the skyline. The bathroom is perfect, marble throughout with a separate shower and tub. Friends of ours were staying in a suite, so I took a look through. Similar decor to the King room, but more than double the size with an extra bathroom and walk in robe. Separate bedroom and living.

I had two of the most restful sleeps in months here - although we did sleep in till 11am one morning because the curtains are so effective! The room was completely dark even at that time of the day.

The gym was one of the best I have come across in a hotel. On par with the JW Marriott Marquis in Dubai. The pool is indoor, which I am not a real fan of. But this is Melbourne. I did see one guy doing laps, although they are very short laps due to the size of the pool!

I don't often give 5/5 on tripadvisor, but I am very happy when I can. An excellent hotel stay from start to finish, I cant praise the Grand Hyatt highly enough. They've got it right.

Checked in at one price, then got call later in the evening that I would be charged a higher price for the room Asked to speak with manager, told he was caring for VIP (I have platinum status at the Hyatts); arranged call next morning, waited for it but no one called.

You can't go wrong at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne. Its rooms are impeccably presented, quiet, safe and many have wonderful views across Melbourne. It is close to everything the city has to offer, including its best shops and restaurants, and offers a terrific buffet breakfast (I don't normally like buffets, but this one is spectacular). The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. While the rooms are reasonably priced for 5 star accommodation, everything else is quite expensive, though worth every penny!

The property itself is really gorgeous. Stunning lobby and bar area.

Staff are friendly and professional.

The rooms are large and comfortable with beautiful marble floored bathrooms. The room I was in had a great view of Melbourne.

Perfect location - walking distance to Flinders Station, shopping, Southbank etc.

1st class hotel, suitable for business or leisure- would stay again.

Was here as a guest of a local company. This Hyatt was incredibly well run. Excellent guest services, and very comfortable rooms. As said here before, the location is excellent and it's just an overall great place to stay!

Hotel facilities such as pool, gym, courts were 2nd to none. Rooms are excellent, what I expected. Staff were genuinely welcoming and warm. Little things made a huge difference such as complimentary spring water and nice complimentary snacks at the bar.

The staff are brilliant, the location excellent. The only fly in the ointment was the perpetual athletics coming from the next room. The soundproofing needs addressing. Otherwise, a safe, comfortable, friendly place to stay.
