We stayed at the Park Hyatt over 2 nights for our wedding anniversary and also to relax after a recent back operation. The Park Hyatt is 5* and you get what you pay for – a 5* beautiful grand hotel with a dark wood and gold / silver décor running throughout the hotel. The service from everyone was fantastic, nothing was a problem.
We wanted a quiet time and were worried about some of the comments on trip advisor about the cathedral bells on Sunday so we booked on the other side of the hotel away from the cathedral and we did not hear a peep on Sunday morning. Simply, if you want to see the cathedral you will hear the bells if not book the other side of the hotel, no noise – easy?
We booked a spa room with a TV in the spa area and it was fantastic. The room I think was 48 square meters and was very open and spacious, the bathroom and walk in wardrobe was marble and timber excellence. The bed was a king and I loved it but the bed topper was not as plush as some other hotels but that is a personal preference.
The location of the hotel is in the government “posh” quiet area set amongst some churches and gardens (if you like that sort of thing) but the hotel is also within close walking distance to the free city tram and the CBD itself – I had a back operation 8 weeks previous and have a little trouble walking and with the free tram etc managed to get around town with minimal discomfort (if you have mobility issues you just need to work out what way the hills run and walk opposite, then catch the free tram back to where you are going)
The only issue (if that) is the cost of breakfast. At $40 a head you expect a lot. The spread is a little on the light side for the price BUT what you get is quality fresh food i.e. eggs are cooked to order so no rubber worn out omelette’s or scrambled eggs and all the staff treat you like you are a king. If $40 a head worries you then just go to the CBD. There are millions of cafes for you to choose from. You may get cheaper but may not get any better.
I must commend the staff that helped my wife late on Sunday night trying to track down something that she had left in a cab. They went out of their way, registered a call and also spoke with the cab company directly trying hard to get the item back to us – unfortunately it looks like another passenger in the cab wanted the item more so it could not be located – simply, don’t leave things in cabs!!!
The hotel is fantastic, the food is fantastic and everyone at the hotel was friendly and fantastic. I would recommend the Park Hyatt to anyone who enjoys the good life.
