Australia is my favorite country in the world (and I've been to many for my age), so I wanted to be sure to celebrate in Oz -- and boy did I made a great choice in hotels!
I reserved a double spa-king room located on the 18th floor for 5 nights. After 3 flights and 26 hours in transit, I was very happy that my room was ready for me early at 11AM. The staff was friendly yet professional, paid attention to all of my needs. Further, when they learned that I would be there over my 30th birthday, the GM promptly sent up a personalized note and a gift. It made me feel appreciated not only as a guest, but an individual and member of Hyatt loyalty program.
For starters, the room was quite nice. I don't recall the square footage, but it was VERY roomy. I had floor-to-ceiling windows...doors, actually (or at least it seemed so), which fully open to the beautiful skyline Melbourne has to offer. If you are an early riser, you will wake to views of the sunrise with dozens of hot air balloons in the sky.
The bathroom (toilet in closet), over-sized whirlpool/soaking tub with a tv console built into the marble wall. There are 2 teel, transparent glass sinks and separate shower, all of which is partitioned and separate from the living/sleeping space -- and almost the same size! Also in the bathroom partitioned area, you have a fair amount of space for clothes and luggage space.
The health club has a nice pool and hot tub, and I received a very nice 1-hr deep tissue massage. As for the other facilities, decor and all was quite comfortable and a bit lavish.
And, again, I have to compliment the entire staff. Everyone was incredibly friendly, efficient and helpful. Making it even more meaningful, the Park Hyatt is a relatively large hotel, yet several staff members inquired about my birthday -- and not while they were looking at a file on the computer that may have indicated I was celebrating. I would, without hesitation revisit the Park Hyatt, Melbourne and whole-heartedly recommend it to fellow travelers.
