I am hesitant to give a five star rating generally and even more so when a big chain is involved as it is generally hard for those types of hotels to create unique experiences. Melbourne's Park Hyatt, however, exceeded my expectations.
The Park Hyatt is located on the edge of Melbourne's business district. While Melbourne is a city that is easier to bike around than walk around, I found the Hyatt to be within a reasonable 20 minute walk of most major attractions. I walked back from one of these attractions late one night and felt perfectly safe.
The rooms are primarily decorated with lots of wood paneling and marble, which is not my style. Yet I found it elegant and pleasant. Although I stayed in a standard room, it was a nice size and didn't feel constrained. The bathroom offered fantastic amenities (including a flat iron) that I don't often find elsewhere. The bed was comfortable.
The staff was friendly, helpful, and competent, handling all my questions and requests with ease.
I ordered dinner and breakfast from the room service menu and found both to be delicious. I loved the healthy options on the menu as they maintained taste even while lowering fat and calories.
This was my first experience with the Park Hyatt chain, and it exceeded all expectations. I would book again without hesitation.
