Park Hyatt Melbourne
A Historic Corner
On the fringe of Melbourne CBD, Park Hyatt sits amongst the city’s grand Victorian and modern buildings, including St Patrick’s Cathedral, Parliament House and Fitzroy Gardens. The notable St Patrick’s Cathedral towers majestically beside the hotel with its three spires pointing high up to the blue sky, its historical architecture a leading representation of the Gothic-revival style. Across the road stands the cathedral’s contemporary counterpart – the Park Hyatt hotel, a magnificent Italian-style building. The hotel illuminates an atmosphere of sophistication and elegance fitting of its designation as a world-class establishment. The juxtaposition of the two architectural styles encapsulates the cultural and historical vibrancy of the city.
The long paved driveway is lined with immaculately maintained bushes, like the royal entrance of a 19thcentury palace, isolated from the bustling city atmosphere. Inside, the glamorous interior is designed with absolute attention to detail, with warm blended colours, rich wood paneling, and exquisite European antiquity.
"From a tiny chair to a large hall, the entire hotel’s furnishing is thoroughly thought out and designed. Every piece of furniture we choose has multiple layers of reasons for its display. For example, a retro style office chair is not used simply for comfort, but as an object of inspiration to help visitors sink into the nostalgic atmosphere" .
Melbourne's Park Hyatt hotel features an impressive 240 rooms and suites with a range of luxurious hotel facilities to cater for every need. Each spacious room is fitted with a walk-in cloakroom, a large Italian marble bathroom, and there is unlimited access to the hotel's sauna, swimming pool, beauty Spa services, a 24-hour Business Centre and function room. "Park Hyatt is the ultimate experience of sophisticated European lifestyle," says Cooper.
