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.
