Fodor's Expert Review Park Hyatt Melbourne
1 Parliament Sq.
Set right next to Fitzroy Gardens and opposite St. Patrick's Cathedral, this is one of Melbourne's most elegant hotels. Warm colors, rich wood paneling, and art deco–style furnishings adorn the rooms—all of which have walk-in wardrobes, king-size beds, Italian marble bathrooms, Nespresso coffee machines, and roomy, modern work spaces. Suites are even more luxurious, some with fireplaces, terraces, and hot tubs. The seven-level radii restaurant and bar is artsy and chic, and contemporary artworks by international talents are on exhibit throughout the hotel (some are for sale). The day spa features an indoor aquamarine pool, spa, sauna, gym, and private sundeck, which is a popular option.
