Everything you need to know about the Hyatt brand in Australia. From the team at Australian Traveller magazine.
There are 7 Hyatt Hotels in Australia. The best Hyatt are hotels are referred to as “Park Hyatt”, and the two Park Hyatts in Australia are in Melbourne and Sydney. Jyatt Canberra bills itself as “by Park Hyatt”, which means for all intents and purposes you can consider the Hyatt Canberra a Park Hyatt.
In no particular order, the Hyatt Hotels in Australia are:
Sydney – Park Hyatt Hotel
Melbourne – Park Hyatt Hotel
Melbourne – Grand Hyatt Hotel
Gold Coast – Hyatt Regency Sanctuary Cove
Sunshine Coast – Hyatt Regency Coolum
Canberra – Park Hyatt Hotel
Perth – Hyatt Regency Perth
In Australia, the Hyatt hotels with “Regency” in their name tend to be more resort type hotels, which more reflects the nature of their locations. The exception seems to be Hyatt Regency Perth, which is more of a business hotel than a resort.
It should be noted that the Grand Hyatt in Melbourne has recently been refurbished and does look a vast improvement. Their breakfast is certainly one of Melbourne’s best as is their lobby restaurant which is an experience in itself. The funky bar below the reception is a great city bar..
The Park Hyatt Sydney with it’s postcard position under the Sydney Harbour Bridge is currently closed. It has just been refurbished and reopened in June 2012. It is usually considered the best of Sydney’s hotels. Our independent review of the refurbished Park Hyatt Sydney can be found here.
