The Park Hyatt Sydney is one of Australia’s best luxury hotels and needless to say after checking in for two glamorous nights we are ready to go back and experience it all again.
Located on the waterfront in our favourite Sydney neighbourhood The Rocks right between two of Sydney’s iconic attractions, the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, the Park Hyatt Sydney is not only surrounded by world-class eateries but is also within walking distance to the Circular Quay ferries, city shops, Barangaroo and the Darling Harbour precinct.
This time when looking for a hotel in Sydney we wanted to stay at a property that we hadn’t stayed at before and came with those extra special touches like pristine harbour views and high-end service. We also wanted a property where we could instantly feel comfortable, and based on our experience, the Park Hyatt offered all of this and more.
We love how the Park Hyatt Sydney is a four-level property with 155 guest rooms as this made our stay feel more personable and exclusive.
With contemporary accommodation ranging from spacious King Rooms with Harbour or Opera House views all the way up to the glamorous 2 bedroom Sydney Suite with premium views, and with a price tag starting north of $1000 per night you are guaranteed to find a room that won’t disappoint.
We checked into Harbour View Room room 328, on level three. As with the majority of the rooms at the Park Hyatt, we had our own private balcony which allowed us partial views of the Opera House.
Our room was spacious and offered all of the expected amenities of a five-star property including plush bathrobes, slippers, complimentary bottled water, a Nespresso coffee machine, room service, a happy birthday cake for Aron and a minibar full of snacks and drinks which seemed quite reasonably priced for a swanky Sydney hotel.
We did find that the rooftop spa could be faintly heard from this room and wished that the TV had been raised a fraction higher so it was easier to watch in bed, but these were definitely not show stoppers for us.
Although our Harbour View Room had amazing city views I would recommend booking a King Opera View Room which looks directly over the harbour and Opera House, making the outlook even more spectacular!
The Dining Room
Open for lunch, dinner and exclusively for hotel guests for breakfast The Dining Room honestly is the perfect place to start your day, with amazing views looking out over the Opera House and harbour you will find it hard to leave.
As breakfast was included in our room rate we were able to enjoy a selection of items from the continental buffet and also select one item from the à la carte menu, which we couldn’t go past the buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup and our all-time favourite eggs benny. We loved the location, the incredible view of the Opera House and the food in The Dining Room.
The Living Room + Bar
Open for light meals from 12 pm daily we found that The Living Room was the perfect place for us to enjoy afternoon cocktails and a nightcap. We recommend asking for a table next to the window so you can sit back and enjoy the city view. On Fridays, Saturday’s and Sunday’s you can experience The Living Room’s Champagne Afternoon Tea, as we stayed mid-week we didn’t get to try this but we will certainly book this the next time we are in Sydney.
The Roof Top Pool would have to be one of the biggest attractions at the Park Hyatt Sydney. Located on the fourth floor and looking out over the harbour it’s absolutely incredible and is exactly where we would have spent the day if it wasn’t raining. With a separate spa, poolside cabanas, day beds, light meals and cocktails available this hotel guest only pool is paradise in the heart of the city.
You will also find art by Australian artists throughout the hotel and many more amenities available to help make your stay memorable including the spa, free wifi, fitness centre, digital check-in and a business centre for all of those business travellers out there.
