The elegant and chic Park Hyatt Sydney is not simply the best all-around choice for those wishing to climb the bridge (it's a 10-minute walk to the BridgeClimb starting point) or merely observe those who do (the hotel's rooftop pool area gives you front row seats), it is arguably the finest hotel in Sydney, period.
Still appearing fresh and luxurious from a total 2012 restoration, it enjoys a coveted harborfront location in the historical Rocks area. All of its 155 rooms and suites (the Sydney Suite is the city's largest) enjoy private balconies from which to drink in Sydney's three iconic attractions: the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House directly across the way and the busy Circular Quay where the occasional cruise ship docks.
Setting a new benchmark for contemporary luxury in Sydney's hotel scene, the Park Hyatt's signature minimalist design helps optimize the hotel's location and keeps the focus on the spellbinding views on display everywhere, from the moment you enter into the airy and simply named Living Room lounge area and the acclaimed Dining Room to the spacious and stylishly designed guestrooms.
A ubiquitous style of clean lines and warm neutral tones of chocolate and cream offsets an impressive collection of specially commissioned paintings and artwork by prominent Australian artists. Impeccable and seamless service from an enthusiastic staff help explain why the Park Hyatt Sydney is widely considered one of the finest Down Under.
