MELBOURNE, Australia -- The Park Hyatt Melbourne, one of only 14
Park Hyatts in the world, has emerged as one of the city's
preferred places to stay for upscale business and leisure
A short walk from the city's business district, the Park Hyatt
is situated in an area bordered by century-old elm trees and
adjacent to Melbourne's St. Patrick's Cathedral.
"Since we are targeting the top end of a very competitive
market, it's imperative that we deliver the kind of world class
amenities and personal, attentive service that our sophisticated,
well-traveled and often demanding clients expect," said manager
Ernesto A'de Lima during a tour of the property.
Built at a cost of about $550 million, it ranks as one of the most
expensive properties ever built in Australia.

areas to the lavishly appointed guest rooms and suites, there is
extensive use of high-quality imported materials, such as inlaid
Italian marble and mahogany wood paneling from South America.

Day Spa, offering a variety of therapeutic and pampering
treatments, such as facials, massages, body wraps, hairstyling,
hydrotherapy, sauna, steam baths and herbal baths.
There also is an Olympic-sized indoor swimming pool, a tennis
court, a sun deck and a fitness facility.
Public areas devoted to dining and relaxing include the Radii
Restaurant & Bar and the Trilogy Bistro & Lounge, as well
as a cigar bar and a tea lounge.

receptions and other corporate events in its Grand Ballroom, which

dance floor beneath a vaulted, silver-leafed dome.
