There are some travellers that love staying in the heart of a city and walking the town. Admittedly, it’s a favourite past-time of ours here at Time Out and if you haven’t explored Melbourne by foot, there’s never been a better time to do so than now.
Located at the ‘Paris’ end of Collins Street, thanks to many high-end French fashion labels that call this part of town home, Grand Hyatt Melbourne is ideal for the bar hopper, shopper and urban adventurer alike.
The hotel is looking the finest it has ever been following an extensive refurbishment to the lobby areas, bars, restaurants and a number of rooms, and its club lounge is up there with the best in town.
Absolutely request one of the newly-renovated, Joseph Pang-designed rooms which are as equally comfortable for singles, couples and families alike.
The couches in front of the windows - even in the standard guest rooms - means some canoodling, snogging or perhaps more with one of the best views in town.
