Time Out Sydney

Since opening in 1990, the Park Hyatt has played host to a steady stream of celebrities, heads of state and international jet-setters with money to burn. The jaw-dropping, close-up vista of both the Opera House and the Harbour Bridge is a major selling point, but you get what you pay (a lot) for – the cheaper rooms offer just glimpses of what the more expensive suites have framed through their windows. A recent refurbishment has transformed the top-end suites into über-minimalist apartment-style hangouts. Extras include a rooftop swimming pool, deluxe spa and much-vaunted 24-hour butler service. There are also LCD TVs, CD/DVD players, high-speed internet connections and marble bathrooms. The chic Harbour Kitchen & Bar restaurant provides yet more amazing views (through floor-to-ceiling glass doors) and excellent food, while the Harbour Bar offers cocktails and tapas. The Club Bar caters to whisky fans, but anti-smoking laws mean that it’s no longer a cigar haven. Bars (2). Business centre. Concierge. Gym. Internet (high-speed/wireless). No smoking. Parking ($26). Pool (outdoor). Restaurant. Room service. Spa. TV (cable/DVD/pay movies/satellite). CityRail/ferry Circular Quay. Rates $675-$1,025 double. Rooms 158.
