We recently had the pleasure of experiencing Melbourne’s best-kept secret, the Hyatt Centric Melbourne. This city hotel, crowned the TAA’s Luxury Lifestyle Accommodation Hotel of the Year for 2022, is an absolute gem nestled in the heart of the city. From its prime location to the exceptional amenities and dining options, here’s why Hyatt Centric Melbourne deserves every accolade it receives.
The Location: A Hub for Melbourne’s Best
Hyatt Centric Melbourne boasts a location that is perfectly placed for all of your city adventures. Situated on Downie Street in Melbourne’s CBD, it offers easy access to all that this cultural city has to offer. Whether you’re a shopaholic eager to explore the bustling retail scene, a foodie ready to embark on a culinary adventure, or a culture enthusiast looking to visit renowned attractions, this hotel puts you at the epicenter of it all. It is just a stone’s throw away from the Crown Melbourne complex, Southern Cross Station, the Exhibition Centre, and the Melbourne Aquarium, making it an ideal base for both business and leisure travelers.
Check-in: Smooth, Easy, and Friendly
The check-in process at Hyatt Centric Melbourne was a breeze. The friendly and attentive staff made us feel truly welcomed from the moment we arrived. Their professionalism and warmth set the tone for a memorable stay, and they were more than willing to assist with any inquiries or special requests during the visit. We checked in on a Friday afternoon and there was definitely a great buzz to the foyer area with beautiful music and drinks on offer.
The Rooms: A Haven of Comfort and Style
One of the standout features of the hotel are the impeccably designed rooms. Stepping into the rooms you are greeted with an abundance of natural light flooding through expansive windows, offering panoramic views of the city below. The rooms exude an airy and contemporary ambiance, with stylish decor (a special callout to the tiled bedside tables!) and comfortable beds adorned with crisp white linen, ensuring a peaceful and restful night’s sleep. Whether you’re here for work or leisure, these rooms provide a haven of comfort and style.
The Amenities: Luxury at Its Best
Hyatt Centric Melbourne boasts an array of top-notch amenities, including a beautiful lap pool and a spacious, well-equipped gym. After a long day of exploring the city or attending meetings, a refreshing swim in the lap pool followed by a workout session was the perfect way to unwind and recharge. The pool area is a real feature, not just an afterthought, and we happily spent the morning swimming and relaxing – a perfect start to a day in the city!
The Food: A Culinary Delight at Langlands Restaurant
Langlands Restaurant, located on the 25th floor of the hotel, is a culinary gem in itself. With its stunning city views, it’s the perfect spot to savor a meal while watching the sunset over Melbourne’s skyline. The food is delicious (make sure you try the Mezze plate and the oh-so-good fries!), with a diverse menu to cater to various tastes. The cocktail list is equally impressive, offering the perfect accompaniment to your dining experience.
From its prime location to its chic rooms, impeccable service, outstanding amenities, and excellent dining options, this hotel offers an unforgettable experience for anyone looking to immerse themselves in the best that Melbourne has to offer. Whether you’re visiting for business or leisure, you’ll find that Hyatt Centric Melbourne has mastered the art of providing a luxurious and memorable stay.
