Every now and then, we need to escape reality. While going overseas is not always an option, sometimes a night or two in a different room can make all the difference to refresh and revitalise the soul. Enter the Grand Hyatt.
Entering the, ahem, grand entrance on Exhibition street you are welcomed by valets who politely welcome you to your stay. Taking care of your car means that you don’t need to worry about parking. You and your loved one are left to saunter through the magnificent entrance up to the check-in counter, where staff welcome you with a smile and go to every effort to not hold you up. On this particular occasion, my room was ready and the receptionist called around and managed to swap me for the room that had already been prepared.
The room itself was exquisite – opening up to a beautifully open study and lounge. A wrap around couch provides the perfect opportunity to drop your bags and snuggle up while you take your pick of watching the large LCD television or admiring the views of our fair city. All the necessities are available in the mini bar with your choice of mini-spirits, or of course chocolates and snacks. What we also loved was the ability to get our coffee fix with a Nespresso machine that we could use and our choice of three flavours. To the left of the lounge is the beautiful master room – double bed, large LCD television and another magnificent wrap-around suite. The windows in the rooms are highly reflective and is it difficult to see very much in adjacent rooms.
The master bathroom is a real treat with a massive hot tub for two, lots of bench space at the wash basin and spacious shower. Facilities provided are generous, with the usual mini shampoos, conditioners, and shower cap; but also included a disposable shaver for the gents and a disposable toothbrush just in case you left yours at home.
The Grand Lounge upstairs, for those who obtain access, provides some light food from 6-8pm and an open bar of beer, wine, spirits and sparkling – with a spectacular view of the CBD.
The Grand Hyatt provides magnificent rooms and services that will be sure to leave you feeling recharged and ready to take on the world.
