I made a last-minute trip to Australia to surprise my mom on her 60th birthday where she was visiting my sister. And I planned this trip literally 3 days before I left.
A Quick Trip Down Under Index:
Part 2 – Park Hyatt Sydney Views and Diamond Breakfast
Part 5 – Sydney Opera House Tour
Part 6 – United Airlines Global First Review
The Park Hyatt Sydney is 1 of only a handful of Hyatt’s top category 7 hotels, which also include the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort and Spa, Park Hyatt Milan, Park Hyatt New York, Park Hyatt Paris – Vendome, Park Hyatt Tokyo, and Park Hyatt Zurich.
Standard award rooms at the Park Hyatt Sydney cost 30,000 Hyatt points per night. I transferred Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Hyatt for 1 night, and paid cash for another.
Rooms at the Park Hyatt Sydney often cost over $750 per night, so I’m happy to pay 30,000 Hyatt points!
You could also get 2 free nights at this hotel by signing-up for the Chase Hyatt card and completing the minimum spending requirement. Use this link for a better offer with a $50 statement credit only if you’ve had a Hyatt stay after May 1, 2015.
Watch it shimmer under the moonlight.
Or early in the morning while having breakfast.
There’s a continental breakfast buffet of pastries and sweet treats…
…muffins and donuts…
…a selection of cereals and dried fruit…
…and a good assortment of hearty breads and rolls.
You could also order cooked items from the a la carte menu, including buttermilk pancakes with fresh fruit, double cream, and maple syrup.
I opted for the organic egg omelet, with ham, mushroom, and Swiss cheese.
My mom ordered the Belgian waffles with berries.
We took a walk around the hotel grounds. It’s located right at the foot of the Sydney Harbor Bridge.
It was winter in Australia, so the temperatures were quite cool. But still pleasant for a boardwalk stroll!
The Park Hyatt Sydney has some of the best views of any Hyatt I’ve visited!
Hyatt is my favorite hotel chain! We’ve had terrific experiences at many Hyatt hotels, including the Park Hyatt Goa, Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach, Grand Hyatt Kauai, Hyatt Regency Maui, Park Hyatt Milan, Park Hyatt Paris – Vendome, and Park Hyatt Zurich.
I enjoyed the Park Hyatt Sydney very much! But my favorite Hyatt is still the Park Hyatt in Paris!
