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.

We had a lovely stay at the Park Hyatt Sydney, ate incredible food, toured the Sydney Opera House, and enjoyed the friendly Aussie hospitality!

Because it was my mom’s 60th birthday, I surprised her with a 2 night stay at the Park Hyatt Sydney.  I paid cash for the 1st night and used 30,000 Hyatt points for the 2nd night.

I emailed the hotel in advance explaining that it was her birthday, and they upgraded her to an Opera Deluxe room for both nights.

And it had a fantastic view of the opera house!

The room was spacious with a king sized bed and soaker tub.  With the door open, you could see the harbor and opera house from the bathtub!

The bathroom had a good sized counter with double sinks…

…and in my expert opinion, the amenities smelled good.  My mom liked the bath salts…

There was a little dining area which had a great view of the opera house.

Every night there was a little treat waiting in the room.

In warmer weather, the balcony would be a nice place to relax with a coffee and a good book!

A few minutes after we went to her room, we were surprised with a yummy birthday cake!

But the most memorable part of the room was the gorgeous view of the Sydney Opera house.
