We really enjoyed the hotel lobby and room. We never ate at the restaurant because there was so much choice right outside the door along the river. The pool and hot tub were nice. Our only criticism would be the inattentive fitness area/pool staff: sometimes we signed in, sometimes not, they seemed not really interested. They didn't always greet you as you were coming and going. The sauna was not always very hot. Even after I asked the girl at the desk to adjust the temperature, it was not hot. For such a luxurious 5 star hotel I expected much better.
Convenient hotel for Southern Cross Station and from there to CBD by tram, or further afield in Victoria by train or bus. Quiet - I have never been disturbed by noise the four times I have stayed there.
Only a short stroll down from Southern Cross station and just over the bridge is Crown Casino. The trams to get you anywhere in Melbourne is around the corner, but walking is the best way to enjoy what Melbourne offers
I've wanted to stay at the Grand Hyatt for awhile, and I wasn't disappointed.
Room was lovely and service was fabulous. I ate a few meals in the Collins Kitchen, which was also excellent, my only complaint being that there isn't a huge range of vegetarian options.
I'll definitely be back.
Australia's second-largest city, Melbourne's city centre incorporates the central business district, extending from Queen Victoria Market in the north, west to the Etihad Stadium, and south to Federation Square. The district is home to many corporate headquarters, financial institutions, theatres, Chinatown, and an established population of students and young professionals.
