The Hyatt Hotel Canberra

The Hyatt Hotel Canberra is a Park Hyatt Hotel. Apparently, Park Hyatt is the luxury brand of hotel of the Hyatt chain. So instead of the usual high-rise hotel I was expecting, I was pleasantly surprised by the Hyatt’s country club look.

The hotel felt like a throwback to the 1920s. Wood, natural light, and neutral colors all contributed to the elegant and subdued feeling.

The doormen were dressed in 1920’s attire: knee-high socks, black knickers, floppy hat, bow tie, and even a pocket-watch (chain)! This just gave the hotel so much more character and personality.

I especially loved the presence of so much natural light, coming from these windows in the ceiling. It made the whole lobby and our entrance so much warmer and more welcoming.

Even the signs around the hotel kept in character. Wooden signs, with wrought iron detailing, for the “ye olde” look.

We arrived around 5pm, so high tea was in full swing in the tea room. What a spread!

C couldn’t wait to check-in and get to work……

……..while I got to enjoy the bed. Believe me, a goose-down comforter is so difficult to get out of when its cold!

Of course I check out the bathroom.

Breakfast the next morning was the usual hotel buffet, with an egg and pancake station, hot dishes, cheese plate, fresh fruits and cereals. C enjoyed his usual “breakfast of champions”: eggs and bacon.

It looked like gorgeous weather, so I was eager to get out and explore Canberra.
