Park Hyatt Sydney is arguably one of the best hotels in the world. I have been looking forward to staying in this hotel all year long. You could say this is the most anticipated hotel stay in 2017 for me. Park Hyatt Sydney is located at The Rocks, just before the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
How much does it cost to stay at Park Hyatt Sydney?
I redeemed using World of Hyatt point. As Park Hyatt Sydney is a Category 7 property of Hyatt, it costs 30,000 points per night. I redeemed 2 nights of stay on the weekend, which brings total cost of 60,000 points. A lot of points, you would say. But considering a standard room goes for just over $1,000 per night, I would say it is all worth it.
We arrived in Sydney at approximately 9am. Thanks to the Fast Track card, we were able to zip through the immigration, picked up our luggage and through to customs. Funnily at the custom checkpoint, we were told to go to line 8 where it led directly to the exit point. This was the first time where my bags didn’t get search. We then grabbed an Uber and by 9.30 am we have reached Park Hyatt Sydney.
Park Hyatt Sydney – First Impression
We were greeted once we got out of the car. They welcomed us and guided us through the reception, which was just inside of the hotel entrance. They hotel lobby was grand, elegant and minimalist like you would expect in any of the Park Hyatt hotels.
I knew I arrived too early to check in and let the staff know if room was not available yet, then we would drop our bags and returned in the evening. I also inquired if room upgrade was possible, since points booking only get you standard room with city view. The super friendly receptionist checked the available room and gave us complimentary upgrade room to Opera House view. Granted unlike the Park Hyatt suite, which overlook directly to Opera House, the standard room you need to go out to the balcony and look left to see the Opera House. Regardless we were very grateful for the complimentary upgrade. Not only that, we also received complimentary bottle of wine.
Shortly after, the check in process was complete and we were escorted to our room immediately. The room was in level 3 and the hotel has 4 floors. Most of the rooms are in level 1-3 and level 4 is for spa & pool and the suites.
Park Hyatt Sydney Room
Once inside the room, the view was just breathtaking. No words can describe the Harbour view and the Opera House. I could sit down and watched the view whole day. I have lived in Sydney for more than 7 years during uni years, but never had this kind of experience. If you are going to Sydney and want to splurge, then Park Hyatt Sydney is your best choice.

The room itself was top notch. The standard room is a decent sized, 40 squared meters with semi open bathroom. You can slide the bathroom door open or closed for privacy. The bathroom features dual sinks, bath tub and walk in shower. The amenities are from Le Labo Bergamote 22.
My favourite part was the electric curtains that can slide up and down completely. The next morning, I was pleasantly surprised by the view of this gigantic cruise ship that had just docked on the terminal.
Park Hyatt Sydney Facilities
Redemption booking doesn’t come with breakfast, so we ordered in-room dining. We got the Eggs Benedict for breakfast. Oh boy, having breakfast with Opera House view is simply priceless. After breakfast, I decided to swim at the swimming pool in level 4. Park Hyatt Sydney has heated pool and Jacuzzi in level 4, so although the weather was still cold it was really nice to jump in. Again, being on the rooftop, you will get the whole view of Harbour Bridge and Opera House.
To sum up, Park Hyatt Sydney easily tops one of the best hotels in the world. I quote what my wife said, “I would not normally stay in a 5 star hotel more than once, but I want to come back to Park Hyatt Sydney again”.
The hotel is what you would expect in any Park Hyatt hotel, the room view is breathtaking and the hotel interior is artistically luxurious.
