Hyatt – Perth
Now, I have stayed at numerous hotels in Perth and decided to try another, you never know you may find a little gem hidden in a city. The Hyatt is a large hotel offering everything you expect from this type of establishment. Our room, which was the Regal Suite, was super large with a lounge room, two bathrooms, and bedroom. Our ensuite had a walk in dressing room attached, and the bathroom was enormous and lovely. Basically, the suite was an approx 70sq metre which is incredibly large, so if you are a space freak like me you would probably like it. The furniture was rather ordinary for a Hilton and the lounge room had enough room to have a dining suite, which seemed incredibly weird that it was missing. There is no balcony or any good views which was disappointing for a suite.
Basically, I really didn’t like this hotel, mainly because of the design and wasted spaces in the corridors…..every room in the hotel could have been enormous if they didn’t waste the space in the foyers or corridors; such incredible bad planning in design…our other friend stayed in a standard room and his room was very small but it was elegantly furnished with a small Juliet balcony.
It is a long hike into town unless you catch the free shuttle bus from outside the hotel but this only comes every 15 minutes.
The buffet restaurant is very ordinary and was crowded every day, for what reason …beats me… but there are some excellent restaurants just outside the hotel which were fantastic like “ Friends” the food here was very impressive and well worth a visit, opposite was another which again was good. Just take the elevator down one floor and walk across the corridor.
The hotel swimming was very large and deep, with an open outdoor area with a tennis court and gym supplied. This hotel would be good on a lovely summer’s day.
Unique Quality: Overall I prefer the Crown Plaza, the staff are wonderful and our suite was truly a suite with lovely views over the Swan River. I have also written a review on this hotel. The trouble with Perth most hotels are situated about 10 minutes – 15 mins walk from the major CBD area, except for The Duxton which is a bad option…I have also written review on this hotel.
I have given this hotel an average rating, due to its bad position and ordinary design.
The Hyatt Regency is situated near the banks of the Swan River on the eastern edge of Perth's CBD. It is close to the domestic and international airports which probably explains why there was a steady stream of pilots at reception.
Like many 5 star hotels it is run efficiently and professionally yet it seemed to lack any real character.
If you do find yourself accommdated here then do yourself a favour and ask for a river view room or you'll find yourself staring at other buildings.
Unique Quality: Hyatt Regency Perth's meeting facilities include boardrooms, meeting rooms and small function rooms with all the latest audio-visual equipment.
Directions: Eastern edge of Perth's CBD
Though the facilities and amenities are definately those of a five star hotel, the service leaves something to be desired. Are they scared to crack a smile.
The hotel itself is beautiful, with wonderful river views from the regency rooms and the regency lounge.
The rooms are large though the bathroom is not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel, and a regency room at that, with no extra's and the shower and bath in one.
The bed, though extremely comfortable, consisted only of a quilt, no sheet on top, just underneath you. This caused my normal standard hygenic imagination to go wild.
The food at the hotel is beautiful and you certainly get what you pay for. I would recommend staying at this hotel if you get a bargain as it is very close to the city and has everything you could want from a 5 star hotel.
Unique Quality: The 5 or 6 places to eat in this hotel make it great for people who don't want to leave the hotel at night.
Joe's Oriental Diner makes some of the best noodles I have ever tasted and the staff in this restaurant were great.
We only stayed for one night in a Club king which included in the cost of the room pre dinner drinks between 6-8 in a private lounge and breakfast in the morning.
Unique Quality: It is proberly one of few hotels with direct views of the swan river. The inside of the hotel is absouletly amazing and so large. There is even a fountain!!!! The desert varieties of the restaurant!!!!
