If you're looking for a luxurious stay in Perth, the Hyatt Regency should be at the top of your list. As one of the city's older and most prestigious five-star hotels, the Hyatt Regency boasts a prime location on the scenic Swan River foreshore. Although it's situated east of Perth's city center, the hotel is just a quick taxi ride away from most of the area's top attractions.
Hyatt Regency Perth Location
If you're planning a trip to Perth, consider staying at the Hyatt Regency. Although it's located at the far end of Adelaide Terrace, the hotel is just a quick five-minute taxi ride from downtown Perth. While the area is pleasant enough to walk in, you'll enjoy a stroll along the stunning Swan River located opposite the hotel much more than the Hay Street thoroughfare at the hotel's entrance. The city center is also only a 30-minute walk away. Plus, the hotel is conveniently situated within Perth's fantastic Central Area Transit zone, which means that all public buses in the inner city offer free rides (there's even a bus stop right outside the hotel).
For those who want to explore the area on two wheels, bikes are available for hire. You can even take a short bike ride to Heirisson Island and see the wild yet approachable kangaroos that live on the western side (it's just over half a mile away via bike paths).
Hyatt Regency Perth Design
Experience the unique charm and grandeur of the Hyatt Regency Perth, a nine-story design hotel that was built in 1984 during a time when space was used lavishly. The hotel's voluminous, open-cut floors, white balconies, bridges, and conservatory roof create a stunning architectural masterpiece that resembles a cross between a department store and an airport, minus the shop fronts. The grand and airy spaces are filled with natural light, creating a welcoming atmosphere that is sure to impress.
As you step into the lobby, you'll be transported back to a time of old-school elegance. A large central fountain topped with stone elephants flanking an obelisk greets you, and by night, lights flicker on it like candles, creating a relaxing ambiance. The gentle sound of running water adds to the serene atmosphere. While the lobby may have seen its heyday, it still exudes an undeniable charm. While the large carpet mats at the entrance may be worn and stained, as you walk through the hotel, it brightens and becomes more comfortable than its first impression suggests.
Hyatt Regency Perth Facilities
At the Hyatt Regency Perth, there is no shortage of guest amenities. With its expansive layout, it's no surprise to find a heated outdoor pool (open from 6am to 9pm) and a grass tennis court. Beyond the pool area, you'll discover a dry sauna, while back inside, a small fitness center with large windows is available to guests 24 hours a day. To ensure the safety and privacy of their guests, access to these facilities is restricted to those with a room card. Even the elevator requires card contact and a touch screen to reach the different floors.
When it comes to guest service, the staff at the Hyatt Regency Perth go above and beyond. Whether you're interacting with them at reception, in the lobby bar, or at the restaurant, they are consistently cheerful and helpful. From check-in to check-out, the staff is dedicated to making your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Hyatt Regency Perth Rooms
If you're looking for spacious and comfortable accommodation in Perth, the Hyatt Regency Perth is an excellent choice. The hotel's rooms are tastefully decorated in a mousey brown color palette and come equipped with all the basics you need for a comfortable stay. Each room features a desk and leather office chairs, a lounge chair, and a large bed with a duvet cover (no top sheet). The minibar is well-stocked, and there's a kettle available for making tea and coffee.
While the white bathrooms in the rooms are showing their age and could be cleaner, any marks can be easily wiped off with a wet cloth. Standard rooms come with either a walk-in shower or a shower/tub combo. The mood is lifted with glass art illuminated by down lighting, creating a relaxing ambiance that you're sure to enjoy. The Hyatt Regency Perth offers a total of 367 guest rooms and suites, providing ample space for all types of travelers.
Hyatt Regency Perth Dining
At the Hyatt Regency Perth, you'll find two fantastic dining options: the deceptively large Café restaurant and the elegant Conservatory lounge bar. Both menus are available in each place, allowing you to enjoy your favorite dishes no matter where you decide to dine. The signature smoked salmon crostini at the bar is a must-try, while Café's fresh gnocchi and grilled meats come highly recommended.
For breakfast, guests can enjoy a standard buffet spread with a selection of cultural fare. In addition to the usual fresh fruit, Bircher muesli, croissants, smoked salmon, and eggs cooked to order, there are also Asian dumplings, turmeric cauliflower and chick peas, and stir-fried vegetables. It's a good breakfast spread, but smaller eaters may prefer the great value à la carte breakfast menu at Conservatory.
Book your stay at the Hyatt Regency Perth and indulge in the exceptional dining options available at the hotel. Whether you're in the mood for a hearty meal or a light snack, the Hyatt Regency Perth has you covered. Don't miss out on the chance to savor some of the city's best cuisine during your stay.
