One of Sydney’s finest hotels, Park Hyatt Sydney, has been awarded a ‘Best of the Best’ in design award at the prestigious Virtuoso ceremony in Las Vegas.
Nominated alongside some of the world’s best hotels, Park Hyatt Sydney was named the winner of the ‘Best Achievement in Design’ award in recognition of the outstanding architecture and design of the hotel.
The award comes after the hotel was completely rebuilt. The hotel’s new design unveiled an intimate and stylish residential-style hotel with architecture and art that reflects the Australian landscape.
With three new luxury rooftop suites, including the luxurious Sydney Suite, Park Hyatt Sydney brings a new level of contemporary luxury to the edge of Sydney harbour with a sought-after waterfront location between the world-famous Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.
The hotel’s interior features an art gallery that includes indigenous artefacts, books and artworks in all 155 guestrooms and throughout the hotel.
The Park Hyatt also features floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open onto spacious private balconies, custom-designed lighting and furnishings of warm, neutral hues.
The redesign also honours its Australian heritage with original Sydney sandstone and local timber incorporated in the rebuild. The hotel has also commissioned a number of Australian artists including sculptors, painters and photographers to create artworks designed to provide guests with a quintessentially Sydney experience.
General Manager Andrew Mensforth said: “We are pleased to receive this prestigious award. The recognition of receiving a Virtuoso “Best of the Best” hotel award places Park Hyatt Sydney amongst the finest hotels in the world. The team at Park Hyatt Sydney has worked incredibly hard throughout our 11-month closure and this win is a big recognition to the team for an excellent job done.
The Park Hyatt Sydney has received five awards since re-opening in February 2012. They include the 2012 Tourism Accommodation Australia (NSW) Awards for Excellence ‘Deluxe Hotel Accommodation of the Year’ award and Travel + Leisure magazine’s IT List: The Best New Hotels 2012.
