Ten hot hotels from Hyatt
3 March 2008
Park Hyatt Milan
Milan has long been the capital of fashion, and the Park Hyatt Milan is certainly in keeping with the refined style and sophisticated elegance that characterises the city. The first Hyatt accommodation to be built in Italy, the hotel has been constructed around a beautiful historical palazzo dating back to 1870, and its interiors use the elegant history of the building to combine a sense of contemporary, clean design with its original material.
In line with the extravagance of Milan, this glamorous Park Hyatt has created a number of indulgent packages, from VIP pampering for guest’s VID (very important dogs) to the inclusion of Porsche rental with bookings in either the Presidential Suite or Diplomatic Suite!
Since reunification in 1990, Berlin has evolved into a dynamic, sexy and creative city where a surprising light heartedness lurks beneath an austere exterior. It has emerged as Europe’s avant-garde cultural hub, and New York architect Tony Chi has embodied the spirit of the city in this wonderful hotel.
Grand Hyatt Berlin Hotel anchors the newly built heart of Berlin at Potsdamer Platz with powerful architecture and innovative interior design that encompasses an exceptional, modern art concept throughout the hotel. Grand Hyatt is conveniently located within walking distance of the Berlin Tiergarten, the Mitte district, the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate, making guests’ stay in the city a truly authentic experience.
Park Hyatt Paris – Vendôme
Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme is a truly luxurious Parisian hotel, located in the heart of the city on the prestigious Rue de la Paix. It is within walking distance of the Place Vendôme, the Place de la Concorde, the Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay are also nearby. This is the place to be seen in one of the slickest cities in the world.
Its fabulous new 2700 sq ft ‘Blaise Martin’ spa has fast become one of the most popular in the city, and the ‘in-suite spas’ containing a bathroom with whirlpool bath, hammam, steam room shower and a dedicated table for massages, make this stunning hotel all the more exclusive.
ANdAZ Liverpool Street, London
Formerly The Great Eastern Hotel, the first of Hyatt’s ANdAZ hotels is located directly beside Liverpool Street Station in the heart of London’s financial and cultural district, the colourful East End. Standing proud in a splendid 19th century red brick building, prepare to be impressed at the innovative 21st century contrast that lies within!
Once you have paid that first visit to ANdAZ Liverpool Street, you will see how this fascinating concept is revolutionising the travel industry today. There is a decisive focus on personal and attentive service, yet this is kept simple even as you walk through the door. Any signs of a front desk or check-in lines are omitted and are replaced by a comfortable lounge and warm greeting from a member of staff. True luxury should be effortless, and this is what ANdAZ is all about.
Hyatt Regency Kiev
This new hotel has a fabulous location, lying in the very heart of the city centre. Overlooking the Old Town, which features many of Kiev’s many historical sights, the Hyatt Regency is within walking distance of the cathedral of St Sophia, Saint-Michael’s Monastery and the boutiques of Kreschatyk Street.
The hotel boasts a whole host of luxury amenities, amongst them a luxury Spa Naturel, where guests can enjoy a multitude of treatments and spa equipment. It also holds state-of-the-art fitness centre, Club Olympus, which offers a 25 metre swimming pool, saunas and whirlpool bath, and a business centre for those who are visiting on business and not leisure!
Park Hyatt Zurich
Innovational, stylish and chic, this hotel is in the centre of Zurich’s bustling business district. Not to be overlooked for leisure visitors, however, Zurich also boasts a proud artistic history which is certainly worth exploring. Zurich witnessed, for example, the birth of the eccentric Dada art movement with the creation of the 'artist tavern' known as Cabaret Voltaire in 1916, and has been home to many influential reformers, from Lenin to James Joyce!
The hotel itself is just steps away from the fashionable Bahnhofstrasse shopping street, the Lake of Zurich, the Zürich Kongresshaus and the Old Town, and is thus centred where business meets leisure. In all public areas of the Park Hyatt Zurich exquisite art objects are displayed in accordance to a carefully prepared program presenting an ensemble of representative modern and contemporary art pieces. The whole concept of the hotel focuses on elegance and beauty as well as on wit and irony – a rare display which is not to be missed.
Grand Hyatt Cairo
The Grand Hyatt Cairo is a luxury landmark hotel situated on Roda Island; a peaceful haven with all of its stunning rooms overlooking the River Nile. The hotel enjoys a perfect location in the centre of the business and commercial district of the city, and yet it is also very close to Cairo’s many cultural and tourist attractions, including the Pyramids of Giza, Cairo Tower and the Cairo Museum.
Of its nine top-class restaurants, the magnificent Revolving Restaurant is the highest restaurant in the Middle East. It has unprecedented views of Cairo and is 30 metres in diameter whilst rotating 360 degrees in 75 minutes, bringing the Pyramids, the River Nile and the entire city of Cairo all into view.
Park Hyatt Dubai
One of the newer members of the Park Hyatt brand, the Park Hyatt Dubai a hidden treasure at the waterfront between the world famous Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club, with the city centre, prime business districts and world class shopping just minutes away.
This hotel is a peaceful haven harmoniously in contrast to the vibrancy and heart beat of the city of gold, and its Condé Nast award winning spa is utterly exemplary of this feat. This Amara spa is an attractive sanctuary of luxury and tranquility, where exotic rituals are used to create an atmosphere in perfect harmony with the retreat feel of the hotel itself.
Park Hyatt Dubai is currently offering a ‘Pamper at the Park’ package which includes vouchers for either the spa or food/beverage alongside half board accommodation.
Ararat Park Hyatt Moscow
Moscow is the barometer and nucleus of the changes sweeping through Russia. Nowhere are Russia's contrasts more apparent than here - ancient monasteries and ultra-modern monoliths stand side by side, and 'New Russian' millionaires and poverty-stricken pensioners walk the same streets.
With this in mind it is natural that the hotel’s architecture harmoniously blends contemporary character with tradition. The ‘Café Ararat’ restaurant for example is a replica of the historical Café Ararat, a landmark of Moscow during the 1960’s, whilst the innovative style and comfort hotel offers more than the usual standards of a contemporary five-star hotel.
Located in the very heart of the city, within immediate vicinity of the Bolshoi Theatre and only a few minutes walk from the Kremlin, Red Square, the Parliament house and the central business district Ararat Park Hyatt Moscow is a timeless, world-class, residential style hotel; one of the best in this popular city.
Grand Hyatt Muscat
The areas surrounding Muscat city are diverse in scenery and culturally rich, and for all round sun, luxury and leisure at its very opulent, the Grand Hyatt Muscat is an offer you cannot refuse!
A haven for water-sports enthusiasts, Omani waters are home to some of the most amazing marine life in the world, and as the hotel stands on the sandy beach of Shatti Al Qurm, guests can conveniently explore what the ocean has to offer.
Historic tombs, monuments and forts are also extremely accessible, with tours to the Wahiba Sands or Jebel Akhdar and Jebel Shams mountains arranged at the hotel, as well as opportunities for caving, hiking and abseiling.
