For most Sydneysiders an address with a harbour view is a lifetime ambition – but none is likely to rival that from the Park Hyatt.

Guests enjoy a jaw-dropping 180-degree view of the harbour; with the Sydney Opera House occupying centre stage.

The hotel’s crisp, modern interiors are the perfect foil for such a sumptuous visual feast. With its rooftop pool, graceful service and world-class facilities this hotel is truly in a league of its own.

Surrounding area

Although its address is formally described as The Rocks, the Park Hyatt is actually set a little way back from the main thoroughfare – equal distance from Circular Quay and the city’s theatre district on Hickson Road.

Nearby attractions include the Sydney Observatory, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney BridgeClimb and the Sydney Opera House. The surrounding ‘Rocks’, the city’s oldest residential area, is packed with art galleries, boutiques, smart restaurants and lively pubs.
