Following a redevelopment of the Grand Hyatt Melbourne’s public areas of the hotel, a complete interior redesign of the guest rooms is underway with the hotel’s premium suites, Grand Club lounge and Club floors now complete.
The complete interior redesign program commenced in October 2009, and all 546 rooms will be complete by 2011. The project is isolated floor by floor, ensuring that there is minimal disruption to in-house guests. The complete redesign includes an update of the carpets, drapery and furniture.
Renowned designer Joseph Pang completed the design concept, his brief to match the luxury image of the newly refurbished public areas with a contemporary residential style.
The Grand Hyatt Melbourne’s guest room have
undergone a complete refurbishment
The brand new design concept enhances the hotel’s uninterrupted Melbourne city views, with new custom-made beds facing the floor-to-ceiling windows. The new work area comprises an L-shaped sofa, a round table and a leather upholstered armchair, a total departure from the
conventional work desk and chair. This comfortable and efficient work area next to the window suits both business and leisure travellers, enabling them to appreciate the Melbourne skyline while watching the LCD flat-screen TV or enjoying in-room dining.
Guests booking into a new Club room will also enjoy access to the redesigned Grand Club lounge. Situated on the 31st floor, the lounge offers panoramic city and river views, deluxe complimentary breakfast, all-day refreshments and evening drinks with canapés. The lounge has been stylishly transformed with a new welcoming entrance and updated furniture to ensure the highest level of personalised service.
Along with the interior design, the guest room redesign programme is also an important opportunity for the hotel to extend its water- and energy-saving initiatives. All rooms will be fitted with sensors to determine when guests have left the room. The room control system will then set back the AC system and shut off all lighting until guests return. Energy-efficient lighting will be used throughout all rooms, and water-saving devices will be fitted to the basin and shower. These green initiatives complement the upgrades to plant equipment already implemented to help manage the hotel’s energy and water consumption responsibly.
