Hyatt has announced the debut of its first Hyatt House property in Australia.

Let’s take a look at this exciting news!

Hyatt House’s Debut in Australia

Hyatt House South Melbourne will have nearly 100 rooms and will be situated near popular attractions such as the Royal Botanical Gardens and the Australian Grand Prix racetrack.

The hotel will have several different room types, ranging from studios to 1-bedroom residential-style Kitchen Suites. Amenities will include an all-day lounge, a 24/7 fitness room, and communal spaces.

“The brand brings all the comforts of home to guests who do not just want to stay somewhere, but to live somewhere, even if only for two nights,” said David Udell, Asia Pacific Group President at Hyatt. “This exciting milestone also reflects Hyatt’s continued growth of our extended-stay portfolio, enabling guests to experience our signature care in new ways.”

The hotel is scheduled to open for guests in 2025 and marks the extended-stay Hyatt House’s debut in Australia.

Booking Hyatt Hotels in Australia

Hyatt has over a dozen branded hotels in Australia, with an additional 4 in New Zealand. You’ll find several notable brands, such as Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, and Park Hyatt. While we wait for the Hyatt House to open, let’s look at a few of Hyatt’s properties Down Under.

You’ll find properties spanning Hyatt’s award chart, such as the low-cost Hyatt Regency Perth (a Category 2 property) or the Category 4 Grand Hyatt Melbourne.

But perhaps the best hotel Hyatt has to offer in Australia is the Park Hyatt Sydney. Depending on dates, this Category 8 hotel can cost between 35,000 and 45,000 World of Hyatt points per night. Still, it’s certainly worth it, given its luxurious offerings and prime location on the Sydney Harbour.

Hyatt is one of the few hotel chains still using an award chart, though the chain does use peak and off-peak pricing. That means you’ll pay more — or less — depending on your travel dates.

Hot Tip:

While it’s not the easiest task to earn World of Hyatt points, if you have a card that earns Chase Ultimate Rewards or Bilt Rewards points, you can transfer them to World of Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio.

Final Thoughts

This is fantastic news for Hyatt fans who will have a low-cost points stay in Melbourne in the coming years. In the meantime, check out Hyatt’s other hotels across Australia and New Zealand, including several high-end options!
