Grand Hyatt Melbourne’s Ambassador Suite

So, after trying the Park Hyatt it was time to try the Grand Hyatt Hotel Melbourne. I wouldn’t have much time to spend here – after all I wanted to maximize my Qantas First Class longe experience the morning after, meaning I would have to wake up at 4am. But I figured that I would give this hotel a try.
My limo dropped me off in front of the hotel. A bell boy opened my door but didn’t even offered to help me with my luggage… I thought this was rather unusual for a five star hotel, but  Ijust proceeded to the escalator by myself to reach the lobby; this was spacious, full of marble, luxurious. The check in agent was very cordial, proceeded to check me in, and informed me that I would be upgraded – for free! – to an Ambassador Suite. Yes, an Ambassador Suite at the 33rd floor. At first, I just smiled and said thank you – thinking he just made a mistake or that I heard incorrectly – I was tired after all.
Then I proceeded to the elevator… I check my room key… and it says room #33xx… What the… I press “33” on the floor pad… I get to my floor… walk to my room number… and it was indeed the Ambassador Suite…!
Now, I don’t know what happened, but the nice front desk guy decided that I was posh enough to deserve an upgrade to a $1,300 per night room. Well you know what? Fine with me!
The apartment was huge! A living room, two bathrooms, a kitchenette… Modern furniture, nice sofa, nice dining table… Nice bedroom, immense bathroom, nice changing area… Wow, this room left me speechless – especially because the downtown view from up here was spectacular! I will let my pictures speak for me, though.
Welcome!

Welcome!

What can I say? A short but memorable stay!

P.S.
