Melbourne is a blend of bustling laneways, world-class restaurants, roaring sporting events and captivating museums. The locals love their coffee and drink it in abundance. There's always a sense of excitement to attend Melbourne, like attending a sports event, sipping a cocktail and uncovering the secrets within Melbourne's art-filled laneways.

Nothing should stand between you and your desire to explore a city like Melbourne, and Hyatt Centric Melbourne is situated in the perfect location to launch your journey. See the sights before returning to your contemporary room equipped with luxurious bathroom amenities by Mr Smith. It is the ideal way to relax and recharge before another day of discovery.   

Located in a prime location in the heart of Melbourne's fast-emerging downtown, providing travelers with an ideal setting for discovering the city's authentic attractions and hidden gems. Located on the corner of Downie Street and Flinders Lane, the hotel is a perfect base for exploring the city, both for locals and tourists.

Designed by Architectus Australia and Hecker Guthrie Interiors and built by Hickory, Hyatt Centric Melbourne features 277 contemporary guest rooms over 25 levels. The stylish yet understated interiors were inspired by Melbourne's urban fabric, including the city's Hoddle Grid business district, custom-designed rugs in the rooms and public areas, as well as Victorian era-inspired brickwork.

Through a curated collection of soft furnishings and light fixtures by local designers, the design pays homage to Melbourne's history in wool production and during the Gold Rush, allowing guests to discover the various aspects of the city. Hyatt Centric Melbourne collaborates with emerging and established local artists, food producers, and designers to capture the unique spirit of Melbourne.
