This hotel is a magnet for the elite — Elton John, Bette Midler, Jerry Seinfeld, Nicole Kidman and the Rolling Stones, just to get the name dropping started. And that was before the Park Hyatt Sydney closed for sixteen months for a $60 million renovation. Following its much-anticipated 2010 reopening, it has been captivating stars of film, food and more. Jamie Oliver has checked in. So have Lady Gaga, Zac Efron and Rihanna. No doubt they come for the discreet atmosphere, classy day spa with rooftop pool and two-bedroom suite (said to be the most expensive in the city) featuring a private elevator, steam room, indoor/outdoor dining areas, specially designed privacy curtains and a spectacular view of the harbor and Sydney Opera House. As for that premium view, mere mortals can savor it simply by booking one of the hotel's lovely Opera View Rooms.
