Waaaay back in May I was given a voucher for a night’s stay at the Grand Hyatt Melbourne. This weekend the BF and I finally used it. We decided to make a day of it and headed in right on 2pm to check in.
I have been the Hyatt before for a function but had never stayed there, mainly because the rooms are CRAZY expensive.
Bowery to Williamsburg is a gorgeous little cafe. You can get sub and bagels and it all smells incredible. I am sucker for a good bagel. When we visited New York I think I ate one everyday. So naturally I ordered a bagel and schmear. Now, as Australians we don’t tend to understand the variety of bagel and schmear that is obviously available in the US. So I had to choose my bagel- seeded- and my schmear- scallion. There were so many to choose from, but I was happy with mine decision.
Dinner was at a fancy pants restaurant, so fancy I was not about to take photos of our dinner… no matter how much I wanted to.
We relaxed in the room and fell asleep on the huge bed. The beds are the best bit about hotel rooms in my opinion.
Well… the beds and the buffet breakfast! I find myself a little intimidated by a buffet. There is too much all happening at once. Too many options that I want on my plate. Bacon, sausage, mushroom and hash hit my plate first, followed by waffles with Nutella and strawberries. All inhaled while reading the paper and washed down with english breakfast tea.
Not a bad weekend if I do say so myself.
What did you do with your weekend?
