Perth’s eastern landmark
The Perth Hyatt Regency was the first 5-star hotel built on the City’s eastern boundary. Originally called The Merlin Hotel, it was designed by Australian architect John Andrews and constructed in 1984 by Multiplex. It became The Hyatt Regency in 1988.
Now considered a Perth landmark, the Hyatt Regency is acknowledged for its brutalist design and architectural grandeur and unique use of clay face brick. In fact, over 4-million clay face bricks were hand laid to create this iconic Perth hotel.
