The Lyall is located a mere 10 minutes from the center of Melbourne and just a 5 minute walk from the tram.  The five-story property with modern additions greets guests in an intimate reception area decorated with marble and carpeted areas in an Asian minimalist ambiance.  The Bistro Lyall, the hotels restaurant, is one of the best places to dine in the trendy neighborhood of South Yarra.  There is also an adjoining champagne bar and after 5PM it is one of the great places in Melbourne not only to meet fellow guests but locals as well. 

L.A.-style cabanas complements the chic spa and health center and a library. Local businesses provide guests with discounted shopping, while laptops and bicycles are free for guests to use. Expanded meeting facilities can cope with groups of up to 60 people, and the efficient business center is always accessible. Parking is free. Pets are not permitted.

The superbly appointed Lyall suites bespeak comfort and utility with Asian-inspired decor complemented by original contemporary art, custom furniture and plush fabrics. Even the patio and balcony furniture is top-notch. The impressive amenities includes three dual-line phones with data ports and voice mail, laptop-sized safes, excellent work space, high-speed Internet access, fax machines, and good closets with robes and slippers.

Common throughout are full kitchens, laundry facilities, TVs with free movies and DVDs, minibars, and king beds. Stylish, fully equipped spa baths pamper guests with heated floors and anti-fog mirrors. The two-bedroom suites have second baths, while rooftop units boast city views and even smarter amenities. Seven units are wheelchair-accessible, and all areas, save the balconies and the cigar lounge, are smoke-free. Room service runs nonstop.

The local knowledge of the dedicated proprietors ensures that guests feel at home in the hotel and its surrounds. Flexible to the requirements of guests, the loyal staff provides superior service at this exceptionally personalized operation. 

When the Lyall first opened it attracted sophisticated leisure travelers that were usually sent by a Virtuoso travel agent as the hotel is member of the top rated consortium.  However that has all changed and now select corporate executives have discovered this gem of a hotel.
