  1. On a previous stay in Melbourne, I arrived early and my room wasn’t ready. Out and about, two hours later, the front desk called to say my room was ready. I let it go to voicemail. I use Project Fi, and the Google voice speech to text translation turned “This is Lana from Park Hyatt Melbourne…” with Australian accent into “This is Lana from Papaya Melvin…”

    Not at all relevant to anything. Just the mention of Park Hyatt Melbourne reminded me of this.

  2. Nice lounge at the Park Hyatt Melbourne. Decent food and coffee but best of all excellent service. Very accommodating to my dietary needs and always a smile. Great views too
