This favorite of fashionable types set in leafy South Yarra combines genteel and hip styles in a delightful way. Offering grand services on a personal scale, the Lyall is both cozy and cosmopolitan. Furnishings are muted and tasteful, from the warm, forest green library off the reception area, with its gas fireplace and air of a gentleman’s club, to the spacious suites—there are 40—all of which have terraces (some look out at the street’s fairy light-sprinkled trees). Bathrooms feature bathtubs that are modern and capacious, with lots of intriguing but unexplained buttons. The staff here is discreet and wonderfully helpful.
