The Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome is the perfect complement to the soaring beauty and sophistication of what is one of the world’s truly breathtaking cities… but is it worth the price tag?
Quite simply, the service is flawless. Upon arriving, your welcome will be one ordinarily reserved for royalty. Our personal introduction to the hotel and to our room by one of the uniformly excellent counter staff instantly put as at ease. You won’t need your phrase book at any time, although my wife took advantage of the excellent service to practice her French.
We stayed in a Park Deluxe King Room, located on the street-side of the highest floor. The views of the surrounding streets beyond are charming and we had no trouble at all with noise. The sleeping quarters are, for the price, somewhat pokey, however the beds were perfectly comfortable and the room spotlessly clean.
The interior of the common rooms is one of refined opulence – the breakfast room oozes class – even the hallways that lead you to your room come with a warmth and a calmness not experienced elsewhere. Every step in this place is one of pure joy. Months on, the distinct scent of those hallways sporadically returns, its redolence immediately transporting me back to Paris.
We took breakfast in our room one morning, and then in the breakfast room the other. On both occasions, the quality of the food was superb, the almond tarts particularly memorable. The outstanding service and quality produce extends to the Park Hyatt’s resident restaurant, Le Pur’. Boasting one Michelin star and sophisticated surrounds, Pur’ delivered high-end cuisine at a high-end price. We dined here on our first night and opted for a multi-course tasting. The food was excellent, but be warned: it is astronomically expensive. We have eaten better food for much less, but it’s certainly a worthwhile experience; best enjoyed, I say, over many hours with your best Parisian insouciance.
Located in an unashamedly aristocratic quarter of Paris, the Park Hyatt puts you in easy walking distance of the spectacular Opera Garnier, the Jardin des Tuileries, the Louvre, Musee D’Orsay and the River Seine. For those who haven’t visited Paris before, it is an immense, sprawling city, so if you are hoping to be within walking distance of other attractions, such as Invalides, Champs-Elysees, the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the gorgeous Jardin du Luxembourg (our favourite spot in Paris), or Montmartre and the stunning Sacre Coeur, there are other excellent hotels better-located to meet your needs.
Overall, this is a superb way to experience Paris and splurge some serious money in the process. The overall experience almost justifies the price tag, but you’ll need to be fully prepared for the awaiting bill. For those planning on using Hyatt Gold Passport points to cover the cost of your stay, remember to sign into Gold Passport before you book online.
