Park Hyatt Paris Vendôme Review
Understated luxury with a contemporary Zen vibe differentiates this Hyatt from its more classic neighbors between the Place Vendôme and Opéra Garnier. Five Haussmann-era office buildings have been converted into a showcase for polished beige limestone, mahogany veneer surfaces, and bronze sculptures. The minimalist vibe in the rooms extends to the Japanese-inspired baths, underfloor heating, and spacious dressing areas. Spa treatments feature French Carita products, and the entire hotel has Wi-Fi access. Head to the Pur, with its open kitchen within view of the dining room rotunda. Enjoy afternoon tea in La Cheminée or after-hours cocktails in artsy Le Bar.
Recently named one of eight official palace hotels in France by the French government, the elegant Vendome fits right in with its neighboring Place Vendôme and the Opéra Garnier. Behind it's lovely 19th-century façade you'll find a world-class spa, Michelin starred restaurant, and 40 stunning Ed Tuttle-designed suites. Sensual but understated, rooms have a neutral palette of silk fabrics, lacquered mahogany and bronze sculptures, and are equipped with everything from underfloor heating in the limestone bathrooms to Blu-ray DVD players. In 2011, John Nollet (hair stylist to the stars) unpacked his bags and began offer Hair Room Service in Suite 101.
