Which Hyatt?

Is the Hyatt Vendome that much better than the Hyatt Paris Madeline?

They would upgrade us at the Madeline, we would have a standard room at the Vendome

Thanks!

I've stayed at the Vendome 3 times, twice in a standard room and wouldn't hesitate to return. I haven't stayed at the Madeleine. What room type would they upgrade you to at the Madeleine?

A king room- are the standard rooms at the Vendomme large enough for 2? My husband and I are use to a King bed-and we will be there for 6 nights

"are the standard rooms at the Vendomme large enough for 2" I would hope so!

The Park Queen (standard room) is 26 to 30-sq-metre (280 to 323 sf), but you won't find a king bed in the standard room. Even the Suite doesn't have an American size king bed, but it's large enough none-the-less.

The standard rooms at the Hyatt Paris Madeline are slightly smaller then those at the Vendommen. The deluxe king rooms are about the same size as those at the Vendommen. The beds are the same at both hotels.

The standard rooms at the Vendome are certainly large enough for 2 (but no king beds) and possibly comparable to the deluxe rooms at the Madeleine. Our last stay was for 6 nights.

The Park Hyatt Vendome is one of the most comfortable, hospitable, great location hotels I have ever stayed in, we've been there at least 8 times on points. each trip, except for one, we have been lucky enough to get an upgrade from the standard room to a king (we are platinum members of Hyatt). however, even the standard rooms are big enough for 2. I would take the Vendome over the Madeline just because! and we've seen Roger Federer, Chris Martin and Sting there!

The Hyatt Madeline is pretty nice. I have enjoyed my stay there.

We have been lucky to get the upper floor each time and can see the top of the Eiffel Tower. The location is away from the main drag. The service is excellent. They made a mistake on booking a tour for us but made it up by booking a private car for a trip to Versailles. We didn't ask to be made whole, we figure we can go the next day. I guess someone told the manager about the situation. We like that there is a grocery store across the street.

That being said, I like the location of Park Hyatt better. I am hoping to stay there next time on points.

It pays to have their credit card and be loyal to Hyatt. We have stayed on points a lot of times.

Shona, I dug up some of my pics taken in the 80's and 90's just to give you a feel for Budapesht. I was there both times on an interview mission in it's 60,000 Jewish population.

You migth want to look in on the very unique Hilton, a former army barracks. We loved it from a room with great, full view of Parliament and the Danube. After several visits, we decided on the Buda side, quieter, greener and with some elegance. Good restos and entertainment all closeby...and the historic spa at the venerable Gellert Hotel down the street. It's a pleasant walk over the bridge to the Pesht side, also.

Here they are, Shona. You will have a very nice weekend in Budapest...guaranteed! Be sure to enjoy some coffee and dessert at the famous, venerable Hungaria Cafe...see pic (at one time the New Yorker)...full of art deco! Nice place for lunch, too. It's on one of the main streets, Erzabeth Korut (once known as Lenin Korut.Times, they have changed.) Gerbaud's at the end of Vaci Utca, the pedestrian street is also a fine old pastry stop.

The two women you'll see in the pics are my two late wives representng 63 years of marvelous marriages. Now I'm alone, but with a sizeable, loving family all closeby. Don't mean to get personal, BUT it's who I am...so there!

If I had to choose a Hyatt, I would want to go to the one at Porte Maillot and get a room on one of the upper floors, because I rarely do more in a hotel room than sleep, use the bathroom and look out of the window when there is a view. And Porte Maillot is a much less stodgy area than either Vendome or Madeleine.

The Porte Maillot Hyatt, as nice as it is, is only a 4-star, not quite up to par with the others.. Besides, the rooms are much smaller, unless you opt for a suite.

Well, as I said, I have no plans to hold the debutante ball in my room.
