The Park Hyatt Vendome Paris is one the aspirational properties in the chain. Overlooking the Place Vendome the hotel is centrally located in the 2nd arrondissement. Set among luxury shopping such as Louis Vuitton, Cartier and Rolex among others, the Park Hyatt Vendome Paris is a shopper’s dream.
Like many Park Hyatt’s, the exterior is understated, and if not looking for the hotel, one could easily walk right by.
As you approach the hotel at least three doormen always seems to be present. Once you enter the hotel, the concierge desk and bellman will be directly towards your left.
Down a long marble hallway is the front desk. There are three separate counters rather than one long continuous desk.
Check-in was quick, efficient and professional. All Hyatt Diamond benefits were clearly explained, including the ability to have breakfast via room service rather than the restaurant.
I was upgraded to a Park Deluxe King, however the view was of the courtyard rather than of Rue De La Paix.
Upon entering the room, there is a Nespresso coffee maker directly to the right.
Along the left wall sits a long L-shaped desk and TV. There was a box of butter cookies that were complimentary for the stay. The cookies were individually wrapped and rather tasty.
A welcome amenity of six macaroons and a half bottle of champagne was also provided.
There is a small sitting area in the corner with only one chair.
The bathroom is located on the right and is rather spacious. There is an open closet located to the left with drawers to store your belongings as well as an area to place your suitcase.
There is a small vanity sink as well.
The main area of the bathroom has a single sink. The bottom of the sink is flush with the rest of the cabinet, so watch your toes! I managed to stub my toes a couple of times throughout the stay.
There is a large, deep tub as well as a shower with two shower heads, a handheld and rain shower. There is also a mirror in the shower area, which makes shaving more convenient.
The toilet is enclosed in its own room. It does have a wooden toilet seat, which probably went out of style 40 years ago.
Although the room is fairly spacious, it is sorely lacking in outlets. Trying to find adequate outlets is like playing a game of hide and seek. I only managed to find three outlets in the entire room, which is almost unacceptable in this day and age.
Breakfast for Diamond members in the restaurant includes the American Breakfast (50 Euro), which includes the buffet and eggs any style.
The buffet is not large, but the selection only contains high quality ingredients. There is quiche, sliced meats, vegetables, cereal, pastries, bread, yogurt and fruit. Breakfast also includes coffee and a selection of juice if you like. The mango juice is just heavenly.
The omelet was somewhat overcooked on the outside, yet still not quite set on the inside as it was “leaking” like a sinking ship. Despite its outward appearance, the taste was great.
Service throughout the hotel is top notch. Employees are friendly, congenial and professional, but not overly friendly.
Due to its great location and service, I would definitely stay here again. I did stay here on points, which is 22,000 per night, while the daily rate for the room was ~910 Euros (~$1275). Getting ~5.7 cents/point is a great redemption value.
Due to the upcoming changes in point redemptions along with the introduction of a new Category 7 in which this property will cost 30,000 Gold Passport points per night, make sure to book before the changes take place on January 7, 2014.
