The Park Hyatt Paris is a beautiful hotel located in one of the best neighborhoods in Paris. Great restaurants, high end shopping and all the sights of Paris are within walking distance or just a short metro ride away from the nearby Opera metro station.
Every staff member we encountered went out of their way to make sure everything about our stay was perfect. The hotel is in pristine condition and you can tell the staff takes great pride and care in insuring your experience is nothing less than five star. Here are some tips if you’re considering a stay at the Park Hyatt as well as Paris in general:
Tip #1 – If you don’t have a Hyatt Visa card, get one. As a new card holder you get two free nights to any Hyatt anywhere in the world and an additional free night each year that you have the card. On the nights we stayed here the room rate on the Hyatt website was €1,100 a night. Use it for two nights at the Park Hyatt Paris and you’ll save up to €2000 or more. You will also receive Platinum status in the Hyatt Gold Passport program that among other benefits includes free wifi at every Hyatt hotel. Without this benefit, wifi at the Park Hyatt Paris costs €19 per day. We were also offered a free buffet breakfast each morning (based on our Gold Passport status), for two. This was another €40 a day savings.
Tip #2 – A cab ride from the airport to the hotel will run €50 including a tip. There is bus service (called the Roissy Bus), that costs €10 per person and takes you from any terminal at CDG to the Opera metro stop. From here it’s less than a five minute walk down one street to the hotel. You can also take the train but you’ll have to make a couple of changes along the way and depending on the amount of luggage you have may not be a feasible option. Whatever option you choose, make sure you have enough euros on you to pay the fare. The exchange rate at CDG is awful (as it is with most airports).
Tip #3 – Ask for a room that faces the Rue de la Paix, the main street the Hyatt is located on. We loved the fact that we could open our windows and step out onto the ledge and watch the action down below or up towards the Vendome. With the windows closed you didn’t hear a sound from the street below. Most of the other rooms in the hotel look into courtyards.
Tip #4 – Get the Paris Metro app by mxData for your iPhone and use the metro. You can purchase a multi-day pass either through the machines or at the ticket windows available at major stops (like Opera, the closest to the Hyatt). This is an excellent app and within minutes you’ll be navigating the metro like a local. While cabs are readily available at the airport, they can be almost impossible to find anywhere else in the city. Using the metro is by far the best and most cost effective way to get around.
Tip #5 – Going to Louvre? Don’t buy tickets online (and pay a markup), and definitely don’t get on line at the main entrance (which can be up to two hours). Instead, enter the museum through the Carousel mall entrance on rue de Rivoli (look for the red awning), take the escalator down into and through the mall and into the museum. Purchase your tickets (at face value), and walk right in. It’s really just that easy.
Tip #6 – Have dinner at Georges Opera. It’s a two minute walk from the Hyatt (left out of the hotel to the next street, Ru Daunou , turn left to #17). Excellent and highly rated bistro with great food (the duck was outstanding) at reasonable prices (by Paris standards) Three courses for €30. They have some nice wines and a great piano player! The staff is extremely accommodating to non-French speaking clientele. Something you don’t find at every restaurant in Paris.
The Park Hyatt Paris is simply the perfect hotel in the best location in Paris.
