I do not usually write about chains but my experience at the Park Hyatt Vendome was so special that I had to share my experience. From the moment I checked in to the time I left it was shear perfection! At the Park Hyatt you experience true customer service and attention to detail at its best.

When you enter the concierge team sits to your left and you then walk down a lovely hallway past the Orchid Restaurant to handle your check-in in a discreet area overlooking the outdoor café in the courtyard. The hotel is plain & simple just lovely offering the business or leisure traveler privacy, discreet luxury and close walking proximity to many historical sights. If high end shopping is your forte then you are in the perfect location.

If the weather permits the outdoor café in the courtyard is just breathtaking with lounge music playing softly and providing a true sanctuary to relax, reflect and take in Paris. The breakfast in the Orchid Restaurant is lovely with a buffet or al la carte menu.

The rooms are in soothing palettes of beige, brown and dark wood. I had a lovely suite overlooking the courtyard with large majestic windows, a separate dressing area, living room and beautifully appointed bathroom with a steam shower and a state of a the art toilet.

Paris is truly one of my favorite cities in the globe but I had a hard time leaving this hotel. The service is so welcoming and gracious that I look forward to coming back very soon!
