Bonjour tout le monde!
Paris is AMAZING!!
The people here are super friendly and helpful (when you get lost) if you can't speak fluent French. The Park Hyatt Paris- Vendome hotel is BELLE to be in, because it's like a world of its' own. I'm staying in the Park Executive Suite and I have my own floor-to-ceiling windows, a king bed …
We started real early that morning because we wanted to take full advantage (weird) of the complimentary breakfast at the hotel and get to the Louvre around opening times so we didn't have to wait in as ridiculous as a line. It was Monday but Europe had the day off because of Easter. Anyway the breakfast was complimentary to us, but that's not …
This morning we ate a light breakfast in our suite and then headed out to the Pompidou Center which is a large modern art museum where the building was built inside out. Next to it is the Stravinsky Fountain, where we found another street café for lunch. It's not like we actually had to seek out a café in Paris since I heard there were over 40,000 …

Historical Traveler Reviews Park Hyatt Paris - Vendome
where do i start.....i stayed there for 4 nights. i do not want to be too harsh on the hotel since the location is mindblowing beautiful and it has recently been refurbished. the staff is, except for the doorman and valet, sorry to be so harsh, useless. check-inn took forever, spa and gym were permanently void off attendants, which i find quite dangerous. if you ever pass out in the steam in the park hyatt, or tear a ligament in their gym, nobody will ever find you. the tv had a habit of switching itself on and for some reason always in the middle of the night at full volume and after requesting to have the tv changed, nothing ever happend in that department. but now it gets scary: i left my room to go for a walk and shut the door properly. when i returned the door was open. after security investigated the matter, i received a phonecall explaining that it was a chambermaid who forgot to close the door. no apology. in the evening my boss, who is a very well-known personality who stayed incognito at the hotel got stopped by a young lady who turned out to be a girlfriend of a member of staff, telling him that she is an actress in france and pressing her phonenumber on him. never ever stay there in incognito. the next day after checking out, the concierge came running out and stopped me, waving a bill for that i had not payed. after me taking a closer loook at the bill, it turned out it was not mine. no apology again and a crazed concierge on the rue de la paix, i have had enough!
The Park Hyatt Vendome is a beautiful hotel physically. That said, the service is perhaps the worst I have ever received at any hotel in Paris or otherwise. We had repeated problems getting our room cleaned; indeed on one particular Saturday, it took three to four requests between 2 pm and 8 pm to get the room cleaned. When the cleaning staff finally "cleaned," they left half-eaten food in the room. Complaints to the front desk were greated with a "c'est normal" attitude. In fact, we were often treated as if we were for the problem for having the gall to complain about lack of housekeeping in a 500 euro/night room. Other problems included the concierge failing to reserve a taxi on a Friday night after promising to do so and the hotel restaurant repeatedly trying to charge the full 60 euro buffet price for breakfast for bills that were supposed to be around 15-20. The guest relations manager was helpful and apologetic, but obviously was limited in what he could do.
This is the best hotel we have ever stayed at in Paris. The staff are all young and enthusiastic and their eagerness to please is delightful.
Me and my girlfriens stayrd at this hotel for two nights over a weekend in November.
Hotel was very good, check in staff very helpfull and a quick and smooth hassle free check in...
Room was of a very high standard, bathroom and particulaly shower area was excellent.
Restaurants were both good, but the Park restaurant was over priced for the food being served, try the other one instead.
Door staff also very helpfull, especially when trying to get taxis which is allways difficult in this area...
Only complaint being that bills in the bars and restaurants were sometimes "thrust" infront of you and on one occasion before our drinks had arrived this was not clever.
Overall a good hotel, but somewhat overpriced for what it was.
We stayed at the hotel in March 2003 on a weekend night. The service was fine, although the check-in girl who showed us to our room lost her aloofness when instructing us not to watch the CNN or read the NY Times - a reference of not supporting the Iraq War. The location is superb: the best part was to jog by the Seine and then take a shower in their gym. The room layout was excellent with spacious closet and bathroom area. Provided internet access for free at the reception. Bed very comfy. But ordered coffee which was undrinkable and overpriced. The TV channels were not correctly listed on the accompanying card.If you stay there for free, as we did, you cannot be too unahppy though. The location and room layout were the best fetaures.
Sleek, plush, modern
I stayed at the Park Hyatt Vendome in july 2003 for three nights with my girlfriend. We had a great time. The location is excellent. Our room was spacious with great views to the Vendome and the street. Make sure to ask for a room with an outside view, not a courtyard view. The bathrooms were excellent, and the furnishings plush. The service was superb, whether it was by the receptionists, the concierge, the doormen, the room service people, or the waiters/waitresses. The only blemish was their delay in their returning my dry cleaning, but that was immediately rectified by the manager. Their was no snobby feelings noted at all. Unlike the Ritz, next door, this hotel is not stuffy!
Travelers with an open mind will love the place. Very highly recommended
Stayed 3 nights here. Warm reception from doormen, who were always very helpful in getting taxis, finding us somewhere to eat late at night. Very modern & sleek reception & restaurant. Concierges were excellent - reserved exactly the tables I requested at several restaurants. Got us VIP tickets for Crazy Horse at a reduced rate - very friendly & efficient. Check-in very smooth - were upgraded to a deluxe room & shown both as I had requested a balcony room on the 5th floor. Our 3rd floor deluxe did not have the balcony, but was much larger than the balcony room & very comfortable - huge closets, free internet access, gorgeous bathrooms with separate toilet, and an unusual 'bath & shower room' with an English hotel shower head & sink in the shower area, in addition to the vanity sink. Excellent service - I asked for ice & when a man helping my husband with a unique net connecting problem noticed we wanted to chill wine in it, called & asked for a champagne backet & glasses instead of the ice bucket. If there was a problem, it was solved immediately. Very very very expensive - room service is unbelievably steep, but a wonderful location, gorgeous view of Place Vendome out our window & exemplary service. We would definitely stay there again.
A Sorry State of Affairs
-erratic service-staff in bad need of training, oftentimes ominously overattentive and consistently lacking in discretion for a hotel as aspirational as this one-rooms were spacious with lovely bathrooms-judging by the paintings in the bar, the interior decorator is a big fan of Hannibal Lector-lack of coordination amongst staff and bad communication.-could easily have spent a more pleasant weekend at a far cheaper hotel.-the best thing this hotel has ging for it is its location, meanwhile where is the GM? Has he forgotten he has a hotel to run? I would give the hotel's managing staff a 2-star rating.
Quiet and beautiful
What a nice hotel. The room was comfortable, high ceilings, nice furnishings, big, beautiful bathroom. The service was excellent. Everyone who worked there was pleasant and ready to do whatever you asked; but, they were unobtrusive and quiet. A plus for me. The location is very convenient. We had a wonderful stay. Absolutely no complaints.
