In the lobby, neutral shades of white stone vie with mahogany woodwork, and the clean lines of its communal areas are the perfect foil for modern sculptures. Like a modern art museum, this contemporary palace hotel fits in well with the jewellers in the neighbourhood. Popular with Parisians who meet in the vast lounges or on the indoor terrace for a gourmet breakfast, this flagship of the luxury Hyatt chain will charm fans of minimalist purity.
Among the 156 rooms, including 45 luxury suites, those overlooking the Place Vendôme are the most attractive, but all have the highest standard of comfort, with service to match. Luxury is, as they say, in the details. The Park Hyatt reassures its knowledgeable clientele with products by Blaise Mautin, the chic Parisian perfumer, and its spa, which carries the coveted La Mer brand products.
The hotel's Pur' restaurant – with chef Jean-François Rouquette at the helm - is a French gastronomical gem and well worth a booking.
