You ready for another review of the Park Hyatt Paris? Of course you are.
The Park Hyatt Paris Vendome is a great hotel that will make you feel happy when you check in but leave you depressed when you check out. The depression comes from the reality of knowing that you won’t be able to return to the hotel for a lengthy vacation because the price is beyond your budget, and the points are a bit steep at 30k a night.
Our room was not ready so we were asked if we wanted to have a drink while we waited. We were seated and presented with a menu of cocktails. The price was no less than 20 euros. Poor people pretending to be rich might rationalize paying for the drink. (See Naples Tour Guide.) Rich people would not pay that much for a drink. And TPOL just asks if the drink is free or if he has to pay. (TPOL being TPOL.) The waitress said we could order whatever. Obviously, we went with the most expensive drink on the menu, the Touched Harmony. (Again, TPOL being TPOL.) It was a champagne something for 29 euros. It was actually awful and I’d be livid if I’d paid anything for it.
After drinking this terrible concoction, we were told that our room was ready.
The room was not a suite, but who cares? It had huge windows that opened to the courtyard and a big bed to do romantic work.
Emirates could learn something from the Park Hyatt. The bathroom was accented with gold but wasn’t gaudy like the A380.
Good hotels have an espresso machine. Great hotels have one that is 1)plugged in 2) filled with water. The Park Hyatt met both requirements and came with six pods of coffee. (I kept the extras.)
The Creepy Guy
The hotel featured an abundance of this guy:
On the ground floor, there is a haven away from the hustle and bustle of life. It has a hot tub that is piping hot, a steam room, and a sauna. It also has all the Evian water you could drink. Many times I neglect to use the facilities of the hotel because I’m running around doing too much. If you go to the Park Hyatt, make time for the spa.
It’s overrated. (see full review here.) If you are a Diamondalist then opt for room service.
Nothing says classy Park Hyatt than late night McDonald’s, especially on your birthday. Unfortunately, they don’t deliver.
I am sorry that you had to read another review of the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendome, but there’s a reason the hotel has great reviews, and there’s a reason that many people burn their points or Chase certificate here. It has everything you want in a hotel and a bit more than that. I would love to return for a few more nights, if only I could.
