If you’re a fan of Hyatt, chances are the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme is on your points bucket list. It’s an aspirational property and one that many travelers dream of staying at. I’m no different, so when I was planning a recent anniversary trip, I chose Paris specifically to stay at the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme.

In this review, I’ll share what you need to know about this hotel, including the cost, location, amenities, and Hyatt elite benefits.

Booking Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme

Booking the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme is a splurge, whether you’re paying with points or cash. Not surprisingly, I booked using World of Hyatt points. It’s a Category 8 hotel that costs 35,000 (off-peak), 40,000 (standard), or 45,000 (peak) points per night.

I transferred points from Chase Ultimate Rewards at a 1:1 ratio to make the booking. It was a lot of points, but totally worth it, in my opinion.

I paid 165,000 points for 4 nights (3 standard nights plus 1 peak night.) The cash cost for my stay in May 2024 would have been $4,647. That means I got 2.82 cents per point in value, which is better than our current valuation of Chase points at 2 cents each.

Had I paid cash for this stay, I would have used The World of Hyatt Credit Card to earn up to 9 points total for Hyatt stays — 4 bonus points per $1 spent on qualified purchases at Hyatt hotels and up to 5 base points per $1 from Hyatt as a World of Hyatt member.

Hot Tip:

If you’d like to stay at the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, too, make sure you’re earning lots of World of Hyatt points. You can also earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points and Bilt Rewards points since both of these currencies transfer to Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio.

Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme Location

Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme is centrally located in the heart of Paris, near Place Vendôme in the 1st arrondissement. It’s within easy walking distance of the Tuileries Garden, Place de la Concorde, and 2 of the best museums in Paris: the Louvre and the Musée d’Orsay.

The Louvre is just a 15-minute walk from Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme.

The hotel is located about 20 miles from Paris Charles de Gaulle International Airport (CDG) and about 15 miles from Paris Orly Airport (ORY). Gare du Nord, the main train station, is less than 2 miles away.

We took the Réseau Express Régional B train, or RER B, from Charles de Gaulle Airport. Uber is also available in Paris for those who prefer not to walk from the train station to the hotel.

Hot Tip:

Uber Cash, including any monthly credits you may earn from The Platinum Card® from American Express or American Express® Gold Card, isn’t valid in Paris. These credits only work in countries that use U.S. dollars as currency.

Checking In

As soon as my husband and I walked in the door, we were greeted and directed to the check-in desk further inside the hotel (the concierge desk was right next to the entrance).

The concierge desk is just inside the front entrance of the hotel.

“J’ai une réservation,” I awkwardly said, using my not-so-awesome French skills. Thankfully, the woman checking us in actually understood me (and she spoke English, so I didn’t need to stumble through the rest of the conversation).

Checking in to the hotel.

The desk clerk thanked me for being a Hyatt Globalist member and offered me a 4 p.m. late checkout. No suite upgrades were available, but she upgraded me to a King Deluxe room from a standard Park King room.

I checked before I arrived and knew that there were many suites available, but the standard suite, the Park Suite King, wasn’t. (The Park Suite King wasn’t available even a year out when I made this reservation, so I wasn’t able to apply a Suite Upgrade Award.) It was a little disappointing that the hotel wouldn’t bump me up to a premium suite, but that’s how it worked out.

After check-in was complete, we were escorted up to our room on the third floor.

Hot Tip:

If you want to use a Suite Upgrade Award at the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, look for a Park Suite King room. This is the standard suite and the only room type you can upgrade to using a Suite Upgrade Award.

Elite Benefits

Globalist benefits I utilized on this stay included:

  • Complimentary internet
  • Free daily breakfast
  • Complimentary bottle of water daily
  • Room upgrade based on availability upon arrival

There were several additional benefits that were not applicable on this stay:

  • Late 4 p.m. checkout
  • Club lounge access
  • Priority access to available rooms when checking in early
  • Complimentary parking on free night awards

King Bed Deluxe Room

While it was disappointing that I wasn’t upgraded to a suite, the room I got was very nice, so I didn’t let it ruin my day.

At 378 square feet, the King Bed Deluxe room was slightly larger than the standard Park Room King (323 square feet).

The high ceilings and large windows (which actually opened) made it feel larger than it was.

I loved that you could open the windows.

We were delighted to find a welcome gift to help us celebrate our anniversary: a cake, juices, and a heart-shaped balloon.

The hotel left us some treats as a welcome gift.

The room was decorated in warm woods with gold accents. There were sculptures everywhere — under the lights, on the walls, and even on the door handles. I found the sculptures intriguing — some looked as if they were dancing, while some looked downright creepy.

The room was fairly basic, but it had an understated luxury vibe.

A large desk area with a TV was just to the right of the door. There were also 2 USB outlets here, which were the only ones in the room.

To the left of the door was the coffee setup and minibar. If every in-room coffee setup could be like the one at Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, I’d be a very happy girl. There was an espresso machine and an electric kettle so you could easily heat water to make an Americano (I loved this!)

In room coffee and tea at Park Hyatt Paris
The in-room coffee and tea setup was excellent.

But the best part was that the housekeeping staff filled the water carafe in the coffee machine for me each day. It’s little touches like this that make a hotel stay special.

Right under the coffee maker was a drawer containing cups, saucers, and all of the extras you would need to make your coffee or tea. In my travels, I have noticed that many Hyatt hotels offer packs of coffee whitener instead of actual creamer. This is a pet peeve of mine, so when I see tiny packets of actual milk, I get giddy! (Yeah, I know I take hotel coffee too seriously.)

The fridge was right underneath the coffee maker. It was filled with snacks and drinks to purchase, with little room for anything else.

Bathroom

The bathroom was just as elegant as the bedroom. Stocked with super fluffy towels, bathrobes, and slippers, it was what you’d expect in a bathroom at a Park Hyatt hotel.

If you have read any of my previous hotel reviews, you may know that, in addition to hotel coffee makers, I am also obsessed with hotel showers. The shower at Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme didn’t disappoint, and it had one of the most unique features I have ever seen in a hotel shower: a sink!

There was a sink inside the shower.

The shower was spacious and had great water pressure and plenty of hot water — a perfect combination. The bathtub was right next to the shower. It was so nice to return to this after a long day of walking all over Paris.

Shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel from Blaise Mautin Parfumeur were available in full-sized containers.

The closet was in the bathroom. It didn’t have doors and was open to the bathroom, which is a feature I love. I don’t unpack much in hotels, and open closets like this one just seem so much more convenient to me.

There were 2 sides to the closet area, so there was plenty of room to hang clothes and store luggage.

The toilet was in a separate water closet with a door next to the bathroom’s sink and vanity area.

Food and Beverage

Café Jeanne

Breakfast at Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme was served each morning at Café Jeanne. I have Hyatt Globalist status, so the American breakfast was included in my stay (room service breakfast was also available).

The American breakfast included the breakfast buffet as well as a choice of coffee, juice, and eggs. I usually don’t like buffets, but this one was excellent.

The atmosphere of the room was bright and comfortable. The buffet, which was in a mirrored alcove, had plenty of selections without being overwhelming.

I really enjoyed the Emmenthal quiche and an egg dish that was baked with tomato sauce, cheese, and toasted bread.

Of course, there were delicious pastries.

There was fruit and a large selection of yogurts. The Bircher muesli was excellent.

Let’s not forget the bread — there was so much good bread! I was particularly in love with these miniature baguettes, so much so that I took a few extra for lunch the day we visited Versailles (shhh, don’t tell Hyatt!).

Café Jeanne was open for breakfast Monday to Friday from 7 to 10:30 a.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7 to 11 a.m.

In the evenings, Café Jeanne converts into a lounge and bar serving an extensive menu of drinks as well as tapas.

Park Terrace was a beautiful outdoor spot, open from 12:15 p.m. to midnight daily, weather permitting. It served the same menu as Café Jeanne.

Pur’

Pur’ is the Michelin-starred restaurant at Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme. It was open Tuesday through Saturday from 7:45 to 9:30 p.m. It was undergoing renovations during my stay, so I wasn’t able to grab a photo (though it was still open for dining).

Amenities

Spa and Fitness

The spa and fitness center were together 1 level below the lobby.

Le Spa at Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme was open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. I love visiting spas, but I only had a few days in Paris, so I skipped it this time. A hammam, sauna, and Jacuzzi were available, and you could book a massage, facial, or body treatment.

The gym was fairly small but had everything you would need to get a good workout. We were walking over 30,000 steps per day exploring Paris, so I didn’t need to try it out.

Service

The service at Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme was fantastic. We were warmly welcomed at reception and breakfast each morning, and every night, we had water and towels replaced during the turndown service.

Strangely, the housekeeping staff took our unopened juices, the balloon, and the notes that were left for us on the day we arrived. I never figured out if that was a mistake or intentional, but the juices were replaced promptly when I asked about them.

Final Thoughts

I have wanted to stay at Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme for years, so I was thrilled to finally make it happen. Since the cash cost of this hotel is so high, it’s a great place to use World of Hyatt points. While I was disappointed I wasn’t upgraded to a suite, my room was beautiful and very comfortable. The breakfast, which was included thanks to my Globalist status, was delicious, and the location offered convenient access to many of the top attractions in Paris.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and wouldn’t hesitate to book the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme again.
