Without turning his back on the refinement of the hotel’s décor, so appreciated by its clientele, Ed Tuttle’s architectural choice has been to prioritize artworks, particularly those he has commissioned together with gallery owner Darthea Speyer. To emphasize the hotel’s special identity, the architect has based his subtle approach on a certain French classicism, reworking traditional materials and objects in a contemporary manner. The furniture that he himself has designed is a skillful blend of different French styles – from the reign of Louis XVI to the 1930s. The lines of columns without capitals and the beautifully finished moldings are perfect illustrations of the luxury hotel’s modern spirit. The architect has also focused on noble materials used in 19th-century Paris to construct Haussmannian buildings.
This Summer, the hotel unveils a new concept and a new name for its main restaurant: the Sens. Run by the Chef Jean-François Rouquette who has been awarded 1 Michelin Star by the famous Guide for the Pur’ (the other hotel gourmet destination), this new place is dedicated to “Bistronomie”. For this new tasty and casual spot, the Chef has picked up a selection of the finest ingredients from different suppliers throughout France to offer plates easy to share. During the sunny days, lunch is served on la Terrasse du Park Hyatt in partnership with Panerai watches. The renovation program continues with the hotel’s 153 rooms and suites, conceived as intimate, welcoming areas. Particular attention has been paid to the Japanese inspired bathrooms with their large tubs and showers. Roseline Granet’s sculptures decorate door handles and light fittings, adding a touch of poetry and distinction to the highly refined style of the rooms and suites. Still on the move the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme has become a past master at offering its guests a new palace experience.
