A five star summer Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme

The most contemporary of the palaces – Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, which is celebrating its twentieth anniversary – already has all the makings of a grand Parisian classic. It deploys enlightened and relaxed luxury on all floors, summed up by its general manager Gorka Bergareche: “You do not come to Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme to be seen, you come to feel expected and welcomed, to enjoy our warmth and understated luxury”.

A hidden jem of elegance nestled on Rue de la Paix, in the former fashion house of the first fashion star, Jeanne Paquin, the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme is the most recent of the Parisian palaces. Ideally located, just steps from the jewelers of Place Vendôme and a stone’s throw from the Opera and department stores, the Louvre and the Rue Saint- Honoré, it is immersed in the tumult of Parisian life, reassuring like a sheltered port where the urban explorer can rest in total voluptuousness. Here, luxury elevates, it mixes with works of art, paintings, sculptures, drawings, collages, contemporary photos, from the palace’s collection (consisting of 80% of practicing artists), including bronzes by Roselyne Granet. Present on all floors, in common areas as in the 111 rooms and 45 suites – including the Signature suites equipped with a private spa and large balconies opening onto Paris in majesty – it reflects the desire of its decorator Ed Tuttle to create an exclusive and familiar place, as if inhabited. The famous interior architect, who presided over all the hotel’s renovations until his death in 2020, had free rein to reinterpret the Haussmann architectural elements of the building, the Parisian stone, the canopies, the colonnades, the mirrors, the gilding, modernized in continuity, inscribing his language even in custom furniture. It must be said that the Park Hyatt hotel chain has woven an intimate link with decoration, its founder Jay Pritzker having also created the prestigious Pritzker architecture prize in 1979. The attention to detail is therefore absolute, down to the olfactory imprint created by the nose Blaise Mautin, which permeates the atmosphere with scents of powdered patchouli, Russian leather and Florida orange.

Here, everything starts and comes back to Café Jeanne, the pulsating heart of the hotel, to be experienced from the first tartine to the last drink, thanks to its three distinct spaces: the restaurant room topped with a large canopy, the cozy lounges arranged around a beautiful stone fireplace, and the terrace which in these beautiful days unfolds its green outfits. This friendly luxury, without ostentation, follows the guests and external clientele to the starred table of Pur’ (rated 17.5/20 by Gault & Millau), where Chef Jean-François Rouquette runs an open kitchen, delivering dishes that sublimate seasonal products with audacity and sincerity. Final touch, the delicate desserts of Pastry Chef Naraé Kim come in time to poeticize the plate. To perfect his stay, the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme invites its clients, residents or passing by, to discover the Spa, an enclave of well-being with its whirlpool basin paved with gold mosaics, its walls dressed in light stone, mahogany, green onyx and black granite from Zimbabwe. In four treatment cabins, including a double, the teams offer a collection of beauty rituals for the face, body, hands, with high-end La Mer products. One will not miss, to finish, to lose one’s head for a hairstyle or a cut of John Nollet, who installed his Hair Room Service furnished with Vuitton trunks, in suite 101.
