The Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme is the perfect summation of Parisian luxury. Located near the Place Vendôme square, the hotel is surrounded by the quality shopping of the 2nd arrondissement. Our favorites in the neighborhood, were the Jardins du Palais Royal, the Opera House and the boulangerie around the corner where we got fresh pain au chocolat every morning. Paired with a newspaper and a latte from the in-room Nespresso machine, it made for the perfect morning.

As typical with the Park Hyatt brand, everything about the Paris location was well conceived and executed. From the friendly check-in process to the concierge that could recommend the perfect night out to the subtle fragrance that filled the space and matched the mood; it's hard to get much better.
