In the lobby, neutral shades of white stone vie with mahogany woodwork, and its clean lines are the perfect foil for modern sculptures. Like a modern art museum, this contemporary palace hotel fits in well with the jewellers in the neighbourhood. Popular with Parisians who meet in the vast lounges or on the indoor terrace for a gourmet breakfast, this flagship of the luxury Hyatt chain will charm fans of minimalist purity.
Among the 53 rooms and suites, those overlooking the Place Vendome are the most attractive, but all have the highest standard of comfort, with service to match luxury is, as they say, in the details. The Park Hyatt reassures its knowledgeable clientele with products by Blaise Mautin, the chic Parisian perfumer, and its spa, which carries the coveted Creme de la Mer.
The hotel's restaurant, Pur', is a star of French gastronomy and well worth a booking.
