Hotel Check IN Park Hyatt Paris Vendome

Hotel Check IN Park Hyatt Paris Vendome  |  Paris, France  |  Yes, yesterday I made it back to Paris, all the way from Moscow. I arrived late in the afternoon to check in at the stunning, sophisticated, exclusive and very well located Park Hyatt Paris Vendome Hotel. As its names implies, located steps away from Place Vendome, Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, Place de la Concorde and of course Opera. Below is the video of my room.

My Park Deluxe King is an oversized 30 to 40-sq.-metre room finished in exquisite detail with wood, bronze and silk, complementing a king bed with luxurious linens, generous work area with high-speed Internet access and limestone bath with soaking tub and stone-enclosed rain shower. Serene courtyard views from the three windows. Bathroom amenities such as plush robes and Blaise Mautin toiletries.

More will come later, since so far I have been only able to check in, go out for dinner, have a great drink at the Le Bar at the hotel, and go to sleep. Le Bar is an ideal place for international travelers to mingle with Parisians as they soak up the arty atmosphere and sip creative cocktails.
