At some point in your business travels, you’re bound to find yourself working in the City of Love - Paris. While work is priority number one, there’s no reason not to love your travels: appreciating the finer side of Paris is as easy as allocating some down time, and considering where you stay. Take a page from Travel Leaders Group’s playbook and turn your business trip into a bleisure trip.
With that, few hotels are properly equipped and positioned to handle such a multi-faceted trip. One of the premier options that can is the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme. Formally earning the “Palace” designation—a prestige reserved for hotels superior to 5 stars—the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme is centered in tasteful opulence, and provides a superb home base for your time in Paris.
Accommodations for the Business Traveler
As a Palace, the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme has accommodations for every kind of traveler, including those in town for business. Located in the heart of Paris, the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme has everything at its doorstep and is located next to main subway and bus lines. The property is easily accessible from the Roissy Charles De Gaulle airport via the Roissy Bus. Private transfers can also be arranged through the hotel’s concierge. Besides the strategic location on the famous Rue de la Paix in the absolute heart of Paris, a business traveler can expect to enjoy:
• Complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel
• Same day laundry and dry-cleaning services
• Multilingual staff and translation services
• 24-hour Business Center, stocked with full office facilities and personalized services
• 505 square meters of meeting and event space – including an exquisite ballroom
Renowned architect Ed Tuttle took on the challenge of creating a chic contemporary setting which combines fluidity, refinement and warmth to create a totally unique atmosphere while keeping true to French style. The bedrooms and suites of Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme display a décor whose stylistic character combine abundance with tasteful sobriety. The wall lights, window fixtures and door-handles, are all unique and made by hand in bronze by sculptor Roseline Granet. The hotel equipped its three Presidential Suites with an “In-Suite Spa” dedicated to guests' personal wellbeing: a whirlpool bathtub, a steam shower, and its own massage table.
Looking and Feeling Your Best for Big Meetings
In addition to the previously listed reasons, the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme is also uniquely positioned for the business traveler thanks to the specialized services housed within the hotel. The fully renovated 80-square meter fitness center, open 24 hours, is located within the Spa and offers a complete range of equipment, including treadmills, cross trainers, exercise bikes, a cable motion system, and free weights; a personal trainer is also available upon request. The John Nollet Hair Salon is the brainchild and studio for world-renowned hair designer John Nollet. With an exclusive studio in Suite 101, Nollet offers a variety of treatments to satisfy the needs of any traveler hoping to look their sharpest. This pairs perfectly with the services of Nail Suite 601 by Kure Bazaar. Suite 601 provides soothing treatments and immaculately refined nails, so that your hands and feet look and feel pristine. A manicure may seem like a minor detail in a business meeting, but something as small as a handshake can make all the difference. Finally, for travelers who are staying in suites, massage services are offered in the comfort and privacy of your room.
While nearby restaurants abound thanks to the Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme’s central location, there’s enough fine dining within the hotel that you won’t need to venture out for food, unless you really want to. The restaurants are managed by executive Chef Jean-François Rouquette and pastry Chef Jimmy Mornet, with the crowning jewel being the Michelin-starred Pur’—a gastronomic ballet that evolves to reflect the seasons. For a feast centered on the full scope of Parisian flavors, a seat at Sens more than suffices. This venue offers regional products, freshly picked fruit and vegetables, as well as a delectable selection of cheeses and artisanal charcuterie certain to delight even the most refined palette. For lighter snacks and evening cocktails, the pair of La Cheminée and Le Bar provide both within cozily comfortable environments.
