The 168 guest rooms and suites are infused with exquisite, contemporary charm. They even feature precious materials like mahogany, 'Pierre de Paris' stone, silk, bronze, oak and a highly sophisticated blend of art and design that displays not a hint of the baroque. The resulting setting is welcoming, and all the services and amenities you ever dreamed of are available without the place being made to feel cluttered. Stylish shades of white combine with beige and chestnut brown, and the whole room is illuminated by large windows overlooking either the inner courtyard, Rue des Capucines or Rue de la Paix, the streets that form the hotel's magnificent immediate surroundings. Needless to say, five-star service does not come cheap, and the price for a night spent in one of the 'Park Rooms', the lowest category at the Park Hyatt, will set you back £700. Still, that is a trifling sum when set against the £9,600 guests have to shell out for a night in the imperial suite. Even the most basic of rooms here displays details that will leave you in no doubt about the difference between this palace and more affordable hotels. Apart from the generous dimensions of the rooms, the enormous desk, the multijet shower and the Japanese style bath found in all the rooms, the underfloor heating in the bathrooms is rare in other establishments and adds a real touch of class. These little details show a determination to leave nothing to chance and to do everything to pamper guests by means of attentive, personalised service. Every morning you can have newspapers from all over the world delivered on request, and in the evening, you can peacefully watch a DVD, listen to music, browse the internet or order something to eat. Basically, you can do everything you can do in your own home, but in five-star surroundings.
If all that is not enough, the 36 suites are the stuff of dreams, offering an even larger space in which to enjoy all the comfort and well-being provided. They range in size from the 48m² Park King suite to the 110m² Diplomatique suite, which is adorned with two fireplaces and chandeliers. Finally, to bring a fitting end to the description of a hotel chosen by VIP's including Claudia Schiffer and Sting when they visit Paris, there are three presidential suites, which are also known as 'In-Suite Spas'. It doesn't take long to see where this name comes from. Inside, the suites offer all the same services as those found in the well-being centre in the basement of the hotel. They are basically apartments boasting the kind of luxury that most of us have to be content dreaming of... In addition to the kitchen, lounge and bedroom, the bathrooms of the presidential suites are provided with a miniature well-being centre including the standard hydromassage bathtub, a shower that also operates as a hammam, and a massage bed. You will be astounded.
