Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme
Of all Paris’s luxury hotels, this one might be the most understated: Even the entrance is unassuming, compared to the rest of the city’s grand lobbies. Fortunately, it’s also a place where things only improve the further in you go. A recent update by American designer Ed Tuttle means dark wood paneling and gilded accent moldings bridge the old and the new, and the bathroom is stocked with top-shelf beauty products along with the hotel’s bespoke scent, by respected nose Christophe Laudamiel. Trust us: It’s the kind of stuff you’ll want to sneak into your suitcase and spend years trying to find at home. Don’t forget to factor in a dinner at the Michelin-starred PUR, by Chef Jean-François Rouquette—you can book a table when you book the room.
