Video Tour of Our Park Deluxe Room at the Park Hyatt, Paris

Daraius:  On Monday, we got a call from the front desk asking when we’d be moving rooms from the Park Suite to the Park Deluxe room.

I had booked the 1st two nights using the 2 free nights from the Chase Hyatt credit card in a Suite as a Hyatt Diamond member, but had booked the next 5 days using Hyatt points which I transferred from Chase Ultimate Rewards.  I could have paid 33,000 points a night (instead of 22,000 points) per night to book a Park Suite, but I decided to take a chance that the hotel would let us stay in the same room.

Unfortunately, the hotel was full so we couldn’t stay in the suite.  We went to the front desk after returning from sightseeing and got the key to the new room.  The front desk agent was extremely apologetic for the inconvenience, and told us that our new room was a Park Deluxe King which was one level above the Park Queen room which we had booked using points.

She also offered to send a bellhop to help us move, which we declined, since our new room was on the same floor and it was easier for us to move our stuff ourselves.

Emily:  The bedroom area of the Park Deluxe room was only just a bit smaller than the bedroom area of the Park Suite.

We got another box of 4 yummy chocolates!

The bed was the same size as the one in the Park Suite, a king. It also had the same luxurious bedding.

However, the bathroom was much smaller than the bathroom in the suite.  We had to share one small sink (instead of 3!) so we’d take turns getting ready in the morning.

The Bathroom

The bathroom was well lit and bright, but the amenity bottles were smaller (50 ml) than those in the suite (80 ml).

Small Sink

There was one bathtub…

…and one shower area.

Emily:  I prefer closed-in showers because I felt a cold draft in this one (only one side is enclosed).

However, there was a vanity with a mirror in the shower, so it was convenient for Daraius to shave in the mornings.

Daraius:  Convenient, yes.  But I wasn’t given a choice where to shave!

There was a storage rack opposite the sink.

And there were bathrobes and towel warmers.

The layout of the main room was similar to the suite, with two chairs and a table.

There was also a Nespresso machine and a kettle for tea.

The room also had a desk and flat screen TV.

Daraius: The room was huge by Paris standards and the next 5 days flew by!

Emily:  It was really nice to stay in such a comfortable room using points.

  1. Haha, sometimes I have used Microsoft word and I don’t like how spellcheck gives me a hard time. When you wrote the word “convenient” up there it changed the word to continent for you! I have a hard time with that word too!!

  2. @Jose – Duh. I made the change. Thanks for letting me know!

  3. Pretty nice hotel but judging from the size and the look of the room, it is definitely not a good value proposition if you had to pay cash!!

  4. @Peter S - 300 to 400 square feet is a huge room in Paris, but not worth the room rate unless you have a lot of $$.

  5. I have read all of your Paris honeymoon trip reports so far. Looking forward to the rest of the installment. It is so nice to see a trip report from a couple’s perspective instead of the usual solo guy traveler like the other blogs that I frequent. It adds a different perspective to get both the man and woman’s point of view. Paris is a great city for couples. It is very romantic. You both make a lovely pair.

  6. @Jonathan - Thanks for your kind words and for reading!

  7. The Hotel looks lovely I so appreciate the trip report as we are heading there in November.
    Would it be a good use of 22,000 sapphire points for this Hyatt if you dont get a suite? We already have 4 nights at Radisson courtesy of the Big Night giveaways, & need one more hotel.
    Any possibility you know which Radisson is more convenient to sightseeing & nicer, Radisson Paris Opera or Radisson Blu Champs Elyse?

  21. We just returned to Paris for our last night here after visiting Normandy. Used points 22,000 for a free award night again at Hyatt Venodome. We are in the EXECUTIVE SUITE – nightly rate is $1’650!!! Amazing. I am officially switching from Hilton to Hyatt as my go to place to stay, earn and burn – especially with HHonors devaluation.
