Only a few blocks from the Champs Elysees, this boutique, 86-room Hyatt enjoys a central location and is a welcome departure from the hotelier's more typical grandiose, business-like properties.
Madeleine's vibe is soft, simple and elegant. Modern décor with natural tones and light wood furnishings are found throughout the property, including the guest quarters. Most rooms come with large windows that open to the romantic Paris air and Hyatt's quiet courtyard. The magnificent bathrooms sparkle with shiny faucets and knobs, deep-soaking tubs and impressive marble floors/walls. A separate work area with high-speed internet ($fee) is designed into the rooms' floorplan. And, room service can be called upon 24 hours.
While the below-ground gym does not have windows (and thus no natural light), plenty of high end equipment brightens the room (along with adequate ceiling lighting and hardwood flooring). New Technogym cardio machines share space with a useful dumbbell set. Strength buffs wanting more weight options should consider a nearby off-site health club (but, entry will be pricey).
