Park Hyatt is one of the top two or three luxury properties in Paris. The entire hotel oozes upscale with its exquisite décor and design, not to mention the ample security personnel subtly stationed throughout. Of course, ridiculously high thread count bedding, limestone baths with floor heating, soaking tubs/rain showers, Bang & Olufsen televisions, and unbelievably attentive service do not come cheap. The nightly tariff averages 600 Euros per night, that's nearly $1,000 for an entry-level room with a Queen-size bed!
When considering the mediocrity of Park Hyatt's gym (especially at these sky high prices), athletic-minded travelers may wish to save a few bucks and stay at one of our other recommended properties. The lower-level fitness center and spa is delightfully designed and decorated, but a little light on equipment. All cardio machines are Life Fitness' top-of-the-line, new models. However, only one elliptical is in the house and no recumbent bike is stocked. The strength options are limited to a 2-25 pound dumbbell set and one cable/pulley weight station. As we said, good but not great. Personal trainers and massage/salon services can be arranged, but be prepared to pay an arm and a leg to have your arms and legs worked, around 150Euro for a 60-minute massage and 85Euro for 30 minutes of personal training.
Joggers should consider an outdoor jaunt through the Vendome and to paths along both sides of the River Seine.
