Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile (Concorde Lafayette)

Easily accessible from all of Paris’ major tourist and business districts, Concorde Lafayette is the only hotel with direct access to Palais des Congrès – the largest conference venue in Europe – and hosts approximately 120 conferences per year. The hotel offers 950 guestrooms, including 21 suites, and features a concierge club, two bars, two restaurants and 37,000 square feet of conference space. Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile will offer a full range of services and dining options to business and leisure travelers.

Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez (Hotel Martinez)

Situated in a prime location on the exclusive Boulevard de la Croisette, overlooking the Bay of Cannes and the Mediterranean Sea, Hotel Martinez benefits from Cannes’ status as France’s second most important city for business tourism and is one of the prime destinations for exhibitions and conventions. The hotel consists of 409 guestrooms, including 27 suites, and features a private beach and the only 2-star Michelin gastronomic restaurant in Cannes. With nearly 27,000 square feet of conference space, it is one of the city’s largest conference facilities. Grand Hyatt Cannes Hotel Martinez will provide sophisticated, upscale accommodations to business and leisure travelers.

Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Mediterranée (Palais de la Mediterranée Hotel and Casino)

The hotel boasts an excellent location in the city center and prominent beach frontage. Palais de la Mediterranée Hotel and Casino consists of 188 guestrooms, including 12 suites, many of which have individual terraces with unobstructed views of the sea. It also offers extensive conference and banqueting facilities totaling 20,000 square feet. Hyatt Regency Nice Palais de la Mediterranée will offer a full range of services and dining options to business and leisure travelers.

Hotel du Louvre

Centrally located in one of the most sought-after tourist and commercial districts in Paris, this highly visible historic building is well served by restaurants, high-end shops and art galleries. Following a two-to-three year renovation, the hotel is to become an Andaz.

Sounds like a good excuse for a week in France over the summer to me!

Comments

  1. The new Andaz should be a welcome addition.

    I haven’t stayed at the Concode Lafayette since the 1980’s and 1990’s but the location isn’t very good for tourism, and it’s a huge, impersonal hotel. Of course it will be fine for going to a convention, or needing to be near La Defense, or if the rates are good for a mattress run, but I doubt it will offer a great product. It’s just too big, and likely will end up more like a 3-star experience.

  2. Since the Vendome and the other Hyatt in Paris are Cat 6 (22k per night), I hope these new ones will be lower categories. Stayed at an Andaz in Amsterdam a few days ago and really loved the brand. Looking forward to more places with Andaz hotels. And I should mention the park Hyatt Vendome might be the greatest hotel in the world.

  3. This gives me a great alternative to using SPG points at Le Méridien in Nice this August. So much easier to get Hyatt points, and reviews make this property look to be much better than Le Méridien. I’ll cross my fingers for Cat 5 or lower 🙂
