Each morning, I would wake up and run or walk around Paris, perhaps along the Seine, or around the Tuileries Garden from which I could see the Eiffel Tower. Running when I’m traveling brings me joy, even if I don’t run far or long. And, as much as I love vibrant, bustling cities, I also love a city’s morning quiet hours when it is first waking up.
— and then, each morning, I’d return to the hotel and meet Dave for a leisurely breakfast.
The Park Hyatt hotel breakfast is certainly one of the many high points of the overall Vendome experience. It is almost regal from the minute you enter the restaurant. There is a buffet and a menu, and as a Diamond Hyatt Gold Passport member, breakfast was complimentary (Yes, this is one of the reasons why I love having status at Hyatt hotels!).
We were always greeted formally but warmly, shown to our table and offered coffee and juice.
I’ve seen many hotel buffets, but this was nothing of the sort. Everything was fresh and of the highest quality, impeccably displayed. I never thought a buffet could feel like a work of art, but it did. It was exquisite.
We sampled many items from the buffet, but also ordered from the menu.
I ordered eggs benedict, which, of course, was perfectly prepared.
Here’s the bill – 50 Euros per person. 100 Euros for both. Thankfully, as mentioned above, breakfast is complimentary for Hyatt Diamond members (now Globalist).
I love this hobby!
