{ Dallas Shaw x Park Hyatt Paris Vendome }

April 20, 2016

My job in the fashion & lifestyle industry has taken me to places I’ve ever imagined. When I designed my company I thought most work would be done from the desk in my tiny office, instead I’ve been to places like Vienna, Canada, London, Oxford- and now, Paris.
Our first stop? Checking in at Park Hyatt Paris- Vendome.
The hotel was beautiful of course. Weary from the long flight, we were welcomed with a gift in room by the kind staff. Imagine my awe when the windows in the room opened (windows in hotels OPEN?!) to a courtyard of symmetrical, ivy filled windows. How. Very. Parisian.
Every morning I just stood there in the windows for a few minutes to take it in before we hit the streets. I’m am really looking fwd to bringing these window-memories into an illustration soon.
The location of this hotel was everything. Place Vendôme is a square in the 1st arrondissement of Paris, France, located near the Tuileries Gardens and it is the starting point of the Rue de la Paix. Being in the middle of it all (near the louvre, the opera house and of course the shopping) is so helpful when traveling oversees, and this hotel was a two minute walk to everything.
Best part of the room? The bathroom, filled with brass fixtures, heated floors, double closets and all of the luxury travel amenities you might need (loofahs to nail kits) was a highlight. A bubble bath in Paris? – yes please. Not to mention the room had automatic blinds and velvet pillows on the worlds comfiest bed.
The hotel staff was kind and helpful. We saw them often at the amazing breakfast
bar in the morning, and again later at night when we hit the outside garden cocktail bar.
Looking fwd to sharing more photos of our trip here with you in the next few days.
