Stayed 5 nights on BWB award, August 4-8, 2010. Stayed 2 nights at PH Place Vendôme just before that, and had previously stayed 7 nights in March at PH. We love the PH -- it's a very, very special hotel we would be happy to stay in every year. We were not sure we could like a hotel as well, but have to say the Madeleine shone in every category -- attentive and low-key staff who were also warm and friendly; not just cool and professional. Assistant GM went out of his way to offer suggestions and check that we were having a nice stay. On my husband's birthday, he sought us out at breakfast to wish him a happy birthday, and really made the day special.He also offered detailed maps (that he drew for us) and instructions for our follow-on driving trip to Brittany and Normandy. Manager also told us that this is the smallest Hyatt hotel. It really does have a boutique hotel feel. Beautiful lobby and bar. Breakfast was fabulous. Very similar to that at the PH -- not missing anything. We actually liked the location of the Madeleine better than the PH. My husband, who, as a retired military officer, has reciprocal privileges at foreign officers' clubs, was thrilled to take his birthday dinner at the Cercle National Des Armées, which is about a block away. We always try to plan so that our stays in Paris coincide with the weekly validity of the Passe Navigo Decouverte, so that we have unlimited bus & Metro while there. A bus stop was right in front of the hotel, and metro stops and buses to parts far and wide were just up at the corner. In all, there is nothing that could have been improved upon. As Platinums, we did have an upgraded room -- the basic room (which a staff member graciously showed us) can be quite small. One feature we thought was extra special was the double set of double-paned windows. We had a street-view room, and with the windows open, there was a lot of noise (street noise, not offensive noise), but with the windows closed, it was absolutely silent. A very nice feature. Price tends to run around 330 Euros per night.
