Formerly known as the Hotel Concorde La Fayette, the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile is a skyscraper hotel located near the Porte Maillot in the 17th arrondissement of Paris, France. The hotel is one of the largest hotels in Paris, with 950 rooms, and is part of the Palais des Congrès, one of the city's convention centers. The tower is the third-tallest inside the city of Paris (which does not contain the La Défense business district). A spire of 53 metres stands on its roof.

The hotel's location was formerly a free space, hosting amusement parks during the summer. After World War II, temporary buildings were quickly built there in order to host some services from French ministries. In 1960, facing the international boom in tourist and congress activities, the Chambre de Commerce et d'Industrie and the Tourism Committee decided to build a convention center on the site. The selected architects were Henri Guibout, Serge Maloletenkov and Yves Betin. During that study, it was decided to build a large luxury hotel adjacent to the center. The hotel opened in 1974 as the Hotel Concorde La Fayette.

It was sold in 2013 by Starwood Capital to Constellation Hotel Holdings (a division of Qatar Holdings)[1] and became the Hyatt Regency Paris Etoile on April 23, 2013.[2]
