This regal 1928 Art Deco charmer has long been a standard-setter in the hospitality universe—discreet but flawless service surfaces in a myriad forms, from the robes for your pint-size companions to the doormen, ready with an umbrella at a moment’s notice. But that’ll likely all be upstaged by the dazzling property itself, where public spaces, clad in Norwegian wood paneling and 17th-century objects d’art, are enchanting previews for what the 244 champagne-colored guest rooms (designed by Pierre Yves Rochon), luxurious twists on Parisian apartments, offer: even the smallest are a generous 400-square-feet, with period-style desks, king-size beds, deep soaking tubs, and luscious French fabrics. If you’re here on a shopping spree, spring for a suite with a walk-in closet. It’s only fitting that the hotel also houses Europe’s only three Michelin-starred restaurant, Le Cinq (expect avant-garde versions of classics, like a deconstructed onion soup), set in a 19th-century winter garden, though it’s La Galerie, flanked by Flemish fabrics—in the summer, it extends to the charming marble courtyard—the hotel’s piano lounge, that really buzzes.
In the Area
The 8th arrondissement is inarguably Paris’s chicest district, best known for the city’s most famous boulevard, the Champs-Élysées—one-third of the famed Golden Triangle, which includes the couture emporiums of Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V. Drop by one of the world’s most famous perfumeries, Guerlain, which stocks over 300 intoxicating scents. Also in the tony neighborhood: Parc Monceau, a former royal hunting ground turned public garden (a favorite painting spot for Monet) with its Chopin statue and tranquil green pockets. The Chaillot museums, a collection of four art institutions, including Palais de Tokyo and Guimet, are also nearby.
How to Get There
This was our 7th time having breakfast here and it never disappoints! It’s certainly a treat having breakfast in the four seasons hotel but what an experience. The traditional decor and restaurant setting is gorgeous. Highly recommend the egg white omelette, the hot chocolate and the croissants are to die for! The freshly squeezed orange juice and eggs are perfect too. Not cheap, but it’s well worth it.
Best as usual. Four Seasons is a guarantee of high quality and best service. They have come a long way improving, even more, the aprobaron of their service with State of the art technology, locations and the most diligent and prepared group of people.
Magical setting for a luxurious Christmas tea. A glass of Champagne followed by a lobster and then we moved to the main gallery where a table dressed with all the desserts you can imagine and the iconic buche of 2018 by chef Maxime Frederic. A true delight.
It is a really nice hotel it is real five star hotel location perfect easy to go anywhere you want and centre Paris. Room service perfect reception people very nice food clean and delicious 👌 price a bit expensive but I recommended it
As a 4S junky me and the wife spent a weekend in Paris at GV. The hotel boasted all that you would expect from 4S. Attentive staff, great character building and perfect location. The Spa and fitness centre were the best I have encountered at 4S anywhere in the world. However even though as a 4S regular around the globe and even accepting that we were in Paris the F&B prices were astronomical especially on the small items which is unnecessary. Watch out for bar snacks and breakfast.
