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
Beutiful quality luxury hotel with polite friendly and attentive staff. Dinner in Le Cinq was a special occassion and the staff went the extra mile to ensure we had an enjoyable evening. Food and the flight of wines paired well. Expensive but bearing in mind hotel location and rating. worth it for special occasion but couldn't afford it on a regular basis.
This hotel well deserves its high reputation. Prestige and location at its best. Staff service is exceptional attention to detail and warm welcome to all guests with extreme thoughtfulness. Best experience ever!
Service was incredible; a true Palace. Everyone we met was courteous, kind, caring and helpful. The service at the Spa was impeccable, friendly and warm; food was amazing and personalized. Can't recommend this property enough.
Staying at the Hotel George V was a dream come true---and I never wanted to leave. The fresh flowers all over the hotel were magical. The service impeccable. The beauty of the decor transporting. Breakfast delivered bedside every morning was heavenly. And the deep soaking tub at the end of a busy Parisian day was almost as good as the pink champaign I enjoyed every night in the piano bar or one of the delectable restaurants. I was a guest for five nights and six days and the staff always greeted me by name. On a final note----the spa is exceptional. I will dream of returning to George V when I dream of Paris.
I can’t wait to find a hotel that provides a better experience than The George. If possible! Everything was perfect. The staff is amazing, and by the way, beautiful. Great service, fun bar, they account for every detail. And the 🌺 flowers. Well, you will just have to see for yourself.
Thank you Four Seasons!
