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
A special treat for a special occasion and a dream-come-true. We had a sumptuous suite on the 6th floor - it was huge by European standards, and exquisitely appointed. After a long day of sight-seeing, we would come back to our beautiful room and sit on the balcony, overlooking the rooftops of Paris, watching the sunset and sipping wine. Our special dinner at 'Le Cinq' was a fabulous parade of impossibly delicious foods and wines. This hotel was the epitome of luxury and extraordinary service. What a memory to savor and enjoy forever!
Everything about the Four Seasons Hotel George V was perfect--convenient location, large & tastefully decorated rooms, exceptional restaurants, beautiful flowers, friendly yet professional service, great location, lovely outdoor courtyard. I didn't want to leave!
I stayed at Four Seasons George V about 3 years ago so it has taken me awhile to get to this review. It was for a very special occasion stay and the staff did everything to ensure that we felt special. I cannot thank the entire staff enough to make it a most memorable stay. It was an expensive property, but it was also one of the very very few hotels that I felt was worth every single penny. Thanks again for your impeccable service and rooms, with extreme attention to details. I know I will return again, and I highly recommend anyone to choose George V over any other Palace 5* hotels in Paris area.
I stayed hear for a week and thought that the price for a room was really so I was expecting a hole and I was right the staff only spoke French and were very arrogant I asked for their best meal they serve snails 🐌 which at first was fine as I had them before and really enjoyed. I was very happy until they started MOVING ACROSS THE PLATE AND EATING THE LETTUCE THE CAME WITH IT. Not to mention the fact the bed springs were all broke and the toilet wasn’t wasn’t flushing UTTERLY TERRIBLE!!!!
Quite possibly finest hotel in the world. Stayed there with wife and two teenage children. Impeccable service. Concierge can arrange literally anything. An oasis in the middle of busy Paris just off Chammps Elysee.
