Paris – Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris

Paris - Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris

A grand palace hotel built in 1928 close to the Champs-Elysées, the George V has gone from strength to strength under the management of Four Seasons. There are 244 rooms (more than a quarter of which are suites), and many have private terraces. Public areas are impressive, with high ceilings, serious antiques, tapestries and lavish floral displays by designer Jeff Leatham. The two-Michelin-starred restaurant Le Cinq continues to win plaudits for its classic French cuisine; La Galerie and Le Bar are popular for cocktails. There’s a small pool and spa in the basement.

X-factor The impressively efficient team of concierges can arrange anything you want; and they have been known to find and return lost items weeks after a guest has left.
