Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris

A City of Light institution that still shines
From the moment you walk through the golden revolving door into Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, you are transported to the early 1900s, a time when the city sparkled in all of its rich-textured and fine-tapestried grandeur. Of course, it manages to transport you to this elegant era while also offering reminders of the current times such as grand floral arrangements and a luxurious, modern spa.

Over the last seven decades, the George V has established itself as much more than a hotel, though. The palace hotel has become an institution in Paris, not only for its architecture and style, but also for its role in setting the bar for the hospitality industry in the City of Light.

Renowned for its exquisite restaurants, La Galerie, L'Orangerie and Le Cinq, the swank Le Bar and unmatched concierge services, Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris leaves no stone unturned. Stay at this luxury hotel and there will be no question that you’ve found one of the most extravagant and inviting places in the city.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • With only a few palace hotels in Paris, George V was originally designed in the 1920s by French architects LeFranc and Wybo. With the help of American architect Joel Hillman, the hotel opened in 1928 and, 70 years later, was added to the Four Seasons hotel collection.
  • The George V will have the flowers and décor to complement the season. In the spring and summer, for example, immense arrangements of hydrangeas fill the lobby and marble courtyard. In the winter, the Christmas decorations are breathtaking, with hundreds of twinkling lights and trees filling the Galerie.
  • Le Bar offers meals throughout the day, and serves as the perfect place to enjoy breakfast amidst the plush sofas and warmth of the wooden lounge. For lunch, Le Bar provides a menu filled with such items as the famous lobster club sandwich.
  • Another dining option is the property’s acclaimed restaurant, Le Cinq. Chef Christian Le Squer gives you the option of ordering off the menu — you can select seasonal dishes such as sautéed wild mushrooms or fresh sea bass — or following a set menu, with or without wine pairings.
  • The entire George V property sits above a wine cave where about 50,000 bottles are stocked in a perfectly controlled atmosphere.
