With its Art Deco facade situated at 31 Avenue George-V (8th arrondissement), just a stone’s throw from the Champs-Élysées, the Four Seasons Hôtel George V offers 244 rooms, including 59 suites and 30 rooms with a balcony or terrace offering stunning views of the city. The hotel, founded in 1928 by a rich American, is today the property of Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, who has confided the running of it to the Four Seasons chain.
The Palace boasts classical interior design of the 17th to 19th centuries conceived by Pierre-Yves Rochon, who has managed to perfectly marry classical French style with state-of-the-art technology. The Four Seasons Hotel George V is famous for ‘Le Cinq’ (seats 65), its restaurant with three stars in the Michelin Guide in 2016, thanks to chef Christian Le Squer. L’Orangerie (20 covers) and Le George (64 covers), the hotel’s two signature gastronomic restaurants each bearing a Michelin star, make this Palace the first in Europe to have three Michelin-starred restaurants!
The classic French decoration of the hotel is enhanced by floral compositions signed Jeff Leatham. Some 12,000 flowers are delivered from the Netherlands each week to illustrate a new theme.
A trendy palace
The Palace also boasts a range of exclusive services, such as placing gifts in children’s bedrooms, suggesting activities and even offering a Rolls Royce Phantom personalized by Hermès, a world exclusive! On the 8th floor, the Penthouse apartment, one of the most expensive in the world, offers a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower from its private terraces.
An ambitious renovation and decoration project launched in 2014 has involved the renovation of the bedrooms and spa, as well as the creation of two orangeries, new salons and a new interior courtyard. The swimming pool, sauna and hammam were also renovated and reopened in 2018.
