Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris Review
Updated: Apr 13
Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris is located in the Golden Triangle, near the Champs-Elysees. This 8th arrondissement location is world-renowned for its luxury shopping street such as Hermes, Cartier, Louis Vuitton, and Elie Saab are all nearby and their corporate headquarters.
Other notable points of interest nearby include the Pont de l'Alma, the Palais de Tokyo, and the Paris Museum of Modern Art. The Arc de Triomphe is an 11-minute walk from the hotel. It's a four-minute walk to the George V metro station (line 1) and a 12-minute walk to the Charles de Gaulle - Etoile transport hub (lines 1, 2, and 6, and the RER). Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports can both be reached in under 40 minutes, depending on traffic.
"It’s a landmark almost as famous as the Eiffel Tower."
You never know who might be in residence with you (celebrity sightings have been common during our stays). The sense of place, service, and luxury are why people book in. I firmly believe the extraordinary floral designs by Artistic Director Jeff Leatham, which compliment the 18th– and 19th-century French antiques and fine art throughout, are another strong draw.
If you are three people (two adults and one child), this is the lowest category of room that you can book here. Premier Rooms offer high ceilings and ample space as they range between 538 and 651 square feet. They’re decorated in the style of Louis XVI, with light, airy colour schemes and have terraces that are perfect for sipping wine.
You’ll dine in two Michelin-star restaurants while sipping on wine from the prized Le Cinq cellar that I have been inside of. The concierge team can arrange virtually anything and it’s a very family-friendly Paris hotel. But, there are things to know before checking in which I have outlined below.
Enjoy five-star relaxation at Le Spa at the Four Seasons George V. Facilities open bright and early at 7 a.m., so business travellers can fit in a spa session before embarking on a busy day. The spa facilities stay open all day until 10 p.m., so any guest can spend the day pampering themselves in the fitness centre or the Parisian mosaic hammam baths or soaking in the 86-degree vitality pool.
