Discover Fine French Hospitality with the Four Seasons Hotel George VMonday 11 September 2017
The Four Seasons Hotel George V Paris is located just a stone’s throw from the famous Champs-Elysées. Overflowing with elegance and charm, the deluxe hotel redefines the meaning of the luxury in the City of Light. Under the direction of American owner Joel Hillman, the Hotel was built in 1928 by French architects Lefranc and Wybo. Destined for a sophisticated clientele, the well-regarded eight-storey hotel is bound to give one of the most memorable hospitality experiences you will ever encounter.
The Parisian hotel offers an incredible total of 244 luxurious guest rooms and suites, including 3 presidential, 2 royal and 1 Penthouse. Each accommodation has its own sparkle and features and is quite representative of the original architectural mindset of the hotel. The spaces are flooded with natural lighting, contemporary art and well-appointed materials.
The luxurious hotel has a tremendous floral presence courtesy of artistic director, Jeff Leatham, whose main aim is to embellish and refresh on a daily basis the essence of the hotel by incorporating aesthetic and omnipresent arrangements, as he explains, “My goal is to oﬀer guests the opportunity to have a unique and unforgettable experience every time they come to Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris”.

In regards to dining experiences, the hotel offers a curated dining and Michelin-starred dining venue, Le Cinq restaurant. Under the careful supervision of director and one of the world’s best sommeliers, Eric Beaumard and proficient chef, Christian Le Squer, the restaurant presents an exquisite dining room and a classic French menu that adapts newer and lighter cooking styles with fresh regional ingredients and also balances delicate flavours. To the chef, cooking is about offering an unforgettable moment and sensation to guests. Squer also discloses that “The taste of a dish actually comes to me before I find the ingredients for it. It’s an intuitive process. It just hits you, a bit like love at first sight”. The interiors recur to a classical Franco-Anglican style featuring astonishing furniture pieces like Louis XIV cabinets and gold-plated medallion chairs.
The Hotel also has a Pop-up Spa by Jeff Leatham, situated on the 4th floor of the hotel, with an extremely welcoming and contemporary quintessence. The spa is bathed with natural lighting and a Parisian ambience. The spa has four glamorous treatment rooms, a fitness room geared with the latest equipment, as well as a nail and hair salon. One of the signature treatments of the spa is a relaxing orange blossom body scrub, which is followed by a relaxing massage with warm shea butter. The Swimming pool, the sauna and the hammam will suffer renovations during 2018 in order to embrace and welcome guests with arms wide open.
Out of curiosity, the Beatles once composed one of their most brilliant songs, “I feel fine” at the hotel and it was also in that moment that the famed pillow fight photo by Henry Benson took place. Hollywood and haute couture icon, Elizabeth Taylor stayed in the Penthouse suite during the honeymoon with her second husband, Conrad Hilton.
