Luxury Paris hotel in the 8th

Rooftop view from the Four Seasons George V in Paris’ 8th Arrondissement.

Four Seasons George V – Located in the heart of Paris’s Golden Triangle – the center of luxury, fashion and glamour. Aesthetic highlights include beautifully appointed rooms decorated in the Louis XVI style, a gorgeous marble courtyard, magnificent Jeff Leatham floral arrangements, three Michelin-starred restaurants, and the impressive architecture of its original 1928 Art Deco building. Highly recommended is a meal at Michelin 3-star restaurant Le Cinq, whose wine list, as thick as a phone book, is representative of the hotel’s impressive collection of 50,000+ bottles; oenophiles can arrange an exclusive wine tasting and tour of the cellar with the George V’s own award-winning sommelier.
