Paris is one of the greatest cities ever built. Mainly for the indulgence of material things and a feast for the eyes. The Four Seasons George V Hotel is a reflection of all that and more. Located in what is known as the Golden Triangle, it allows you the chance to rub elbows with the "Who's Who" of Europe. The residents in this area ranges from CEOs and State Leaders to Celebrities and Models. Which gives off the idea that this place is surrounded by wealth and luxury. You can find all the High End brand names here, as well in the Golden Triangle. Channel, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy and Hermès, to name a few. One of the things I couldn't help but notice (on a consistent basis) is that it houses all the luxury vehicles--the Aston Martin Vanquish, several Rolls-Royces, a Bugatti and Ferrari.
The service here was impeccable. Two doormen greeted me and swiftly retrieved my luggage. It would seem they have an endless multitude of staff. They often smile, always polite & welcoming and discreet. If it suddenly rains, there will be an umbrella waiting for you. An exciting tip for those who want to bring a pet--inform George V ahead of time because they do offer meals for your dog. Amazing, don't you agree?
The George V Four Seasons hotel will never disappoint. There are 244 Luxury accommodations here. Several room boast an incredible private terrace which overlook the city. Their superior/deluxe rooms are spacious and equipped with King-sized bed, Louis XV period-style desk and magnificent marbled bathroom. Some bathrooms are designed with patterns. The unique U-shaped building was purposely designed so every room will have a great view.
As a foodie, I couldn't stay away for the Le Cinq Restaurant. It's decorated in shades of gold and grey. You feel as though you're dinning in a private chateau. There are two wood-crafted mirrors with gold leafing that gives the view of the marble courtyard on the opposite side. At the helm is Chef Christian Le Squer creating magnificent dishes; it is to be expected as he is a three star Michelin-rated chef. The Menu changes with the season and offer different options which will always satisfy your palate, as it did mine. The "Epicurean Escape" menu is priced at €310.00 for a 9-course dinner; while the "Seasonal Escape" set is priced at €145.00 for a 4-course meal or €210.00 for a 6-course lunch.
