A stone’s throw from the Champs-Élysées, Four Seasons Hotel George V is one of the city’s grande dame hotels.

Four Seasons Hotel George V is an Art Deco masterpiece that was built in 1928. Its sensational lobby sets the tone with acres of marble, original tapestries, antique mirrors, a sensational chandelier and incredible floral arrangements from Jeff Leatham. The style is classic, yet contemporary, keeping you firmly in the 21st century, but with touches of French history throughout. The hotel is a gourmand’s dream: Its three restaurants — Le Cinq, Le George and L’Orangerie — together hold five Michelin stars, making it the hotel in Europe with the most Michelin stars. Le Spa has a gorgeous pool and a wide array of treatments, and for fitness, it has a gym and offers running tours of the city.
Top suite: Penthouse
The crowning glory is the Penthouse, which overlooks the city from its eight-floor perch. It has gorgeous, 360-degree views from the conservatory, terrace and the bedroom’s balcony; you can enjoy these private views of the Eiffel Tower from a daybed or during a private dinner. The bathroom is particularly impressive: It is full marble and has an infinity-edge tub with chromotherapy, making the one-bedroom suite the ultimate romantic getaway.
