Four Seasons Hôtel George V Paris Review

The George V is as poised and polished as the day it opened in 1928—the original plaster detailing and 17th-century tapestries have been restored, the bas-reliefs regilded, and the marble-floor mosaics rebuilt tile by tile. In pale blues and muted greens, the rooms are decked in sumptuous fabrics and Louis XVI trimmings, consistent with the franchise's ultraluxe standards. Stocked with Hermès toiletries, the bathrooms are marble-trimmed and have TVs hidden behind the mirrors. Book a table at the award-winning Le Cinq, one of Paris's gastronomic jewels. The low-lit spa and fitness center pampers you with 11 treatment rooms, walls covered in Toile de Jouy fabrics, and an indoor swimming pool. Even children get five-star treatment, with in-room video consoles and portable DVD players to distract them at dinnertime. Enjoy the quiet, clublike bar that serves pricey but well-prepared cocktails. Don't be surprised to be rubbing elbows with show business elite; the hotel remains a magnet for those in search of reliable creature comforts and don't blink an eye at the price tag.

    Four Seasons Hôtel George V Paris Review

    Although I stayed elsewhere in Paris, my wife and I had drinks in the bar for several hours until 2 am at Georges V. Our evening was great drinking and meeting new friends at the bar. Unfortunately the night was ruined by the rude behavior of the doorman (the person charged with arranging cabs etc). As we left the hotel we asked him to call us a cab since it was 2am and the streets were empty. He asked me for my room number and when I told him we had drinks in the bar but not staying in the hotel, he said he could only assist hotel guests. So my wife and I and our new friend we met at the bar went out to the street to try to catch a cab. No one was out though. So I went up to the same hotel employee to ask again and he refused again stating he could only help hotel guests. I told him again I was at the bar for a couple hours and he asked me to see my receipt. At this point I was furious. I told him I threw it away but said "let's go in and talk to the bartenders.". So he reluctantly came with me and I told the bartenders what was going on. Immediately one of them came out with me to help me but the rude employee also called me a cab while I was talking to the bartenders. Bottomline is I was in France for a week with my wife and this incident was the first incident of rudeness I experienced in Paris or the countryside. Definitely not the kind of service I have come to expect from the Four Seasons Hotels whether dining, drinking or staying in their hotel. Pretty pathetic though.

    Bonjour, bonjour, bonjour!

    Our three night stay at the beautiful Georges V did not disappoint. The room was beautiful, in tones of cream and gold, as was the bathroom.

    Especially lovely was an unforgettably delicious and romantic meal at Cinq, the hotel's acclaimed restaurant. It was truly a night to remember...
