Imagine being whisked away to Paris on the TGV for a sneaky staycation in one of the capital’s most iconic palaces: the George V
. Located in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, on the legendary Avenue George V, a stone’s throw from the Champs Elysées and Avenue Montaigne, this gem of the Four Seasons Collection is an oasis of classic Parisian luxury. From the lavish lobby filled with tapisseries
and objets d’art
to the tastefully decorated rooms and communal areas, there isn’t one inch of space in the hotel that doesn’t invite guests to relax and indulge.We stayed in a Deluxe Room on the 5th floor with the most breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower, full marble bathroom and a bed so comfortable I now want the same at home. As a side note, I actually asked the hotel manager where the mattress was from, explaining I wanted to re-create the sensations at home, and she kindly explained that the mattresses were made in house and could be purchased from the George V boutique. Next time I travel to Paris, I can assure you I will go there and come home with a mattress on my back.
Despite being in the midst of a rather lively area, the rooms are a haven of peace, due to a super effective double glazing system, so you will get all the rest you need when you stay there. I am not a great sleeper and there I managed to get 9hrs of uninterrupted shuteye. I woke up fresh and happy… And ready to tackle my gargantuan signature American breakfast, while gazing at the Eiffel Tower out of the open window.
After only 24 hours in the hotel, I left feeling refreshed, energised and serene. A must-stay.
In case you are wondering what the dining options are like there, keep an eye out for a separate post about our dinner in the Marble Courtyard which was absolutely epic.
