On our last visit to the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris, we stepped into the lobby’s elevator and were joined by two members of the Rolling Stones. For the ten seconds or so it took to arrive at our floor, I tried and failed at accomplishing two tasks. The first was not to stare and the second was an attempt to communicate with my husband standing behind me via mental telepathy. “This is freaking amazing, can you believe it? Pinch one of them. I want to see if this is real!” I was yelling this in my mind without daring to turn around. When we stepped out of the elevator, I released the breath I had been holding and we burst into laughter. That was our George V Hotel “moment”.
George V is breathtaking for many reasons. When you walk through the front doors, your senses are assaulted by the beautiful floral arrangements in the lobby. Faultless service is delivered in a friendly and warm manner and the guestrooms are large and comfortable. It’s well located just steps from the Champs-Elysées and within easy travel distance to most of the big attractions. A Grande Dame of France but not as “Parisian” in atmosphere as Le Meurice, the George V will not disappoint.
