We have been to the George V twice and it was lovely and exceeded expectations. The common areas are very plush and elegant and the rooms are very well decorated and appointed in a sort of 19th century French style. If you only like contemporary style hotels don’t be put off, it is not too chintzy, it fits the building well and keeps on the right side of taste. Also they have magnificent floral arrangements. We have stayed in two different room categories I am not entirely sure which they were, but I think they were premier and superior, the premier room was huge with a sofa but the superior room was still reasonably sized but did not have as good a view. Both bathrooms were amazing, all marble, well-lit and the rooms had plenty of wardrobe space.
We have not had dinner in the hotel but have had drinks and the surroundings are lovely and staff attentive. My boyfriend almost fainted at the price of coffee we had when we arrived and sat in La Galerie but the surroundings are so amazing it is worth it. Also excellent nightcaps in the bar, or try the hot chocolate.
We did not use the spa but did use the gym and pool, which were very good, and the changing rooms in the gym area are very nice, with everything you might need. My boyfriend and I still argue over whether the Bristol or George V has a better pool/gym, but I think George V is better, it is very tranquil. I should know as the second time we were there I was ill on our day of check-out so spent the day resting in their special quiet/relaxation room complete with daybeds and trompe l’oeil walls which was lovely, especially before facing a flight home when I was not feeling great.
Location-wise the hotel is just off the Champs- Elysées, which is perhaps not the most romantic of locations but it is well connected on the metro, is by plenty of shops both cheap and top end and it is a nice walk from the hotel down to the Seine.
The frist time we went it was my boyfriend's birthday and they left an amazing patisserie cake and bottle of champagne in the room which was a lovely touch and really made the weekend.
The concierge staff are very good with dinner reservations, gallery tickets etc, and getting tickets to sold out exhibitions is what makes a difference in hotel class. That said the hotel is very expensive so you would expect nothing less, it feels very indulgent staying there and we love it and constantly compare other hotels to it.
First stay March 2009
