Steps from the Champs-Elysées, with private terraces that command all Paris; 18th-century tapestries, lovingly restored; and a spirit that lives on in thoroughly reborn, highly advanced spaces, Four Seasons George V Paris redefines luxury service in the City of Light.

The Hotel George V is an eight story hotel built by Joel Hillman at a cost of $31 million and opened in 1928. Its next owner was François Dupré who also owned the Plaza Athénée at 25 avenue Montaigne in Paris and the Hotel Ritz in Montreal. It has 245 guest rooms and is the winner of several awards from Condé Nast Traveler. As of 2008 it is managed by Four Seasons Hotels and is owned by Kingdom Holding Company, the investment company controlled by HRH Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz Al-Saud. The Le Cinq restaurant has two Michelin stars. The general manager and regional vice president is Christopher Norton.
