Four Seasons George V Paris: A wonderland of one-of-a-kind-experiences
Crossing the threshold of certain hotels is like entering into a world of fairy tales and one-of –a-kind experiences. The Four Season George V in Paris, situated at the heart of the Paris Golden Triangle designer shopping district, is, without a doubt, telltale proof.
Originally opened in 1928 in honor of George V, this historic art deco hotel is all about traditional comfort à la française with its Classical French furnishings (Louis XVI, Napoleon I). But if there is one thing that stands out above all the rest it is the breathtaking floral display (9,000 flowers are delivered from the Netherlands weekly) which has become a fundamental part of the Four Seasons Hotel setting and not just a mere backdrop.
Behind this high end floral design we find Jeff Leatham, the hotel’s acclaimed Artistic Director who has been creating a sensation with his floral designs for over 16 years. Jeff was Awarded the prestigious “Knighthood” / “Chevalier de L’Order des Arts et Letters” in 2014, the French Government´s Highest Honor for Artists whom have made a significant contribution to French culture. Oprah Winfrey, Kylie Minogue or Tina Turner are just a few of his clients, and his famous Christmas displays are already this American´s legacy in the great City of Light.
But if there is something The Hotel George V prides itself on, it is that of providing its guests with the most memorable experiences possible:
We will begin with dining pleasures and the 3-Michelin star restaurant Le Cinq, an exquisite dining room boasting beautiful views of the courtyard. Christian Le Squer, named chef of the year by his peers in 2016 draws up a signature menu based on classic French culinary techniques.
Do you want to learn how to shake the famous E«V»A, a very special cocktail created for actress Eva Longoria or even better drink it ? Guests of Four Seasons Hotel George V have the chance to take a cocktail course with the head barman, Grégory Hazac. The one-hour course begins with a demonstration, followed by a hands-on shaker session and tasting.
