Step inside the George V Hotel (or Le Cinq, as insiders call it) and you'll be hard pressed not to be wowed by the opulence of it all.
This legendary luxury hotel sits proudly on Avenue George V near the legendary Champs Elysées. And, we might add, just steps away from the Louis Vuitton flagship store.
The wow factor begins in the lobby with 18th-century tapestries, spectacular flower arrangements, fine art, and marble-and-gold finishes.
The hotel restaurant, Le Cinq, has not one, but two Michelin stars. And, if you're in the mood for pampering, the spa is legendary.
If you're lucky enough to stay as a guest, even the moderate rooms will leave you speechless. Ask for a room with a balcony and you'll be rewarded with a private view that overlooks the Grands Boulevards and the Eiffel Tower.
It's also one of the top-rated hotels in Paris, with travelers rating it 9.2, or "Superb".
Expect luxury through and through in the 245 guest rooms and 59 suites (including 30 with a private terrace).
Behind the Art Deco facade you'll find each room individually decorated with a blend of modern amenities and antique touches.
Francois Dupré, who owned the hotel from its opening in 1928 until 1968, amassed a vast collection of antique furniture, Baroque statues, Louis XIV tapestries and paintings that still decorate the public areas and private rooms.
Like many five star hotels, the George V has an opulent health club with a swimming pool, sauna, steam bath and a full-service spa along with fitness instructors. If you're traveling with children, the staff goes out of their way to make your kids feel welcome with comfy bathrobes and slippers, and their own special children's menu.
