Tell the truth. Wouldn’t you love to take a stroll through a 5 star hotel like the George V?  Now is your chance. Watch the Four Seasons Video Tour below.

 


By the way, if you enjoyed this video, you will love the coffee table book, “A Parisian Legend”, by the Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, which describes both the history of the George V and the spectacular 1999 renovation.

The inside cover of the book has photos and lists of famous guests as diverse as General Patton, Audrey Hepburn, Bob Dylan, Marlene Dietrich, Tina Turner, John Wayne, Ray Charles, Jack Nicolson, The Rolling Stones, Sydney Poitier, the Beatles, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Clint Eastwood, Tom Cruise, Celine Dion and Madonna,  to name but a few. 

Dignitaries, as well as numerous US and foreign heads of state, have stayed at the George V. Now that gives you an idea of just how special a
place this hotel is.
 
Included in the book  are some wonderful tidbits about those who resided at the George V for extended periods of time,  from oil tycoon Jean-Paul Getty to
Sophia Loren.


NOTE


One story that I found particularly interesting was from many years ago, when the Maharahah of Kapurthala, traveling from his Indian kingdom, had what some might call whimsical requests – all of which were accommodated by the George V. 


He wanted the corridors leading to his suite decorated with fresh carnations every day and insisted that his dogs only drink Evian water. The Maharajah claimed to be the reincarnation of Louis XIV and insisted on his courtiers wearing wigs and drinking red wine. Ah, the stories these walls could tell!
