A key feature of the décor of Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris are the lavish displays of flowers everywhere, the work of floral designer Jeff Leatham. It is this attention to style that makes the George V stand out in a city where great hotels abound. Then there are the gloriously palatial rooms, extravagantly ornate chandeliers, the ballroom, the balconies and the brocade that make this hotel a truly sumptuous place to stay. Add to this the fact that you are a Christian Louboutin designer-shoe step away from the Champs-Elysees and you are in Parisian heaven. The Luxury Travel Bible likes the seventh floor Empire Suite an elegant silk and velvet homage to Napoleon and Josephine.
We also give a worthy mention to Hotel de Crillon.
