Synopsis

Walking, riding, sailing or driving a limousine, all Parisian streets lead to the George V. As soon as it opened in 1928, the world's most famous celebrities have gathered at this English charmed palace: Sacha Guitry, Marlene Dietrich, Charlie Chaplin, Sophia Loren, Yves Montant and even the Rolling Stones. The George V became the incontrovertible stopover to those looking for luxury, calm and rest. After two years of a full renovation, the George V combines classical and ultra-modern comfort asked for by world travellers of the 21st century. Warm and bright colours, Carrare marble and golden taps, four-poster bed with a view of the Eiffel tower, a gorgeous spa with a perfumed atmosphere and more than four hundred staff waiting to satisfy any desire even the most eccentric of their clients may request. Here stands the success of the new palace. There is also the three-star restaurant which has become one of the most important places for Parisian gastronomy. Putting up at the George V is staying within the heart of the luxury.

From its legendary past to its new effervescence, the reader can follow the history of a place that for the last four years is said to be, by travel magazines, the world's best hotel. "The George V" is a journey spiced with anecdotes, new discovered talents and a view of highest standard of modern living.
