Four Seasons George V has joined in not only with an overall renovation of its rooms, but also with the addition of a swank Penthouse to its list of expensive suites. Situated on the 8th floor of the hotel, Pierre-Yves Rochon was brought in to imagine what the Penthouse would look like if he were a wealthy businessman that had acquired the space.
Walls decorated with sycamore, majilite, and silk, travertine flooring, lavish furniture, Baccarat crystal glassware, and such every-day amenities as a winter garden all aim to make the 160 sq m (1,630 sq ft) suite feel like a place where “time would not exist anymore”. Sweeping views over Les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower can be had from no less than six terraces or the intimate upper balcony.
A pretty spectacular marble bathroom features an infinity bath that reminds us of the one in the $30,000-a-night Ty Warner Penthouse at the Four Seasons New York. First images of the George V Penthouse show beautiful flowers throughout, which is no surprise given the magical displays in the lobby the hotel is justifiably famous for, courtesy of master florist Jeff Leatham (we think the price of a drink at the bar can be worth it for the chance to look at the public spaces alone).
While the Penthouse cannot be reserved online, and prices are not disclosed, an entry-level Superior Room usually starts around €1,000 ($1,230), so it wouldn’t surprise us if a night in this Parisian pied-à-terre will easily run into the five figures.
