You know how acting legend Spencer Tracy is quoted as saying that when he died, he didn’t want to go to heaven, but to Claridge’s instead? Well, we might just have found our hotel equivalent of heaven: the Penthouse at the Four Seasons George V in Paris.

Designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon as a Parisian apartment, it’s one of the most memorable suites we have seen in a very long time. The space itself, the furniture, the materials, the artwork, the winter garden, the views, the terraces, we’re not ashamed to say we had a total hotel geek moment here.

Plus, for some reason, despite it being SPRING (hear that Mother Nature?) a good many of us are still shivering in our friggin timbers and would love a hot bath. So here's where to get it.

One of the bathroom's stand-out features is the gorgeous beige marble, with a shower so big you could do cartwheels inside, and of course, as centerpiece of it all, the infinity baignoire. You don't know that fancy word? Look it up! There is so much to see that your eyes dart all over the place to try and take it all in.

Both in the bathroom and the rest of the suite you'll find the work of Jeff Leatham, creator of the singularly spectacular flower art throughout the hotel’s public spaces. As if seeing the Penthouse was not enough, we unexpectedly met Jeff himself while we were up there, and chatted about the hotel and his work while standing on one of the terraces overlooking the city’s rooftops and the Eiffel Tower. Just your average afternoon, really.

The Penthouse at the Four Seasons George V runs at about €20,000 (roughly $26,000) a night.
