Last week, we gave you ideas for things you can do at Four Seasons George V if you can’t afford the pretty penny it costs to stay there, but still want a piece of that luxury pie. Now we’re going deeper inside to give you a peek at one of the coveted suites at the hotel – Suite 335.

Suite 335 is a Four Seasons Suite, the lowest rung on the suites ladder at George V. After it comes the Deluxe, Premier, Duplex, and Empire Suites, and all the way up to the Penthouse Suite. The Four Seasons Suites are not to be scoffed at, however, as runts of the litter, for they range in size from 650-750 sq ft and have the old-world elegance found throughout George V plus all of the mod-cons you need to carry on with your daily life.

Plenty of pics below!

As you enter Suite 335 you find a hallway (painted in a delicate bird and branch filigree design) directly to your right, leading you to the guest bathroom at the end. You first pass the minibar and Nespresso machine on one side (we were pleased to find real cream in that minibar and not the fake powder or liquid stuff) and the entrance to the rest of the suite on the other.

Unlike the opulent lobby and Le Galerie, for instance, the suite feels serene with a color palette of pale Wedgewood blue, creams and greys, with complementary gilded objets d’art and artwork, that all work together to create a very French pied-à-terre.

The large sitting area is equipped with a desk (painted white and gilded), bookcases, interactive flat-screen TV, a sofa and two chairs, with a view outside to the marble courtyard.

You enter the bedroom through painted wooden doors off of the sitting room to find a high king-size bed, a large walk-in closet, vanity table and second TV.

Through French doors, you pass the threshold into the large master bathroom done in cream marble with a grey marble countertop. Here you have the ubiquitous TV-in-mirror that’s found in luxury hotels now, a deep soaking tub and walk-in shower. Toiletries are the luxe Bulgari Green Tea brand. The water closet is cordoned off from the rest of the ensuite by a sliding door.

We felt terrifically at home in the suite even though our real lives don’t resemble the elegance of George V in any way — proving that, while this may not be the way you live your normal life, if you can swing a night or two, it sure is a nice place to visit.

Rates in August for a Superior Room are €1,190 and a Four Seasons Suite are €2,450 and yes— yikes!—but someone's doling out that kind of coin; this designated Palace hotel was not short on guests while we were there.

always wondered

Always wanted to see inside these rooms, but I'm actually shocked at how not special they look. Kind of like The Plaza pre-reno? That mirrored wall, those bedside lamps, the glass-topped desk. Not feeling it. For being a suite, too. Hopefully Peninsula Paris will light a fire under their butt.

mmm

I think (hope) that it might be one of those rooms that photographs badly? I can see the room looking a lot nicer IRL if you removed those shiny cushions. Bathroom seems unassailably meh though

This room is beautiful but...

for €2,450 a night I would expect it to be bigger and come with the services of a butler.
