The Hotel George V is a bastion of elegance, opulence and romance located on a refined street just off the Champs-Élysées. Inside the majestic hotel are beautiful floral displays and tapestries, one of the world's best restaurants, one of its most impressive wine cellars, and exquisite accommodations, some with terraces and spectacular views of the Eiffel Tower. The below-ground spa is pristine, cream- and gold-colored and studded with marble pillars, crystal chandeliers and classical statues. It's a mini-replica of the vast Palace of Versailles complete with murals of eighteenth-century gardens surrounding the swimming pool. While the ambiance may be old-world, the facilities, treatments, service and cuisine are thoroughly modern.
