    Location 6.9 /10

    The George Washington shares its name with the street in which it is located, in the 8th arrondissement. Heading southwards, it leads to the Champs Elysées, and the Arc de Triomphe is just a few hundred metres away. It is also perfectly positioned for walking in the district around Opéra Garnier and the Eglise de la Madeleine church. The closest metro station, George V, is served by line 1, the most central route. In a few minutes, therefore, you can get directly to the very modern La Défense district or, by heading in the opposite direction, to Place de la Concorde, the Jardin des Tuileries gardens and the Louvre Museum, all of which are located on the same east-west axis that runs along the Champs Elysées and continues down Rue de Rivoli. If you decide to travel to either of the two airports using public transport, allow at least an hour, and be prepared to make at least one change. The same journey takes around forty minutes by taxi.

    Accommodation 7.20 /10

    The George Washington only has 17 rooms, which are spread over 6 floors. They are still undergoing renovations, and so is the lobby. Guests have the choice between the classic, superior and junior suite categories. Work on some of the rooms has already been completed, and they now display the distinctive tastes of the owner, who has adorned the big beds with eccentric, plush blankets for warmth, and has hung exotic paintings on the walls. The rooms still awaiting renovation are, for the time being, rather classic and unoriginal in style.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The George Washington was bought about a year ago by its current owner, who is only about thirty years old. Bit by bit, he is transforming it to suit his eccentric tastes which apparently know no bounds when it comes to costs. The lobby, too, is gradually starting to reflect his preferences, displaying a mixture of styles somewhere in between patriotic American and 18th century English. The small lounge next to the reception is a picture of simplicity furnished with a coffee table, two chairs and a brown leather divan displaying the American flag. It clashes with the painting of English country squires dressed in red and wearing wigs. When we visited, there were also two other very 'ordinary' green divans in this room, but the intention was to have them replaced as soon as possible. However, the fabric wallpaper with brown square patterning and designed by Ralph Lauren, is there to stay. The stripy pouf set next to the little table in the small lounge area looks strange enough to have been selected by the new management. A bookcase still displaying traces of white paint separates this space from the reception area.

    Food and drink

    The black wallpaper decorated with white vases filled with stylised flowers goes well with the furniture, which is set on an unusual black carpet. The tablecloths are white, and the chairs a dark ebony shade, further enhancing the general contrast of white against black. Breakfast is served from 7:00am to 10:30am. The hotel does not have a restaurant, but room service is available from 7:00am to 3:00pm and from 7:00pm to 11:00pm.

    To know

    The hotel was purchased by the current owner about a year ago, and its appearance is changing gradually as work is carried out on it. Guests can use the Wi-Fi internet access here free of charge.

      This is a hotel full of French style in which no copies or reproductions will be tolerated. The Bristol is one of the few luxury hotels in Paris that belongs to a European family (German) rather than one of the great families of Asia or the United Arab Emirates. Stylish, classy and refined, the Bristol holds great importance in the quality and authenticity of its features and materials. Its gourmet restaurant attracts a demanding clientele that is fond of excellent cuisine.

      The George V is one of the most prestigious Parisian palaces in the city. You barely have to cross the threshold before realising you are entering a hotel in which luxury, perfection and indulgence are the name of the game. Boasting rooms fit for a princess, impressive lounges and a Michelin-starred restaurant, the George V ticks all the boxes when it comes to satisfying even the most demanding of guests. The interior designer Pierre Yves Rochon oversaw the complete refurbishment of the building in 1997, and has since then continued to make improvements to the decor in the 18th Century style.

      The latest Parisian luxury hotel, the Shangri-La will seduce a demanding clientele that will know how to appreciate the richly ornate Empire style of this particular hotel. Nothing more can be said about the lengths taken to find the materials, designs, and other accessories that contribute to recreating the atmosphere of the 19th century, while at the same time offering the comfort and modernity of the 21st century. This extremely shiny and ornate Empire style may scare away some potential guests, however, it is still a real privilege to stay in this residence previously owned by a prince, the great nephew of Napoleon.

The Meurice is an exclusive haunt. the hotel's main restaurant, Le Meurice, is headed by 3 Michelin star Chef Yannick Alléno which is, needless to say, one of the highlights of a stay at the hotel. In a fantastic location right opposite the Jardin des Tuileries, the rooms are tastefully decorated and the service is impeccable.

    • W Paris - Opéra W Paris - Opéra W Paris - Opéra

      • Location 8.85

      Inaugurated on 28 February 2012, the W Paris - Opera has finally opened in the City of Light. The Starwood brand linked to fashion and trends thus has its own prestigious establishment in Paris.
      Nestled in a 19th century building, the hotel is in a great location. Design and modernity, with a conceptual touch, all come together here. Its designer is in the best position to explain why, since we're not sure it's really clear otherwise, but the W Paris-Opera is centred around the theme The Spark. The establishment thus defines itself as a "spark", creating a fictitious connection between the very first W hotel in New York and its newest sibling in Paris.

      At the heart of the Opera district, the W can already rely on its guests who are fans of the brand and hopes that word of mouth will make it the place to be in the area; not just for its rooms but for its restaurant and bar as well.
