Paris is known for being an incredible market for luxury hotels, and arguably the Four Seasons George V snags the number one spot in the city. It’s one of only about two dozen hotels in all of France to be given “Palace” status, which is the highest honor that can be bestowed on a hotel in the country.
By many it’s even considered to be one of the top Four Seasons properties in the world (and there are lots of great ones to choose from, from their portfolio of Hawaii properties, to the Las Cabos property, to the Bora Bora property).
As you’d probably expect, the Four Seasons George V isn’t cheap (to put it mildly), though there are some tricks to maximizing value at the property, which I wanted to go over in this post.

No matter what type of room you book, I’d highly recommend going through a Four Seasons Preferred Partner travel agent, because they can add perks that you can’t get directly online (more on that below).
Four Seasons Paris George V basics
The 244 room Four Seasons George V is located in Paris’ Golden Triangle designer shopping district, as it’s bordered by the Champs-Elysées, Avenue Marceau, and Avenue Montaigne.
The hotel features several restaurants, bars, and lounges (including a three Michelin star restaurant), plus a spa, pool, and gym.

Four Seasons Paris George V promotions
The Four Seasons Paris George V publishes their promotions directly on their website.
Currently the hotel is offering the below promotions, though note that they’re all capacity controlled, so they won’t all be available on all dates. If they are available they’ll show up directly on Four Seasons’ website when you search dates.
Here are the deals:
- Through December 31, 2020, book a minimum of two nights and receive a 150EUR hotel credit if you book a room, and a 250EUR credit if you book a suite
- Through December 31, 2020, book a suite for a minimum of three nights and receive a complimentary roundtrip airport transfer
- Through December 31, 2020, receive 10% off when you book at least 14 days in advance
None of these promotions are combinable, and as I said above, they’re not available over all dates. If you’re eligible but the promotions aren’t showing, then chances are they’re not available.
How to get free breakfast & upgrades at the Four Seasons Paris
Here’s the real easy way to get some extra value for your stay at the Four Seasons, which is also easy to overlook.
In addition to the above promotions, there’s a way to get even more value with Four Seasons stays, and there’s literally no reason not to take advantage of it. Four Seasons has what’s called the Four Seasons Preferred Partner program, which allows select travel advisors to offer additional perks for Four Seasons stays.
You don’t pay any extra for booking through Preferred Partner, but you potentially receive benefits like complimentary breakfast, room upgrades, additional hotel credits, and more.
This is combinable with the promotions Four Seasons usually offers, so there’s honestly no downside to going through an agent.
At a minimum getting free breakfast is an awesome perk. For example, the hotel ordinarily charges an extra 100EUR for breakfast for two, while that’s included when booking through Preferred Partner (and that’s only the beginning of what they can offer.
If you’re looking for a Four Seasons Preferred Partner agent, you can contact Ford at [email protected], and he’d be happy to help. He might even be able to help if you have an existing reservation.
Four Seasons Paris George V bottom line
The Four Seasons George V is perhaps the most iconic Four Seasons property in the world, and the price reflects that.
While the hotel isn’t cheap, there are definitely ways to maximize value. In addition to taking advantage of the promotions, make sure you book through a Four Seasons Preferred Partner agent so that they can add additional benefits. This won’t cost you anything extra, and in almost all cases they can add value compared to booking directly.
