In the heart of Paris’ 8th arrondissement. George Washington, the first President of the United States, gave his name to the hotel and to the street, one of the best located in the capital, as it leads to the top of the Champs-Élysées, a stone’s throw from the Arc de Triomphe, yet sufficiently secluded to remain quiet.
The first 5* hotel in the French Adresses Hôtels group, includes La Ponche, Monsieur Aristide and Hôtel des Académies et des Arts, Monsieur George is a dandyish address of exquisite refinement designed by renowned London interior designer Anoushka Hempel. Grandiloquence personified, the place is dressed in marble, velvet, aged mirrors, heavy fabrics, engravings and zelliges. We could be in London, in the home of a lord returning from a world tour, or perhaps on the shores of Lake Como at the home of another famous George. In reality, we’re in Paris, just a few steps from the world’s most beautiful avenue.
All chiaroscuro and “Jamesbondian”, the George style is expressed in 46 rooms, including 3 suites. The Junior and Franklin suites, both plush and cozy, are nestled under the roofs to offer guests a superb panorama, while the Garden suite, on the other hand, is located on the ground floor and is a duplex with a private interior garden. There, glass windows and quilted mirrors reflect the Parisian sky. Here, the dormers and balconies open onto the Eiffel Tower or Sacré-Cœur.
SPA & FITNESS – Private in-room yoga classes and the treatment menu (relaxing or energizing massages and Japanese facials) are designed by Le Tigre and give access to a Japanese hammam, a sauna and a fitness area hidden in the basement.
RESTAURANT GALANGA – Chef Thomas Danigo’s Galanga offers two gastronomic menus, in 5 or 7 courses.
RESTAURANT MONSIEUR GEORGE – Bistronomic lunch table.
BAR – Enjoy the experiential setting while sipping tea or a house cocktail, Windsor, Chequer, Lady Anouska (champagne, Earl Grey tea, pear) or Monsieur George (Bombay Saphire Gin, elderflower, matcha) while snacking on truffle and parmesan fries, a Caesar salad, or a warm chocolate mousse.
CELLAR – Tastings and private dinners for up to 6 guests are organized in the cellar, a secret refuge where fine bottles of wine lie dormant, with an excellent selection of Bordeaux vintages.
BRUNCH – Every Sunday from 12 to 3 pm.
