The celebs: Miranda Kerr, Oprah Winfrey and Leonardo DiCaprio
The Hotel: Four Seasons Hotel Georges V
Who: Virtually every A-List celeb has graced the Georges V at one time or another, but the highest profile this year was the wedding extravaganza of Kimye (that’s Kim Kardashian and Kanye in case you’ve missed the massive media coverage). The Kardashians and their wedding party could have stayed anywhere in Paris, but they chose to be in close proximity to Hermes and posted up at the Georges V for the Paris festivities.
Why: Paris is synonymous with luxury, and its cup runneth over with a surge of new hotels this past few years. Big-time names like the Mandarin, Shangri-La and most recently, the Peninsula, are competing hard for their share of the luxury market. But while there are many new kids on the block, it’s hard to beat the classic Georges V. From the lavish signature flowers throughout the hotel, scene-y bar that is always en vogue and large, comfortable, deeply relaxing rooms; you’re without a doubt in Paris. Referred to by regulars as “The Cinq”, it’s steps away from the Champs Elysees and for old-school late night debauchery, the nightclub Le Baron. And if you didn’t get the memo, the Right Bank is cool again.
