Four Seasons George V Paris receives Palace distinction

French Tourism Board Atout France confirmed yesterday the attribution of Palace distinction to the Four Seasons George V Paris. The George V becomes the fifth Parisian hotel to hold the highest hotel ranking in France, joining Le Bristol, Le Meurice, The Park Hyatt Vendôme and the Plaza-Athénée which received the distinction earlier this year.

Not including the George V, which is considered one of the best luxury hotels in the world, in the Palace category from the beginning cast serious doubts over the criteria and selection process  of the French tourism authority. A new wave of applications by five star hotels will be reviewed by the committee in November.
