Four Seasons George V Gets Rochon to Design a New Penthouse

France has traditionally held the number one position as a tourist destination in Europe. And the capital city Paris receives the largest number of tourists visiting the country. There are, of course many attractions for visitors to France but it is their infrastructure and their warm and welcoming attitude that has sustained them at the top as a destination. The figures confirm the fact as 79.5 million people visited France in the year 2011. The figure was double the total population of France. In this scenario it always makes sense for luxury hotels to have a property in France, particularly Paris. There are many of them in the city but more keep coming as there is business for everybody.

Arrival of New Hotels Keeps Older Ones on Toes

Shangri La Paris opened in the former residence of Roland Bonaparte, Raffles Le Royal Monceau has started doing brisk business and the Peninsula Paris is the latest luxury hotel in Paris to open its doors for guests. Under the circumstances it becomes important for the older established hotels to keep reinventing themselves in order to stay ahead of the competition. They have to be on their toes all the time even to retain their regular clientele. The hotels keep trying new things in terms of adding a new wing or introducing a new service and amenities. Some of the older hotels prefer going for a complete renovation and even shut down the hotel for the purpose even if it takes a couple of years.

The New Penthouse has Been Designed as the Ultimate in Luxury

The hospitality business has a lot of potential and opportunities but it is a tough business. You have to constantly devise packages to attract new customers and retain the old ones. Four Seasons George V is no different and is in the process of reinventing itself and present itself in a new light to its loyal customer base. They are going in for an overall renovation of rooms and have decided to add a luxurious penthouse in the process. The penthouse is being designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon on the eighth floor of the property and he has been given a free hand. He has pulled out all stops to make it one of the best you may see in Paris. The walls have been done in sycamore, majilite, and silk. The travertine flooring add a touch of class.

Four Seasons George V Penthouse Tariff Sure to be in Five Figures

It is not just the walls and floors that are deluxe but the entire 160 sq meter of space is being turned into the most luxurious space in the city. The furnishing will be lavish, the glassware will be Baccarat Crystal. Its six terraces and winter garden will provide the best views of Les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower. Hotel’s master florist Jeff Leatham is justifiably famous for his magical displays in the lobby of the hotel. He brings the same magic to the penthouse as you can see flowers all over. The bathroom of the Penthouse is equally spectacular with some design elements borrowed from their famous Ty Warner Penthouse at the Four Seasons New York. The Penthouse is ready to be opened for the guests but it is not being booked online at the moment. Even the tariff of the high end penthouse has not been declared but it would be reasonable to assume that it would be in five figures.
