Four Season George V~~Paris

The Hotel George V is located off the Champs Elysees on Avenue George V. Built by American Joel Hillman at a cost of $31 million, the 8-story, 245-room luxury hotel opened in 1928. Four Seasons Hotels became the management company in 2008. Several turning point scenes in my novel 'French Heart' take place in this gorgeous location that is near the Rue St. Dominique apartment of one of my characters, Gabrielle, and also adjacent to the Golden Triangle shops and foodie Rue Cler.
