After 30 months of intense work of renovation and further delays brought forth by COVD19’s health crisis, the Monsieur George hotel and its restaurant Galanga will reopen its doors on Monday August 24th 2020.
The first 5-star hotel in the L’Hôtel Monsieur George collection, Monsieur George owes its name to the street that welcomes it, George Washington and a nod to the illustrious First President of the United States.
Each boutique hotel in this collection offers an immersion into the history of the district or street of its location as part of the experience. The decor owes its beauty to the London-based architect and decorator, Anouska Hempel, who for the first time in France is creating what made her an international success. Her work brings out an unclassifiable, warm, timeless, and unique place to live.
The forty-six rooms and suites designed as a town house offer travelers from near and far the chic of a timeless address. The Windsor rooms are a perfect representations of their comfort and an hommage to the Duke of Windsor and Mrs. Simpson.
The checker rooms are named after the 16th century manor-house which is the secondary residence of all prime ministers where Mrs. Margaret Thatcher spent the happiest summers of her eleven-year reign. The checker rooms are adorned with checkerboard floors with rough patterns cut like a chess-board with black and light brown lacquered tones.
On the restaurant side, the surprised don’t stop between marble, thick velvet and large mirrors. Rather, the shimmering setting of shades of green, savory classic and exotic dishes offered by the chefs at the Galanga restaurant bring out a full dining experience at Monsieur George. Some signature dishes at Galanga Restaurant are prawn ravioli, carpaccio of yellow-tail, and mature beef in teriyaki seaweed.
The basement of the hotel nestles a delightful spa which references on wellbeing and the art of better living.
Monsieur George is full of other secret places to surprise you. For example, the top floor of the hotel has suites of absolute white fabric and decor inspired by the celestial clouds. There is also a cocktail bar and a tasting cellar with more than 1400 bottles.
