Vive Le Roi! George V In Paris Takes Top Honors In Institutional Investor Magazine's Survey of the World's Best Hotels

    New York, November 12 (ots/PRNewswire) - When Saudi prince Al-Walid bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz bought the George V in Paris, in 1996, he declared that it was "simply the best hotel in the world." Eight years later, the refurbished hotel, managed by Four Seasons Hotels under a 99-year contract, is the top choice of a high-powered panel of senior corporate and financial executives surveyed by Institutional Investor magazine for its 24th annual ranking of the World's Best Hotels. The Four Seasons George V, which features a restaurant with three Michelin Guide stars and charges US$850 per night for a room, rises from 11th in last year's ranking.

    Taking second place in this year's ranking is Bangkok's Sukhothai, which offers a restaurant set in a water garden and "seems to float on a lotus pool," as one recent guest put it. At the third-ranked Bel-Air of Los Angeles, the hotel's Presidential Suite is tucked away behind a lush, 12-acre garden.

    Here are the top ten hotels in the world, as ranked by respondents to Institutional Investor's World's Best Hotels Survey.
