Avenue George V is a street in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. It is 730 metres (800 yards) long and 40 metres (44 yards) wide, it starts at the Alma and ends at No. 99 avenue des Champs-Elysées, and marks the western limit of Paris's "golden triangle" (triangle d'or). Four Seasons Hotel George V is located on this avenue.[1]

Until Bastille Day 1918, the avenue was called Avenue d'Alma, it received its current name in honour of the British monarch George V, who was on the throne at the time, and had supported France during the First World War.
