King George in Athens Reopens as part of the Luxury Collection

With panoramic views of the Acropolis from its location on Syntagma Square in Athens, the King George has long been one of the top addresses in Athens. (The first guests were ushered behind the neoclassical façade in 1936.). After a major overhaul, the famous hotel will reopen this month as part of Starwood’s Luxury Collection. Many of the 102 rooms and suites have views of the Parthenon.

For Athens views, the Royal Penthouse is unrivaled. Perched on the ninth floor of the hotel, the two-bedroom suite has a private terrace with a pool and open-air Jacuzzi facing the Acropolis. Diners can also get drunk on the vista from Tudor Hall, the hotel’s signature restaurant on the 7th floor. The King George will be the 8th hotel in Greece for Starwood’s Luxury Collection.
