The Four Seasons Hotel

The former Gresham Palace was recently refurbished completely and opened as the Four Seasons Hotel directly across from the Chain Bridge in Budapest. For some reason the gold enhancements throughout the facade of the building did not show through and that is unfortunate. The entrance now closed by a glass door is where a gate used to be and automobiles could drive into the courtyard. The new design made better use of space and the former drive way is now a splendid mosaic covered entry hall.

You can kind of see the gold when you enlarge your picture. Sometimes pictures really can't catch the essence of the real thing.

Wow! Sounds impressive, to say the least. I can see the gold behind that man at the top of the building, in the niche.

Beautiful building. I'm sure the interior renovations must match the rest of the building.
