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.
