Grande Luxury on the River Danube in Budapest. Please visit our Piper Hertneck blog for the full article on our stay at the Hotel Gresham Palace in Budapest. Owned by the Four Seasons Hotel Group, the Gresham Palace is the most fabulous example of Art Nouveau restoration that we’ve ever seen.
We raised all of the interior door openings all the way up. - We used crown moldings that projected inward more than normal. - We painted a lot of the ceilings light gray or light blue. - We hung all of the curtains as high as possible. - We hung chandeliers a little higher than our standard height (we typically hang them 66" up from the floor but we went even higher up in this case). - We upholstered some of the walls in the same fabric as the curtains.
