PRG_151_375x300

Prague is famous for being classic, but one of its top hotels has some new and noteworthy touches. The Four Seasons Hotel Prague, a collection of three historic buildings and one new building on the banks of the Vltava River in the Old City, has unveiled newly decorated Presidential Suite in the Baroque building and rooms in the Modern building.

Presidential Suite
The new decór of the Presidential Suite, located in a Baroque structure dating back to 18th century, is indigenous to the architectural style. Included are curved and sculpted walls, some with sgrafito paintings (a centuries-old paint and wet plaster technique that literally means "graffiti") and Venetian plasters. Other nice touches include a seating area with sofas and a fireplace, a piano by the window with river views and a reading corner with leather armchairs and library. Must see: The Czech crystal chandelier and hand-painted wall in sgrafito style in the suite's dining room.

The one, two or four bedroom Presidential Suite is located on the second level of the Baroque building and offers unique views of the Vltava River, Charles Bridge, Malá Strana and Prague Castle from the living, dining rooms, and the master bedroom. For those looking for a unique and exquisite experience, the Hotel allows the entire Baroque building to be reserved for complete privacy.

The Modern Building
Dating from the Hotel’s opening in 2001, the Modern building represents contemporary life in the capital. The style, created by French designer Pierre-Yves Rochon, is inspired by the Austro-Hungarian Modernista style of the 1920s and 30s. Two color options are featured: a hint of turquoise accentuates a palette of black, grey, white and chrome, and warm rust accentuates a palette of taupe, brown and chrome. Both options have Bohemian crystal elements and Modernista to honor the Czech aesthetic, while black and white photos of old Prague evoke a residential ambiance. The Modern building has nine room categories for guests who prefer a more contemporary environment for their stay.

Five Year Project
These developments are part of a five-year remodeling project for the hotel that has already seen the Lobby and Renaissance building complete their renovations, and remodeling of Classical building will follow. Redesign of the Hotel´s restaurant is scheduled for completion in the winter of 2012.

"Our visitors now have a choice of contemporary, Renaissance or Baroque designs," says Rene Beauchamp, general manager of Four Seasons Hotel Prague. "The response so far has been very positive, especially from our return guests who now have an opportunity to choose a different experience depending on the purpose of their stay or current preferences."
