Hyatt continues to grow its Unbound Collection, this time with the Párisi Udvar Hotel in Budapest. The hotel is the second hotel in Europe to enter the collection, and the third internationally.
The property is slated to open next year as a luxury 100-guestroom hotel.
Built in the 1900s, the structure boasts a rich history, surviving World War II relatively unscathed. After the war, the building held several apartments and has since undergone few renovations. It offers Moorish, Art Deco and Neo Gothic architecture styles, representing a series of Hungarian periods.
In addition to the guestrooms and suites, the new property will have 300 square meters of meeting space, a spa, fitness center, restaurant, bar and cafe. Dining is all planned to exist within the arcade, where there is a colored glass ceiling and hexagonal cupolas.
“We are delighted to collaborate with Párizs Property Kft and Mellow Mood Hotels to convert this iconic building into the second hotel for the brand in the region. The Unbound Collection by Hyatt is an ideal fit for the hotel, which boasts an incredible storied history and some of Hungary’s most impressive architecture,” said Peter Norman, senior vice president, acquisition and development, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Southwest Asia, Hyatt. “We look forward to continuing to grow this brand globally in a strategic and meaningful way.”

As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.
There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
ONCE THE FINAL MEETING WRAPS and the last contract is signed and sealed with a handshake, what’s next? Do you catch a flight back home or do you take advantage of the destination? If your next business trip is to Italy, we suggest adding a few more days to explore the country’s most amazing hot spots. Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
