A bastion of old-world luxury, the Boscolo New York Palace hotel is housed in a landmark building constructed for the New York Life Insurance Company in the late 19th century. A 2006 hotel conversion preserved the magnificent Belle Époque curlicues, gilt columns, and other neo-Baroque adornments, especially in the ground-floor New York Café (worth a visit even if you're staying elsewhere). The substantially less ornate guest rooms, by Italian architect and designer Maurizio Papiri, blend earth tones with tasteful gold and silver accents; bathrooms include deep freestanding baths and "rain forest" showers. (By the end of 2009, an expansion will increase the room count from 112 to 199.) Much like the stately architecture, the service here from the attentive bellhops, valets, and concierges is reminiscent of a bygone era, which has made the hotel a favorite of the Continental cognoscenti. In a way, the hotel's great location, near Blaha Lujza tér (a busy square and metro station), is the source of its only downside: Traffic noise from the bustling boulevard out front can be heard in many of the guest rooms; for a quieter stay, ask for a room facing a side street.—Evan Rail
