The Palace is a fashionable, landmark hotel just a few minutes walk from central Wenceslas Square that will appeal to architecture buffs and fans of early-20th century Art Nouveau , particularly the original mint-green facade, with its curvaceous canopied entryway, and the dark-paneled, elegant public areas and dining rooms. I particularly love the simple white-glass chandeliers that lend a 1920s feel. The rooms, themselves, are larger than average and richly appointed in lush carpets, high-thread-count sheets and imported marble on the bathroom walls, though I have to admit that the color schemes (yellow walls and dark green curtains) feel ordinary and due for an update. This was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis's choice when she visited Prague in the early 1990s.
