New York Palace Budapest was opened in 1894 as the opulent European headquarters for the New York Life insurance company. An eclectic, Belle Époque palace, it was designed by Alajos Hauszmann, a famous Austro-Hungarian architect.The building drew on Italian Renaissance, Baroque, Gothic and Art Nouveau influences. Upon opening, the first two floors of the palace were occupied by New York Life’s offices; the other floors were used as living quarters for the firm’s employees. During the First and Second World Wars, it closed its doors and the building suffered significant damage. In the 1950s it was used as a sports shop and tourism office, before closing for a period in the 1990s. It reopened as a luxury hotel in May 2006 and in 2020 the hotel was added to the portfolio of Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas. The White Salon is located at the iconic Anantara New York Palace Hotel.
