Four Seasons Gresham Palace

Paul Feig, Director/Producer

“When we made the movie “Spy” we stayed at the Four Seasons Gresham Palace in Budapest. It’s gorgeous, art nouveau. My wife and I stayed in a corner suite—our living room looked over the Chain Bridge and the Danube. They let us roll a big camera crane into the lobby, which was pretty amazing because it’s all inlaid tile. It’s the best-run hotel I’ve ever been in.”

The Montage in Laguna Beach. It’s not too far from Los Angeles so you can visit for just one night and feel recharged. You can have your own bungalow suite with a view of the ocean, and it feels different from your typical hotel.”
