Once we managed to submit our info for baggage delivery, a nice man was waiting for us in the public area of the airport. Despite waiting an hour for us to appear, he was very polite and friendly.
I loved the ~approximate 40 minute drive from the airport into the city. Despite the light rain, we were still able to appreciate the scenes and admire the historic architecture of the city.
Most at of the hotel are located on the “Pest” side of Budapest. Peggy selected the Marriott Budapest because it met the criteria that we were looking for.
Just before we arrived at the hotel, we observed the Liberty and Chain bridges and the illuminated sighta from Castle Hill on the Buda side of Budapest.
The Marriott was beautifully decorated for the holidays both inside and out. The girls were so glad that we made it to our destination.
I had selected a place for dinner and gave out to the girls that wanted to stay at the hotel. The restaurant hotel was beautifully decorated complete with a view of the Danube.
After dinner I went looking for a drugstore and found the Christmas market. I’ll save the pics for the next post.
