Description
A five star hotel in Baghdad.

The entrance of this hotel featured an unflattering mosaic of George Bush Sr. so that everyone entering the hotel had to step on Bush's face. The caption read "Bush is Criminal". After U.S. forces took control of Baghdad in 2003, the mosaic was removed.

The building took a missile hit during the First Gulf War. The missile fragments are still on display in the lobby.
