St. Georges Hotel in Beirut, Lebanon is a landmark building built in the late 1920s. Parisian architect Auguste Perret came to Beirut to design the building with Antoine Tabet. The building was severely damaged during the Lebanon's civil war. In recent years towering buildings and marina development have gained supremacy over it.
The blast that killed Rafik Hariri in 2005 seriously damaged the building and a bronze statue of him is nearby. The building was being restored at the time of the assassination. Work to renovate and reopen the hotel has since stalled in a dispute with Solidere, and the hotel has remained closed for more than a decade.
