SPAIN
HOTEL ARTS BARCELONA
 
Rising 44 stories above the recently developed Olympia Marina village, overlooking the sparkling waters of the Mediterranean is this showplace for contemporary Catalan and Spanish artists with over 1,000 innovative paintings, murals, and sculptures that grace the public areas and the 482 spacious, beautifully appointed accommodations ranging in size from 485-square-feet to the 4,815 square-foot Presidential Suite. Located on the top ten floors with sweeping vistas of the city and sea are 27 one-, two-, and three-bedroom duplex apartments. The 14,000-square foot ballroom with 4,600 feet of pre-function area can accommodate 1,350 persons, theater-style and 1,000 for a banquet.
 
Of the five dining venues, Arola’s is Barcelona’s “in place”, the place to see and be seen. An outdoor swimming pool and lounge area in a park overlooking the marina and nearby public beach is the place for daytime sunning and relaxation. On premises are several boutiques, a fitness center, hair salon and state-of-the-art spa offering body and facial treatments in eight treatment rooms. Tennis, golf, bicycling, sailing and windsurfing can be arranged.
 
Strong Points: This is the best address in Barcelona for “R and R” in a more atmospheric location with impeccable service, fine dining, lavish accommodations and numerous facilities.
