Place: Barcelona Spain
The Best Hotels in Barcelona
by Chris Robertson

Traveling to Barcelona involves choosing a place to stay. The Barcelona hotel you choose can made a tremendous difference in your enjoyment of your vacation or business trip, yet it's difficult to find a Barcelona hotel that meets your needs if you haven't been to the city before. Taking into account service, quality, price, and location are important, but Barcelona hotels can offer so much more - such as views of sites steeped in history and easy access to transportation.

The best hotels in Barcelona include the Eurostars Grand Marina Hotel, located on the water in the heart of Port Vell. One of Barcelona's most unique hotels is the Claris Hotel, which was once a nineteenth-century neoclassical palace. Culture buffs may wish to make Barcelona hotel reservations at Le Meridien Barcelona Hotel, which is in the center of the city and close to the Liceo Opera House, the Museo Picasso, and the Gothic Quarter. Those who love to shop until they drop might choose the Intercontinental Princess Sofia Hotel, which is close to the city's exclusive shopping district. The Colon Hotel offers gorgeous views of the Cathedral of Barcelona, while the Expo Barcelona Hotel is in the heart of the business district.

Barcelona offers a multitude of sights, sounds, and experiences for every visitor. With miles of redeveloped seafront, you can enjoy a wonderful day at the beach, soaking in the sun and partaking of the shops, restaurants, and festivities dotting the shoreline. The Museo Picasso and Fundacion Joan Miro, along to nearly four dozen other private and public museums provide art aficionados with the opportunity to admire local and world renown paintings, sculptures and drawings. Fans of the Olympics will enjoy visiting the site of the 1992 Summer Games, strolling through the Olympic Village and viewing the names of 257 Gold Medalists in Placa dels Campions. With architecture dating back to Roman times, you will enjoy walking tours of the city that include sites such as the Roman Wall and Roman aqueduct. Steeped in history yet very much a part of the twenty-first century, Barcelona vibrantly integrates old with new.

Barcelona is known for its lively nightlife, with choices ranging from cocktail lounges and dance clubs to karaoke bars and the theater. Known for its terrace dining in open-air restaurants, Barcelona is a gastronome's delight. From Mediterranean fare to traditional Spanish dishes, dining in Barcelona is an experience that fills all of the senses.

Barcelona is a joy to visit, whether for pleasure or business. Just keep in mind that, when you make your Barcelona hotel reservations, you choose a Barcelona hotel that has the quality, service, and location that you need.
