This past weekend we celebrated my friends twenty first birthday. Since we weren’t traveling this weekend we decided to get a room at the Hotel Arts. Hotel Arts is a chain from the Ritz-Carlton. The hotel was gorgeous and very accommodating. You choose whether you want a water front or city view. Our hotel overlooked the city and was right in front of La Sagrada Familia. Before going out to celebrate her birthday, we made use of the hotels facilities. They offer a fitness center, casino, massages, a jacuzzi, Turkish/steam bath, and an outdoor swimming pool. As for rooms, you can get a standard room, a suite, or rent the apartments. We got a suite which had an extra living room because we wanted to be able to have people over. The hotel was very obliging to all of us. In the morning they offer room service or you can go downstairs for breakfast. We had the American breakfast which was delicious. When choosing somewhere to stay in Barcelona, I would certainly recommend considering Hotel Arts!
