We sift through newsletters, promotions, updates, rants, raves, and reviews to find the absolute best luxury hotels in various categories. Our team of luxury travel experts certainly knows a thing or two about what’s considered to be an exceptional hotel, so we’ve put our top picks together to create a list of Five Star Alliance Favorites!
Lucy, our Director of Digital Operations here at Five Star Alliance, has voted the Gran Hotel la Florida in Barcelona as one of her favorite spots in Spain. This hotel is perfectly situated 300 meters above the city, offering spectacular views of Barcelona and the Mediterranean Sea. Our insider sources tell us that Bruce Springsteen (Lucy’s favorite singer) stays here when he’s in Barcelona, which may very well be reason enough to find this hotel as a charming gem in the bustling city in Spain. A few key highlights of the Gran Hotel la Florida include:
- Children service's including baby sitting and special activities upon request.
- Heated indoor /outdoor Swimming-pool. -
- ZenZone SPA including Sauna, Steam Bath, Pressure Showers, Ice Fountain, Jacuzzi, Hydrotherapy and treatment cabins.
