New to Five Star Alliance: El Palauet Living Barcelona

March 2, 2014
By: Five Star Alliance

El Palauet Living Barcelona

Meet El Palauet Living Barcelona. Located on Barcelona’s most exclusive boulevard at Passeig de Gracia 113, this five-story palatial mansion, built in 1906, is an extraordinary example of Modernisme (the sumptuous Catalan version of Art Nouveau). Its architect, Pere Falques, is also known for his ornate lampposts jutting from ceramic tile benches that are sidewalk landmarks at the Passeig de Gracia. He was a contemporary of Antoni Gaudi, whose acclaimed buildings are nearby. The facade of El Palauet reflects the great prosperity, creative genius, and unbridled imagination of the era. Palauet, in the Catalan language, is a small palau or palace.

Meet Casa Madrona Hotel and SpaThe story of this historic boutique hotel dates back to 1885, when William Barrett, Secretary-Treasurer for the San Francisco Gas and Electric Company and his wife Clara built a lavish "casa" on a hillside overlooking Sausalito. The location provided a wide-angle view of San Francisco Bay Area, teeming with powerful freight ships, elegant yachts and side-wheeler ferryboats. In 1980 it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a treasured landmark. In November 2003, the historic hotel saw the addition of Poggio, an increase in the number of hotel rooms from 34 to 63, and the addition of a spectacular, 3,000-square-foot spa, a boardroom, a private dining room, and three new function rooms.
