By: Five Star Alliance

Gran Hotel la Florida
Gran Hotel la Florida was built in 1924 by Doctor Andreu, who wanted to build the best hotel in Barcelona. It thrived until Spain's civil war, when it was used as a military hospital. It returned to its hotel roots in 1950, and became popular with Barcelona's high society, especially as a summer residence for well-heeled Catalan families. 

In subsequent years, Ernest Hemingway, James Stewart, George Sanders, Rock Hudson, Princess Fabiola and the prince of Belgium stayed at the prestigious hotel. But in 1979, La Florida succumbed to the passing of time and it closed its doors. This boutique hotel of Barcelona was rescued in 2001 thanks to a meticulous renovation that lasted for four years.

Glenn Hotel
Glenn Hotel Autograph Collection
 
is housed in the historic Glenn Building. Located at 110 Marietta Street, it was built in 1923, and was named after John Thomas Glenn, a prominent attorney and the mayor of Atlanta from 1889-1891.

The Glenn building was constructed on an historic site. According to the contemporary record of General Tecumseh Shermanís march on Atlanta, the house on that site, which was owned and occupied by Major Hamilton Goode of the Confederate army, was spared. It is significant to note that the intersection of Marietta and Spring Street was part of the original center of old Atlanta.
