July 24, 2007 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Hospes Palacio del BailioThere's a reason this tiny gem has racked up so many accolades and is noted on "It Lists" the world over. The latest from the Hospes Group, Spain's hippest hotelier which also runs the chic Hotel Lancaster in Paris, Hospes Palacio del Bailío is a 16th century palace turned design hotel. Surrounded by the architectural marvels of the city of Córdoba, the eighth century seat of the Moorish caliphate, the hotel itself is a stylish mix of contemporary luxury and fine historical details, like vaulted ceilings, beautiful frescoes, and 15th century doors. Indeed, in the atrium, a glass floor reveals a Roman villa that was unearthed beneath the building's foundations. There are 53 rooms and suites with sleek bathrooms, a courtyard swimming pool, Roman baths and signature Bodyna spa, and tapas bar and gourmet restaurant. Step outside and discover the riches of Córdoba, a UNESCO World Heritage site and ancient crossroads where narrow cobblestone streets wind past whitewashed walls and Moorish monuments.
