Heading to Barcelona this year? The Majestic Hotel, a landmark on Passeig de Gracia since 1918, put the finishing touches on a three-year renovation project at the end of 2013. Under the watchful eye of designer Antonio Obrador, the five-star hotel was completely remodeled in a contemporary style with designer fabrics and décor.

Guest rooms were enlarged, so the total room count was reduced from 303 to 275. The 9th floor is completely privatized for residents of the six penthouses, which have private terraces with magnificent city panoramas. (These used to be the apartments for the Soldevila-Casals family, owners of the Majestic Group.)

The rooftop swimming pool and solarium takes in views of Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia all the way to the sea, and the adjacent spa has an encyclopedic menu of treatments. An added plus for foodies: Michelin-starred chef Nandu Jubany now helms the kitchens. Note: The Majestic can also host business conventions and weddings.
