Designed in the style of a New York City loft on a tree-shaded street in the heart of the Eixample, this hotel blends exposed brick, steel, and glass with Greek and Italian marble and Indonesian tamarind wood to achieve a downtown cool. Touches of Buddhist and Hindu art add a sense of Zen tranquillity. Rooms have a certain masculine aesthetic, with black leather sofas and headboards, chrome, and dark bedding. Interior-facing rooms have private balconies. The first-rate Mediterranean and Asian fusion restaurant and the rooftop solarium add the final pampering touches.
