Avenida Palace Review

A minute's walk from Plaça Catalunya and the Passeig de Gràcia, this hotel earns top marks for location—and for nostalgia. Opened in 1952, the Avenida Palace is everything a luxury hotel was expected to be back in the day: weighty, ornate, serious. The sort of place you might expect to have a Winged Victory in bronze somewhere around, on a marble pedestal—and sure enough, there is one, on the landing of the grand staircase in the lobby, under the cupola. The classical style is echoed in the guest rooms: patterned carpets, period furniture, big solid wardrobes. Bathrooms have Gilchrist & Soames toiletries. The Beatles stayed here in 1965—an event commemorated in the "Beatles Suite."
