Hotel El Palace Barcelona Review

Founded in 1919 by Caesar Ritz, this is the original Ritz, the grande dame of Barcelona hotels, renamed in 2005. The imperial lobby piles on the glitz with marble, gilded columns, and a massive crystal chandelier. Guest rooms continue the white-glove treatment with Regency furniture and decorative fireplaces; some rooms have Roman-style mosaics in the baths. The restaurant, Caelis, serves first-rate French cuisine.
