The anchor of the city's Plaza España, this five-star luxury hotel, now part of the Bluebay chain, has many of the amenities of a sprawling resort, right in the middle of the city. The facade is Spanish Renaissance, and it has a late Gothic arcaded courtyard, with mosaics and arches throughout. Most of the bathrooms are spacious, and all were renovated in late 2012. Suites are an option for families with kids. The front desk offers great personal service, and there's
a wonderful new restaurant, too.
