We stayed at the beautiful Majestic Hotel & Spa during our recent trip to Barcelona, Spain – one of the cities first luxury hotels boasting past famous regular guests like Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso as well as the Queen of Spain. From the minute I booked the hotel through to our return home, their service was top notch. Since flights to Europe usually arrive early in the morning, I would typically try to book our hotel the night before so that it’s ready right when we land but they weren’t available when I was originally reserving our stay. Since I knew we would be exhausted from the lengthy flight, I coordinated with Hotel Majestic’s concierge to have a car service pick us up at the airport and I worked with their spa to reserve 90 minute couples massages when we arrived. Although I was concerned with our language barrier (I never learned Spanish!), the hotel’s concierge was extremely helpful by email and had no issues understanding what we needed. Our room had a beautiful view of Paseo de Gracia and Antoni Gaudi’s Casa Batlló and the hotel itself happens to be located in the heart of the luxury shopping area and houses Barcelona’s Chanel boutique. A shopaholic’s dream! Needless to say, I thoroughly enjoyed our stay from start to finish and can’t wait to return!
