Indigo fans, get ready to say 'Hola,' 'Shalom,' and....er, how do people greet each other in Wales? Anyway, what we mean to say is that the budget boutique brand, which is spreading like wildfire around the European continent and beyond, has just announced Hotel Indigo Barcelona-Plaza Catalunya, which, along with the upcoming Indigo Tel Aviv and Indigo Cardiff, will mark Indigo's first properties in each of those countries.
Financial tells us that Hotel Indigo Barcelona-Plaza Catalunya will be located in Barcelona's center, a few blocks away from Paseo de Gracia, and will offer 77 rooms.
More than 40 years after the Beatles were banned from playing in Israel, Sir Paul McCartney has landed in Tel-Aviv and checked into the Dan Hotel and will be preparing for an historic performance tonight.
The Dan, if you'll recall, was featured on this humble little website when one of our readers was so kind as to review it for us. To recap: the property is posh, it's located in the city's center and it's steps from the beach.
Every so often we feature a hotel review from one of our readers that we feel should be shared with the rest of you dear hotel guests. These reviews are highlighted because they are timely, about cool hotels in cool places and are relatively level-headed. Think you can submit one just like this? Send it in. Now, we present you with reader P's review of the Dan Hotel in Tel Aviv. Enjoy.
Tel Aviv is a city on the brink. With a daily-changing political climate in the region, there's a constant uncertainty in the air.
In recent years, the city has seen a slowing of the once widely reported suicide bombings and other violence and has entered a renaissance of sorts.
With that, tourism has increased steadily and the hospitality business has begun to respond to the demand. A vibrant cafe culture, excellent boutique shopping, an exciting restaurant-scene and a booming nightlife--the town has something for everyone.
During our recent visit, we stayed the Dan Tel Aviv. The hotel is set in the center of the city, steps from the beach and near to several cultural and shopping attractions. A member of the leading hotels of the world, one half of the hotel was more recently renovated with a modern aesthetic.
There's tons of hotel news flying around this week and we don't have time to give each and every story the love and attention it may deserve, so you will have to settle for some news briefs.
· Another Bear Sighting: A cinnamon baby bear was spotted swimming in a pool with guests at the Best Western Peaks Motel in Ouray, Colorado. Apparently the little guy "just jumped in for a little bit, and then crawled his way out." Much like his counterpart in Orlando.
· Deer is Hilton's First Guest: A deer crashed through a window at the Hilton Garden Inn in Sioux City, which is in final stages of construction. The deer "galloped a round a room and destroyed a designer chair." The Garden Inn will still open on schedule in July.
The meticulously renovated 1920s mansion has been updated with more contemporary indulgences, like a haute Southeast Asian eatery on the ground floor. Upstairs, rooms have private balconies and original period furnishings--think chairs, tables, and sofas by German designers Thonet--and art by the city's contemporary up-and-comers.
· $4 Rooms (kinda) at the St. Regis New York: NewYorkology reports that the St. Regis in New York is offering rooms for $4 for a night as a way to celebrate its history but there is a catch. You have to book two nights in a suite and the first night will cost ya at least $2,100.
· Presidio Hotel?: The Presidio in San Francisco, a historic military base, might be getting a 125-room hotel along with a museum and an entertainment center.
