    Marriott International has announced the opening of the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel, located just steps away from the Paseo de Gracia, the premier shopping and architectural district of Barcelona.In celebration of the grand opening, the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel last night hosted an exclusive event featuring a special musical performance by renowned Spanish artist, Rebeka. The performance was part of Renaissance Hotel’s RLife LIVE program, an entertainment and music platform that provides hotel guests and local patrons the chance to discover emerging and established artists on-site at Renaissance Hotels around the world.

    The hotel, formerly known as The Diplomatic Hotel, has now reopened as the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel following total renovation. The hotel is centrally located near popular tourist attractions including the famed Hotel Gaudí, where guests can see firsthand the fascinating architecture of Palau Güell. Otherhistoric landmarks just minutes from the hotel include Plaza Catalunya, Las Ramblas, Boquería market and Barrio Gótico – the city’s Gothic Quarter.

    Renaissance Hotels is known for encouraging guests to “Live Life to Discover” and get the most out of their travel experience. Earlier this month, the global lifestyle brand launched a new advertising / marketing campaign that encourages today’s business traveller to experience the hidden gems of each Renaissance hotel and to explore the destination with the help of Renaissance Hotels ‘Navigators’ — the brand’s hospitality lifestyle concierge service. The campaign asks traveller the question, “If you are travelling to a destination for business, why not make the most of your free time and discover something exceptional and unique.

    An oasis of calm and wellness, the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel’s 211 modern and spacious guestrooms are appointed with signature room amenities including iPod docking stations and flat screen televisions. Stunning views of the Barcelona skyline can be taken in at La Terrassa, the hotel’s sun-drenched roof top bar and lounge featuring flowing waterfalls, while tantalizing dining options include the CRU Steak House and cosmopolitan CUIT Bar and Lounge.

    Other highlights include a 24-hour fitness centre, business centre and seven unique facilities for meetings and events, each outfitted with modern technical and AV equipment.
