Openings - Spain - 2006-04-19

Two, four-star boutique hotels opened in 2005 in Catalonia, the Dusquesa de Cardona in Barcelona and the Bremon Hotel in Cardona. These 19th century styled, Romanesque hotels are anything but old-fashioned. The Dusquesa is a 44-room hostelry with a roof-top pool and solarium, sweeping views of the city, vaulted cielings, and rooms equipped with high speed internet and LCD Televisions. The Bremon, consisting of 19 rooms, is located in the heart of the city's medieval district. It features the Les Monges Restaurant which serves regional dishes made from seasonal products.
