The Hotel Arts is a 44-storey, 483 room luxury hotel on the seafront of Barcelona, in Spain.
Contrary to popular belief, it was not built to service the 1992 Summer Olympics, though its construction was part of the big changes underwent by the city to prepare the Games. It is operated by Ritz-Carlton.
The hotel underwent a complete renovation in 2006, installing new technology and upgrading the rooms and bathrooms into modern, luxurious spaces.
Hotel Arts is set on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, its pool is surrounded by gardens and offers guests the chance to sunbathe next to one of Barcelona’s most famous pieces of contemporary public art—a monumental golden fish sculpture by Frank Gehry, which was created for the ’92 Games.
