Barcelona has a gorgeous new hotel opening up either in February or March of this year, with March as the more likely month we’ll be able to check out and check into the new Cotton House Hotel. Part of the Marriott group’s new luxury expansion program, The Autograph Collection by Marriott, the new hotel is officially entitled Cotton House Hotel, The Autograph Collection. The name is a tribute to the hotel’s location, a gorgeous 19th-century building that was once the headquarters of the Catalan Association of Cotton Manufacturers. Cotton is one of the oldest industries in the region, and the guild was able to afford the best of the best for their home base. That translates into a massive marble staircase, and incredibly ornate decor complete with gold gilt. The building’s original library has been preserved, thanks to the efforts of interior design team of Lazaro Rosa-Violan, who tried to balance the historical details with a elegantly modern decor. The Cotton House Hotel is set to feature 75 guest rooms and seven suites, perfect for those seeking a boutique hotel experience in the heart of Barcelona.
