Hotel in the Center of Barcelona Celebrates the City's Art, Music and Festivals

The Renaissance Barcelona Hotel's Latest Package Creates a Cultural Revolution for Visitors

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Oct 4, 2013) - Europe, for many people, is synonymous with the notion of culture. From visual masterpieces to cyber sculpture, there's not much you can't find on the Continent. This is especially true of Barcelona, where a national love of pleasure converges with a legacy of creativity. No wonder then that Renaissance Barcelona Hotel has made experiencing this city's treasure trove of cultural experiences the focus of its latest package, Barcelona Art Discovery. 

Guests who book the package will enjoy access to the permanent and temporary exhibitions in six renowned museums, including the Picasso Museum, the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Joan Miró Foundation. From this hotel in Barcelona, guests embark on a one-of-a-kind journey as they visit each museum. They can travel back in time to medieval Spain, for example, cruise through eras like Surrealism and Dadaism and then explore the pieces being created by contemporary artists.

At the end of each day, visitors can look forward to retreating to some of the most sumptuous hotel rooms in Barcelona, Spain. Plasma televisions, iPod docking stations and free Wi-Fi complement these coolly designed spaces where luxury and aesthetics unite.

Aesthetics, in fact, inform much of Barcelona, well beyond the visual arts and accommodations. Between old-fashioned pageants and hip-hop festivals, nary a day passes without something to check out. This national endorsement of celebration is a big reason why groups hosting events in Barcelona routinely enjoy successful turnouts.

Those visiting the city this fall, however, are in for a special treat: The Voll-Damm International Jazz Festival of Barcelona. Featuring more than 100 concerts and activities between October 19 and December 1, 2013, this festival brings the who's who of the jazz world to 20 venues around the city. This is the 45th year Barcelona has put on the show, and it just gets bigger and better every year.

The Barcelona Art Discovery package starts at 215EUR per night and is available through December 28, 2014. In addition to a deluxe, city-view or superior room, it includes daily buffet breakfast and admission to six museums. Visitors may use the promotional code ECEO to book the package.

About Renaissance Barcelona Hotel
Featuring 211 renovated guestrooms and a location that puts visitors just a stone's throw away from sights like Las Ramblas and La Sagrada Familia, the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel embodies the vitality of this cosmopolitan city. Its eighth-floor rooftop bar, La Terrassa, invites guests to sip cocktails while sunbathing, and the 24-hour fitness center lets them fit in workouts according to their schedules. This is particularly useful for business travelers, who may spend the better part of each day in one of the hotel's seven state-of-the-art meeting rooms. Style, however, rules everything. Sleek restaurants like CUIT Bar & Lounge (serving Catalan cuisine) and CRU Steakhouse join forces with public spaces like the lobby (where guests can mingle, relax or work) to create a hotel experience that is as beautiful as the city surrounding it.
