Hotel Plaza, Havana, Cuba
The Hotel Plaza is a historic, picturesque hotel centrally located in walking distance to many Havana sites, including the Capitolio (Capital Building), Grand Teatro, Old Havana, Havana’s Chinatown, the Bacardi building, Prado (a broad, pleasantly shaded, and historic promenade in Old Havana), and the Malecón (picturesque road along the waterfront of Havana). Built originally as a family mansion in 1898, it was converted into a hotel in 1901. The property includes a beautiful colonial fountain situated in the middle of a courtyard surrounded by tropical plants, exotic birds, marble statues and colorful stained glass windows, where the glamour of the “Belle Époque” remains intact in each of its 188 rooms and lounges. Its Real Plaza and Los Portales restaurants are famous for their select cuisine, as well as the Fausto terrace-bar, located on the top floor. Albert Einstein and the Russian ballet dancer Anna Pavlova both stayed at the Hotel Plaza.
