Spanish Hotel Renovations

maria cristinaSeveral of Spain’s well-loved classic hotels are planning temporary closure for extensive refurbishment during the next two years. One is Seville’s Alfonso XIII Hotel (operated by Starwood), which is aiming to reopen in March 2012 in time for Holy Week and the Spring Fair.  In Granada, the Alhambra Palace Hotel will be closing for its face-lift in November 2011. Finally, we report that San Sebastian’s emblematic Hotel Maria Cristina (run by Starwood) is also about to close doors temporarily for extensive renovation, from October 9, 2011 through June 30, 2012. Several other celebrated hotels are also due for temporary closure at dates still to be announced. Valesa Cultural Services can keep you up-to-date with these developments.
