Your Travel Guide
How could he describe ‘stylish’? Such a simple word, and such a refined thought, Barcelona’s Monument Hotel said it all rather simply. The sophistication of class and the smoothness of style came alive in its very design. Monument Hotel breathed aliveness. He remembered sitting at the Chef’s Table in the hotel’s Lasarte Restaurant, witnessing the creation of dishes expressly prepared for him. He remembered feeling very special as he watched the chef prepare his food, mirroring his likes and needs. For the chef, food was indeed love, and he shared it with the hotel guests. He was continually awestruck, and spent time like this to recount the day’s events, his successes and failings, and the chef’s expertise made him come to life. That was truly monumental in Barcelona’s Monument Hotel. He was not alone. The white marble of the foyers captured the scent of his growth and the cleanness of his past. He walked down the hotel corridors, and wandered up the stairs that led to his unrestricted thoughts and dreams. This was more than a beginning. It was in its truest sense a monument of his life’s work, a monument to his life’s love, a place where all his examined stages and steps were emblazoned in his very being. Barcelona’s Monument conveyed all of this to him and bespoke the time he had shared and now aggressively sought to recapture. Now he was back in the throes of it, resurrecting his past and painlessly forecasting his future.Read More Read Less
