This landmark hotel from the waterfront makeover for the Olympics occupies the lower 33 floors of a 44-story skyscraper and is known for its contemporary art collection. The Ritz-Carlton–managed hotel is about 2.5km (1 1/2 miles) southwest of the old city, next to Port Olimpic. The spacious, well-equipped guest rooms have built-in headboards, bedside tables, generously sized desks, and sumptuous beds. Pink marble dominates the bathrooms, and views from the windows take in the skyline and the Mediterranean. The hotel also has the city’s only beachfront pool.
