Thessaloniki's landmark hotel is on the waterfront, affording great views across the city and the gulf, including Mount Olympus. It's part of the luxury Classical Hotels chain and offers amenities such as down comforters and pillows, marble bathrooms, stereo/CD players, and i-Pod docks. The service is superb, as are the breakfasts. The hotle has such welcome amenities as an outdoor pool, a health club, a hair salon, two restaurants, a bar and pool bar, babysitting, and free outdoor parking. (Indoor parking is 17€. Low season is July and August._That being said, the furniture in some rooms is sorely in need of replacement and certain areas of the hotel are starting to look dated. Fingers croseed that management is planning a renovation sooner rather than later.
