During a recent pre-cruise visit to Barcelona, Spain, we stayed three nights at the Cotton House Hotel.
The new hotel, part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, has been open about six months. The Cotton House Hotel, located in Barcelona’s Eixample neighborhood, is in the former headquarters of the Association of Cotton House Manufacturers.
Guests to the 83 room five-star hotel enter through a reception area that could be called a “hall of mirrors.’ Next, they enter a marble octagonal hall (with a cotton ball at its center) that leads to two unique staircases.
The result is a beautiful work of art, which includes cotton boll-shaped hanging lights that dangle down the six floors. The elegant library, originally a conference room, is a popular spot to enjoy evening cocktails.
“Batuar,” the hotel’s cocktail bar and restaurant is named after the machine that pressed cotton to remove impurities. The cocktail bar leads into the restaurant, a glassed-conservatory and a large outdoor private terrace.
On the sixth floor of the Cotton House Hotel, guests will find a small rooftop pool (with a view of Gaudi’s iconic Sagrada Familia,) as well as a compact gym and spa treatment rooms. While the space offers great views, we couldn’t imagine spending time here with all that the city of Barcelona offers for visitors to see and experience.
The 83 rooms in the Cotton House Hotel are entered via heavy leather-covered doors like this one. Click here to tour Room 207 of the Cotton House Hotel.
We stayed in the Cotton House Hotel, one of Marriott’s Autograph Collection hotels using Marriott Rewards points. As a Category 8 reward, this hotel requires 35,000 – 40,000 Marriott Rewards points per night. We considered our points well-spent at this hotel.
