Originally opened in 1912, this hotel showcases grand Edwardian style. The façade of chiseled stone and ornamental ironwork gives way to a large lobby with marble floors and columns, and a black-and-gold staircase. Glass chandeliers hang from high ceilings with gold-leaf cornices, and seating areas are furnished with antiques. Ormolu, mahogany, onyx, gold leaf, marble, and rosewood are seen throughout. Hotel guests are business and vacation travelers. Clientele often includes the glitterati—especially during San Sebastián's film festival.
