Locals may be growing slightly tired of interior designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán – a case of oversaturation as opposed to dislike – but Cotton House Hotel should wow most visitors. His style is perfect for this neoclassical 1879 landmark – once the headquarters of Fundación Textil Algodonera, the city’s cotton guild – and it’s just the mix of luxury and individual character that you’d expect from Marriott’s Autograph Collection.

Public spaces are stunning, from the palatial, mirrored reception to the lovely library-lounge, with their sky-high ceilings, frescoes and original floor tiles. Outdoor spaces are wonderful, too, with the courtyard terrace serving as the open air extension to the all-day Batuar restaurant and the rooftop pool terrace serving views of both Sagrada Familia and the Mediterranean. Think spectacular sunsets.

The 83 rooms, decked out in all-white and given cotton-themed names like Taffeta, Damask and Ottoman, are somewhat underwhelming and relatively compact for the price (standards measure 23 square meters and don’t feel any bit bigger), though well-equipped and otherwise comfortable. Just make sure to request a room facing the interior courtyard; Gran Vía sees a lot of heavy traffic, all day and every day of the week.

Pretty, boutique-y and with a relatively convenient location (in the less happening part of Eixample but only a few blocks from Passeig de Gràcia), this is a great place if you can get a decent rate or got Marriott Rewards points to burn (1/3 less needed here than at Hotel Arts). At mid and high season prices, you may want to shop around before finalising your booking (note that the gym is useless and the pool is tiny).
