I love Barcelona. In fact this was one on the few times I have ever felt deep regret when leaving a city for home. Most of you have read that I also love Hilton as a brand. And the Hilton HHonors program has some of the best benefits in the industry. So a perfect storm of sorts happened when we stayed at the Hilton Diagonal Mar Barcelona; we were upgraded to an Executive Level Hilton HHonors floor with a fantastic view of the Mediterranean Sea and access to the lounge. The Executive Lounge here boasts a fabulous terrace with views of the sea and the city, so of course that is where we spent our last evening discussing all of our new memories over a few glasses of Spain's beautiful bubbly cava, enjoying the gratis nibbles as the twinkling lights came on in the city of Barcelona.
We had a very early flight I the morning so we ordered a delicious light dinner via room service. My baby tomato soup, his mini-pizza and our shared eggplant lasagne were surprisingly great. Our wake up call came exactly at the specified time (I always ask for a backup to my phone alarm), and the front office manager even walked us out to make sure our cab was waiting. Now that's a true home away from home! See you again soon.
