Hotel Santiago de Cuba

This five-star high-rise hotel is the real class act in town, although it's eyebrow-raising, Cubist-inspired post-modernist architecture stops many arrivees dead in their tracks. We actually like it, despite its gaudy blood-red and flamboyant sky-blue paint job framing the towering walls of glass. The vast atrium lobby gleams with marble beneath a soaring plate-glass ceiling. We've enjoyed many a mojito at the mezzanine piano lounge-bar to one side, but this Spanish-managed hotel also hosts the city's best nightclub – the Santiago Café.

The huge swimming pool is framed by palms and a thatched bar-restaurant, bringing a beachfront sense to the heart of the city. Guests can choose from four restaurants, two of them gourmet, including La Isabela – to many people, the city's best restaurant, and we agree. Since the hotel caters as much to business travelers as to tourists (it's a staple of tour groups), there's a well-stocked cigar store plus a fully-equipped business center and meeting rooms. Plus the gym is well-equipped, the ladies can freshen up with beauty treatments, and a small shopping plaza includes fashion boutiques.

It has 302 rooms, including 33 Junior Suites, are stylishly decorated with a hip 21st-century feel, although at last visit the rooms were beginning to feel tired. The floor plans, full of quirky angles, add to the sense of uniqueness. Over-bed halogens you can actually read by, plus Internet modems are highlights.
