of Barcelona, in Spain’s Catalonian region, the 168-room Hotel Ciutat de
Tarragona, offers smartly decorated rooms and amenities such as satellite
TV, direct dial phones and mini-bars. The hotel is close to the city’s
historic quarter at 5 Plaza Imperial Tarraco. Casual dining and tapas can
be found at Punt de Trobado, the hotel’s cafe and bar. Mediterranean
seafood specialties are served buffet-style at the hotel’s Mare Nostrum
restaurant. Meeting rooms can accommodate groups up to 500.
