Gloria Palace Hotel
The Glória Palace is a fully-restored 1920s hotel that offers luxurious amenities and spaces that exemplify the style and grace of that famous decade. Featuring regal décor, walls with wood paneling, and private marbled bathrooms, each of the hotel's 348 air-conditioned guest rooms was designed to facilitate relaxation. They come with plasma televisions with satellite programming, access to high-speed wireless Internet, well-stocked minibars and private balconies with views of the city or bay.
A variety of services, such as laundry and dry cleaning, in-room dining, and luggage storage can be arranged through the hotel's concierge. Designer boutiques, a gourmet restaurant, and more can be found on the first floor of this establishment. In the spacious indoor courtyard guests can relax in winged-back chairs while taking in the antique accents and expert craftsmanship of this five-star hotel.
Tropical green foliage lends the interiors a fresh aspect and live music is played in the lounge bar with its velvet-backed booths and chandeliers. On the rooftop terrace, guests can go for a dip in the glass-bottom pool or soak up some sun while reclining on one of the deck's comfortable loungers. Drinks, snacks, and full meals can be ordered from the sky lounge bar and restaurant, which is adjacent to the pool area. A modern fitness center is open continuously for guest use.
Several internationally-recognized beauty treatments and massage therapies, as well as beauty salon services, are offered through the on-site spa. Event facilities include a ballroom and twelve meeting rooms and limited private parking can be reserved with anticipation.
