The Hotel Saratoga is an elegant building constructed in neoclassical/eclectic style on an attractive corner in Old Havana, at the intersection of the Paseo del Prado and Dragones Street. It stands opposite the Capitolio building and the Parque de la Fraternidad and has a spectacular view of the prestigious Partagas Cigar Factory and Cuba?s principal opera house, the Gran Teatro de La Habana. The hotel was originally built on the site in the 1930s and swiftly became renowned for its superb cuisine, the open air entertainments held in its pavement arcade and the concerts given there by such renowned musicians as the Anacaona Orchestra. The Saratoga was one of Havana?s most stylish establishments and became a favourite haunt of writers, musicians, artists and socialites from Cuba and overseas.Inside, guests are greeted by a daring and sophisticated interior design that sets a new tone for hotels in the area, evoking the kind of cosmopolitan spirit one might come across in New York or another big city. The mezzanine bar, under an atrium skylight, epitomizes this feeling with its mixed furnishings, tall palms and large mural showing a Cuban landscape. Just as inviting are the Anacaona Restaurant, its intimate adjoining bar and the rooftop restaurant, which offers good views of Prado and places of interest such as the Partagas cigar factory. The prevailing mood of elegance and tasteful design carries to the hotel?s accommodations, which combine classical elements with modern facilities (such as Internet access).
