- 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. The current building, recreated behind the Saratoga's historic façade, echoes the original in many details such as the soaring central atrium, French windows with mahogany shutters, the grand entrance and the magnificent roof terrace with swimming pool, bar/dining area and a breathtaking panoramic view of Havana's port and skyline. The interior decoration combines traditional detail with up-to-the-minute technology to ensure superlative service and comfort for guests. The Hotel Saratoga is Old Havana's grandest hotel, having been carefully designed for especially discerning travellers who wish to combine cultural and historical exploration of the city with enjoyment of its world-famous nightlife. The Saratoga has been given position 24 in Condé Nast's Hot List 2006, among 60 best hotels worldwide, based on how hotels care about their guests rather than just technology or how the hotel looks.'This is by far the smartest new hotel in Havana for years, providing levels of comfort other, admittedly more characterful, Havana hotels can only dream of.'
