In Spain, the 173-room ME Barcelona will open in 2017 on Calle Caspe, in a central part of the city. Construction will take place at the site of the former Hotel Barcelona, which will be demolished. A new 15-story building will house the hotel as well as retail outlets and a parking garage. Further details aren't available yet, although Meliá Hotels, owner of the ME brand, promises dining, business and social venues, as well as an "Aura Manager," a fixture of the ME flag, who ensures "a truly unique and unforgettable experience" for every guest.
