Hotel Maria Cristina Reopens in San Sebastian, Spain

The 136-room Hotel Maria Cristina, a Starwood Luxury Collection property in San Sebastian, Spain, reopened following a US$25 million renovation. The nine-month project restored the interiors of the landmark hotel, which celebrates its 100th anniversary this month. A new restaurant, Tse Yang, is a haute cuisine Chinese establishment first introduced in Madrid 15 years ago. The property's Easo Restaurant and Dry San Sebastian bar have been refreshed as well. The project is part of Starwood's larger effort to restore landmark European properties, including Seville's Hotel Alfonso XIII, which debuted a multimillion-dollar renovation earlier this year, as well as the Prince de Galles, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Paris, and The Gritti Palace, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Venice, both of which will debut renovations next year.
