A rooftop restaurant, budget rates and Old Havana location lure guests to this hotel.
Dating back to 1909, the Hotel Plaza has hosted a rich variety of luminaries, from ballet legend Anna Pavlova to Nobel Prize winner Albert Einstein. Stained glass domes patterned with Art Nouveau images cast colorful light down onto the lobby below, where foliage, a fountain and birdsong create a soothing atmosphere. The bar is located off the lobby, and the hotel houses three restaurants, including rooftop Fausto with sweeping Old Havana views. Rooms are simple but pleasant, with tile floors, dark wood furnishings and air-conditioning.
