Hotel Marqués de Riscal Hotel Review

: Located in the heart of the Rioja wine region, the Hotel Marqués de Riscal is no ordinary overnight destination---it's a "city." The original Marqués de Riscal winery was transformed by architect Frank Gehry into the "City of Wine" after a $77 million, eight-year renovation project. In addition to the original winery, the 24-acre property includes the hotel (housing 43 unique guest suites, each designed by Gehry), a wine library, restaurant, banquet rooms, a rooftop bar and lounge, a Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa, and meeting and conference centers. The exterior of this hotel/winery was inspired by the movements of Flamenco dancers: canopies of pink, gold, and silver titanium sheets cascade down from the rooftop and can be seen from miles away. Most rooms include such amenities as flat-screen LCD TVs, CD players and marble bathrooms. The restaurant, under the direction of chef Francis Paniego, combines traditional Rioja and Basque cuisine, and features dishes such as braised veal tenderloin au jus and sea bass with cream of peapod. In addition to the restaurant, the hotel offers a wine bar and a wine tasting corner. Guests can also take guided tours of the vineyards and visit the Wine Museum and Shop. From modern architecture to wine tastings to spa treatments, the Marqués de Riscal is more than just a hotel.
