Hotel Vedado This popular Vedado hotel is somewhat nondescript. Sure, it’ll do in a pinch, but it’s rather uninspired and uninspiring. Rooms are distributed in two neighboring towers, and there’s a kidney-shaped pool on the ground floor between them. Opened in 1952, the lobby retains the original Art Deco feel. The hotel has a tiny exercise room, where the best feature is a little sauna. The surly reception staff needs replacing.
This particular hotel has a fairly relaxed atmosphere, in spite of its location in quite a busy part of the city. There is a spacious lobby with comfortable furniture, and decorated with paintings by young Cuban artists. In general, the service is very good, both by the hotel staff and in the establishment’s excellent restaurant, El Cortijo, which specialises in Spanish cuisine. Popular among North American tourists, the hotel has offered an increased number of rooms and other improvements, such as a bigger swimming pool and a children’s play area.
Facilities: 2 restaurants; 3 bars; outdoor pool; exercise room; sauna; tour desk; car-rental desk.

If you don’t have a room on a higher floor, you can always spend time in the tiny rooftop pool or the new adjoining bar and events space.

Hotel Presidente an elegant Vedado hotel. The impeccable Victorian-style lobby features black-and-white marble floors, pink marble wainscoting, and real antiques.

On the 10th floor, you’ll find two large suites with wonderfully inviting oceanview terraces. There’s a refreshing outdoor pool on the ground level, and a poolside bar and grill. While the hotel is just 2 blocks from the Malecón, it’s not very close to much else.
Hotel Victoria This little business-class hotel (ca. 1928) is open, but will probably be closed for a lengthy period while being transformed into Cuba’s first designer hotel. British company Esencia Hotels & Resorts will reopen the new hotel in late spring 2009. Conran & Partners will design the interiors of the rooms, restaurant, bar, and swimming pool terrace. The refurbished hotel will feature a larger restaurant, cocktail bar, and a guests-only bar. Rooms will feature Wi-Fi, a built-in plasma screen, sound system, and desk-drawer humidor, among other facilities. The hotel will also have a gym as well as health and beauty treatments.
The current hotel in 2008 is a small, attractive business hotel close to the action in Vedado. Be careful here: The neighboring FOCSA building funnels the sea breezes right at the Victoria’s entrance. When the winds are up, they can almost knock you off your feet.
