Hotel Nacional Cuba to celebrate 85th Anniversary with series of events

Havana's famous Hotel Nacional Cuba will be celebrating its 85th anniversary next month with a programme of events and activities.

The hotel's general director Antonio Martinez said there will be a series of activities to commemorate the anniversary of the historic hotel in Cuba, including exhibitions, photo contests and concerts.

For this remarkable milestone the Hotel Nacional Cuba will host meetings with young painters, exhibits with unique bottles of perfumes and rum, the launch of a new version of the book that was written about the hotel's history, and editions of postcards.

The hotel first opened to guests on 30th December, 1930 and celebrated with a very huge party at the Ball Room (Parisien Cabaret). The venue will host meetings, concerts and exchanges to celebrate the anniversary, including the redesign of the evening show of Cabaret Parisien, a photo competition for amateurs and professionals of any age, from the past and present, and visual arts exhibition.

A new version of the "Revelaciones de Una Leyenda" (Revelations of a legend) book, which was originally written by Luis Baez and Pedro de la Hoz, will be introduced, and 85 individuals and institutions in the tourism industry will receive a Commemorative Plate to mark the special occasion.

Now operated by Gran Caribe hotel group, Hotel Nacional Cuba is located in the Vedado district in Havana, steps from the sea.

The iconic hotel has welcomed an array of famous guests over the decades including Johnny Weissmuller, Ava Gardner, Buster Keaton, Errol Flynn, and Frank Sinatra, as well as many politicians and leaders.

Guests can enjoy the National Hotel's Hall of Fame, tropical gardens, and stunning ocean views. The property has 426 guest rooms, and facilities including swimming pools, restaurants, bars, and the small museum, La Cueva, which is located in the gardens.

Havana is the vibrant capital city of Cuba, an island nation in the Caribbean. The city boasts a variety of tourist hotspots including the Malecon, a seafront promenade that runs along the main streets of Havana and offers beautiful views of the bay; the Catedral de San Cristobal; the maritime museum, Castillo de la Real Fuerza; and the Old Town, a UNESCO site with restored buildings and the tourist square, Plaza de Armas.
