Nacional de Cuba Hotel to get revamped for its 85th anniversary

Posted: 17-Dec-15 09:29

In order to celebrate the most iconic and famous of Cuba hotels turning 85 years old this coming 30th December, the hotel management group that owns it and runs it, Gran Caribe, has announced it will be investing a generous sum of money to upgrade and renovate its facilities to further elevate its high quality standards and keep it Havana's flagship, number one must-see hotel with its remarkably eclectic array of architectural styles that attracted many famous faces during the 30s, 40s and 50s.

Nacional de Cuba Hotel to get revamped for its 85th anniversary

Standing tall among Havana hotels as the one famous for having hosted the most distinguished guests over the course of its lifetime (which is nearing the 100-year-mark now), the Nacional de Cuba needs little introduction; but for those still unaware, it was “THE” place to stay in Havana for much of the 30s, 40s and 50s.

With various Hollywood celebrities and big personalities of the time all making a grand entrance here (from Winston Churchill to Frank Sinatra, and in more recent times, Robert de Niro, Arnold Scharzenegger, Maradona, Kate Moss and Paco Rabbane) the list of extraordinary guests having stayed here is extensive and covers a variety of A-listers.

So, it should come as no surprise that the hotel’s state-owned managing group, Gran Caribe Hotels is announcing a big investment to give it much-needed maintenance in some areas, to upgrade and revamp some facilities so that they meet the five-star rating standards of today, and to generally keep it as attractive as ever for many new years to come.

The announcement of the plans to renovate and refurbish the grand Nacional have recently been revealed as part of the celebrations to mark the occasion of its 85th anniversary this coming 30th December. A classical beauty that first opened its doors to guests at the end of 1930, the Nacional de Cuba was a ground-breaking marvel of the times, outshining competitors in the capitals with its grand elegance, distinction and first-class bespoke service.

After six decades of history and cultural acclaim, including the honour of having been declared a National Monument and being listed by UNESCO as a Memoir of the World, we are sure glad to see they won’t let its grandeur fade away. Here is to 85 more years; happy 85th birthday Nacional!
