Hotel Arts Barcelona Upgrades with iLounge and State-of-the-Art Conference Equipment

The iconic Hotel Arts Barcelona in Spain is introducing the brand new iLounge in addition to state-of-the-art conference equipment in its over 37,000 square feet of meeting spaces and venues. This collaboration with Apple is a first for any Spanish hotel.

iLounge is a sleek, modern business center intended to facilitate convenient, high-speed network access for all guests, especially digital nomads. It’s informal styling and relaxed layout is intended to leave guests feeling connected to one another and their surroundings, catapulting the business center into the future.

Leisure travelers who wish to post travel photos and memories to social media, business travelers catching up on emails, and members of conferences held in the hotel’s newly renovated and technologically enhanced meeting spaces will all benefit from the newest additions to the hotel’s amenities.

A first image of this open-concept, connectivity hub has just been released. In it, new Mac desktops can be seen, elegantly appointing the workstations in the recently finished space. Stylistically, the iLounge is aesthetically appealing, thanks to consultations with Apple. It features marble floors, smooth dark wooden surfaces, plus chic art pieces and modern light fixtures. The space was modeled to resemble a high-class Apple store, marrying elements such as accessibility and practicality with the luxury and design for which Hotel Arts Barcelona is known. 

The uniquely executed iLounge represents a serious upgrade from the formerly available space. Aside from the benefit of newly installed computers, this modern computer lounge is conveniently located nearby the hotel’s conference and event spaces. Located on the lower ground and second floor, these 14, open-plan, highly flexible hotel meeting rooms provide capacity for around 1,000 people.
