Accor has opened SO/ Paseo del Prado La Habana, with 250 guestrooms, including eight suites, across nine floors.
Located in one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods of Cuba’s capital city, it’s a one minute walk to Habana Vieja (Old Havana), a Unesco World Heritage Site with ancient monuments, forts, churches and palaces.
Heather McCrory, CEO, Accor North & Central America, said: "SO/ is one of the most high-energy, fashionable and edgy brands within Accor’s luxury portfolio, combining the vibrant energy of the locale, energising entertainment and creative food and beverage experiences with modern luxury service."
The hotel is designed by the French architect, Michel Regembal, and features works by fashion designer Agatha Ruiz de la Prada – including the hotel’s emblem and the staff’s uniforms.
The rooms have floor-to-ceiling views of the sea, nearby Malecón and Paseo del Prado.
"Our goal is to become the most sought-after lifestyle address in Havana – a city that captures the imagination like no other place on earth," said Jean Philippe Hubau, the hotel’s general manager.
The hotel also features a spa, gym and an infinity pool. The HI-SO bar can host events and parties on a rooftop terrace.
