Radiology in the Basque Country – Hotel Plan Information
San Sebastian & Biarritz
Our conference starts in San Sebastian, Spain, at the newly refurbished 5* Maria Cristina Hotel. Since opening in 1912, the Maria Cristina has been closely linked to the history and cultural life of San Sebastian. This landmark building is situated in front of the Urumea River and the Victoria Eugenie Theatre Experience gracious hospitality on a grand scale in the hotel’s rooms and suites. It is decorated in a sophisticated palette of greys and white, reflecting the original décor in the Belle Époque style. The rooms are a quiet haven of luxury, style and modern technology. It offers a dazzling range of services which, combined, make for an unforgettable stay. A member of the Luxury Collection, it offers the best of modern amenities and 5* service.
We then move to Biarritz , the most famous Basque city in France. Once a significant whaling port, it was transformed into a chic resort when Empress Eugenie persuaded her husband, Napoleon III to build a palace there in 1854. The palace was converted into what is now the 5* Hotel du Palais, a grand “Old World” hotel at the north end of the Grand Plage.After World War II, the Hôtel du Palais was forced to close for a period in the 1950s. It took a campaign by the mayor to obtain funding to refurbish and reopen the building, under the slogan "No Palace, No Millionaires". Once reopened, guests have included Coco Chanel, Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra. The façades and roofs of the hotel were listed as historical monuments in December, 1993.
