Holiday Inn Cartagena Morros
Business travellers and families looking for the perfect pad to loosen their ties, creature comforts and easy access to international cuisine will feel right at home at Holiday Inn.
It's a 14-story chunk of a thing with a window fronted exterior that fits perfectly with the Miami style glossy promenade this up-and-coming neighbourhood is going for.
Originally designed as an apartment block catering to the 4x4 Jeep type of Colombian this place commits to a more American style living than a traditional Caribbean one. If it wasn't for the tropical fruit platters, nearby beach and jaw-dropping views from the upper floor rooms you would have to pinch yourself to believe you were on the Caribbean coast and not in a sprawling city metropolis.
The rooms are spacious and have a more homely feel than the boxy resort style rooms that we all know and loathe, and that's all because designer, Miguel Sotto, aka Designer God of Colombia, injected lots of colour into the common spaces and rooms, with vibrant tiles, bright square sofas and lamps littered throughout.
These rich designs redefine the boring business hotel concept that usually makes us want to pull a sickie. When form and function are served in equal doses the overall effect is professional and stylish.
For once your business trip won't be chore. The two stylish meeting rooms here definitely beat the home office. Staff are have lots of experience catering to the business crowd and can provide anything you need for deals to go off without a hitch.
The location is a winner. A safe distance away from the the bustling historical centre, you will be able to get your 40 winks in peace away from the crowds and the best beach in Cartagena is right on your doorstep.
THIS IS WHAT WE LOVE
* It's a resort style hotel that is infused with colour and personal touches
* Staying away from the maddening crowd and getting plugged into Colombia's new favourite barrio
* Staying somewhere that functions for business and pleasure, so you can mix meetings with a beach stop
* Spacious rooms that afford blissful daytime siesta breaks when you are not by the pool
