Subject: Barcelona Hotels, Restaurants and Sights
Hello Ziners,

I will be travelling to Barcelona on business in July. I would like to add a few days vacation onto each end of my business travel to see a little bit of Spain.

My conference location is Catalonia Palace of Congresses in Barcelona. The hotels closest to this location are very expensive 5 star venues.

Here are my questions:

1. Are there other hotels (3-4 star hotels) within reasonable distance of the conference centre that you would recommend?

2. Do you have any local restaurant recommendations?

3. What are the MUST SEE sights in Barcelona or within a do-able distance? I have never been to Spain.

Grateful as always, Lesley
