On our last night, per the recommendation and kindness of the folks at Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Jamie and I moved up the Passeig de Gràcia a few blocks to the incredible, minimalist Hotel Omm. Given that the vacation gods were shining down, we had our second jaw-drop-over-a-room-with-a-view experience when we opened the windows of our breakfast nook (we had a nook! with windows! and chairs! and a table!) to see this! (above). It was a bit like having a bird's eye view over the Champs-Élysées with perfect weather. Waiting for you in the room is a box of chocolates infused with Pop Rocks - one heck of a welcome. All the shades and lights can be controlled by remote. It kinda felt like being in the Jetsons. For a gal who likes the past, I sure like the future, too, it seems.
They have a wonderful roof with a tiny lap pool...
...and this kind of scenery below. They also have the Michelin-starred gastronomic haven Moo in the lobby where we consumed a bazillion course tasting menu of gels and foams with wine parings for our final meal. Kinda makes you never want to leave. Ever. Good to know we can always go back!
