"Never say no when a client asks for something, even if it is the moon. You can always try, and anyhow, there is plenty of time afterwards to explain that it was not possible."
He gave in and the Ritz Barcelona was built
Francesc Cambó, a politician and intellectual, insisted that Barcelona needed to have a first-class hotel, like the Ritz in Madrid. This was especially important with events like the 1929 Barcelona International Exposition pending.
The architect of the modern hotel industry
At first, César Ritz did not want to build one of his famous hotels in Barcelona. He planned to reserve these architectural gems for the important capital cities of the world like London, Paris, and Madrid.
