Thanks to the San Sebastian International Film Festival, Hotel Maria Cristina, a Luxury Collection Hotel has become a choice accommodation for stars like Elizabeth Taylor, Woody Allen, and Brad Pitt. The lavish décor and silk brocades welcome guests, drawn by the the impeccably prepared Basque country cuisine in the onsite restaurants. The hotel has 3 function rooms - some of which have terraces - that accommodate up to 280 people and come with a range of audiovisual equipment and technology, not to mention all the decorative flourishes. The largest, the Ibaia, is decorated with carpets and chandeliers, gray-marble columns, and gilt-edged cornices. It has a terrace and connects to one of the 2 onsite restaurants. There's also a business center with high-speed Internet access.
Other amenities include space for exhibits, a fitness facility, a film-festival-themed bar, and a concierge. Safety-deposit boxes are available at the front desk. Self- and valet-parking options are provided for a surcharge.
