A brand new pousada, built into a really old fort

Pousada Cascais | Cascais Portugal

[CASCAIS, PORTUGAL] — In a cool old fort ringing the Cascais harbor is the Pousada Cascais, a brand new hotel voted on Conde Nast Traveler’s Hot List. Lot’s have been written up about it and it is certainly a cool location, nice and new but I was a little overwhelmed.  It is a little sterile, but still nice. More like a convention hotel on the inside; a little stark, but certainly nice. The location can’t be beat. Make sure you book a room with a harbor view, the inside rooms are a bit cold; my first room opened up onto the inside of the fort and faced the glass-walled workout room, so you kinda have to keep your drapes closed…which is what you don’t want to do in a seaside resort. But once a room opened up on the harbor the next night, I jumped at the chance and it made all the difference in the world. Fairly reasonable price. The room photos below show the harbor view room.
