Isadora Duncan


{San Francisco, May 26, 1877 — Nice, September 14, 1927}


Discover our Executive Deluxe Isadora Duncan:


In our 5* boutique hotel Torel Avantgarde in the center of Porto, we honour Isadora Ducan in one of our Executive Royal hotel rooms, with the possibility of a double or twin bed, terrace and outdoor bathtub overlooking the Douro River.

The inspiration for the room was based on the decoration of winter gardens, as a lot of the artist's shows took place outdoors. The room's tones refer to the colour of nature, the “stage” for many of Isadora's performances.
