When Spain's King Alfonso XIII conceived this hotel in Seville in the 1920s, it was designed to be the grandest lodging in Europe. The landmark property has indeed played host to visiting dignitaries, Hollywood stars, and European royalty in the ensuing years. Now, fresh off a $25 million renovation, the Starwood Luxury Collection hotel is more spectacular than ever. Rooms fuse modern features with design elements from Seville and Spain's layered past, including Andalusian, Castilian, and Moorish styles. Guests dine and drink in style at the Mediterranean-inflected Taifas, the clubby Bodegas Alfonso tapas bar, and the gorgeously restored Art Deco-inspired American Bar. Pair those amenities with a stunning pool and center-city location perfect for sightseeing, and there's no better place to stay in Seville.
