At a Glance

    Pros

  • at the very epicenter and, indeed, part of Bilbao's art and architecture excitement
  • the place to cross paths with Catherine Zeta-Jones or Antonio Banderas

    Cons

  • hard on the wallet and a little full of its own glamour

Gran Hotel Domine Bilbao Review

As much modern design celebration as hotel, this Silken chain establishment directly across the street from the Guggenheim showcases the conceptual wit of Javier Mariscal, creator of Barcelona's 1992 Olympic mascot Cobi, and the structural know-how of Bilbao architect Iñaki Aurrekoetxea. With adjustable windowpanes reflecting Gehry's titanium leviathan and every lamp and piece of furniture embodying Mariscal's playful whimsy, this is the brightest star in Bilbao's hotel design firmament. Comprehensively equipped and comfortable, it's the next best thing to moving into the Guggenheim.
