On a pedestrian-only thoroughfare, this Spanish-owned hotel in the heart of the financial district is a good option for business travelers and cruise-ship passengers. Be sure to book a room in the newer part of the building—they're a bit pricier but worth every penny. There's a well-equipped fitness center, along with an indoor pool, sauna, and spa. The sunny breakfast and dinner rooms have nice sidewalk views for checking out passersby. The chain also has a property—Meliá
Recoleta Plaza—in the heart of chichi Recoleta.
