The World's 17 Best Hotels for Celebrity Sightings

The world's best hotels are as appealing to you and to me as they are to our favorite celebrities and diplomats.

Hotel Alfonso XIII, Seville, Spain

9 of 18

Spotted: Sophia Loren, Brigitte Bardot, Bruce Springsteen, Grace Kelly, Princess Diana, Audrey Hepburn, Madonna 

Is it any surprise that a hotel built for a king (King Alfonso XIII, specifically) would be a magnet for modern royalty? The property boasts traditional Andalusian design features, including hand-painted ceramic tiles, minarets, and swooping arches, and is just a short walk from the city’s main attractions (the Royal Alcázar, the Cathedral of Seville). Enjoy the region’s famed tapas on Michelin-starred Ena’s courtyard patio.

Why celebs love it: Early 20th-century antiques, gilt-framed mirrors, and a Spanish-Renaissance cabinet with mother-of-pearl inlay can be found in the stately Royal Suite. Countless diplomats and celebrities staying at the Hotel Alfonso XIII have requested this palatial space, complete with two bathrooms, an office, a living room, and a bedroom.
