Built in 1929 to host the Spanish king’s crowned cohorts, Seville’s Hotel Alfonso XIII has never abdicated its role as the city’s premier address for discerning visitors. But even royal retreats occasionally need a makeover, which is why Starwood spent nine months and $25 million restoring the landmark—an Andalusian architectural confection of colorful tiles, carved plaster, and curlicue ironwork. Traditionalists may grieve over the disappearance of heavy furnishings from the 151 guest rooms and suites, but we love the lighter new colors, restored antiques, and sexy shimmer of vivid silks (everyone looks princely in the new peacock-blue American Bar). And now that the traffic-clogged streets once isolating the hotel have been converted into pedestrian walkways, the property feels like your very own private oasis in this romantic city.

Room to Book:

The Royal Suite is the hotel's most luxurious accomodation, with inlaid marble floors, antique furnishings, and a four-poster bed. Write a postcard on a desk fit for a king: The wood and brass antique used to be in King Alfonso XIII's personal office.

Insider Tip:

Ask for a hotel tour: You can learn all the secrets and treasures of this 85-year-old gem. Guests visit the museum, dining rooms, and some of the top suites, too.
