Like the country itself, Spain's best hotels are colorful and influenced by diverse cultures. You could opt for the royal treatment in Seville, where an iconic hotel commissioned by King Alfonso XIII has miles of marble, mahogany, and hand-painted tiles. Or unpack your bags in a Barcelona landmark where 1920s Vanguardista art decorates the interiors, and DJs spin tunes on the rooftop bar.
Not only are these properties alluring destinations unto themselves, but they put travelers in the heart of the action. So set out to explore from one of these standout hotels, as selected by readers in our annual World's Best Awards survey.
