Gran Meliá Colón
Located on a tiny orange tree-lined street, minutes from Seville’s main shopping area, the 189-room Gran Melia Colon features a majestic, show-stopping white and gold reception area with a centerpiece chandelier, ruby red circular lounge, and Philippe Starck rose petal-shaped chairs. In homage to the city’s storied artistic heritage, each floor is dedicated to a Spanish master painter’s artwork cleverly displayed on doors with gold frames and overhead portrait lamps. Rooms are a modish affair with gold leaf-hued headboards, white furnishings, and black marble baths. Upgrade to Red Level for quality extras including a choice of fragrant room scents and VIP breakfast lounge access.
