Hotel Alfonso XIII, a Luxury Collection Hotel
This is the “It” hotel for Hollywood heavyweights; Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Ava Gardner, Jennifer Aniston, Tom Cruise, and Cameron Diaz are but a few of the stars that have visited. Built to accommodate the 1929 Ibero-American Exhibition’s most notable VIP’s, the grandiose 151-room Hotel Alfonso XIII remains the most lavish stay in town. Ornately decorated with a mix of Mudéjar, Castilian, and Regionalist styles, the intricately carved ceilings, vivid frescos, Moorish archways, and Triana tile-work contribute to a fairytale feel. Bedrooms run the gamut from classic Spanish to Arabic, featuring bespoke furnishings and bold hints of color. For full-on opulence, take a dip in the grand outdoor pool, walk the well-manicured gardens, or enjoy a meal at the elegant San Fernando restaurant, offering Andalusian cuisine in the flora-filled courtyard.
