Gran Meliá Colón
With anticipation and charm, Gran Meliá Colón Hotel gracefully entered the Andalusian limelight in the late 1920s, as the city of Seville prepared to host the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. Constructed with a neo-Baroque exterior and lavish décor, the grand city center hotel attracted socialites, discerning guests, and most notably, Spanish bullfighters – all of whom still frequent the hotel today. Through the years, the hotel began an illustrious love affair with the arts, most evident today in that each of its six floors are named after Spanish artists and include reproductions of their respective works.
With nearly a century of history to its name, Gran Meliá Colón carries prestige as the Hotel of Matadors and has earned a well-deserved reputation for providing exquisite accommodations and extraordinary culinary experiences. Recent renovations, directed by Philippe Starck, Marcel Wanders, and Edra, among other designers, have refurbished the hotel to its original grandeur. Guests are seduced by the hotel’s magnificent public spaces, adorned in regal tones of crimson and champagne, intoxicated by the cuisine of Burladero, Tapas y Tintos and Majestic Restaurant, and pampered by the avant-garde, sophisticated comfort of the nearly 200 accommodations.
With its enchanting hospitality, rich history, and prime location in the historic district, Gran Meliá Colón offers luxurious accommodation in the heart of Spain’s cultural and romantic capital, Seville.
