Hotel Alfonso XIII Reopens Following Restoration in SevilleJun 1, 2012
The property’s 151 guestrooms, reflective of Seville’s rich artistic heritage, feature one of three design concepts—Moorish, Castillian, or Andalusian—defined by distinctive color palettes and custom-designed furniture. The hotel also offers three signature suites, which Starwood says is “designed to cater to a new generation of affluent travelers.” The Reales Alcázares Suite features warm, dark interiors and offers spectacular views over the Real Alcázar’s picturesque gardens and fountains. The sprawling Torreón Suite offers a private terrace that extends out into the corner tower with views of Seville. Finally, the 2,150-square-foot Royal Suite showcases hand-selected antique pieces including “Bargueño,” a Spanish Renaissance cabinet inlayed with mother-of-pearl which was gifted to the hotel by the Aga Khan.
For F&B, guests can choose from Bodega Alfonso, a modern Spanish restaurant featuring a spacious terrace; Taifas, a poolside restaurant and bar featuring Moorish-inspired interiors; San Fernando restaurant; and the Art Deco-inspired American Bar. In addition, the renovated Salón Real Ballroom is adorned with Bohemian-inspired crystal and bronze chandeliers and a new wrought iron door influenced by Andalusian cathedrals.
