The Querencia De Sevilla is a towering beauty in Seville. Newly opened in April 2022 and part of Marriott Bonvoy’s Autograph Collection portfolio, Querencia de Sevilla is located across from Seville’s most famous square. That said, you’re immersed in all things Seville without ever leaving the property. The design clearly shows mastery of the art of small details through handmade ceramic pieces, unique furniture, lingering scents of the orange blossom, and the flowing sounds of Andalusian music throughout.

Querencia de Sevilla has 95 stylish guest rooms, all of which showcase the beauty of the region. Pops of greens and purples that match the colors splashed throughout the city bring the rooms to life. The artistic detailing in each room nods toward Spain’s bullfighting history, while the handpicked floral and orange scents are reminiscent of Seville. Bath amenities like rain showers, lavish bathtubs, and robes make relaxation easy.

This dedication to detail can be seen throughout the entire hotel.

Querencia de Sevilla’s seventh-floor rooftop area (one of the highest terraces in the old town) is defined by lemon-yellow decor, a relaxing pool, and 360-degree views of Seville. During the day, surround yourself with views of the Giralda tower and the rest of the city as you take a dip in the infinite pool and unwind on one of the lounge chairs. However, the evening is when the magic happens. From the roof, you can see the Cathedral all lit up, and locals and guests alike stop by for bar snacks and cocktails.

For traditional food and drinks, the on-site La Maestria Restaurant and Bar, is the perfect representation of the history and traditions of Seville. Classic Andalusian cuisine using ingredients procured through local suppliers include gazpacho, cured ham, tapas, and fish. It’s served in an inviting space defined by art, royal blue couches, and pink-accented wallpaper, and the tapas are served on floral plates typical of the region. The restaurant’s outside patio is a true oasis, showcasing colors that represent the famous citrus trees of Andalusia and views of the main square. At the bar, the focus is on a wide array of sherries, and there’s traditional Spanish music like flamenco.

Things to do around the hotel

Along with La Maestra, head off property to try local favorites nearby, like Perro Viejo for tapas and La Casa de Maria for the best paella in town.

To explore other parts of the town, Marriott Bonvoy offers a number of tours that explore the region. You can can explore Seville’s impressive monuments and spaces on a 3-hour, private walking tour through the narrow streets of the Jewish quarter, the Catedral de Sevilla, Plaza de Espana, and the Royal Alcazar Palace. Or try your hand at being a ceramist for the day in the heart of Seville at Barro Azul Ceramic Studio.

You can experience the deep-rooted tradition of flamenco at Tablao Flamenco El Arenal. Before the show, guests have an hour or so to try an assortment of local tapas dishes like Iberian pork and Salmon tartare. As the lights are dimmed and the show begins, sit in awe of the vibrant dresses, swift movements, and musical art of the performers.

Regardless of how you choose to explore the city, Querencia De Sevilla is never too far away.
