Hyatt announced today that the fourth planned Thompson Hotel in Europe will arrive in Spain’s fourth largest city. The property slated to open in 2026 will bring the first hotel in Hyatt’s portfolio to Seville.

I love Seville sign

Seville is a a beautiful city with lots to see and experience (my top picks can be found here). There are three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, flamenco music, Andalusian cuisine, and more to explore in Seville.

Currently, there are no Hyatt-affiliated properties within a 2.5-hour drive of Seville. The 101-room Thompson Hotel will join the three other locations in Europe found in Madrid (which opened in 2022), Rome, (expected to open mid-2024), and Vienna (which is slated to join the Hyatt portfolio in 2025).

Thompson Seville will feature a restaurant, a rooftop bar with a pool, dedicated meeting rooms, coworking space, and a gym. The expansion of the Thompson Hotels brand is reflective of Hyatt’s accelerated growth in Spain (the portfolio spans 11 different brands). Hyatt offers the fourth-largest hospitality portfolio in the country by room count.

Javier Águila, Group President of EAME at Hyatt, said:

We have ambitious plans for our brand expansion in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, and today’s announcement is a true testament to our continued success in strengthening our position and ever-growing brand footprint in the region. We are honored to work with Hoteles Color Especial S.L. as we start our journey in a new city for Hyatt – the vibrant Seville, in which we aim to create yet another unique and luxurious experience for leisure travelers. The Thompson Hotels brand has a vast potential in our region, and particularly in cities that combine a strong leisure and lifestyle offering.”

Anthony’s Take: I’m staying at my first Thompson Hotel next month in New York City. The addition to Seville will present another points-earning and redemption option in this Spanish city. I stayed last fall at the Querencia de Sevilla, Autograph Collection and loved it. I’d like to check out the Thompson Hotel when I next find myself in Seville.

Bad Service at Querencia November 21, 2023 - 1:39 am

Querencia has a Great location, But Service at the Front Desk sucks, Rooms are very ODD with sinks almost in the middle of the Room. smallest Rooms I have seen in Europe.. No upgrades for Titaniums & above. They will Nickel & Dime you for everything.
