Meliá Bilbao is a soaring, rust-hued property designed by Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta as a tribute to the Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida. The hotel sits on the banks of the Nervión River, with incredible views of the Guggenheim (request a riverside room on the seventh floor or higher). The 211 spacious rooms, built around a ten-story atrium, come in red, yellow, and orange and are bathed in light from large windows. The marble fitted bathrooms are also spacious, and those in the suites come with a hydromassage tub and separate shower. Other highlights include a heated outdoor pool on the sixth floor, and the award-winning Aizian restaurant. Snacks and light meals are also served in the Café Chillida, which has an outdoor terrace overlooking the Doña Casilda Park.—Guy Fiorita
