Clever folks, those Ibis designers. This modest modern hotel just outside Plaza Santa Ana lacked any architectural distinction, so Ibis invented a theme that makes every room seem lively and fun. Each of the six floors is keyed to a Spanish wine region, while the individual rooms are named for a specific grape grown in that region. As you might guess, there’s a lot of purple and bright green in the accents of the public areas (red and white wine grapes, naturally) while each guest room has a large, scenic mural of vineyards over the bed. This is a budget lodging, so it has no cafe or restaurant (beyond the breakfast buffet). But the lobby does have wine dispensers with a nitrogen system to ensure the wines don’t fade after opening. During slow season, the hotel invites guests to free tastings in the late afternoon. At other times, you’ll pay a small fee per glass.
