Royal purple glass bedside lamps cast a soft glow that enhances the serene setting. The marble and tile bathroom, with stainless steel accents, expands the bedroom’s contemporary color scheme. Along with a deep soaking tub and separate glass-enclosed rainforest shower, it features a vanity and Elemis bath amenities.

At the lavishly appointed Dry San Sebastian Bar, photos of famous guests reflect the hotel’s ties to San Sebastian’s International Film Festival. Renowned artists, actors, and locals patronize the English-style room that extends towards the hotel’s lobby and terrace. Try a selection of Basque pintxos, a local style of tapas. The extensive drink list comprises premium Champagnes and spirits as well as enticing cocktails, including more than ten varieties of martini.
