Description:
The Sevilla Hotel in Havana, Cuba, was built in 1908 as a four-story Moorish structure on Calle Trocadero, next to the Paseo del Prado, between the Malecón, and Parque Central by architects Arellano y Mendoza. It was bought by John McEntee Bowman and Charles Francis Flynn in 1919 and renamed the Sevilla-Biltmore Hotel. A huge ten-story tower wing, with a rooftop ballroom, was built in 1924 by noted architects Schultze & Weaver. The hotel was featured in Graham Greene's novel Our Man in Havana where character Jim Wormold joined the British secret service.

The hotel is located in Old Havana and was closely associated with Havana's mafia network, being part-owned by Santo Trafficante, Jr. It is currently run by Mercure Hotels.
