The two flights of stairs (no elevator!) that lead to 7 Colors might dissuade the unadventurous, but the hotel’s bright, industrial rooms are worth the climb. Each one—down to the soap—is decorated in a single color. In the lobby you’ll find a convivial breakfast room with a communal table; just outside are the popular bars of the trendy Plaza de Santa Ana.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
