So, if you’re headed to Medellin for a day, week, month, or hey, even a year, it’s nice to know the best places you can stay. Here’s a look at some of the best luxury hotels in Medellin.
The Marquee is a boutique hotel created for those who seek to live a hotel experience, The Marquee should definitely be at the top of any list of luxury hotels.
