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.
