After a seven-year restoration programme involving a collection of seven historic buildings, the new Four Seasons Hotel Madrid, the first property for the brand in Spain, has set 15 May as its opening date.
Regional president for hotel operations Simon Casson said: “Madrid is having its moment, and Four Seasons is at the centre of it with our owner partners OHL Desarrollos and Mohari Hospitality and our all-star team sharing our vision.
“With a soaring grand lobby welcoming guests at its heart, the hotel is looking forward to offering the highly-personalised Four Seasons experience in an extraordinary setting in a vibrant city.”
The property is in the Centro Canalejas, also home to 22 Four Seasons private residences and the Galería Canalejas luxury shopping mall, and features 200 rooms and suites including a triangular Royal Suite with double-height ceilings and historic details.
Other elements include more than 1,400sq m (15,400sq ft) of flexible function spaces, including the glamorous oval Sol Ballroom, which between them can accommodate business meetings and social events for up to 500 people.
There is also a four-level spa retreat with a sky-lit indoor pool and sun terrace looking out across Madrid’s rooftops. The spa will be the largest in the city, offering eight treatment rooms plus a salon and 24/7 fitness centre.
