The historic Hotel Ritz in Madrid has been reflagged under the Mandarin Oriental brand following a three year restoration programme.
The luxury hotel group acquired the 110-year-old property back in 2015, with Spanish architect Rafael de La-Hoz overseeing the historical restoration of the building, and French designer Gilles and Boisier revamping the interiors.
The Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid features 153 rooms, over a third of which are suites, and other facilities include a spa with heated indoor pool, vitality pool, experience showers, steam room and a fitness centre.
There are a total of five dining concepts overseen by three Michelin-starred chef Quique Dacosta: Deessa, with a menu celebrating locally-sourced produce; Palm Court, serving a “classic yet modern menu under a spectacular central glass canopy”; the Champagne Bar, offering “tailored pairings for guests”; Pictura, with a “curated avant-garde menu of cocktails”; and El Jardín del Ritz, “Madrid’s favourite al fresco setting”.
The property is located on Plaza de la Lealtad in Madrid’s commercial and cultural district and close to the city’s El Retiro Park.
The hotel is promoting an opening offer from €640 for stays until August 31, including:
- Full daily breakfast, served in the guest’s room or the hotel’s restaurant, for one or two people
- Guided city tour, highlighting the daily life of the city through its centenary establishments
- Credit of €150 per stay when booking a room and €300 when booking a suite, valid across all open restaurant and bars
- An original and unique historic Ritz gift; a piece of history to remember this once-in-a-lifetime occasion (limited stock)
The reopening of the hotel follows the long-awaited unveiling of the Four Seasons Madrid in September last year.
