Melia Hotels International has announced plans for a new-build Innside property close to Madrid airport.
The 273-room Innside Madrid Valdebebas will be the closest hotel to the airport’s Terminal 4, and will form part of a new development which will also offer a private hospital.
The property will feature a rooftop swimming pool and lounge, as well as a fitness centre, restaurant and bar, and an adjacent 4,500 sqm convention centre.
Innside is Melia’s fastest growing brand worldwide, with 38 hotels currently in operation and a further eight under development. Recent openings include the Innside Madrid Gran Via, as well as UK properties in Liverpool and Newcastle.
Innside Bangkok Sukhumvit is also set to open towards the end of this year, joining three existing Asian properties in Indonesia, China and Vietnam.
Commenting on the news Gabriel Escarrer, executive vice president and CEO of Melia Hotels International, said:
“Innside Madrid Valdebebas will be a milestone in the lifestyle hotel segment in a very urban setting. Its disruptive design, unbeatable location and personalised and intelligent service will add to the value our brand brings to the property thanks to our operational excellence, service vocation and leadership in sales and digital distribution, creating a unique product with excellent prospects.
“That’s why we are particularly proud to be involved in this significant project for the city of Madrid, and also proud to have the confidence of a leader in urban development in Spain such as Pryconsa, with which we hope to carry out new operations in the future”.
