The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts, which is a member of Marriott Bonvoy’s network of 30 remarkable hotel brands, has announced the inauguration of Santo Mauro, a Luxury Collection Hotel in Madrid, marking The Luxury Collection’s first property in the renowned city.
At the heart of Madrid’s aristocratic Chamber neighborhood, the hotel provides easy access to the city’s most exciting and coveted attractions. The Sorolla Museum and other cultural sites are just a short walk away, charming flamenco shows at the Teatros del Canal, and the Andén 0 Metro Station, an exhibition space housed in a restored tube station.
The ancient structure, which dates all the way back to the 18th century, was formerly the Duke of Santo Mauro’s palace.
The hotel’s bedrooms, public areas, restaurants, and gardens have all been thoughtfully renovated. Three buildings are surrounded by immaculate gardens with centuries old chestnut trees, all of which may be observed from the hotel’s lovely garden terrace. The 49 guest room resort is adorned with fine bespoke furnishings and art pieces and has ten spectacular suites with exclusive outside balconies overlooking the hotel’s gorgeous vegetation.
At the head of the makeover, renowned interior designer Lorenzo Castillo ensured that the next chapter of the building’s story honors its Spanish legacy with exquisite décor that represents the hotel’s extraordinary position in the center of Madrid.
Guests staying at the hotel will be enchanted by the luxurious, clean design elements, which infuse each restored area with an unmatched feeling of authenticity. Natural materials like stone, marble, and wood have been used to renew the guest rooms. Furnishings in velvety leather, dark blue velvet, and silk have been installed to give the refurbished palace a modern yet exquisite air. A neutral earthy tonal palette maintains a combination of traditional warmth and modernity throughout the palatial guest rooms and suites.
The hotel features famed Chef Rafael Pea, who has refined his skills in some of the world’s finest kitchens and has his own successful restaurant, Gresca, in Barcelona. Rafael will take over the culinary concept at La Biblioteca and El Jardin, presenting menus inspired by noble house dinners, including outstanding tasting menus and choices for the Spanish tradition of late breakfast and afternoon snack ‘La Merienda’.
As the name implies, La Biblioteca is a repository for priceless books and antiques, offering a welcoming ambiance of easy refinement to couples, families, friends, and groups.
This calm retreat from the city features an indoor pool, ideal for unwinding after a day spent seeing Madrid’s bustling heart. The second phase of the improvements, scheduled to begin in summer 2022, will include the addition of a new spa and exercise facility.
