When traveling to Madrid, is there a good historic luxury hotel?

Magical Moments in Madrid

Madrid, Spain is both a grande dame and a colorful gypsy. Old Madrid is steeped with colorful history. Modern Madrid is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Beautiful gardens and spotless streets and neighborhoods showcase the Madridilenos' pride in their city and country.

Exploring the fascinating past of historic cities makes travel more memorable. Seasoned and discerning travelers choose a historic luxury hotel that lives up to the destination and exceeds expectations. The Hotel Ritz in Madrid is such a hotel. For starters, Hotel Ritz sits in the heart of the popular Prado area between Retiro Park, Teatro de la Zarzuela and Madrid's major museums. Stroll the elegant tree-lined Paseo del Prado and enjoy its bounty, including The Prado, Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum and Reina Sofia National Museum.

Accolades abound for Hotel Ritz Madrid. It is a member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World and both Travel & Leisure magazine and Condé Nast magazine cite Hotel Ritz as one of the top hotels in the world. Designed by legendary hotelier César Ritz, Hotel Ritz is reminiscent of a Baroque palace. King Alfonso XIII presided over the opening ceremony of the Hotel Ritz in 1910. Public areas feature soaring ceilings, antiques and priceless artwork. Dine in style at Goya Restaurant or casually in the Lobby Diana Lounge or The Ritz Terrace and gardens. Sip a signature Goya cocktail. After a busy day, retreat to a sumptuous and spacious guestroom or suite decorated in Louis XVI style with rich hand woven carpets, embroidered linen sheets and marble bathrooms. Classic elegance is complemented by modern amenities like wireless Internet, satellite television and a comprehensive business center. And, there is never a lackadaisical “manana” (tomorrow) attitude at the Hotel Ritz, exceptional attention to details and impeccable service are present day priorities.
