Hotel Ritz Madrid has played a crucial role in Madrid's life and history since its esteemed opening in 1910 ... after all, His Majesty King Alfonso XIII was present at the time. The hotel itself was designed and built under the personal supervision of the legendary hotelier, Cesar Ritz. Today, Hotel Ritz is one of Madrid's most exclusive addresses. Here, guests are mere steps from Retiro Park, Teatro de la Zarzuela and the three most prestigious museums in the city: The Prado, The Thyssen Bornemisza and the Centro de Arte Monderno Reina Sofia. Each of the 137 bedrooms and 30 suites have been individually designed and feature embroidered linen sheets, hand-woven carpets, marble bathrooms and modern amenities. Twenty-nine suites overlook the hotel's garden, the lealtad square or The Prado. Dining is superb at highly acclaimed Goya, boasting a wide selection of international cuisine as well as Spanish specialties.
There's an aristocratic air at the Hotel Ritz Madrid, where my daughter and I felt like royalty on a recent visit. This baroque, palace-like outpost (part of the Orient-Express Hotels, Trains & Cruises collection) occupies an enviable location near Retiro Park and the Prado and Thyssen Museums. Our Belle Epoque-style room was a delight, outfitted with a handwoven carpet and embroidered linen sheets. Don't miss Goya Restaurant, the place to see and be seen - and to dine on scrumptious modern seasonal Spanish cuisine (the Sunday brunch is fabulous).
The Ritz Hotel is situated in the heart of Madrid near Retiro Park and overlooking the Stock Exchange Building and The Prado and Thyssen museums. Within walking distance of some of the capital's finest stores. The Botanical Gardens, The Reina Sofia modern art museum and the Zarzuela theatre. Barajas Airport is 15 km. away (25 minute drive).
