Mandarin Oriental Ritz Madrid to open in summer 2020
The Hotel Ritz, Madrid is set to open in summer 2020 as Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid following the most extensive restoration in its 110-year history.
The property, which was designed and built under the supervision of hotelier Cesar Ritz, first opened its doors in 1910.
Mandarin Oriental said the restoration will “significantly enhance” the hotel’s facilities and services while maintaining its “unique character” and original Belle Epoque style.
Spanish architect Rafael de La-Hoz and French designers Gilles & Boissier have overseen the restoration and interiors respectively, incorporating a number of valuable artistic pieces from the property’s collection including crystal chandeliers and antique paintings across its 153 rooms and public spaces.
“We are proud and excited to be opening Mandarin Oriental Ritz, Madrid this summer, our second hotel in Spain,” said James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.
“The meticulous restoration is designed to ensure that this legendary property is once again recognised as one of Europe’s greatest hotels.
“We are confident that the local community will be even more proud of this historic landmark, and we look forward to providing our guests with memorable experiences, in majestic surroundings, all underpinned by Mandarin Oriental’s exceptional service.”
