HOTEL RITZ MADRID
Inaugurated in 1910 by King Alfonso XIII, this opulent hotel has long tended to the whims of royalty.
The Ritz Madrid is strategically located in the Retiro district, opposite the world-renowned Prado. The leafy outdoor terrace is a popular venue for traditional Sunday brunch, followed by a leisurely stroll in the adjacent Retiro Park. The Goya Restaurant looks out across exquisite gardens and offers creative Basque cuisine by Chef Jorge González. A recognized destination for high society, the Ritz Golden Book records an extensive list of celebrity and royal guests.
TOP SUITE ROYAL SUITE
Why we love it: Silk damask and Florentine-style painted woodwork cover the walls, while delicate brass ornaments and a fine oriental Ming Dynasty vase adorn surfaces. Walk on Fábrica de Tapices carpets and gaze at the sparkling crystal chandeliers. The Royal Suite can also be connected with a twin bedded Deluxe Suite. There are limousine and 24-hour butler services.
