Hard Rock Hotel Madrid opens in Spain

Hard Rock Hotels announced July 1 that its latest venture in Spain is open for business. Hard Rock Hotel Madrid is located at the Triangulo de Oro del Arte (Golden Triangle of Art) in the heart of Spain’s capital city. The new hotel is part of an expanding footprint in Europe for the Hard Rock brand.

“Hard Rock Hotels has always felt very in tune with the vibrancy and spirit of Spain,” Dale Hipsh, senior vice president of hotels for Hard Rock International, said in a statement. “It is one of the reasons we introduced the brand to Europe with Hard Rock Ibiza in 2014, followed by our Tenerife hotel shortly after.” Ibiza is an archipelago of Spain in the Mediterranean Sea while Tenerife is the largest of Spain’s Canary Islands off West Africa.

Officials said the new hotel caters to both business and leisure travelers, with 161 contemporary rooms and suites (from 194 square feet) with diverse views so “guests can take in the lights of Madrid or retreat from the city with a room overlooking the lush garden.” The hotel has more than 21,000 square feet of event space including garden and rooftop venues. The property also features an outdoor swimming pool, fitness center and Rock Shop retail store.

The lobby has a guitar sculpture on display and there is artwork showcased throughout the hotel, including a mural. The more than 70 piece memorabilia collection includes notable pieces like an acoustic guitar from Madrid-native singer-songwriter Antonio Vega; a blue denim jean outfit worn by Elvis Presley during an NBC TV special in 1968; and platform boots worn by David Bowie.

Other amenities include Hard Rock’s signature restaurant Sessions, which overlooks the hotel’s garden and serves a unique take on classic Spanish cuisine. There is also a rooftop bar with 360-degree views. Officials said restaurateur Maria Font Trabocchi played a crucial role in developing the hotel’s restaurants and food.

“The hotel is incredibly well-located and we are confident that it will soon become a social hub and meeting spot for residents in the city as well as visitors,” Trabocchi said in a statement. “The restaurants offer beautiful surroundings, the food is vibrant, and we look forward to the chef breathing his own emotion and energy into the restaurants now the hotel is officially open.”

Room rates start at $150 a night. More is at
